I always got the feelings since this all began that the pro SSM side of the debate never really bothered to understand their opponents, and I see that hasn't changed. Not like I care, but it's a bit stupid to take the higher ground when you're ignorant.
    You can apologize for the name calling in the last sentence. I see the reaction to this the same as civil rights when interracial marriage was made legal. Actually the percentage of people upset by that decision is higher than the percentage upset by this decision. This is not the first time people have had laws go against what they think or believe. Why are you saying the SSM side should understand the other side. We all grow up with the people who were against SSM. I know what they are thinking very well thanks.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    True we agree on this.

    Is it as simple as now, when you say you're married, you might be inclined to specify to a female?
    I doubt we have seen the last of the argument about who is allowed to marry who. At this point I don't really care. The seal is broken and all types will pour in after lengthy battles. So be it.

    I will be defining my marriage as traditional.

    I had all of those things without benefit of a marriage license I went to a lawyer and she drew up the papers. Those issues you mention are important and not fun to deal with if you don't have a good attorney. Taking care of those issues without a marriage license is a hassle I sympathize with those who have that problem or had that problem as the case may be.

    My answer which you responded to was pointed at this question and I was in no way taking those issues you stated lightly. Thanks

    I don't think you really do. There is of course bigots that oppose it, but it's a mistake to conclude that all of them are bigoted. I also never apologize.

    That label leads to idiots asking you about dumb things like marrying slaves.

    Never apologizing would make you ignorant and this is the end of the discussion.

    Did the SSM ruling by SCOTUS somehow change your marriage?
    Yes, my wife decided that it was time again (Saturday night), to prove to me that she was a woman.

    I am a true lesbian and proud of it.

    It would make me not sorry. I don't say things that I regret.
