Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) Up for US Supreme Court Review This Week...

<< < (3/14) > >>

mecch:
Brown vs. Board of Education was 1954.
Rosa Parks civil disobedience Dec 1955
July 1964 - Civil Rights Act

Miss Philicia:
14th amendment until Brown v Board of Education was close to a century.

The 19th amendment for women to vote was 1920 -- well, if you want to figure out a starting point for that movement feel free to. The first known female voter in the (pre-) US was Lydia Taft in 1756, Massachusetts.

You couldn't fuck each other in the ass until ten years ago, so leap frogging to marriage before making workplace discrimination illegal nationally is "fast".

mecch:
Hard to figure out the start point for any civil rights movement, isn't it.
But I don't consider gay civil rights to have been fast.

OneTampa:
My view is that when equal rights are not equally available and applicable the correction can't be fast enough.

Won't that be a kicker if marriage is affirmed for the entire country yet ENDA is still stalled?

It's absurd ENDA hasn't passed yet.
