It's a definitive propriety issue.
For example, is it an equal rights issue that cat-owners aren't allowed to enter their cats in a dog show?
Of course not, because definitive propriety is always the foundational test to resolve an issue, and a cat is simply not a dog, and thus cat-owners have no right to enter their cats in a dog show.
Definititive propriety is tested first, and only if its conditions are satisfied do rights and equality come into play as the next questions.
The same is true with respect to topical relevance.
A marriage has always been, for over 12,000 years, from just before the agricultural revolution, predating religion, predating modern history, up to the present, between a man and a woman as husband and wife, the definition of marriage, isolated pocketed violations being meaningless with respect to the definition, just like people calling their cats dogs is meaningless, obviously.
So, is it an equal rights issue that SS couples aren't allowed to enter into a marriage, a marriage having always been between a man and a woman as husband and wife, the definition of marriage?
Of course not, because definitive propriety of what marriage is -- between a man and a woman as husband and wife -- excludes SS couples right off the bat.
Thus the matter, logically, rationally, never moves to the next question of equal rights, as the matter was solved by the foundational appeal to definitive propriety.
50 years ago, gay activists realized this reality, and so they began the oxymornic brainwashing campaign of simply using the phrase "gay marriage"/"same-sex marriage" for three generations, until it as a phrase is now so engrained in the minds of many that, instead of thinking rationally and reasoning for themselves, people have simply been psychologically seduced to accept these terms as if they were true, when, obviously, they are not, and the seduction is to the ideological degree, with an emotional underpinning and effect, and a pre-conceived ideological seed has thus been planted in the minds of the seduced.
When we think reasonably, rationally, according to the general guidelines for problem resolution in such matters, this matter is solved at the first and foundational test of definitive propriety, and thus there's no need to even consider the secondary tests of rights and equality.
But those brainwashed by the generations of hearing and reading the aforementioned oxymoronic phrases, their rational reasoning ability has been compromised.

When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
