DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! California Supreme Court Justice Ming Chin

May 16th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Thursday, May 15th, was a historic moment for California and, we hope, the rest of America. In a 4-3 decision, the California Supreme Court overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. The ruling will be final and allow our gay and lesbian friends to legally and fabulously wed in 30 days. Hoorgay, Golden State!

Our joy was somewhat mitigayted, however, upon learning that one of the three dissenting judges is Associate Justice Ming Chin. Chin sided with Judge Marvin Baxter, who wrote in his dissenting opinion:

“The majority…simply does not have the right to erase, then recast, the age-old definition of marriage, as virtually all societies have understood it, in order to satisfy its own contemporary notions of equality and justice.”

Party poop!

Anygay, the real bummer for us is that Judge Chin is kinda Amazian. He grew up the youngest of 8 children in a Chinese immigrant family. His parents–who didn’t even have the opportunity to finish grammar school–were potato farmers in rural Oregon. Chin edited his college yearbook, which is so nerdy cute, and served in Vietnam. And though he’s a conservative, Chin’s proven to be pro-choice. Plus, he sort of resembles our Dads–with that trim haircut and shy, slightly-pained smile–and that gives us fuzzy tummy feelings.

BUT.

As y’all know, it’s a thin line between love and disgrayce. And if you’re not a Friend of a Friend of Dorothy, then you’re no Friend of DISGRASIAN, either.

Court is dismissed!
