    I'll be brewing my Starbucks coffee at home, and missing the protest (and the show that Mr and Mrs PerfectStorm are putting on- damnit).

    You're kidding, right?

    Right now, the vast majority of gay couples are being denied legal access to federally recognized marital unions. This disallows them access to several benefits that straight couples are allowed to access merely for being a straight couple willing to sign a marriage license. Equal protection under the law includes legally binding contracts.

    Not a coffee fan...so don't really give a ****.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Name one benefit that I have, under federal law, as a straight male that gay men don’t have. I’m not free to marry just any woman I desire or any man I desire. This isn’t a human rights issue it is a social issue decided by state law.

    List of financial benefits legalized SSM will give couples that they don't have now.

    You have the right to have your marriage to a person you are genetically programmed to be attracted to recognized by other states. You have the right to expect the benefits of that marriage to be respected in every state.

    Or because I realize that ramming into a deformed brick wall serves no purpose.
