15 years ago today same sex marriage became legal in the United States, although limited to one state at that time, the process where it became legal in 50 states was launched, and the outcome became inevitable.

Today I read where it was legalized in Taiwan, this has been an incredible change in public opinion, around the world.

Look at the opinion on abortion, it moves a little one way, then it moves a little the other way, but it's pretty much where it was 30 years ago.
Compare that to Same Sex marriage, which has gone through the advanced nations, and the old barriers are limited to Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, China and of course Africa.

I'm glad we're at where we should've always been as a society.

I will never forget in 2012, in back to back days the Supreme Court ruled same sex marriage and the ACA was legal at a federal level. The next day, Ted Cruz went on Rush Limbaugh and said, "The last 24 hours have been some of the darkest in our nation's history."

You know when it comes to the revolutionary war, the civil war, world war I, world war II, the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, the atomic bomb in Nagasaki the vietnam war, the civil rights era, slavery, the dread scott decision, the stock market crash of 1929, the trail of tears, 9/11, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the assassination of JFK, the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Japanese internment camps, and bay of pigs, allowing gay people to get married is right up there in it's level of darkness.

Hate is a strong word, but I fucking hate Ted Cruz.

...and wouldn't you know it. What the crazy fundamentalists predicted is coming true. We have men pretending to be women taking over womens sports. The terms female penis and male vagina have wormed their way into our vernacular. We have parents who parade their cross dressing children who dance provocatively at night clubs celebrated and brought on tv. It's absolute insanity and the insane Christians predicted it.

My god!!! Where does it end?

No, those things actually haven't happened. What the 'Christians' predicted has not come to pass.

You sure feel compelled to lie a lot.

Unresolved childhood issues, perhaps?

I heard one crazy fundamentalist predict that four years after the ruling it would be 2019...
And what year is it now??? 2019!!!

The stupid thing about your response (well, one of the stupid things) is that those claimed "predictions" have nothing to do with gay marriage.
Transgender is not the same thing as gay. The two are separate issues.
The issue of transgender in sports existed LONG BEFORE gay marriage, so if you seriously listened to any Christian who made such a prediction in correlation with gay marriage, then you need to educate yourself.

And as far as the sexualization of youth, your prejudice is showing when you fixate on things in a "gay" light. The TV Show "Toddlers & Tiaras" first came out in 2009, 6 years before the gay marriage ruling. In 2005 there was a study done on now adult childhood beauty pageant contestants and how they were impacted by their experience.
Childhood beauty pageant contestants: associations with adult disordered eating and mental health. - PubMed - NCBI

But you want to give credit to "Christians" who supposedly talked about obvious impacts of trends that existed in society well before gay marriage?
:rolleyes:


But I get this tendency from faux "Christians" and people like you who blindly lump things together you don't like and pretend they are related. It involves lazy thinking that revolves around an attempt to blindly paint others in a negative light.


The terms female penis and male vagina have wormed their way into our vernacular.
I saw this and had to laugh.
I have never used such phrases. I am a gay man who lives in the SF bay area.
I have to wonder what sort of conversations you have where those terms have supposedly "wormed their way" into your venacular... :rolleyes:

Or maybe you're just referring to your porn search history, eh?

.
these two decisions came from a conservative court

let that sink in

that is how wild right Cruz and the GOP has gotten

The right is totally out of control, we need to stand up to their insanity. You have to wonder how so many people got left behind.

a couple things
1 I know of no sport being taken over by transgenders. I know of two incidents where a poor decision was made to allows men to compete as women.
2 I have never heard these terms previous to this post "female penis and male vagina" You say this has something to do with a worm? :lol:
3 "We have parents who parade their cross dressing children who dance provocatively at night clubs celebrated and brought on tv." I do not watch daytime TV. Jerry Springier I presume?
