Things change over time. They do!<quoted text>
Yeah, 6 years ago is ancient history, how in the world has mankind functioned all that long time in history? It went by in the blink of an eye, get real. And on top of that, why is that an excuse? Are you like the Obama security spokesman, "dude, that was like 2 years ago"?
Opinions on SSM become more positive every single day. Every single day more and more people realize that SSM should be allowed. Espically the youth (more of them turn 18 everyday).
Would you like me to make you a list of EVERYTHING that has happened politically since 2008?
And I'm pretty much talking about just the stuff that would be relevant to SSM. Would you like a long list of those things?
And I didn't even go into the issue of polling corruption. In other words, I don't think the majority of Californians (or anywhere else), in 2008 (or anytime in my adult lifetime; I was born 1975), would have voted against SSM.
I personally believe that the election was pretty much rigged by biggots and hate-groups, just like SC 2006, TX 2005, etc. Also smoking ban ones such as OH 2006, NV 2006, FL 2002, etc. And A BUNCH of other stuff. I'll elaborate if anyone brings it up.
Although it is extremely difficult to absolutely proove something like that for obvious reasons.
I have plenty of Reasonable Suspicion, even Circumstantial Evidence. However I do not have absolute proof at this time. I wish I did. I hope I do later at some point.
Anyway, mooting all that (in other words, even if the other stuff were not so) Just the fact that that so many things have changed since then. That is enough of a reason to discount anything from that long ago.
ESPECIALLY when it is a political issue such as LGBT and SSM, which changes day to day, and month to month. And that change is ALWAYS in the direction of acceptance and legalization of SSM. It NEVER goes the other way.
It actually did happen ONE time in history. It was in the late 1970s, when this lame-@$$ celebrity douchebag named Anita Bryant succeeded in stirring up Homophobia. Of course everybody else (gay and strait) got together and boycotted her and caused her to go bankrupt (and rightfully so!)
And then, right after that, came the early 1980s, and the HIV scare. And that caused some Homophobia, bigtime.
However, then shortly after, you had the coming out of lots of older celebrities, such as Liberace and Rock Hudson. Especially Hudson, he was considered like you know, "stereotypically strait" if you will, especially by people of my grandmother's generation. He was the celebrity they all had crushes on if you were a girl. It turns out he was more into guys, lol. And yeah that totally maid people think about like stereotypes and stuff.
And since the 1990s it's been pretty much uphill, as far as LGBT issues go.
In fact LGBT is the ONLY Political Issue, that I am aware of, that did not suffer in the 1990s, nor 2000s. Everything else (including Tobacco Use, or "Smokers Rights", if you prefer) suffered heavily!
Anyway, I'm gonna stop and truncate this post. The next part answers ur other contention about the courts and stuff. I'm almost out of room, and also, I want to have that as a separate post, that I can link to in other discussions. So yeah, more follows.
