    On topic: I think that this woman did a good thing. As Your Star said, she had a good reason for making a scene as her civil rights are being infringed upon by the state.

    Where is your mind at? You must be a transplant from Texas.

    What civil rights are being infringed upon? I'm still waiting for proof of this assertion.

    Fair enough. She was practicing civil disobedience and I think her motives were right. However, she is still under the law and subject to being arrested.

    Careful, if pro-ssm brings in race, then I will be quick to bring in incest. Both are irrelevant to the topic, so to bring up one is to invite them all.

She can civilly disobey so long as she isn't disrupting others access to public areas unless there is some law that I don't know about. I wonder what the police report says.
    It's not okay as it is against the law. But as a form of protest people begin to get your point. Eventually they may even see your cause. They might even change their minds about you if they see your suffering. It's a protest.

    I agree that it's protest even though it's illegal.

    It is related. You said that in NC gays do not have the right to legally marry each other. I said that in the 1960s black people did not have the right to eat at the same restaurants as white people. Explain to me why race is irrelevant when the scenarios are almost exactly the same.
