We've already seen captured and dead women in combat, haven't we?
Gender doesn't make it any more or any less terrible.
The only difference is the title they held, not the danger they were in.
And again, many women would not qualify under today's standards, and most folks DON'T want them lowered. I doubt there will be many female Navy Seals, for instance. But, for those women out there with the physical mental and emotional to that job - or ANY job - should have the same chance as the men, should they wish to apply.

There's no equality when gays can change prevailing laws and customs, but polygamists cannot. Stupid Chongo...
All other rights besides gay rights are non-issues. They just aren't an issue. They are not equal rights issues, they just aren't! Why are all fundies racists?

How do you like my Rose_NoHo imitation?

Did you see Demi Moore in that one where she was in SEAL training? Back when she was HOT! Before she hit the wall. Actually I'd still do her. But hell, that means nothing. I did some real slobs in my days!

I agree. Let them serve in combat. Women are more ruthless than men. And they're not bound by our code. They kick em in the balls when they're down already! Like they do us just for fun but harder.

No, dumb-ass, they are examining the ramifications of this case. Confusing for you, but, there it is. There are, as you well know, many arguments against SSM, but you refuse to acknowledge any. It does not invalidate them, it merely infuriates you to the point of ignorance. As we all know.
Yeah, there are arguments against gay marriage, but none of them are any good.
Come up with a good one.

Ha Ha funny one. See any 3rd grader for much better ones.

So is that your best argument Fruitcake?

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia correctly says the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not apply to sex discrimination or sexual orientation cases. Activist federal judges, on the other hand, see the 14th Amendment as a blank check to legalize whatever conduct they happen to approve of, such as abortion, homosexuality, & gay marriage. But these activist judges are destroying federalism by bringing about a massive transfer of power from The People and the States to their own black-robed selves.
So, there's that...
Oh, so a justice that doesn't agree with you is an "activist" judge.
Bigfoot, you are just dumb and ugly.

Whoa...
Well, let me try to explain it to you.
Christians say "Amen!"
So, I used the term "Ramen!" when talking about the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Because ramen and spaghetti are both types of pasta, and "Ramen!" sounds similar to "Amen!".

Why? This is a perfectly good marriage equality thread.
