“Just found a lawyer to represent us all pro-bono!” That’s the word from 1 Struggle, 1 Fight, a pro-gay marriage group on the ground in San Francisco in front of the Supreme Court that’s live-Twittering the events. Why the lawyer? Because police are arresting protesters engaged in a little civil disobedience. First up, according to 1S1F: An Episcopal priest.

    there aren’t enough obese lesbians! Are we going to have to start bussing in the large angry ladies? Things don’t get done without angry lesbians…especially obese angry lesbians.

    shut the fuck up you fuckin idiot

    Stopping traffic in San Francisco is pointless, immature and fucking stupid. Almost everyone here voted against prop 8, and that includes the drivers they are inconveniencing.

    Want to send a message? Tie one to a brick and throw it through the windows of the court building right there, because the cunts in that building are the ones who did this, NOT San Francisco drivers.

    @Tim in SF: Yawn.

  • kevin (not that one)

    BTW, it seems on the other post only Tank and Yeson8won are able to get their posts through. Are they the same person?

    I smell a dirty sock.

    @kevin (not that one):

    SMell or taste? In any event, I couldn’t be less interested in the details of your sexual fetishes, you despicable christer apologist.

    Another tactic is to accuse someone else of doing precisely what you are doing, anticipating the accusation…hmmmm

    As the rest of you! STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG DYKES GET SHIT DONE!

    BTW, your polling data was wrong Tank:

    And you, timinsf, and other haters on here are SO very far from the spirit of Harvey Milk that it’s rather pathetic, assuming that you’re even gay.

    I can tell that you actually haven’t done any LGBT activism because those of us who have don’t hold such negative, divisive and self-destructive opinions as you.

    You’re all of questionable mental health and not exactly what is needed on this site.

    If I were admin, I’d do some cleaning.

  • kevin (not that one)

    @Jennifer: I think you got your wish. However, Queerty’s idea of admin is slash and burn, regardless of who’s posting what.

    @Tim in SF: Thank YOU!!!
    That’s what I’m talking about. Tie your message to a brick and throw it through the windows of the fucking sad excuse for a supreme court house. Let’s get shit done and let’s get it done right this time.

    Maybe the following lyrics by one of my favorite Punk bands will help you get there.

    “I Wanna Riot” by Rancid:
    I saw a man get the beat down
    Took his money and his wallet left him dead on the ground
    I saw them gather celebrate the crime
    Teaching us the laughter another lesson of mankind
    I raise my hand, I’ve got another question:
    “If I start a riot, will I get protection?
    ‘Cause I’m the kid whose got a lot of problems
    and if I throw a brick maybe the brick will go and solve them.”

    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot
    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot

    I’m boiling up the city’s on heat
    Red alert tension you know it’s on the street
    Code blue city of the dead
    Sirens in the night with the lights bloody red
    See how we do this (hell yeah) see how we ride
    Throw a brick light the fuse dodge a bullet duck inside
    It’s a statistic hammered on my brain
    Branded with a number another pawn in the game

    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot
    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot

    Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!
    In front of me debauchery (hell yeah)
    Crying in line and dying burning debris
    My Face is burning, burning so quick
    Like a candle at the end of its wick
    Well, I turn the dial, I turn the channel
    I turn into a monster fighting the eternal battle
    I need some help and, there is no doubt
    If I’m gonna go down I’m gonna take somebody out

    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot
    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot
    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot
    Oh…. yeah…. I wanna riot
    Riot!

    Good for them. Emotion is a good thing.

    After reviewing what has happened in the Netherlands I am offering my opinion. In my judgment, it is difficult to imagine that a lengthy, highly visible, and ultimately successful campaign to persuade Dutch citizens that marriage is not connected to parenthood and that marriage and cohabitation are equally valid ‘lifestyle choices’ has not been without serious social consequences….

    There are undoubtedly other factors that have contributed to the decline of the institution of marriage in our country. Further scientific research is needed to establish the relative importance of all these factors. At the same time, we wish to note that enough evidence of marital decline already exists to raise serious concerns about the wisdom of the efforts to deconstruct marriage in its traditional form. But the deeper point is that the meaning of traditional marriage was transformed every bit as much by the decade-long national movement for gay marriage in Holland as by eventual legal success. That’s why the impact of gay marriage on declining Dutch marriage rates and rising out-of-wedlock birthrates begins well before the actual legal changes were instituted. The recent statement by five Dutch scholars takes exactly that position.when you have ‘rising out of wedlock birthrates’ then guess what happens? more crime, more drugs, more gangs…a dysfunctional community, as we have seen in the black community.

    you on the other hand, have no evidence that gay marriage has a positive effect upon society in any manner…its all about the greed of the gays to enforce their views upon others….and at the same time limiting the religious freedom, and freedom of speech, of those who disagree.

    @Hector Levarrio: Since when did it become necessary to convince you with empirical data that my gay marriage would “have a positive effect on society” ?!?!

    You can try to tie gay marriage and teen pregnancy and gangs together all you want. The fact of the matter is, in THIS country we decided a long time ago that equal protection under all laws was a pillar of our society. That seperate isn’t equal. That the government has no right to come into your bedroom and dictate your sex life.

    We don’t want to take away your right to disagree or dislike who we are. We want to take away your right to deny us equality based on your beliefs. Beliefs that you are free to have, but not to impose on anyone.

    Thank you for taking the time to address the LGBT community with your insightful thoughts and feelings.

    From your comments, it would appear that you are suffering from a rather common condition known as octal-rectilitis.

    That’s when your eye muscles become attached to your sphincter muscles and you get a shitty outlook on life.

  • schlukitz

    Oh, and BTW…when did peaceful protests in the streets that are paid for with taxpayers money, become a criminal offense for which one can be arrested?

    Oh…for inconveniencing motorists from driving down the street in front of the courthouse, you say?

    Well then, by that same rationale, should they not have arrested all of the people in NYC that marched from Sheridan Square in the Village to Union Square on 14th Street?

    After all, they were “blocking traffic” too, were they not?

    Not only is equality for all non-existent in the State of California, it also appears to be turning into a police-state as well.
