No one's marriage was actually affected in any way by the change, only records going forward. How much would your marraige change if the label on a document was called something different?
    How does it change for gays then..using your logic change it for the 94% because it doesnt make a difference...but change it for the 6 % because it does make a difference....lol...yeah ok...some will defend everything gay dishonestly no matter what...im not accusing you of that redress...but it is a fact

    I didnt see that either...if thats in there then I dont have so much of a problem with it, but to just rip it to shreds and change it to fit what a few want ...im totally against that.

    I'm okay with it if the options for groom/bride are going to remain. I think we should try to make everyone happy.

    It makes no change for "the 94 %".

At hospitals, in waiting rooms for surgeries, are their going to be state mandated separate same sex and opposite sex rooms? Separate Coke machines? Two different TV's, one tuned to ESPN and one to Bravo?

    What ACTUAL segregation is going to take place?

    The Brown v. Board of Education argument is nonsense.
    It's not about the actual segregation, it's about the social stigmatization and its effects on the mental, financial and emotional wellbeing of homosexuals and, more importantly, that stigmatization being reinforced and even implemented by government policy.

    It's the idea that there needs to be segregation that is nonsense. There is literally no valid reason.

    no thanks thats beyond dumb and to the honesty eye discrimination and insulting.
