In most states, nobody can marry someone of the same sex. Equal.
No, stupid, that's like saying things were when everybody could marry someone of the same race. The problem is the same race is not the same for everybody. Just like the same (or opposite) sex isn't the same for everybody.

I find it amusing, but not surprising, that you are so stupid you don't know monkeys have light skin, straight hair, thin lips and flat butts.

Polygamy is perfectly on topic in any discussion of marriage equality. Why do you attempt to censor it?
LOL. You are so dumb.
Look at the topic.
"Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage"
Nothing about polygamy.

If you were talking about pumpkin pie recipes, and I said you should find a forum about that, that wouldn't be an attempt to censor you, moron. Forums have topics, posts about other topics are called "off topic".
So, why won't you just go to a forum about polygamy? Can't figure out how to find one?

No, stupid. The problem is monogamy is not for everyone.

The judge overturned Prop 8. Prop 8 banned polygamy as surely as it banned same sex marriage.

Typical of your greedy self to try and hog all the victimhood.

Polygamy deserves the same consideration and respect as same sex marriage.

Marriage. There is no one right way.

You think our rights should depend on our sex genes, so, should you be able to marry twice, one for each set? Or not at all because you already have both sets?
The straight man in me is married.

The lesbian can't be married within her orientation.

However, she doesn't want to try and be stuck with Hillary or Janet.

Ss couples are not in any way 'married' like diverse gendered couples.
Ss couples violate the design of physical union.
Ss couples are still only ever a duplicate half of marriage.
Ss couples are mutually fruitless, a defect of mating behavior.
Ss couples infringe on the most distinct, unique and critical relationship of society. Imposing an imposter relationship by every measure of history and universal culture.

"San Francisco issues 563 same-sex marriage licenses over weekend"
July 1, 2013
On Monday, San Francisco’s City Hall was about as deserted as it should be for the first week in July, but that was hardly the case over the weekend.
Once the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals lifted their stay late Friday afternoon and allowed gay marriages to resume in California, same-sex couples rushed to the clerk’s office and kept coming throughout what was an extra special Pride weekend for some.
A total of 563 same-sex marriage licenses were issued since Friday in San Francisco, the only county in the state to stay open over the weekend for gay couples who couldn’t wait until Monday, said Assessor-Recorder Carmen Chu in a statement.
ON AVERAGE, ABOUT 48 COUPLES A DAY GET A MARRIAGE LICENSE AT CITY HALL, City Administrator spokesman Bill Barnes said. The city is encouraging any couples getting married in the near future to register online for a time to pick up their license, and Barnes said the city administrator’s office has added an additional 15 appointment slots per day.
And while few expected gay marriages to resume so quickly after the Supreme Court’s Proposition 8 decision on Wednesday, the 60 volunteers the city had been training to record and issue licenses and perform weddings still came through.
“I am deeply touched by the outpouring of support from our city employees and volunteers who took the time to be here at City Hall, working after hours and on their weekend, to perform our collective duties – that of ensuring that loving same-sex couples don’t have to wait to marry any longer,” Chu said.
They are not in any way 'married' like diverse gendered couples.
Ss couples violate the design of physical union.
Ss couples are still only ever a duplicate half of marriage.
Ss couples are mutually fruitless, a defect of mating behavior.

Your claim is laughable.

Browser,

Like sonne of man, you attack the person without addressing the message.

Why? Because like sonne of man, everyone judges your reasoning at fault.

You want people to decide, not based on what is known, but based on the slander about an unknown situation.

Just like sonne of man. His real name is Terry Crable.

What is your name?

No it's not u chooch. Race and gender are different characteristics. Marriage is a union of BOTH genders regardless of racial/ethnic combination. A mixed race/ethnic conjugally married couple are still husband and wife.

The ban on interracial marriage was intended to keep the "white race" and non white races from marrying and having mixed race babies. The various non white races could marry among each other. SSM is gender segregation sanctioned by law. Nice comparison, comparing laws against race mixing within marriage, to advocating laws for gender segregation within marriage.

Washington • If gay marriage is legal, what about polygamy?

It’s a long-debated political question, one that surfaced in Tuesday’s Supreme Court hearing on California’s gay marriage ban, known as Proposition 8.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor brought it up while questioning former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, a Republican who argued that gay marriage is an individual right and should be protected by the Constitution.

"If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what state restrictions could ever exist?" Sotomayor asked before referencing polygamy and incest among adults.

The point is with each victory for SSM, the odds that polygamy will be legalized in some form, increases.

HATE AND BIGOTRY WILL ALWAYS LOSE.

It also raises the question, which is being raised in greater frequently, "where is the line drawn?".

Are there not "ToManyLawsNow"?

Fine by me polygamy doesn't hurt me.

I think the "line" should be as follows.....anyone 18 years or older with full consent......There that is it no other law need apply.
