And yet if it was a man and woman, you would be zooming in for a better look.

I'm not close-minded...you are. Start accepting sexuality as a form of love, and not as a form of release.

We could be killing each other, if that's what you want. Considering your lack of appreciation for positive expression, I would say that's the case.

Marriage is social control; for this reason, I find it quite ironic that gays want the right to be married and the religious right is gravely opposed to this. As for children being exposed to gay literature, why not? Sexual curiousness and experimentation is part of human nature; gays exist, why shield children from this fact? If we try to batter retarded, biased views down the throats of children, they will grow up to be as backwards as most idiotic adults are now.

People are people, sexual preference is really a non-issue. As for the argument of whether gays should not marry because they cannot have children, what of couples who choose to marry yet abstain from having children?

Conservatives preach small government yet want to constitute how everyone conducts him or herself both publicly and privately. Hypocrisy.

What the hell is so scary about gay people? Furthermore, why do people think that learning about homosexuality will forever corrupt their children?

Here's a thought! Maybe sexual preference isn't a problem if we don't make it one! Maybe, if we were to stop antagonizing and demonizing homosexuality, teens who are feeling bi-curious wouldn't be so driven to commit suicide. But oh yes, better dead than gay, I suppose.

Mock me all you want, it does not disguise your close-minded opinions. Don't misunderstand; they are your opinions, you have every right to them. I am just hoping to educated you on the invalidity of your thoughts.

I know exactly what sexuality I enjoy, and that is not the topic here, so I will thank you kindly to not bring it up.

As the son of two gay parents, the friend of several gay and bisexual friends, not to mention pansexual and transexual friends, I have a healthy respect AND knowledge AND understanding of exactly who they are and what makes them...well, them. Trust me, it isn't what happens in the bedroom.

If you think sexual preference determines everything about a person, I have nothing more to say to you. I don't make conversations with brick walls.

Should we be teaching children that being different is wrong?

I rest my case.

What is so scary about gays calling a 'civil partnership' a 'civil partnership'?

Why do they have to call it 'marriage'.

I don't know. Do they?

Still, is teaching children about hetrosexual sex as a desirable thing? Most hetrosexuals would say no. Not to children.

Why then do gays conversly feel that teaching children about men having sex together is a good thing? Is it because they are pushing an agenda?

If two men can marry, why not three?

Why not a football team?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that according to psychology statistics, you are a closet bisexual/homosexual. Don't take your angst out on innocent people displaying their love.

That's called bullying.

Also, I'm calling this a troll thread. I'm not wasting my time with your ignorance. Have a very ignorant life.

Despite the voters of 31 states rejecting gay marriage (zero states have voted for it), according to your statistics anyone who isn't pro gay marriage is a closet bisexual/homosexual?

Perhaps there is something wrong with your grasp of statistics?

You make it sound as if you are proud of such small mindedness. I find it rather embarrassing.

If those two consenting homosexuals can get "married", then who would be the wife in such a "marriage"?

Both of them? Or would both be "husbands"?



What do you even mean with a comment like that? If a woman is more dominant in the marriage i.e she is the one that 'wears the pants' does that make her the husband? I know plenty of married men who do what they are told by their wives for instance. If you mean other things i.e sexually, perhaps it is best some questions are left unanswered as it is not our place to know every single little thing. So long as it is done it private, both are consenting and no-one gets physically or mentally harmed, how does it affect you or I anyway? On that note, I would not expect to know what anyone gets up to in the bedroom of a normal marriage either. That stuff is private and always should be.

I think the issue here is a deep founded stereotype of roles in a relationship. Maybe a gay relationship is just two guys that are really really good mates. Maybe this mateship just goes a bit (okay a lot) further than most mates do.

Maybe we need to drop the word marriage all together, that's what NZ did when they legalised it. They called it 'civil unions' i.e a formalised relationship recognised by state, not the church. In other words a marriage in all but name so that the church and traditionalists have something to hold on to with the word marriage.

It has nothing to do with someone's sex life and everything to do with how the institution of "marriage" is defined. Gays want it defined differently than it has been for all of human history. Between 2 and 3% of people are gay, but you'd think that 60% of people are the way gays talk about how unfair they are being treated.

It is simply another liberal attack on religious beliefs, masked in an argument about "equality".

Gays want to be treated equally? How about knocking off those goddamn parades for starters.

PC? What if your parents abandoned you so you have to live with your grandparents or aunt/uncle. They are still not your mom or dad. It should say parent 1/parent 2.

You're assuming it is about gay people because of your obvious bias. Not everyone has a cookie cutter family.

With the so called institution of marriage easily severed with a cheap lawyer and held in such contempt by citizens of the world today, perhaps those have longed for it will do it far more justice than those who have had it all along, yet throw it away so carelessly.
Getting married, being married, and then divorcing is no longer a way of life, its a freaking drama mill for shallow minds and gutless people who will not keep their vows, promises, or word in any way. Heck, its far easier to start over with someone new than to mend the damage done. Its even easier to cause the damage in the first place than to be a mature adult and live with honor and a sense of worth. I want those who are gay to marry if they so wish. Not because it would hack off the religious right (that to me is just a perk) but because they would actually live by the vows they speak before each other. Love, Honor, Cherish. Straight society has proven that for the most part, it is no longer capable of doing such things willingly. Its far more fun to screw around, lie, cheat, spend the spouse's money and trust than to put forth the hard work and effort that a lifetime of friendship and partnership demands. We no longer stay at the same career for very long, we no longer stay married. We no longer have to answer for our shortcomings because we can run away from our responsibilities. Our parents ( most, anyway) managed to work for the same company for ages, stay married for decades. We are far weaker than our ancestors, and that weakness is inherit on both sides of the coin, not just one party but the other. We must take a long look at ourselves, and quit condemning those who will obviously do far better than us.
