Move on, no poignancy to see here

by Jeremy Hooper

Well so much for the Prop 8 decision coming down on the anniversary week of last year's marriage ruling. The CA Supreme Court has announced tomorrow's filings, and the Prop 8 challenge is not on the list.

But both sides are surely happy for the delay, as the pro-equality team has their focus tied up on both New York and New Hampshire, and the anti-equality side is still too focused on "activist pageant judges" to decry actual ones. Perhaps by the time the ruling does come down, we'll have two more marriage states and one less Carrie-obsessed opposition!

Your thoughts

Wasn't re: Marriages ruled on May 15th, not May 14th?

Yes, but the rulings always come down on Thursdays.

Ahhhhh I knew there was a catch. Thanks.

Those bastards! They're going to drag this out for the entire 90 days, aren't they? Sunday is the 5th (Wood) Anniversary of the first Massachusetts same-sex marriages! A lot of jokes come to mind, but none very poignant.

A Message to all gays who believe that they were born gay. Dr. Simon Levay has sent you this profound message of his findings. It is all the more interesting given the fact that Levay himself is gay, and has experience the pain of losing a gay lover to AIDS. Hopefully this will put some of your false notions to bed. Here goes:

LeVay's finding was widely reported in the media.[2] LeVay cautioned against misinterpreting his findings in a 1994 interview: "It’s important to stress what I didn’t find. I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn’t show that gay men are born that way, the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain. The INAH3 is less likely to be the sole gay nucleus of the brain than a part of a chain of nuclei engaged in men and women's sexual behavior."

To Your Helath & Well-Being,

EM
