    These symbols of America shouldn’t be used like this. You’re a sick person, Toles…

    I agree! It’s a sick, sick person who would advocate equal rights for all citizens! What, do they think constitutionally granted equal protection under the law is supposed to apply to people who don’t think or believe as we do??

    The very thought of marrying liberty and justice …

    The cartoonist is irrationally comparing Abstract Personifications with the reality of human lives and emotions. It’s not an argument, it’s not even relevant, no matter what side of the argument you take.

    What he means that liberty and justice are best served by enshrining… well that depends on your point of view.

    Corporations are people says SCOTUS. They “marry” all the time. They also buy and destroy each other. Not very attractive people!

    I’m still waiting for someone to point out which document specifies that marriage is a right.

    There are 14 SCOTUS decisions that declare marriage to be a right.

    The more I think about this one, the more brilliant it gets.

    Good cartoon, Toles! You brought out the trolls making bigoted and irrational comments, and undermining what little appeal conservatism has in the modern age.

    “It’s gay men that are “icky.” Lesbians are ok. Two chicks kissing is hot!”

    That’s highly subjective. I personally find it gross. But then I find it gross when even one woman is involved in anything sexual.

    If you just look around at the world without making any judgments to start with, what you see is a very complicated world of gender. When I was a kid, back in the middle ages, I didn’t know a single person who was an admitted gay. Of course there were just as many gay people, but they didn’t let on. Then gradually it became more acceptable to admit you were gay, and in the 80s and 90s, there was the phenomenon of “coming out of the closet”. A fair number of people who had been in heterosexual marriages got divorced and formed same-sex partnerships. (The current Premier of Ontario is an example.) Clearly many of these people would never have entered into a heterosexual marriage if they had been able to enter into same-sex marriage.

    Then there were people who said, Hey, I’m not quite happy with the whole binary division of genders, anyway. Some were bisexual, some were transgendered, and so on. There’s a philosophy professor where I work, male, who regularly dresses as a woman and uses the women’s bathroom. I was at a party last weekend and there were several transgender people there. I don’t know if they are planning to have sex-change operations or not (somehow I didn’t feel like asking). It’s clear to me that there is a huge variety of feelings about gender, and these were always there, just not expressed.

    Me, I’m heterosexual and pretty ordinary about it, but I have to respect what other people are. It’s actually quite fascinating to see the world of (social) gender change so radically in such a short time. I just hope that everyone can find a way to be happy being what they are. If no one is harmed, what’s the problem?

    “Who is stopping them?”

    Biggots and state/federal laws are stopping them.

    “Isn’t there 10 states that allow anyone to marry anyone else?”

    No state allows a person to marry “anyone else.” There are states that allow gay marriage, but they still require both partners to be consenting adults.

    Why is it that only a Texan would find something wrong with how two people of the same gender could form their own family together and want to have it legally recognized like any other family out there that was created with “traditional” components?
