    It’s already illegal in Georgia to have anal or oral sex. They can’t enforce it because of n the previous Supreme Court ruling. This leaked opinion supported by the majority says they wanna overturn that decision. They don’t have to have it pass it all… they all just decide hey we wanna over turn it and here’s why… it’s immediately illegal to be a sexually actively gay man in my state!

    Gay marriage and even our rights to privacy come from court cases… they over turn them and it’s done! No bills… no pressure… nothing. They decided done! The only way around it is constitutional amendment which won’t happen, or state adding laws for protections in their states only… but many states will go on anti lgbtq benders!

    Yeah, you're absolutely right about that. And it's terrifying to think about. But my point here is that people are treating this already as a done deal when it's not. The leak suggests that they want to take Roe, Obergefelle and Loving in one move, but looking at everything else surrounding Roe, this isn't the case. There's a clear likelihood that Roe gets overturned, but the other major human rights cases still have more time. Would they wait until after the midterm? Who knows. We also don't know how Roe is actually going to go, and if that's not changing, then I'd wager Obergefelle and Loving aren't, either. The only real way that the GOP will be able to truly accomplish what it wants is by federally legislating gay relationships as crimes, and that's been an increasingly losing war for them.

    We're going on something that's proposed, and then open up to the public. Very often from what I've observed, what at first seems like a firestorm to human rights, then over time gets extinguished to a flickering ember, and 2-5 years down the line, the general populace has an uptick in support and more bills proposed in favor of helping LGBT people. They may not be great bills mind you, but they add up.

    It's definitely worth keeping an eye on this situation, but I don't think it's time to panic just yet. There's still time, and we're still ahead.

    I feel like you're right. We should not get so scared. It's still a massive thing to think about.

    Quick thing: I thought the "they may try" part made me think of "but we'll be ready". No idea why but i thought of the avengers too

    Well the ruling end out and the concurring opinion went after both marriage equality and Lawrence v. Texas! So it’s no longer a question of will they! They did! They said need to correct the errors… and well… it’s terrifying!
