    Written by Instinct Staff | Monday, 12 September 2011
    The proposed amendment that would ban marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships and other relationship recognition for same-sex couples has passed the North Carolina House of Representatives. Maybe we aren't surprised by this, but we sure are pissed

    Wish it was a surprise. The states still doing this in 2011 are just trying to declare victory and end the game early. But they know which way the momentum has gone and that they will lose in the end.

    This worries me. I'm seriously concerned about the direction this country is going in.

    All you republicans.. listen up!

    Miller referred to comments made by Rep. Mark Hilton, R-Catawba, earlier this year during a closed-door GOP caucus meeting in which the microphones were left on and the sound was accidentally piped into the Legislative Building pressroom. During the caucus, Hilton said that the proposed same-sex marriage ban was needed to help conservative groups “get their ground game working.”

    And you people actually vote for these assholes? You deserve your second class status!

    Of course they'll still vote for them. They might lose their chance at saving a buck in taxes.

    Yup.
    Bringing up all this anti-gay shit in NC is a very intentional strategy by the desperate Repub party to try to keep NC from going to President Obama again next year.

    The Repubs will have an anti gay marriage measure on the ballot for next year's election - just like they did in other swing states in 2004.

    The craven and divisive Repubs are more than happy to spread and encourage anti-gay hatred if they think it will help them gain a few votes.
    They've done it time and time again, and they'll be doing it in NC in the next election cycle.

    Whether it will work in NC - or backfire in their faces - is very much up in the air.
    NC is becoming less and less reliably Repub.
    That's why the Repubs are taking this desperate - and risky - strategy.
    But there's a real risk that it will hurt them more than help.
    The NC electorate has changed - with a lot of new more progressive folks moving into the state.
    Plus, gay marriage has rapidly been gaining support in NC and nation wide.

    It would be sweet if this ugly divisive anti-gay gameplaying blew up in the Repub's faces.

    The old dudes are just jealous that some "real" hot guy might take their sons away, which they're already sexing in the back 40 on the DL.

    I visited North Carolina this summer. Didn't like it one bit. Another reason to not go back.

    Well, having lived in L.A. for 20 years, I can assure you that nobody there gives a rat's ass if you're gay, straight, or somewhere in between. I've lived in AZ for 8 years now, and I have never felt even the slightest bit of anti-gay anything here. It's never been an issue, and I don't suspect it ever will be. No, gay marriage is not legal here, much like most of the country, but that isn't really an issue that is all that important to me personally, so have never even felt slightly 2nd class.

    See.. its evident in your 'me me me, as long as I dont care, who cares!' attitude. What about that gay couple who has two kids and CAN'T get married, having to jump through hoops for parental rights and healthcare? Are they first or second class citizens?

    Heh, and some people accuse of North Carolina of not being Southern anymore.

    I guess some Southern values are hard to die!

    Maybe it's because I'm new to North Carolina, but I am somewhat surprised despite my apprehensions about acceptance in the near south.

    Honestly...it's shitty. George Washington's a-political advise is really missed icon_cry.gif . It sucks that it's more of a political game than a productive movement, but as someone previously stated, I think this move may actually put North Carolina behind the curve. There's a thin line between the size of the republican majority and the democratic popularity here, and it may end up catching up with the state.

    At least I hope it does :/

    To everyone down in NC with me..at least it's still nice outside : )

    And then go here:

    I loved NC when I lived there from '00 - '04 but this just makes me sick.
