Give Homosexuals what THEY DESERVE AS HUMANS


This is merely a point of Semantics... but Homosexuals ALREADY have the same rights as everyone else.


We *ALL* have the "Right" to marry someone of the opposite sex, above a certain age... Even Gay People.

What you are arguing for, TECHNICALLY SPEAKING, is MORE Rights.


Well, if you really want to get SUPER technical, you are actually arguing for *LESS* rights.... you are arguing for state intervention in your sexual relationship... and that is the Epitome of *Less Rights*

Just saying is all.

Sounds like semantics (above)...

The original examples are right on the money.

My wife's mother was in a gay relationship (obviously after my wife was born/raised) for over 20 years until she died.

At the end, she was hospitalized, and nearly everything had to go through my wife (as her daughter), even though her partner of over 20 years had power of attorney.

In our case, it was cool, as we were more than happy to go with her wishes on everything, but imagine if my wife instead wanted to wield that power and shut her out?

In addition, after her death, had there been a legal marriage, the "spouse" would have still received certain benefits, etc., instead of them ceasing.

There are some very practical points for allowing gay marriage, and yes, it is seeking equality, for the "right" of marrying a sex they aren't attracted to, is not really equality.
