Re: Takei On Recent California Marriage Decision

I don't support gay marraige for a bunch of reasons that this forum is not designed to discuss. This decision is just depressing. And Takei is celebrating it.
I guess all I really have to say on the subject is I wish people would see what is so wrong about all of this.

but hey I am not trying to start a political debate, just expressing myself...

Sadly, a common affliction.
Is that written down somewhere? "Celebrities are not entitled to opinions unless I agree with them." It's invoked frequently, so I figure it must be in a list of regulations somewhere.
I think it's more akin to, "Why are they paying so much attention to that guy's opinion (which I disagree with), when they aren't paying any attention to mine."
Seems that way...

"Don't mind me...just wandering through, dropping a politically charged bomb...nothing to see here..."

Congrats to Takei. I wish the best of luck to him and his blushing...uh, husband.

They're getting married. You know.

Yeah, how dare people bring gay marriage into a thread about Takei's gay marriage?

To be clear, I'm bothered not by her posting her views in here but by her apparent desire to weasel out of any consequences from expressing said views. There's already been a huge fight about this in Misc.; if she really doesn't want to drag it in here as she claims, the simplest way to avoid doing so would be not to say anything.

By the way, any chance of FiveMinute.net updates in the near future? I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms.

(I know. "Soon." )

Why do you assume I am a woman? Augustus was a Roman Emperor. I am actually a guy. And everyone was expressing their views on the subject so I expressed mine not wanting to debate it. This topic has been debated to death and I know I will not convince anyone by posting here. So I was being truthful in what I said, in not wanting to start a debate. I am just sad that this is the world we live in...

Alas, you know me too well. I really hope to get back on the ball in the near future, though.

And judging by the length of time it took to get a reply...

I like to think of it as you being atypically fast.

What happened to Gep Malakai? He was just here a second ago.

And what's that buzzing noise?
