I've tried to discuss this with friends, but they tend to get emotional and end up yelling. I think it's because we're face to face and
comfortable with each other so it's more informal and can lead to being a bit emotionally charged instead of academically. So I pose the question on
ATS, in hopes of some straightforward/objective answers.
Personally I am for gay marriage. I don't see anything wrong with two men/women getting together. If they're in love, I don't see anything wrong
with it. Please try to refrain from the "it's unnatural", "god says it's wrong", "I just don't want to see it" answers. If that's your
opinion, please provide the basis for that opinion, but don't just say "it's wrong". I'm just trying to understand the basis for anti-gay
marriage individuals, which isn't based on a blind adherence to norms that hold no actual weight in reality. I promise I'll be open-minded and
won't flame anything. Just looking for opinions.
For example, I don't think it's unnatural, for I don't think the reason we have sex is merely for procreation. Sure, babies come from sex, but
I'd say a large amount of sex is used for pleasure not reproduction. Sex is about connecting with someone on an emotional/romantic level. Because
this is my definition of sex, I don't see gay sex as wrong.
P.S.: I'm new here, so let me know if I should move this thread somewhere else, but Skunk Works seemed the best choice to me. Also, I'm not a very
politically correct person, so forgive me if I offend anyone with my vocabulary, or just let me know.
