    I am incredibly on edge about this. Please make the right choice, guys (and it should be obvious which side I'm on here).

    "DOMA has been struck down.
    5-4:DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment."

    Prop. 8 is also down for the count!

    This has been a wonderful few days in America. So much progress!

    @FrozNlite, WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU?

    Trying to explain to all the men he said "Of course I love you, and would love to marry you, but we can't right now."

    Definitely one of the peak points in my lifetime so far.

    Truly one big leap for America.

    I have not read today's daily paper, so I'm kinda confused here. Anyone mind telling me what's DOMA and Prop. 8?
    Edit: Is DOMA basically no gay/lesbian marriage?

    DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) basically defines marriage as being between a man and a woman only and denies same-sex couples the same rights as a heterosexual married couple. Prop. 8 bans same-sex marriage in California.

    That's been my take on it, anyway.

  14. Default Re: Supreme Court ruling of DOMA and Prop. 8 to be decided on 6/26 at 10 AM


    So basically, DOMA discourages same sex marriages in the US while Prop 8 bans it completely in California?
    Yikes.

    Is it really a victory for an entire country when equality has to be imposed on it by its highest court.

  16. Default Re: Supreme Court ruling of DOMA and Prop. 8 to be decided on 6/26 at 10 AM


    Oh, and pardon me, but I just had to post this.

    Expecting DOMA and Prop. 8 to be down pretty soon.

    Although you can get married in some states, while others have outright banned it (california), the federal government (until today) has not recognized homosexual marriage. Because the IRS/Fed's did not acknowledge it, the benefits of being married on a tax return do not qualify. In this specific case they tried to get a refund on an Estate, but they could not get a "joint(married)" tax rate which affected how much they would receive back in a negative way.

    It's like going to an amusment park and being allowed to be in a group even though you aren't family, but not being able to get the group discount on the local shops because you aren't acknowledged as a group unless you ARE family.

    Pessimistic as always Ricky . You have to remember, it only takes one man to challenge it, until the highest authority tells him "No you're wrong". Although I digress, 5:4, a victory, is a rather dissapointing one :|

    By the way, search "Gay" on Google. (Safe results on, and not images/videos, reccomended LOL)

    That's awesome news, well done America.

    Got a bit emotional reading these reactions and those are just celebrities, I can't imagine the response from the LGBT community. i'd probably be crying my eyes out reading their reactions.

    This was pretty great, but hopefully most people won't forget that pomegranate the NSA has been doing, and what's going on with Edward Snowden. Cause that's pretty important too lately, and I think with this, people might actually forget about it, since they're so excited right now.
