    Do you know males are a minority?

    Do you know that white Christian males are a severe minority?
    And? Nobody is taking away their right to marry! Or, any of their rights. They are being protected under the 14th A just as the gays should be.

    Yes.

    They do.

    And there's little we can do about that in the short term.

    But that's not the point.

    While there can never be an absolute mandate that everyone treat eachother equally...

    We can at the very least, make sure the law does.

    No but I have become under fire by progressives for dating woman outside my "race" as if they can even tell my race considering I'm Sicilian yet progressives attempt to get ethnic with me and speak Spanish -as if the relationship I have with a woman is somehow "warm to their soul" when they get both their ideas ass-backwards...

    It's disgusting to me because you don't see two people having a good time, holding hands and kissing at time - you see two different races bonding and I can clearly see that - so can she considering (albeit in on the social experiment) but is still my GF considering we have similar social ideas..

    My findings thus far are that progressives are more than vocal about their politics and feelings when it comes to interrelationships and pay more attention to my relationship with my GF. (who is a dark skinned eastern Indian who could appear to be "black"..

    In short hardly anyone pays attention when we're in public doing a study - we get no hate but tons of comments from progressives who think integration is fantastic and the right way to progress society - some have even applauded the destruction the the white race...

    I can add a lot more info on this subject but I would like to keep some private.

    Or do the progressives draw the line with blacks and latinos?
    In my mind, the term "abnormal" has negative connotations - as in, "this is, if not morally wrong, at least morally questionable".

    Thus, I dislike your use of that word when referencing "interracial marriages" - and why I would say "uncommon". Because, frankly, they [B]are[B] uncommon - but not abnormal.

    In a similar way, I dislike using the term "abnormal" when referencing same-sex marriages.


    That said, I understand that if your personal feelings on the subject are negative, calling it abnormal would be accurate - for you - so long as you clarify the statement with "in my opinion".


    OTOH, my understanding of the words may be faulty....

    The Equal Protection clause doesn't specifically mention most of the things it has ever been used to strike down, including one very related set of laws, interracial marriage bans.

    How do you know they're progressives? And how does someone else's intolerance excuse yours? You hate it when "progressives" (which I think is just your word for "jerk") rag on you for dating outside your race, yet you think it's OK to rag on someone for dating outside of what you consider acceptable.

    exactly, whats hilarious is mr nick makes post after post and it all the adds up to same thing time and time again, all the double talk and spin and lies and the but "i have a black friend" type of stereotypical talk/defense all adds up to the same thing.

    at his foundation he factually supports unfair and illegal discrimination and is totally fine with gays being denied equal rights.

    Post after post and the above fact still remains true

    The key is "consenting adults".
    Without the consent, you enter multiple areas of negative and probably illegal activity. It's defining what that consent is which is difficult.

    For example, say a set of twins, separated at some point before they can remember, adopted by different families on opposite sides of the country, meet, become enamored of each other, and engage in sexual activity.

    They then part ways, neither ever being aware that they are related in any way.


    Was that incest?

    Biologically, yes. Mentally, I'd say no. If that matters...
