According to the Tenth Amendment, powers not granted to the government are given to the citizens and the states. That means that conservative states should be allowed to ban same-sex marriage, and liberal states should be allowed to allow it.

Yes. Unless and until the Supreme Court rules that it is an inalienable right.

The Civil Rights act of 1964 voted into law by a representative majority of states has limited your point on this. Also, while the tenth does grant states all unassigned powers, states have neglected this right in favor of federal funds for a century

But purely speaking, as if no other thing existed, you're correct.

I fail to see how not meeting the criteria for something is discrimination. I feel that if that's discrimination, then not allowing upper-class citizens to collect government assistance is discrimination.

Discrimination? I never mentioned that. Did you post to the correct comment?

I was engaged in a political debate in a DM on Instagram.

According to the Constitution, yes.

I agree but also think once heterosexuals get marriage right we can only then make judgements about homosexual marriage that does no harm to anyone.
