Losing our rights, step by step

It's very simple. If the captured, illegitimate Supreme Court ends up overturning Obergefell v. Hodges which made my marriage possible, I will never again visit any of the red states that vote for Trump in 2024. Not even the damn airport on a stopover. I can only hope that it remains possible to live in my state. Yeah, it is that bad. If you doubt it, note that in his "concurrence" in Dobbs, the most corrupt and authoritarian Supreme Court justice in at least a century, Thomas, explicitly mentions that Obergefell reversal is on the chopping block. 

And this is a big part of my motivation to work to ensure Biden is re-elected. Not that Biden is willing to expand the court, which I regard as the only feasible solution, but at least he's on the right side of history and there's room for progress.
