So you are saying that you will not take four quarters instead of a dollar bill?
Sorry, but calling our marriages something else is making it sounds as if we are not worthy of the title of marriage......it is still separate and not equal......and no matter what you believe.......we aren't going to accept what you feel is okay!!!

I'm taking 4 quarters or a dollar bill with regards to my state rights, benefits and privileges.......I'm also going to take the 4 quarter and the dollar bill at the federal level as well:-)

So then you are one of those that believe that men and women should use the same restroom, because separate is not equal?

I find it interesting how offended people from your side are by that ...
is there a significant difference between men and women?
(Be careful, if there is, then there is a significant diference between two women and a woman and a man...)
And your name reveals your sex?
oh, right, it doesn't...
consistency?
You can stick a feather in your cap and call it macaroni Yankee doodle dandy, for all I care.

I get so weary of some of you out there who log in under many many names and think it is fooling us or something. It is not. I get weary of non registered little dweebs who come on and shout whatever they want, thinking they are going to be "found out" or something. Guess what? You aren't that important or worrisome. Just annoying.

You all claim to be big macho men, but then many have admitted that they are hiding to not be traced. Good lord, a big ol' sissy like ME is brave enough to register, but big macho men are weak scared little cowards. Interesting.

In Europe most of the restrooms are shared, or some have mere open passageways between the men and women's rooms. No one cares, or is upset about it.

Also, most of Europe has far less sex crimes than this uptight country.

Think of the complications a gl0riewh0le could cause in a unisex restroom.
A gay guy could plunge his member through the GH, not knowing that on the other side is a desperate straight woman. When it is all over, he might walk away thinking that he just had the best sex of his life, when in actuality, he unknowingly just had his first straight sex.

How is a truck drivers license relevant? What 'different' needs do I have? I have the same 'needs' as ANY other person. The 'need' to marry the person of MY choice, just happens to of a gender that YOU don't agree with. I have the 'need' to be able have hospital visitation rights, the 'need' to leave my personal belongings, money, social security benefits, ect..to my partner in the case of my death..LIKE ANYONE ELSE! How about this?..If the word 'marriage' is so important to you. We ALL (everybody - straight and gay) have civil unions in the eyes of the government with the same rights. If you want a marriage on top of that, go to a church. If I want a marriage too, I can go to a church that will perform the ceremony. Deal?...Thought so, You still want to feel superior and keep it separate and NOT Equal.

when you are driving commercial frieght, you have a different license.

when you can procreate as a marital union, you have a separate license...
no equal protection issue at all..

its not to feel superior, that you FEEL inferior is your problem...

it simply denotes a rational distinction, marriages provide both a mom and dad and could potentially conceive, civil unions cannot.

Total cop out..and when there is no other excuse or rational, it's typical to bring up 'the children'. Not all straight couples get married to have children, as a matter of fact I think it is a secondary issue. BTW I don't feel inferior and I am correct in my assumption, your response is proof enough.

yah, why give a crud about the children...

Here's the NY high court showing its "bigotry":
"First, the Legislature could rationally
decide that, for the welfare of children, it
is more important to promote stability, and
to avoid instability, in opposite-sex than in
same-sex relationships. Heterosexual intercourse has a natural tendency to lead to
the birth of children; homosexual intercourse does not. Despite the advances of
science, it remains true that the vast majority of children are born as a result of a
sexual relationship between a man and a
woman, and the Legislature could find that
this will continue to be true. The Legislature could also find that such relationships
are all too often casual or temporary. It
could find that an important function of
marriage is to create more stability and
permanence in the relationships that cause
children to be born. It thus could choose
to offer an inducement—in the form of
marriage and its attendant benefits—to
opposite-sex couples who make a solemn,
long-term commitment to each other.
The Legislature could find that this rationale for marriage does not apply with
comparable force to same-sex couples.
These couples can become parents by
adoption, or by artificial insemination or
other technological marvels, but they do
not become parents as a result of accident
or impulse. The Legislature could find
that unstable relationships between people
of the opposite sex present a greater danger that children will be born into or grow
up in unstable homes than is the case with
same-sex couples, and thus that promoting
stability in opposite-sex relationships will
help children more. This is one reason
why the Legislature could rationally offer
the benefits of marriage to opposite-sex
couples only.
There is a second reason: The Legislature could rationally believe that it is better, other things being equal, for children
to grow up with both a mother and a
father. Intuition and experience suggest
that a child benefits from having before his
or her eyes, every day, living models of
what both a man and a woman are like. It
is obvious that there are exceptions to this
general rule—some children who never
know their fathers, or their S360mothers, do
far better than some who grow up with
parents of both sexes—but the Legislature
could find that the general rule will usually
hold."

You weren't so concerned about 'the children' in your earlier posts..Like I said, When there's no rational to deny others rights, last resort use the excuse of child bearing..even if it ignores the fact of illegitimacy.
