Prejudice, pejorative terminology, stigmatization and dehumanization, remain your only tools. Pejorative terminology fails to refute the information presented.

"And where, as here, "there is no reason to believe that the disadvantaged class is different, in relevant respects" from a similarly situated class, this court may conclude that it is only irrational prejudice that motivates the challenged classification. As irrational prejudice plainly never constitutes a legitimate government interest, this court must hold that Section 3 of DOMA as applied to Plaintiffs violates the equal protection principles embodied in the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution."

You are a bit confused. The only folks doing all of those things are the anti-gay crowd.

Case in point - yourself.

And yet the documentation I have posted is supported by every mainstream scientific organization in the country, while you continue to rely on pejoratives and unsupportable, stigmatizing, dehumanizing attacks. Your own posts demonstrate these are the tools you rely on, as you have no valid argument on the merits.

You have no rational governmental interest sufficient to justify refusing to treat others as you would yourself under the law.

"In the wake of DOMA, it is only sexual orientation that differentiates a married couple entitled to federal marriage-based benefits from one not so entitled. And this court can conceive of no way in which such a difference might be relevant to the provision of the benefits at issue. By premising eligibility for these benefits on marital status in the first instance, the federal government signals to this court that the relevant distinction to be drawn is between married individuals and unmarried individuals. To further divide the class of married individuals into those with spouses of the same sex and those with spouses of the opposite sex is to create a distinction without meaning. And where, as here, "there is no reason to believe that the disadvantaged class is different, in relevant respects" from a similarly situated class, this court may conclude that it is only irrational prejudice that motivates the challenged classification. As irrational prejudice plainly never constitutes a legitimate government interest, this court must hold that Section 3 of DOMA as applied to Plaintiffs violates the equal protection principles embodied in the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution."

"The idea that homosexuality is a mental disorder or that the emergence of same-sex attraction and orientation among some adolescents is in any way abnormal or mentally unhealthy has no support among any mainstream health and mental health professional organizations.

Despite the general consensus of major medical, health, and mental health professions that both heterosexuality and homosexuality are normal expressions of human sexuality, efforts to change sexual orientation through therapy have been adopted by some political and religious organizations and aggressively promoted to the public. However, such efforts have serious potential to harm young people because they present the view that the sexual orientation of lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth is a mental illness or disorder, and they often frame the inability to change one’s sexual orientation as a personal and moral failure.

Because of the aggressive promotion of efforts to change sexual orientation through therapy, a number of medical, health, and mental health professional organizations have issued public statements about the dangers of this approach. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American School Counselor Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, and the National Association of Social Workers, together representing more than 480,000 mental health professionals, have all taken the position that homosexuality is not a mental disorder and thus is not something that needs to or can be “cured.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics advises youth that counseling may be helpful for you if you feel confused about your sexual identity. Avoid any treatments that claim to be able to change a person’s sexual orientation, or treatment ideas that see homosexuality as a sickness."

Evidence exists both through clinical studies as well as through the personal testimony of millions of gay, bisexual, and straight people around the world who will testify they have no choice over to whom they are emotionally, romantically, and physically attracted. Bisexual people sometimes confuse the issue as it takes some of them a long time to realize that while they experience attractions to some members of both sexes, they have no choice over being attracted. Like gay and straight people, they only have a choice of whether to act on their attractions.

Yet, even for those who reject the evidence and insist being gay is a choice, it is important to remember our constitution protects choice of belief. Your beliefs cannot be used to deny your fundamental rights.

It might also help to remember that because marriage is a fundamental right, it can't be taken away by the government, even in cases of spouse abuse, child abuse, or other violent crimes including murder. Even those convicted of such crimes may still get married. This means gay law enforcement and court officers are denied the same protections of the law guaranteed to the criminals they risk their lives protecting us from. It should be clear, the gender restriction is needlessly harmful as well as irrational.

My Neil has called the proposed same sex marriage bill as an attempt at marriage "equity", not marriage "equality" - anyone know why he said this? I frankly am dumbfounded by his careful choice of words.
