    You can compare SSM to Jim Crow when homosexuals are forced into separate schools, separate establishments, sit in the back of the bus, and all the other things minorities suffered through. It's such a disgrace to drag the civil rights movement down by comparing it to people being unhappy that some don't want to change the definition of marriage to include same sex couples.

    It's as absurd as comparing SSM to polygamy, bestiality, pedophilia, incest, and the many other things that some illogical people will argue when discussing SSM. It's a shame so many in the pro-SSM crowd refuse to see this and instead want to compare their opposition to the racists during Jim Crow and insult everyone as if their beliefs are rooted in hatred while flinging around the "bigot, homophobe, hater" mantra. Really, the extremists are two sides of the same coin. It's a shame so few are willing to call out that behavior and will even endorse it.
    Agreed with all this, though the rational that makes SSM acceptable also makes polygamy acceptable.

    How do you think you would be received at an NAACP meeting equating marriage equality with the civil rights movement?

    Considering the NAACP supports marriage equality and itself has compared the two movements favorably, I would say you should read up a little more before saying something stupid.

    The NAACP's support for gay marriage in no way equates the plight of Blacks during the civil rights era and the plight of homosexuals in gaining marriage rights. What people are attempting to do with this is to say that what the gay community is fighting for today akin to what Black people were fighting for in the 60s. The right to marry vs. equal protection under the law. Hmm... one has to do with oppression and the other has to do with getting some tax breaks.

    Give me a freaking break. The two aren't even remotely on the same level.

    A special right is one where no right previously existed, and where no real need for the existence of said right was societal necessary. An example of this would be disability accommodations. They NOW have laws in place that mandate public and private institutions, and open to all individuals places to make room, and accessibility the law. However, Midgets don't have the same accessibility provisions because they are not deemed disabled. Homosexuals never had a right to marry, nor has any language ever included this possibility prior to the late 80's up until now. The very idea of such a thing wasn't even conceivable to society. As a result of the past 40 years, and present, we now as a society are contemplating the unthinkable, and for some, the absurd~!


    Tim-
    You have a ridiculous interpretation of the phrase "special right." But ok, let's go with that one. Why use the phrase at all? Is this an argument against same-sex marriage? They didn't have the right before, so they shouldn't be granted the right? Couldn't I have said the same about women voting, interracial marriage, or drinking alcohol before the repeal of prohibition?
