So yeah, it's public opinion. But public opinion was pushed by the other things.

Overwhelmingly the change in public opinion was pushed by gay people coming out and convincing their on-the-fence friends and families that they weren't some weird dangerous Others after all. Along with a similar process in the media, with celebrities that people already liked coming out and LGB characters becoming more prevalent. Scientific arguments...
[citation needed]

Granted

For those who skim, when public opinion polls identified people who changed their minds in support of SSM, a plurality of those respondents cited personal experience with LGBT family members, friends, or coworkers as the reason they changed their position.

Don't get me wrong, I adore my nieces and nephews. But I also adore the fact that I can return to my quiet house after a visit :)

Plus, fun uncles never get diaper duty.

Oh Daddy Celestial Healer! Can I PLEASE be your bratty kid? PLEASE?!?

It depends on whether I am allowed to employ a leash, a muzzle, and (as needed) some tranquilizer darts.

Good call with Ozmyn. Wow.

Wouldn't prenup agreements be the least complicated part? Contracts between more than two parties have been standard for centuries.

Polygamous marriage could be managed, legally, using the contract law that rules societies and organisations. What happens when three people combine their capital to form a threeway partnership, and years down the line, they decide to dissolve it? Or one of them wants out? Business law has dealt with these issues for years.

I've never understood what makes it so difficult.

Are fractions other than 1/2 too difficult?

In short, yes. Are we talking about polyamorous marriage, where each person is married to every other person in the partnership, or polygamy, where one person is married to multiple people who are not married to one another? If it is the former, can an individual divorce one member of the marriage and stay married to another?

If one member dies, do all the remaining members collect the Social Security? Would a surviving spouse accumulate multiple survivor benefits as each individual in the marriage dies?

Does every member of the marriage have parental rights over the children of every other member, in the event of a divorce?

If one member is in a coma, which of their spouses makes medical decisions, in the event they disagree?

Is there a limit to how many spouses a person can sponsor for immigration?

There are answers to all of these questions, of course, but not within the law as it exists today. Someone will actually have to draft all of these matters into law, and yes, that is more complicated than simply erasing gender as a criteria for a marriage license.

That is not to say that it shouldn't be done, only that it won't be easy.

After Freehold's post, this is sounding less like Home Alone and more like The Hunger Games.

I think it involves a body or two stuffed in a storage unit.

If that logic held up, threesomes should be most common among gay people, since attraction overlaps so easily.

But I still haven't gotten that MMM threesome. I want a refund.

Aaron, great keyboard playing! Thanks for sharing.

I would love to put up a link to my solo work on the Brahms German Requiem recently, but I don't have permission to put that recording on the interwebs.


So instead here is a random link to some Gluck.

Treppa, every time I hear this aria I think of you. Probably because of all the gorgeous flute playing.

It is from Bach's cantata BWV 45. Funny story: I was looking for a good recording of this aria to share, and when I started to play this one I thought, "Ah, this one is lovely." Then I checked out who had recorded it and realized that this is a recording I actually song on (the choral movements). Glad to see it's still kicking around. Thanks, Naxos! (Although I don't see any of the good choral stuff kicking around online.)

It'll have to wait until you get back. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

Yes! And summer is officially bubble tea season!

International No Sausage Day, which was yesterday. I celebrated by not eating any sausage and I hope you did too.

Tomorrow is Intergalactic Stap Me Vitals Day, where you are encouraged to use that phrase as a substitute for your usual oath, curse word or expression of surprise. Let me know how you get on.

Every day is Sausage Day in my household.

Caladrel - you referred to yourself as Savendir. I am flattered, but that is, of course, not your name ;)

(For those not in the know, Savendir is my elf druid PC in Tordek's PbP, so I find the slip-up amusing.)

Also, I can't get enough of Sylvia's dialogue.

What do you mean "sober up"? Since when does the Celestial thread allow booze?

Yesterday was a better day. We had a work event on the Circle Line, and got to cruise around NY harbor. I had never done it. Got some good pictures of some giant broad with a torch.

Mmmm. Balsamic-marinated roast pork tenderloin, romaine salad with goat cheese and dried cranberries (lettuce is from the garden), roasted asparagus, and noodles tossed with sautéed spinach (from a friend's garden).

It's been a while since I've gone all out in the kitchen.

Try getting some Portuguese ones instead. Unless you're absolutely mad for sugar you won't last more than one bite.

Of course I'm mad for sugar. I'm American.
