The Gay Thread

It's a Rams thing, clearly.

This seems like as good a time as any to admit that when I see this thread title, I think of the GAY SHOWS bit from The Soup.



GAY THREADS! *explosion*

Idaho now joins Arkansas this past week. Expected both of those to be towards the end.

Of course it was the judges help as opposed to the people, but still did it before some states where the polls say the people favor it, so I wonder what those judges are waiting for. Some might just wait to put it on the ballot this fall? Like Oregon, where it most likely will pass, might as well wait as letting the people vote in favor of it is much sweeter.

Soon just two state gay marriage bans will be unchallenged in court - The Washington Post

Thanks to the EUrovision there's been talk in Austria for more gay rights. They want to change the law so that lesbian couples can get IVF treatment, and that gay couples can adopt children. Was in the paper this morning, pretty neat.

I assume you are kidding

considering the other 48 states, many are more conservative/ religious than those 2.

I expect there are many gay/ lesbian couples even in those small population states that can make good court challenges. I think they should. I believe defenders of traditional marriage are not able to make any credible arguments for blatant discrimination against other decent, law-abiding tax paying citizens.

That's what the paper said. I'd link you but it is in Dutch so probably not very useful.

Same-sex couples can wed in Oregon, federal judge rules

Oregon didn't want to wait until November. Though it would've been nice for another popular vote victory, the sooner the better.

The Gay Thread

This sort of patchwork of legal decisions across the country (where it's "constitutional" to have SSM banned in some areas and "unconstitutional" in others) is the sort of thing that's bound to cause the Supreme Court to get involved, right?

My thought was that this was the SCOTUS ruling by design -- empower the states to make the changes themselves one by one so it doesn't feel like a fiat from above. Public opinion is changing rapidly, so a mild incrementalist approach like this might be best.

That's a George W. Bush appointed judge from central Pennsylvania. It doesn't get much more conservative than this dude. I'm fucking floored and giddy.
