I find it profoundly insulting that my personal life is subject to the debate of these dead people.
And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

Best David Boies story I've ever heard:
His firm has been working on this big ass case for a couple years and now they're finally getting ready to go to trial. It's in a district court down south, so the junior partner and associates on the case have spend the past month working 18 hour days and living in a hotel in the district. Nevertheless, the case is looking bleaker and bleaker as the trial date approaches. The day before the trial, they call up north to update Boies on the progress. Despite having little to nothing to do with the case to this point, Boies immediately flies into town, goes to the hotel, and commandeers a huge conference room. He turns to the junior associate on the case and says "Go get me a case of diet coke and two huge bags of pretzel twists. She brings them back to the conference room, he tells them all to go to sleep, and then closes the door behind them. They wake up the next morning, walk down to the conference room, and he's sitting in there next to a stack of documents, finishing the last of the pretzels and soda and looking chipper. He hands the junior associate the stack of documents and tells her "When I reach out my hand, you give me the piece of paper on top of the stack."
They head to the courtroom, where he gets up and argues brilliantly for the next three hours. He does not stop even once to look at the documents, as he's already memorized everything and determined how he was going to use it. He just reaches behind him to take the next thing being handed to him, and then gives it to the witness. They win the case handily.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

I agree with those who see this as presumptuous. I do not think this case can be won in declaring Prop 8 unconstitutional. Though I am pro-GM, I have always purported that going the equality route is not the way and a loser of a position. If the pro-GM movement would focus on family, health, and childrenm they would have already won this thing. Heck, I've posted enough evidence at DP for them to win.
Wrong focus, wrong timing.
