LOL at the Conservatives getting upset about Equality! Sorry about your lives.

Adam and his band played at a Slaughter House last night hence his glitter on this barn tweet. I love me some Brit and we all know you’re a HUGE Brit stan Jared but it’s amusing how you never use candids of her but do of everyone else. Congrats California, it is only the right thing to do. On to the next one.

Wish I could remind all of these celebs that this will be appealed- likely all the way to the Supreme Court.

The whole gay marriage issue aside, I have a MAJOR issue with 1 judge negating a direct referendum of the people. Millions of Californians voice their preference and 1 judge disaffirms it? Now that seems pretty unconstitutional…

@ck_always: I couldn’t have said it better myself! I’m more worried about the my voice as a citizen. Or more accurately here, the voice of the majority of Californians.

The Constitution affords us the right to vote and create our laws through these processes, but it sure doesn’t say that marriage of any kind is a right. That would fall into the category of “powers not delegated by the Constitution” which are “reserved to the States” aaaaand its people!! I guess I just get tired of people saying that it is their Constitutional right to get married to whoever they want… its not, its up to the states.

@Millie: LOLOLOLOLOL. So glad I don’t live in the States what with backwardians like you.

Just to be clear, I am not “against” gay rights, just “for” state-rights. Im OK with these reforms if they are done through the proper channels and as the citizens of each state deem necessary and appropriate. The two can go hand in hand.

@Adam: Just wondering, are you religious? Because if you are, you’re not representing your religion very well — people like you are one of the reasons so many can’t take religious people seriously. Jesus never spewed Hate, never spewed racism, never discriminated or said anything like you constantly type on this site. His message was of Love. How can someone who is apparently so religious really think that his all loving God would want others to not have the same rights as him? You genuinely believe you’re going to Heaven by acting this way? You’re either a really bad troll, a confused ‘religious’ fundementalist, or a closeted gay man covering up your homophobic feelings with the excuse of Faith.

RT @darrenhayes What kind of person votes AGAINST two people getting MARRIED? How miserable must your life be to deny happiness to others?

since when what the majority of the citizens in one state decides if a law is uncontituional or not this is the job of the court in all countries except if we are talkin about democracy ancient athens style every action that was taken to stop gay marriages from bein ban was legal anyways congratulations california i hope more states n countries will follow soon

RT: @Alyssa_Milano #NOH8

RT @DeepakChopra Love is the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe and transcends all boundaries.

RT @KimKardashian Prop 8 was struck down! This news is amazing!!!! Its about time! Congrats to everyone!

RT @ROSEMCGOWAN Yay! No more Prop H8! I wanna be a flower girl in a wedding asap! #LGBT #EQUALITY

@miss infamous: yeah probably 1/2 of the time its her people but P-Diddy does the same thing

I’m all for equal rights for gays. But I’m also for equal rights for EVERYONE. Women still have a loooong way to go until we have equality. Women get paid .70 per every dollar men make for doing the exact same job. Women are all whorez and ***** while men are pimps and players. The majority of actresses are judged mainly by the way they look not their talent. Women in the middle east are beheaded or stoned for any misbehavior. Women in the Congo and all over Africa are raped as a form of warfare and intimidation to gain control of land and mines. Those mines have minerals or chemicals that we in the West use for our cell phones and laptops. In the middle east 50 year old men take 8 year old child brides, and then build a harem with several more wives. Women have a long way to go before the are equal and just like I wanted the death of Prop 8 I want the death of all inequality.

@Carole: Yes, they were talking about everywhere, but at least we are moving forward. It is so sad that a man and woman can know each other for 5 minutes and if they choose to, they can get married, but a couple that have been together for years are not allowed [EVERYWHERE]. Hopefully, we will continue to move in the right direction, which is equality for all [EVERYWHERE]!

re post 76

you are the one who does not get it. so let me try again. i didn’t realize you were so slow. the united states constitution guarantees the freedom of speech, religion and association. the framers of the constitution did not say “everyone except gays/lesbians” now did it?

one of the fundamental rights and privileges, that most people enjoy, in the united states is to love whomever one chooses and to marry whomever one chooses. you notice, i said most people. however, prop 8 would deny american citizens who happen to be gay/lesbian the same right and privilege that you have; that is to marry whomever you want and have that marriage legally recognized by law. that is not only un-american it is not constitutional.

in other words, you and others like yourself want to have “separate but equal” status for gays/lesbians. you know how well that worked out for african americans, don’t you. as for me being angry, you bet i am. straight and i am, my boyfriend and i will not stand by quietly and allow you and your friends to deny gays/lesbians there rights as american citizens. neither will others. this will become the next civil rights issue. that upsets you? so what.

as for anger, think about this. the gay/lesbian community has a great deal of money to spend. and whether you like it or not both parties court them come election time. now there’s a republican convention taking place this weekend and, trust me, behind closed doors these republicans who are seeking office are going to hear a lot of angry members of the gay community.

@to ck_always: Yet again ..you’re missing my point and you still categorized me with the wrong section, just for having an opinion different than your own. Keep at it, you’ll understand one day.

RT @AFineFrenzy #PROP8UNCONSTITUTIONAL Wonderful news!!! Congratulations to all the happy couples who can finally get married in California!

@Golden Values: Exactly. Just like whites can marry blacks and POC can marry Asians and so on and so on and on. I’m glad you understand this basic human concept. Congrats Cali.
