Besides, I bet ELH looks like your suit without even dressing up!

Why do some heterosexual men wear pink?
How does a persons attire or mannerisms affect the topic at hand, that being same sex marriage. Tell me does what you wear to your wedding change the legal standing?

P.S. Having seen pictures of ELH, I might say this, she is way out of your league. She is in fact a very intelligent woman, with a husband and children. She is also very easy on the eyes. All added up, way out of your league.

It has to do with equating gay unions with marriage. You know that, which is why you are avoiding the question and its implication.

As to ELH, me thinketh thou protesteth too much.

Bruno,

You little retard!

In less than a year, possibly as soon as October, marriage equality will return to California. ALL of California.

Have you chosen what state to which you will be moving? May I suggest Indonesia?

As a 50 year old straight married woman...I will give your question a shot. Woman no longer dress to attract a mate! Long gone are the days of "getting all gussied up" for the Church social to attract a husband. We dress for our own pleasure, comfort and needs. Business suits became a necessity when we wanted equality in the work place...we can rock those, we can rock jeans and a t, hoodies and sweats, dresses, skirts...whatever we want. Todays woman is capable of so much more than just breeding, don't ya think? We don't need to dress to attract mates...I think intelligent people have evolved beyond that.

Did you dress as a man or a woman to attract your wife? Did you "get all gussied up"? If you are what you say you are and really have a wife, you need to take some lessons on loving, compassionate acceptance from her. This speaks to your post about religious and cultural sensitivity on a different thread. Where exactly did you leave your sensitivity?

<quoted text>Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003),[1] is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court. In the 6-3 ruling, the Court struck down the sodomy law in Texas and, by extension, invalidated sodomy laws in thirteen other states, making same-sex sexual activity legal in every U.S. state and territory. The court overturned its previous ruling on the same issue in the 1986 case Bowers v. Hardwick, where it upheld a challenged Georgia statute and did not find a constitutional protection of sexual privacy.
Lawrence explicitly overruled Bowers, holding that it had viewed the liberty interest too narrowly. The Court held that intimate consensual sexual conduct was part of the liberty protected by substantive due process under the Fourteenth Amendment. Lawrence invalidated similar laws throughout the United States that criminalized sodomy between consenting adults acting in private, whatever the sex of the participants.[2]
The case attracted much public attention, and a large number of amici curiae ("friends of the court") briefs were filed. Its outcome was celebrated by gay rights advocates, who hoped that further legal advances might result as a consequence.
SCOTUS used the 14th to do that!
Are you finished?

Pure BS masquarading as women's lib.

-Butch lesbians don't dress for comfort. They dress in men's clothes and styles and take on mannerisms like men.

-You not only sterotype all women in a idiotic and deceitful way, you deny the power of evolution to dictate your behaviors.

I left my sensitivity at the door of denial, which is where gays make the perposterous claim that gay couples are 'exactly the same' as marriage AND as you brought up, horrifically transgres cultural and religious sensitivity.

Nice gay twirl for a straight, but silly stupid with no validation of course.

Grin.

It might be a little off topic, but since it came up...

I do kinda miss the times back in the 1970s, when women took better care of their looks and dressed nice. They had some really cool hair styles back then.

They had glamor back then, you know? Real glamor.

Now, its like they just dont care anymore. They go about in hoodies and baggie pants. Sometimes they dont even comb their hair anymore. They just put a rubber band in it, drag on some baggy pants and a t shirt, and go out in public just like they had good sense.

Kinda reminds me of so many refugees from some disaster movie.

As for me, I like a pair of bibbed overalls.

But Im a hick from Tennessee. I do know anything about fashion anyway!

Hope I didnt make anybody mad?:)

Obama to sign up millions of illegals in time to vote: More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants could become eligible for tentative legal status Wednesday when President Obama’s non-deportation policy goes into effect, and after initial fears that the program would backfire, immigrant advocates are urging young immigrants to sign up.

Hey, Chicken Little,

Here's another civics lesson for you:

They won't be able to vote. Only citizens are allowed to vote.

Damn! You're stupid!!!

BTW: Screwing with the voter rolls is something the GOP does.
