  • Things will continue as they are now. Rallies, protest for discrimination.

  • Things will continue to escalate demanding equality for all...and it will eventually happen anyway, it will be avoiding the inevitable a little longer.....

  • The conflict will go on endlessly, probably no matter what happens.

  • People would continue to look at me and my partner like we have no right to be together or are wrong and we will not have the same rights as married couples, feel inadequate, unimportant, dehumanized and disconnected from the rest of society. Same as thousands of others who constantly have to take peoples crap and defend our relationship to people, bow our heads and tolerate ugly stares and snide comments and basically be treated as second class citizens.
    Then we'd go home at night, hug each other and continue on with our lives because even if some politician says what we are and what we do is wrong, it will never stop us from loving or being loved. Telling someone that they can't marry their partner won't stop them from being together it just makes the rule makers feel a little safer in their delusional world just because they can't understand that love is genderless, colorless and essentially blind.

  • Gay people will continue to be discriminated against. They will continue to be denied the basic human right of being in the hospital room if their partner is dying. They will be denied the ability to make funeral arrangements. They will be denied adoption of any children they may want.
    They will continue to be looked "down" upon by those that feel gays should be kept in the closet. As long as they remain different than the rest in terms of marriage, it will be enough justification for others to look down on them.

  • the people that treat you the way they do will not change their attitude because a law is passed or upheld.

    But the law will be the same for everyone that gets married not just a selected few, and that will have no choice to be upheld, what others think or what not is irrelevant...everyone will be enjoying the over 1,000 rights marriage comes with....
