    I'm replying to the statement "Gender discrimination is equally as unconstitutional as Racial discrimination in this country." -- which is not true.

    If you want to claim that gender-based marriage discrimination isn't "right" - there are better arguments than comparisons to black-white marriage.

    But it IS true. Just because our government practices it, doesn't make it any less unconstitutional. It was unconstitutional when we practiced racial discrimination, and it's unconstitutional when we practice gender discrimination.

    Not allowing homosexual marriage is not gender discrimination. Should we remove all male/female bathrooms? Is that gender discrimination?

    When it involves allowing gay marriages, ending the nationwide prohibition of drugs, and allowing State's to determine which immigrants can be viewed as legal residents of said state, that's when!


    (essentially State's rights are "liberal" whenever it involves a topic that I regularly get called a "leftist" on.)

    Does the government prohibit unisex bathrooms?

    You're making a circular argument. It's unconstitutional because it's unconstitutional.

    It *is* gender discrimination. The question is whether or not the discrimination is legal. The law discriminates in many ways which are perfectly acceptable and reasonable.
