10 Beyoncé GIFs That Describe My Feelings About the Supreme Court's Rulings Today

This morning, the Supreme Court issued its rulings on the cases of United States v. Windsor and Hollingworth v. Perry. The first challenged the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act and the second challenged the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8. Basically, it was a high stakes day for the LGBTQ community. To work through my mixed feelings about the Court's rulings, I enlisted the help of the greatest means of expression known to Man: the Beyoncé GIF.

Getting ready for work, I knew that the Supreme Court would be issuing its rulings, but I didn't know how the Court was going to rule, so I was like:

Then the Court announced it had ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. So I celebrated:

What a great day for civil rights.

Then I had to wait again for the Court's decision on Prop 8, and I got impatient.

There was no broad ruling which legalized same-sex marriage, which means the Court sort of dropped the ball:

But at least California can start performing same-sex marriages again.

All-in-all, I'm feeling pretty good about today.

Which means it's time to party.

    Congratualtions, Paus. You have managed to gurgle up one of, if not the, most inarticulate arguments I've ever heard. First, let me start by saying that Beyoncé did not, in fact, write this. Rather, I did. And secondly, if I'm reading your incoherent logic correctly, you're saying that same-sex marriage should not be legal because it once was illegal? Correct me if I'm wrong here. I can't even begin to explain how stupid your ideology is. Under your theorem slavery should still be legal. Women should not be allowed to vote. Pardon my presumption, but I'll assume that you don't own property. Are you saying that you don't think you should be allowed to vote? Because you wouldn't have in 1776.

    Beyonce, here is my thought. The speed limit sign says 35 mph. I love to drive fast so I do 75 mph all the time no matter what any sign says. It is something I love to do, drive fast, and it is my right, right. This sounds like something Justin Bieber and his crew would say. My point is, original laws where established for a reason and new laws for our protection, and if we feel we can break them without any consequences or limits then can we really say we are free?.
