Pinkiequality by PixelKitties Pinkiequality by PixelKitties
I've seen a metric ton of equality avatars popping up on Facebook, Twitter, etc. And yet, by some terrible oversight, none have featured Pinkie Pie. Well, we can't have that!

Feel free to use as you like!

For anyone who hasn't passed a TV/Radio/Internet Device this week in America, the US Supreme Court heard challenges to California's Proposition 8 banning Same-Sex Marriage in the state AND the Defense of Marriage Act of our Constitution which prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, even if individual states approve them. Many folks are using avatars like this- [link] -in their social media to support repeal of anti-gay legislation.

Obviously being a big ol' Lefty I am on the side of tearing down both of those laws to their foundations. And hopefully, here in the land of the free, we'll stop attempting to enshrine discrimination- in any form- within our most precious founding legal and cultural documents.

UPDATE- I have to say, I've found all the debate in the comments to be very very interesting and entertaining! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and offered their thoughts, whether I agree or not, it was quite a read.

Present: Gay Marriage is wrong

1967: ...I mean if Whites and Negras can marry, it'll ruin the whole institution!

1947: By George, if I let my daughter marry a Jew, where will it end?

1867: Soon our women-folk will think it's okay to marry Yankees!

1692: and I swear in the Lord's name, if my daughter marries a left-handed man, both will be burned at the stake as witches!

2,000,000 BC: Groog moogog tsrong, grunt oont braaaawk!

Seriously, people need to shove it and be happy for them.

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

I'm saying I find it disgusting that people are treating GLBT rights like it's Sodom and Gomorrah: Reloaded, when it's no different than 2,000,000-1967. They did nothing to hurt us, so we shouldn't be bitching, we should be happy for them.

I thought that Federally, Same Sex Marriage is now recognized as marriage for tax purposes, but each state can legally still state what they wish 'marriage' to be. So if Texas says, "Marriage is between Man + Woman. No exceptions" on death, Federal Taxation for estate tax will say, "Texas may have said no, but we'll understand you"

So, it's not as great as you think yet. It's still permitted to be judged on a state by state basis what marriage is permitted to be in that such state.

Canada let that happen for one year, then with argument and a little reason (Section 7 challenge) meaning that Life Liberty and Freedom to move about this great country is not equaled, because each Province would limit what they thought to be 'marriage' and thus the gay couples that thought they were now free, were in fact, not.

We can then hope that this same situation may arise in the future. This is a doorway, we've not passed through it, but I wish you the greatest luck in this, also the FRA (Family Reunification Act) talks a little about gay marriage permitting someone to become a citizen of the United States as well. Hope that'll work too, Canada enjoys that privilege, and hell, even Australia.
