What I mean is that sexuality is not as accurately measurable as, say, serum cholesterol, but I'm not saying the scale isn't valuable if properly used.

So Kinsey's point being, gay vs straight is a nonelective, physiologic fact-of-life for some. For others it is less predetermined by physiology, and more a matter of psychology. The scale is expressive of that. I'm unaware of a substantially different mainstream gay-straight sexuality theory at this point. There maybe something out there that I'm not up on though.

Go for it, Toddy.

You people from another galaxy were so sure that you were going to win the last time and look what happened.

Surprised the shite out of you buggers, didn't it.

And don't worry about the money the people who are opposed to same sex marriage will have to spend.

We'll probably raise 10 times the amount that your side will raise even without the Mormon's money.

Don't forget, one of the reasons your side decided not to put a repeal of Prop 8 on the last ballot was because your side spent so much money fighting Prop 8 that your supporters didn't have enough money to mount another campaign to repeal Prop 8.



The reason Prop 8 has not been put on the ballot is because of the case working its way through the courts. And also because polling showed another referendum would be very close. That's not the case any longer.

Do have any idea how much the gay marriage opponents were out raised in the November referendums? In Washington alone, the pro gay marriage side raised 14 million while the opponents raised around 3 million. What makes you think Cali would be any different, especially with all the Silicon Valley money that will flow to the pro repeal side?

I'm no expert on the subject by any means, and, again, I'm not denigrating Kinsey or his work. I've just read a couple of recent articles (please don't make me go find them) that have suggested that the issues (I guess I mean predictors/indicators)are more complex than the scale alone deals with. No big deal, really.

Those were also reasons but I read the "gay" weekly newspaper, "The Bay Area Reporter" and in several articles right after Prop 8 passed and the "gay" community was trying to decide what to do it said one of the reasons the "gay" community would probably decide not to mount a campaign to repeal Prop 8 and instead wait to see what happened in the courts was that the supporters of same sex marriage spent so much money fighting Prop 8 they wouldn't have enough money to mount a campaign to put a repeal of Prop 8 on the 2012 ballot.

That's not me saying it. That's your own people saying it.

Thanks for the info.

Obviously, the opponents of same sex marriage knew it was highly unlikely that they could stop same sex marriage in liberal Washington so they decided to save their money to be used in other battleground states like California.

Also, that means the same sex supporters will have $14,000,000 less to spend on any pro same sex marriage ballot measure that is put on the California ballot if Prop 8 is upheld.
