Why has such big deal been made over the SCOTUS decision on gay marriage by the UK?

Why has the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage been met as it has, with such an immense positive reaction by so many people in the UK, with many changing profile pictures on Facebook in recognition of the fact, while the legalisation of gay marriage in the UK seemed to have received far less fanfare (comparatively).

With regards to the picture changing on FB, I think that's just like a viral fad thing.

To draw a loose analogy to the Ice Bucket Challenge, everyone did it just to be joining in with the crowd and to look good. It doesn't mean they necessarily feel so strongly about it.

It's an easy way for vapid sheep to think they're more intelligent than other people. If everyone agreed with gay rights, they'd come up with some other cause to prove they're smarter.

In the old days people learned skills or become educated to show their intellect. Today they just support a cause, a low effort means for low effort people.

Supporting gay rights may not mean you are automatically intelligent, but opposing them definitely does imply certain things about lack of intelligence / empathy

Opposing gay marriage suggests the person is a logical thinker and therefore likely of higher intelligence.

It isn't just the UK, it's people in all Western countries.... because some people care about people and human rights all over the world, not just the country they live in. Especially when it's a country of 300+ million people, a country with huge influence over what goes on in the rest of the world (this is undeniably going to pave the way for advanced gay rights in other countries) and especially when it's a country where there has been a continuous battle for gay marriage for years now andthe battle has finally come to an end.

Not at all; opposing gay marriage suggests the person's intellect has been compromised by pique and bigotry

Because unlike you, straights, we're not that many, so a win in another country is still a win for all of us. Sad how salty some straight people are because they don't have that same sense of community that we do...

90% of left-wing politic/activism is about social signaling.

Very few of the straight people changing their avatars on Facebook actually care about issues like constitutionality, the legal status or marriage, etc. Its just a quick and easy way to communicate to your friends that you have the 'right' views and are a 'good person', etc. Compare it to eating organic food.

Not really. Human society floruishes when there are strong traditional families, homosexual culture is an attack on traditional society and values and therefore it will make a weak and soft society.

It is well known that societies have a life cycle and during a societys maturity it will experience a state of over consumption and degeneracy before it's downfall.

This is the stage many western societies are experiencing right now.

Gay marriage is a death throw of western civilisation.

It's funny how much women promote homosexual rights, don't they realise that a significant up tick in homosexuality (i.e. Ancient Greece) will severely diminish their Sexual Market Value.

Because it's the USA

1. Huge population; more people have been impacted

2. Global influence: it's no secret that USA has a huge cultural influence on the rest of the world. So now, other countires will likely follow.

3. USA has a reputation of being quite religious and socially conservative. This is a country that has very conservative places like Alabama. So, other western countries have no excuse, if the US can do it, so can they.

All above is why gay marriage legalised nationwide in the US, feels like a bigger achievement.

Women are all either secretly or openly homosexual, that's why. xo

I must disagree; people constantly spout that argument that homosexuality attacks the traditional structure of family, and decreases the morality of society yadda yadda yadda, but it primarily shows that you're afraid of change.

Change isn't necessarily good, isn't necessarily bad; it is neutral.
That's why you shouldn't factor it in your judgement.

You should be asking yourself:
"Does this negatively affect the parties involved?"
If the answer is "no" it should be allowed.
Obviously it's not as simple as that with everything, but it's as simple as that for homosexuality.

Ah, and, get a grip; if you have a problem with "homosexual" culture, have a problem with it, but it is separate thing from homosexuality, so treat it as such; treat it as a separate thing altogether.

What, do you attribute homosexuality to sexual depravity or something? :facepalm::mmm::mmm:
