I have more confidence in the Windsor case, incidentally. Deciding this case against Windsor would be tantamount -- of the justices, of whoever decides against Windsor -- to behaving like walking, talking, subhuman monstrosities whose senselessness would be like a declaration of *open war* upon ANY respectability the supreme court might have, and worse.

There's no way you can rule in that case, zero, none, zilch, and say that Windsor must pay *hundreds of thousands of dollars* for the way she was born.

My first reaction to an adverse verdict would be to *hunt down and read* what logic was used, preparatory to making some of the most vicious fun of anything I've ever made fun of in my life. It would likely be unmistakable that I considered the "justice" penning the majority "opinion," and cohorts, as lower than dog shit. I would make *no attempt on god's green earth* to hide it in any fashion, quite frankly.

We shall see what happens.

It's always a shock to oppressed people when they are finally treated fairly so your anxiety is understandable. Take heart!

I can't wait to see how people generally react if Windsor is told to pay. It would boggle my mind so severely that I would be unable to wrap my head around any "logic" for it.

You know what's funny, though? It's not anxiety, per se, about the verdict; I see one way to rule, and the matter goes no further.

What is going to disturb me profoundly is how people react if the verdict is antigay and there is not an outcry of a ferocity to give the nation severe pause.

I'm not suggesting any specific course of action; I am saying that what bothers me most is the (quasi) certitude that people won't react *enough* to an antigay ruling.

I'm never, never bothered by an outcome *UNLESS* I feel the response to the outcome won't be sufficient enough, or proper; I believe in *always* having a Plan B. If I felt these things were being handled properly, I wouldn't be one-tenth this negative.

You keep using that word I do not think it means what you think it means.

If they don't overturn DOMA, It will be an embarrassment on the world stage for the US. Even Mexico will probably have full equality before us. I have no hope, I fully expect the bigotry and greed to win, it always has, otherwise people like NOM wouldn't have anyone to hate or make money. If you can compare the history; Women's voting rights took another 50yrs after the SC ruled against it and then only by amendment was it recognized. Where's Frank Stanton when you need him?..'Pathetic America'

Well, at least take heart that if we should win in one or both of these cases, you will probably be more elated than those who expect to win. I'm sitting on the fence here. I hope for the best, but am prepared for the worst.

You're right I shouldn't be so pessimistic..I can only hope they do the right thing and that church and state are still separate.

Just feel sorry for it. It has nothing but the all encompassing need for attention form gay people, but nothing else. No logic. No real life. No friends.

Just itself and it's obsessions, game playing, and fantasies.

Don't feed it, just hope that someday it will heal, and start to do more productive things with it's wasted life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Edie.

Justice delayed is Justice denied.

The Federal Government should not be allowed to exempt itself from it's own laws. If you are married in NY just like a heterosexual couple then you should be married under the same Federal regulations they are.

Mexico actually already has full equality, they just have a corrupt government as well, which is really where the US is heading as well.

Just Mexico city, for now..There was just a court ruling in one of the provinces that 'supposedly' is going to supersede all of Mexico, then the whole country will have to recognize gay marriage no matter what the provincial(state) law is. That's what NEEDS to happen here, that and and increase in education funding, judging by some of posters on here. ;-)

The recent court ruling just applies to one state outside of Mexico City. The rest of the provinces will have to have 5 marriage equality cases filed against them (if they deny equal marriage currently) before they will be required to alter their constitution. Demand will equal equality eventually for all provinces in Mexico.

We could go to Mexico City to get married but I'm concerned it would be more hassle for my husbands citizenship application than it's worth. Thus we'll be going to Washington or possibly California next year.

Ah, details, yeah, I don't know all the details of the matter. But now I know more. They still have more equality there than the US has.

It's never occurred to you that life can have more than two sides.

When it comes to "shyte quotients" you always nearly break the meter.

I am deeply suspicious, to say the least.

Most often, when people say this, they don't like *how* someone else is expressing themselves.
