According to Justice Scalia, Gays are Made Up Minorities

Lord, this man is too much!

Justice Hater Pants spoke at a Federalist Society event, stating that the high court shouldn't get involved in matters that “invents” new minorities. And by new minorities, he means us (LGBT).
He said:
“It’s not up to the courts to invent new minorities that get special protections." 
So according to him, we are made up. And we don't need special rights. Goddess, can we get him out already?

Funny, I think of him as a made-up justice.

But he's a real bigot and homophobe, let's not forget that.

I've read arguments that were made in the 19th century that women didn't need a constitutional amendment in order to be "given" the vote - as persons and citizens they were entitled to vote. The US constitution never reserved the vote only to those with penises.

The arguments made sense to me. Recognizing the right to vote in the 19th century - before a constitutional amendment made it explicit and incontrovertible - would not have been making up special rights for some new imaginary victim class any more than recognizing equal marriage rights is now. But, of course, had Scalia lived in the 19th century (... doesn't he? ...) he would not have allowed himself to read the plain meaning of the words of the constitution and declared that women have as much a right to vote as any other person and citizen.
