The loophole in Prop 8

So, you know how Judge Vaughn Walker struck down Proposition 8 as being unconstitutional? And then people (from here on in to be known as “giant bags of douche") tried to have his judgment thrown out because he’s gay, and gay people can’t make decisions about gay things. Sort of like how men must decide all laws affecting women? Yeah, that confuses me too.

Anyway, what they all failed to grasp is the one major logical flaw in the argument (not counting the giant-ass flaw that he is a judge and therefore has a better grasp of the law than random gaycists): their argument is that Judge Walker can’t rule on Prop 8 because, being a gay man, he has a stake in the case, right? Right. Basically, they want to get a ruling from a straight judge because a straight judge has no stake in the case.

And there we have the major flaw in all arguments against gay marriage: straight people have absolutely no stake in the marriages of gays. Hell, no one has any stake in a marriage other than their own. And if you have no stake in the matter, then shut the hell up because no one cares what you have to say. Gay marriage doesn’t affect you in any way, shape or form. So STFU.
