35. Maybe, maybe not.
Online communities tend to be more equality-minded, in my experience, than real world ones, I think because the morons who oppose marriage equality are not too bright, loud, big and domineering, and won't let anyone else get a word in edgewise in a real world conversation. Online, however, they have to use their small brains because discussions take a literate form, and they lose (because of course ultimately there is no rational basis for opposing marriage equality, but really they lose because they are so bad at defending their positions). Obviously, if one of the dem candidates came here to Democratic Underground, even if they opposed gay marriage, they would be welcome. It wouldn't be fair to gays here, no, but political power transcends some things, and that's one of them. However, if you are one of the rank-and-file, that's different, and if you insist upon rocking the boat with your opposition to gay marriage, you risk being tombstoned for disruption, though I've never seen anyone tombstoned because of that alone. If Skinner wanted to do that, though, I would be glad to see him do that. As someone else mentioned, this is a private board, and you do not have an entitlement to come here and spread your filthy hate all over the place, and I am NOT interested in hearing it even for one second. :puke:
