Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Also @MrMonroe I agree that bans on gay marriage are really discriminating on the basis of gender (I can't marry a guy because I'm a guy), I'd like to see if a majority of the Court supports that reasoning if that Prop 8 cases gets up there

    Lawrence v. Texas + Loving v. Virginia should = bans on gay marriage are unconstitutional

    That's exactly what I cited in my Con Law final on this question

    and anti-miscegenation laws are constitutional because they treat black people and white people equally

    Bans on gay marriage are constitutional

    I've done a lot of thinking about this and I have to disagree

    To be fair, I subscribe to the Constitution is a living document viewpoint

    and also am usually in favor in the greatest freedom for the greatest number of people

    edit: I'm not trying to say "you hate freedom!!" or anything

    also I'm not sure if you're stating an opinion or just the current state of the law

    I don't think you need to subscribe to a Living Document interpretation to get to the conclusion that the concepts behind the original language leads to broader results than were originally conceived by the people who wrote the language

    for instance, I would argue the people who penned and ratified the Fourth obviously didn't have telephone calls in mind but, were you to explain the telephone to them they would probably say you need a warrant to tap someone's home phone

    The transcript of the argument was an amazing read, and I found the arguments that the supreme court posed were extremely interesting to the outcome of the case.

    But I kept getting pissed when they brought up that games weren't considered with worth artistically wise even though movies are. I don't understand that point of view much.

    During certain bits they directly compared movies with this sort of content to games, though

    Straight up going "hey so if this goes through, you gonna ban movies too"

    I thought that was nice

    Current state of law

    Also you didn't state "state bans" or "religious bans"

    And textualists still go "what did the framers think of X" because even the most strictual textualist isn't going to hurp durp the language of a century old document says X soooooo

    They do not go very far past that (or say they don't)

    I think it's up to the parents

    And the market

    And industry self-regulation

    Government shouldn't be involved

    (except in limited cases like broadcasts where you can't stop invisible waves from getting into your house; or the government can require parental controls on things but shouldn't be making content decisions)
    Precisely, except on the government mandating parental controls. Parents have a responsibility to care for their own kids. The government isn't there to be a parent.

    Lord knows the government is involved in too much stuff as it is.
