Within an hour or two, the 2 major LGBT decisions will be announced.

Below are the 6 possible outcomes, from best to worst for my brothers and sisters........

Which dual decision do you predict?

A. DOMA struck down, PROP 8 struck down on constitutional groubds (all state laws barring SSM invalidated)

B. DOMA struck down. PROP 8 struck down and civil unions/domestic partnerships granted marriage status.

C. DOMA struck down. PROP 8 struck down in California only.

D. DOMA upheld. PROP 8 upheld (California only)

E. DOMA upheld. PROP 8 upheld (California and all civil union/domestic partnership states)

F, DOMA upheld. PROP 8 upheld (state bans constitutional)'

Frankly, I'm leaning towards B - DOMA bites the dust and marriage equality is affirmed in those states where the legal equivalents exist now.

how about you?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
