I think they just want equal rights, that's all. I am writing a story about some of the first people on earth. They didn't know about sex, sin or a lot of the prudish rules we have today. Men lived with men or women. Women lived with men or women. They had two, three, or more partners at one time. and they propagated.
In the beginning they didn't wear clothes, or even think about it not being "proper," The missionaries weren't in existence then. No one told them they were sinners. That came later, as did the man made rules about many things, including marriage.
Years later, a village mayor was caught looking at another lady by his wife. She forced him to make it a law, thus adultery was born. This was before anybody could read or write.
Sam,

I have to respectfully disagree with you. While I don't agree with the political right's stance on this and other issues, I just have to say I'm a 1950's Leave it to Beaver (no pun intended) type of guy.

My observations are that humans have lost control of their sexual urges and desires. Without this control we are no better than a neighborhood poodle walking down the street getting a wiff and jumping on anything it see's.

Again, I respect your opinion and place myself out of this discussion.

If you vote on an article, law, etc., that is an unconstitutional law, then when a Judge realizes it is unconstitutional, he over rules it. That seems pretty simple.
Say we vote on a rule that states: All books in any city library titled "Happiness Is No Taxes" must be burned immediately. 52% of the unconscious sheep vote on it. It passes, and then a sharp judge over rules it.
Does that make sense. Californians voted on an illegal(unconstitutional) law. It was also so badly written that people thought "yes" meant "no".
Sam, this is a gay judge who determined that the law was unconstitutional. Other judges might not of overturned the will of the people and might have determined that the law was not illegal. This is the reason for higher courts.
This issue will probable end up in the Supreme Court.

We've all heard news clips where some senile millionaire biddy leaves 10 million to her cat, Fluffy Puss, to be taken care of. I'm wondering if some of these weirdos wouldn't try to create some nuptual pact and some judge grant it. Where does it end Sam??

Don't know what you are referring to, but "no reproduction for a year would surely help this over-populated planet. Pro-lifers want to save the fetus so that when this unwanted, mistreated fetus grows up, they can use them for canon fodder for their wars, or execute them when they have murdered someone. Isn't that killing? Isn't that anti-life not pro life?
