commented on Queer Opponents of Marriage Equality
I think it can be argued that marriage equality could in time help with other issues like the boy killing himself for being bullied, at least in principle. Frankly, I don't think school bullying will ever go away, if it's not for being gay it'll be for something else. Kids are brutal sometimes.
But the more all groups are given equal rights, treated as people just like everyone else in law, the more national sentiment will sway in the same direction, homosexuality will be considered just another "normal" trait for lack of a better word and won't be attacked by so many people. A step in the right direction is still...well...a step in the right direction. A lot of steps in the right direction can really get you a long way.

I wouldn't be so sure about the latter.

She sounds like Brett Favre. Gotta jump back into the media attention by oh so subtly implying she might jump back into the presidential race. Me. Me! ME!!!!

Of course it's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.

It's a bit of a reach to just say Ron Paul thinks gay people should be allowed to marry without qualification. He's been sort of against federal laws about it, but says he would've voted for DOMA and he co-sponsored the Marriage Protection Act. He wouldn't stop states that support it from allowing it, but more than likely would favor states to ban it and wouldn't require states where it's illegal to recognize marriages performed elsewhere. It's another issue he rarely gives a straight answer on.

commented on Mitt Romney Hates America
@23 That's a good point, though to @22's point it is absurd how "flip-flopping" is so often used as an insult in politics. One of the biggest problems we have right now with Congress is the complete lack of being able to compromise. Rigid adherence to ideologies is far more dangerous than someone willing to bend and/or change his mind.
