Gay is not the new black, no matter how much screaming to the contrary. This is Topix, speaking ones mind is recommended. A differing viewpoint is the democratic way.
No one is trying to say gay is the new black. Interracial marriage is not specific to black and white couples. I live in LA and have plenty of friends who are Asian and Mexican couples, White and Persian, Black and Persian, ect.

Same sex marriage is an issue regarding marriage equality same as interracial marriage was once an issue of marriage equality. Same as a Woman's right to vote was once an equality issue same as the right for Blacks to vote was once an equality issue. Black men were allowed to vote before woman. So when women fought for the right to vote as well, would you have to told them, female is not the new black as if that some how meant they should be allowed to vote?

Sorry, fucwit, but if you want a historical perspective, gays have been killed and imprisoned LONGER than blacks were in chains. From a modern perspective, racial civil rights were granted long after any blacks were in chains. Rights are the property of ALL citizens, regardless of their group affiliation or history.

Get a clue "fucwit". You've got rights. Just because you've got a sexual perversion to sleep with other dudes doesn't make you special. Like I said, comparing an outspoken group of perverts to the blacks and their hardships of the past, is laughable.

There are/will ALWAYS be certain people who cannot marry the one they love. Siblings, Father Daughter, cousins...etc. Redefining Marriage to fit a deviant sexual lifestyle is absurd. Single people don't get any marriage benefits either, why are they discriminated against? Marriage is not all inclusive, never has been, never will be, no matter how much the gays holler about it.

And there will always be ignorant fools attempting to rationalize away the rights of others.

The reality remains that there is a compelling state interest served by denying incestuous marriage. Marriage is still a choice, as is the CHOICE to remain single.

The constitution mandates that states must provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws, and the courts have clarified that even constitutional rights, like equal protection, may be suspend if doing so serves a compelling state interest.

Can you indicate any such interest served by denying same sex couples the right to legally marry? I doubt very much that you can.

To bad logic doesn't work on these idiots! But I will say that Minnesota is still the 12th state to pass marriage equality and come next week,Prop 8 will once and for all be gone in California! Not to mention part 3 of DOMA being thrown on that great crap heap of history! And that will be the 13th and most populous state so far! Equality and the American way marches onward! I wonder which state is next?

There are millions of hetero perverts who can and do marry. Even by your bargain-basement standards, your argument doesn't work.

We are gay, we are citizens, and we are claiming our equal rights. SSM in all states is inevitable. I wanna hear you cry when that comes to pass, little man.

The perversion is in YOUR mind. Stop projecting the sexual images that reside there on others. Everyone else is talking about MARRIAGE.

The fact that you can't keep fantasies of sexual perversions out of your own mind in a conversation about marriage is YOUR personal problem, not ours.

And of course all civil rights struggles are similar. They start with irrational people like yourself denying basic civil and human rights to a minority group, based only on lies, irrational hatreds and animus.

That you can't see a similarity to your own irrationally hateful words and thoughts toward gay folks, and the SAME words and thoughts that harmed so many black Americans, is really a symptom of your own mental problem.

It's called bigotry, and it's always ugly, no matter who it is aimed at.

All bigoted homophobes write this kind of thing when they think they are totally anonymous. They're fulfilling the need for homosexual encounters by talking about it incessantly.

If this heretically insane trend continues, Michelle Bachman will have to order god to escalate his program of systematic punishment of America. Judging from the look in her eyes, she wouldn’t hesitate to do it. Spoiler alert!
I'm hoping this is sarcasm.
