Nope. That's gender discrimination, plain and simple. A woman can marry a man and I cannot. That's not equal.
It's also beyond ridiculous for you to suggest that denying you something that you would never want anyway and denying the same thing to me, that I absolutely want, is "the same".
That's like passing a law that it's okay to beat the crap out of anyone posting to Topix using the name "Jane Dough" and claiming it applies equally to everyone.
It's also like claiming that laws enslaving black people are equal and just because they applied equally to everyone, regardless of race. The law said that black people are slaves, and that law applied to white people as well because it clearly states that white people aren't slaves. Equal/equal, right??
But, again, I'm wasting my time explaining all this to you since, being a practicing attorney, you already know all of this, right?
So why do you continue to pretend you don't? You'd rather be seen as an attorney with absolutely no knowledge of the law or basic civics than a bigot?
I know you don't think so, but all you wrote is simply nonsense...

the root assumption you need me to make is that a man and woman is the SAME as a woman and a woman, and they are not...

so, yes, you are wasting your time...

slinging the word "bigot" is useless, and you have nothing else to offer...
except your suggestion at what i do for a living, and as usual, you are flat wrong...
no reason for you not to insist for another few months though, right?
...I mean reality aside as usual huh, Johnny?

Don't flatter yourself. I probably type WAY faster than you do.
And by "error"--you're referring to the error you made when you tried to make us all believe you're an attorney, right??
I don't care what you believe....
do you even grasp that your beliefs have no bearing on reality?

I know you don't...

But please fell free to waste your time in insisting what I do for a living...seems a trivial way for you to spend your day but...
as I said, its not like you have anything else of value to offer....

Just like those uppity blacks were DIFFERENT from whites--no worse, just not the same-- and should only have been allowed to marry other races except for whites?

You continue to claim this, but you STILL have not put forth one scrap of support for it.

Let's try this. Let's see if I can simplify this enough for you....

Three couples come to you wishing to get married and you get to decide who gets a marriage license and who doesn't. It could be all three of them, one, two or none of them. The only catch is that you need to give them all valid, constitutional reasons for your decision and those reasons have to be relevant to a couple wishing to enter into a civil marriage (i.e. no religious excuses because we have freedom of religion here).

One couple is one man and one woman. The next couple consists of two men. The third couple is two women.

Who do you allow to marry and who do you deny and what reason(s) do you give them for either allowing or denying their marriage license?

Legally and civilly, they are. Can you put up any evidence that they are not? Please DO demonstrate for us how the presence of or absence of certain types of genitals is material when it comes to equal protection by the government.

Also, since you obviously couldn't answer my last question without exposing yourself as the fraud that you are, let me ask it again:

Three couples come to you wishing to get married and you get to decide who gets a marriage license and who doesn't. It could be all three of them, one, two or none of them. The only catch is that you need to give them all valid, constitutional reasons for your decision and those reasons have to be relevant to a couple wishing to enter into a civil marriage (i.e. no religious excuses because we have freedom of religion here).

Federal law does decide if you can marry or not; it only tells what the feds can or can't do on the matter.

Yes, they are. Men and women enjoy equal status under the constitution. REAL lawyers know that.

Under current federal law??????? Who said anything about that? You wouldn't be trying to move the goalposts now would you? <smirk>

Thinking you can change reality by changing the parameters has an absolute bearing on you, huh? Weren't you just arguing that marriage is a State's right, and now you try and throw in an "under current federal law" argument? You dance funny.
