If marriage laws were discriminatory, are alcohol laws also discriminatory?


For example, in most states people under 21 cannot drink alcohol. Isn't that discriminatory in the same way marriage laws were?

    We never did have the marriage laws that you describe. We had one law applied equally to everyone. There was no discrimination.

    Plenty of laws that discriminate are not based on safety. Voting laws are discrimitory but have nothing to do with safety. Eligibility to run for public office is discriminatory but is not based on safety.

    Your answer doesn't address my question. You explained why kids should not have alcohol but you did not address the discrimination issue.

    The point is that discrimination is not by definition a bad thing, as some people might assert.
