True, and different judges can interpret the Constitution differently, as we have seen with this issue.
Well, except that all the judges that have heard the Prop 8 and DOMA cases have agreed that they're unconstitutional. On that they all seem pretty much unified.

Imaginary Playmate Bless America
"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. "
Imaginary playmate Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
Imaginary playmate bless America, My home sweet home.
Thanks paisan that was funny.

Movie suggestion for Big D!

Imaginary Playmate 2006.

Director: William Fruet
Writer: Christine Gallagher
Stars: Dina Meyer, Rick Ravanello, Nancy Sivak

Suzanne and her stepdaughter Molly move into a new house, hoping to start afresh after Molly's mum passed away. When the seven-year-old makes an 'imaginary friend' named Candace, Suzanne assumes it's just her way of coping with everything that's happened. But as Molly's behavior becomes ever more erratic, Suzanne begins to suspect that her stepdaughter's new playmate might not be so imaginary after all.

Facebook may stop allowing beheading videos, don't worry that's the new form of entertainment for Muslims and their respective countries.

Just restrict them to Muslim countries ONLY.

You're OK too paisan. Imagine if we left this thread to Big D and his ilk, they could chat all day amongst themselves and try to out-liberal each other.

Imagine if an airplane engineer generalized facts like you do. "That part is not bad, it is different."
I have been 'telling' people the facts that conflict with the reality. You are enabling denial. You think that is a caring thing to do. It is not.
I would guess that you have a 'haunting' in the back of your mind about your condition. To justify it, you seek others to accept your 'mosaic' denial by trying to justifying theirs.
Your last thought about children is a perfect example. And just a note; Reality doesn't need the law to exist.

Ok, but people are more than their bodies (machine parts). An aircraft does not have feelings.
A genetic mutation or a sexuality differentiation does not make a person less valid, and I don't agree that anyone ought to think so. True, those who are not procreating are not serving that aspect of the species; but then who's to say it isn't part of nature's design to limit itself. Besides, gay couples can have children in various ways if they choose.
I don't have a haunting, I was wondering if you did! Like I said before if you're happy calling yourself a monster then that's Ok. I would wonder about Anybody who called themselves by a derogatory term.
No, reality doesn't need the law to exist, but the law is part of reality. The reality is if the law says marriage includes SS then it does. Marriage is a legal document and definition not an entity unto itself.
You are not being honest.

-The point is not about feelings, it is about distortion.

-Where have I said being a mutation makes me less valid? Nor is the mutation my fault. It happens to make me distinct. And an incredible curiosity. I find that a positive extremely often.

-You can 'say' homosexuality has any reason for existence. Only some are true. See the difference?

-Ss couples cannot 'have' children. Do you see what your denial is trying to equate?

-Yes, the law is a part of reality. But no, if the law denies reality, reality doesn't change. The reality is, the law is simple wrong.

Do you feel a 'haunting' now?

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of several 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?

What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult HOT CHICKS with BIG TITS do anyone?

Oh, I forgot to say KiMare.
I have no denial or need for justification. Like I said you use the word 'chimera' and I use the word 'mosaic' but we are actually referring to the same thing. I am not trying to justify my intersex (your word here is hermaphrodite). It needs no justification. I am who I am and am completely accepting of myself. I was not trying to justify myself by justifying you, I was curious and slightly concerned as to your image of yourself because of you calling yourself a monster. Mutation, Ok, but monster implies something horrid to be disliked.
'Mosaic' and 'chimera' do not refer to the same thing. The DNA of two people in one body is not a mosaic, it is a genetic mistake. The same thing is true of being intersexed.

I accept the reality of that, you apparently do not. You cannot therefore, honestly be accepting yourself.

As to monster, it is a tongue in cheek acknowledgment of the degree of my mutations. Just a note, I have not shared them all. Which brings up another meaning of monster; large.

You deny you have no denial, but then you go an prove you do over and over. It would not be a stretch to say you have a terminal case of denial...

And my point, all along, it's that your "reality" is yours alone. The bitch slap that you're so anxiously awaiting isn't going to happen. Or, should one happen, you'll be the one getting slapped; perhaps by your inner lesbian. Your tenacity is admirable, but ultimately failure and disappointment are yours.
Troll on, Kuntmary.
See my post above.
