A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

Rock n' roll, R&B, funk, dance, electronica, jazz, country or western. Black, white Hispanic or Asian. This marriage proposal might make you cry.
And anyone who even SNIFFLES watching this can't deny they don't understand SAME SEX MARRIAGE isn't any different than what they see here in this AWESOME proposal I love how he just kneels and waits for her answer, never says a word. Dude stole my script!!(It's the same fantasy ending I had in every one of my marriage proposal dreams and two realities.)
It ain't the equipment any of us (gay or straight) want to commit to. It's the person INSIDE the body.

Sort of sad if we think about it.
All these trolls thinking of their own mother's marriage as nothing more than a contact to be a bitch at a puppy farm.
Now watch what "marriage" means to most of us and enjoy!

It was a direct response, dumdum. You said most people don't know you're a lesbian trapped in a man's body. Which is a load of bollocks. Just like your claim that you're a hermaphrodite and a genetic chimera. You also claimed to be a monster mutation. You're just a mass of cliches aren't you? Or are you hoping we'll believe that you're a combination of two distinct sets of DNA that have experienced a mutation as well?

If you want a response to the first half of your comment, it looks like more of your typical gibberish. You seem to be claiming all homosexuals are sterile. They're not any more apt to be sterile than the population as a whole. The only inequality present when comparing same sex marriages with heterosexual marriages is the obvious one. The number of sexes present. That has no bearing on the participants ability to commit to each other.

Every single solitary straight person who has publically announced their opposition to same-sex marriage is in essence "outing" themselves as proud heterosexuals.
You guys get on television and go on and on about the evils of homosexuality, which is an explicit endorsement of the notion that heterosexuality is THE ONLY acceptable orientation in their eyes.
Your very protest against gays and same-sex marriage is a flagrant example of how you proclaim your heterosexuality.
And Randy, you do use media to announce your orientation. You're here talking about it right now.
Bottom line, LGBT people are going to continue to "come out" until such a time that it is no longer necessary.
You might as well get used to it.
No sir, there is a big difference between making a publicity stunt, and voicing our opinions about the current state of marriage law. That is below your intelligence to even try that. I am now the disappointed one. You infer that merely voicing opposition to your cause is "coming out', and that is not the case.

As for "us guys", getting on television and going on and on about the evils of homosexuality, is our response to your getting on television and going on and on about the needs of homosexuals to marry. If you stop it, then we won't have anything to respond to. We have never gotten into the public eye and said, EXPLICITLY, "I am straight, and I'd like to thank all my supporters, etc". That is solely the demesne of the homosexuals. We both know this, and to act as if it is quid pro quo is intellectually dishonest of you. We both know that banging the drum about the issue is a public cry to rally, but to get up and say "I am gay" is a personal message about oneself, and, again, we both know this. 2 different matters entirely.
As for labelling this forum "Coming out", that is preposterous.

Finally, "Bottom line, LGBT people are going to continue to "come out" until such a time that it is no longer necessary." is an open declaration of continual harassment. You and I both know that there is no "need" to "come out", it is a desire to feel equal to us that drives your kind to do this, not any kind of imagined "need". I feel no "need" to tell anyone what my orientation is, it doesn't matter.
Sir, this post of yours has left me a little glum, I expected better from you.
We will not "get used" to being bombarded by your inferior side trumpeting on about how equal you are, when your need to dispute some inferiority complex is conceived form within. Please stop it at once, I don't have to know, I don't want to know, and I find this to be similar to your need to get to our children in schools first. We don't want our kids indoctrinated before they're even old enough to know about sexual matters, at all, and we don't you to shovel it down our throats, either. you have no right to tell us about yourselves, and we object to this telling of unnecessary information. That's one of the many problems with your issue, you're too pushy. And y'all whine when we push back. I believe that the next time someone tells me that they're gay, I'm going to tell them to go away and leave me alone and not to talk to me, again, which I've never done, before.

I exposed VV's claim as an idiotic gay twirl lie.

The only counter was not direct responses, they were ad homoan gay troll attacks.

I never claimed homosexuals were sterile, I accurately noted that ss couples are desolate and barren.

There is no such thing as ss 'marriages'. It is an oxymoron.

Numerous relationships 'commit to each other' without being called marriage.

Consider yourself schooled.

And a liar.

Families are the foundation of society, the building blocks. Especially marriages with children. Thus justified government perks. To encourage marriage. If there were no government perks for marriage, we wouldn't be having this discussion.
I believe there should only be government benefits for families with children regardless of their parents marital status or sexual preference. And lesser benefits if any for families without children since marriage is good for society. ALL marriage, even unpopular ones like those child molesting welfare cheating polygamists. And yes, siblings.
WOO HOOO! Gimme some lucky charms.
Beautiful point. Excellent!

We have jobs. This is the job; watching you. We, most, work for Government Watch Project Aa All Utah '48. We sit here and monitor this crap and record the file entry of each poster which is cross referenced by the IP number/telephone landline & physical address/name of sender. We cross this with times of day relative to posted work schedule or other reference schedule under your Social & public record term search. Happens pretty fast but makes for a hugely boring read for a hugely boring day.

"...a desire to feel equal to us..."

"...bombarded by your inferior side trumpeting on about how equal you are..."

"We don't want our kids indoctrinated..."

"You have no right to tell us about yourselves..."

----------

1.) I DO feel equal to you. Is there any doubt in your mind that people like me are not your equal?

2.) No one is indoctrinating your kids. I don't know about you, but knew about gays when I was very young. If I'm not mistaken, it was a preacher who talked about it. Then I clearly remember a pamphlet from church that talked about Sodom and Gomorrah--showing men touching other men.

3.) What is it that bothers you so much about our telling you about ourselves? I doubt that any gay person has ever said anything more to you than "I'm gay". If anyone has regaled you with explicit details of their sex life, then that person was an idiot.
Typically, it's you guys who let your imaginations run wild--grossing yourselves out with lurid images--wondering to yourselves, "who's the man and who's the woman?".
When I haven't spoken to someone in years and I reconnect with them on facebook, one of the first questions they ask is "Are you married?" Second question is "do you have kids?"
I respond honestly and say, "No, I'm gay."
What's so disturbing about that?

Keep guessing toots. I'll give you a hint though. My wife does like to ride pillion. We've been married for almost 15 years if that helps you figure things out.

That bike, BTW, is a 1978 Honda 750 I bought new. By today's standards it is overweight, underpowered, and has inferior suspension and braking. I still love it though, lots of happy memories and miles.

There are some competitive gay riders. Homosexuality doesn't limit coordination, stamina, or courage.

Lastly, I favor Caterpillar boots. They're comfortable and durable and relatively water resistant.

You've schooled no one. You referring to anyone as a liar is quite hilarious. Your claims about yourself are unproven and a bit farfetched as I've pointed out recently and not so recently.

Homosexuals are no more barron that heterosexual couples that resort to artificial insemination, surrogates, etc.

I suppose the numerous legally married gay couples will be surprised to find out you've declared their legally recognised marriages don't exist.

Smirk!
