Why is it discrimination when the California Constitution also states California may amend its State Constitution with a 50% vote, which was done. This was an amendment to define marriage. Every kind of licence or certification has rules, from dog licences to professional positions. Every checkbox on a application isn't discrimination, just like your application to be a teacher.
The voters spoke in accordance with the California State Constitution, just like they have many times before, like Prop 13. Was that discrimination against future home buyers who were taxed higher? The courts said NO,they backed to Constitution to amend by 50%! In view of that, prior attempts to redefine marriage failed becasue the same State Supreme Court, ruled gays previously were not discriminated against, because of the laws of civil unions and other laws protecting gay people. Nobody challenged that to be allowed. When a vote in the court is 4-3, 3 judges sided with the will of the people, one judge difference is not overwhelming. Boiling it down to simple discrimination is boloney, just like you challenging the sign on bathroom doors. That the womans bathroom discriminates against men. Or restraunts should allow adults to eat off the childs menu, isn't discrimination. That you are not allowed in ladies rooms, and visa versa, and the only difference is genitals, so whats your point?
Don't think I'm not noticing that you have presented absolutely zero reason why gay marriage should be illegal.

I didn't vote to make anything illegal for anyone, I voted to clarify marriage as between a man and woman.
