I thought gender was a protected class in CA. Technically gender is not defined by the physical sex of the person.

It could be argued from that point as the male and female gender may be represented even if the male and female genetalia are not. It does discriminate based on the gender of the individuals.

As for the legislating from the bench: I don't think that is what they did here, I'd have to see the full case to see if they did, but going from what I have heard, it seems they struck down a law that they deemed unconstitutional.

Agreed. African Americans used to have no rights, and women used to have mimimal rights. And, at the moment, gays don't have marriage rights everywhere. It's all the same. If this goes far enough, and beats the anti-gay side, we'll have a new chapter in our history, the time when gays finally got the full rights they are are were supposed to have under the law.

I found it funny how my father brought this up. However, for once, I've gotten him to listen to me, and the debate turned in my favor... (thank you for all those great debates you people have debated)


Please feed the trolls. XD

What difference does it make one way or the other? If one defines anything loosely, though, there are a veritable number of unforseen problems or opportunities that can arise, if on nothing else, based on a precedent. Btw, wasn't aware you needed an excuse.

@mimartin- sarcasm?!? Say it ain't so. I picked up on it w/ no problem.
