Race has nothing to do with sexuality, and the two shall not be intertwined....can't make any statements under your own steam???
Before the Loving v. Virginia ruling race had a great deal to do with sexuality in the State of Virginia. Marriage to another race was a felony.

<quoted text>Hey Nancy,
Hey, BlowFace, I know you are trying to convincing yourself that by charge for knob jobs you aren't a homosexual but when you rack up the kind of numbers you do a week, the truth -like your client's happy endings- should hit you in the face.

Time to look in a mirror.

You might wash up first.

BlowFace, you are a lot closer than I am - next time you have one riding on your mustache, ask- after they let go of your ears, of course.

Of course it is relevant. Prior to Loving, inter-racial marriage was against the law is some states.

The interracial couple was denied their fundamental rights the same as a same-sex couple is denied their fundamental rights today.

This is perfectly relevant. Your agreement is unnecessary as it will soon become the law of the land.

You need to open a window when using enamel paint dear.

Chief Justice Earl Warren:
“ Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State.
