My only real problem with gay marriage is that I think children should grow up with both a male and a female role model, preferably a mother and a
father in a traditional family unit. Yes, you will be able to point to plenty of cases where kids would do better with a loving gay couple that wanted
them instead of a hateful, incompetent, or otherwise dysfunctional straight couple, and I would not deny it. But on a mass level, I think when you
start tinkering with the fundamental building-blocks of society (such as family structure) that have stood the test of time for at least ten thousand
years, great caution at the very least is called for. There has been no wider debate on how social structure, etc. would be effected, only on the
personal rights of gays to do this or that. To me that is a glaring omission.
That's my opinion, I'm not interested in arguing about this topic becuase nobody ever convinces anyone of anything, but I will state my opinion for
the record so it is represented as one way of looking at the situation.
