    Um, no it works exactly that way. If two people, one black, and the other white, were not allowed to jaywalk, that is constitutional, however, if the black guy was and the white guy not, then that would be unconstitutional based on the 14th and due process. If two people, one a woman, and one a man, were allowed to marry one person of the opposite sex that would be constitutional, however, if only a man could marry a man, and a woman, and the woman only allowed to marry a man, then that would have distinguishable characteristics and manifestly unfair, and would violate the 14th Amendment.

    A black person could not marry a white person, just as a white person could not marry a black. No difference, yet the ruling was based on the 14th amenement. Do you even read about what you comment on?

    I wonder if the Justices would accept that argument?

    I'm pretty sure they will, there is already precedent for such a thing. Like Red brought up the arguments for Loving v Virginia apply to SSM cases as well.

    Some do, but it is not a clean sweep. The questions is going to be, at least in part, what level of scrutiny this discimination should be subject to. It is not race based so that comparison is out.

How can "separate but equal" laws apply to gender, yet not for race as both are immutable. In many cases we must accept that equivalent (similar) is as close to equal (same) as we may choose to get.
    Your post is not clearly thought out. On one hand, you bring race into the mix, but the Constitution, as well as the Declaration of Independence, clearly state that we ALL are born with INALIENABLE rights. The Government has no right whatsoever to pick and choose who gets them and who does not.
