SCOTUS, Proposition 8, and DOMA

This post should be treated as an historical artifact. It probably contain broken external links and it may no longer reflect my views or opinions.

I really tried to avoid saying anything about this today. And (to their credit) my friends tend to agree with me, at least in regards to what I’m about to say so I didn’t think I needed to say it. So, please forgive me while I grand­stand for a moment but I just want to be clear:

Discrim­i­nation of civil rights by any name and/or by any logic is wrong.

Period. Full stop. If a right becomes discrim­i­natory, then it’s no longer a right but a priv­ilege. And this is a point I will argue eloquently, loudly, passion­ately, and if need be violently with anyone, any time, anywhere. And even if I don’t change your mind with rhetoric, volume, passion, or my hands, history will play out in my favor on this one.
