    Using "same" or "opposite" gender is a nonstarter as it's using a broader term to disguise the specifics that actually matter. In this case, men can marry women but women can't marry women, and vise versa.

    Would a law stating one can marry the opposite religious preference be constitutional? So athiests can marry religious people and religious people can marry atheists, but an atheist can't marry another athiest and a religious person cant marry another religious person?

    After all, NOBODY could marry someone of the same view regarding religion

    To be fair, gay pride is less about thinking sexuality is important and more about responding to societal attempts to make gay people feel ashamed of their sexuality. It's the same with black pride and all other kinds of social "pride". It's just a response to the attempt to shame. I don't think most gay people think their sexuality is any more important than most straight people do.

    Right, just like NOBODY could marry someone of a separate race in 1945 in many states.

    I agree, and this is why "pride" events are more socially acceptable among marginalized minorities vs. the majority.

    Although to be fair, sexuality is a pretty big theme at gay pride events so X isn't completely off base.
    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.

    I'd expect the school to look into it, I wouldnt have a huge care about it though. It's not something so troubling that I'd feel would need me making a cause over it to have things done. Though to be honest when I first red it I thought it said kids at school having sex with each other, as in a general sense not actually on school grounds. I'd have bit more issues in that case, because it's something I'm paying money to have my kid go to due to taxes.So the environment at school does affect my kid.
