This is my main point about using one of two options. Either make marriage universal for everyone, or remove the word marriage from the gov't and make everyone's "marriage" a civil union. That way, the people that argue that a civil union for gays is ok but marriage is not will be placated, the gays will not feel discriminated against because nobody is married by the gov't, and everyone will get all the benefits afforded to them by the state for said union.
The whole argument against gay marriage is a joke IMO... however, I'm a pragmatist and I understand that you can't remove bigotry from the world.
They are discriminated from because it isn't normal, just like beastiality and pedophiles are treated different. I gaurantee you guys that whenever you see a pedophile you feel disgusted. Should we allow that too? Most people choose homosexuality because of a lack of a father figure, look at the correlation of African-Americans without fathers, and the highest percentage of gays being black as well. It's not normal, whatever you want to
believe, YOU ARE NOT BORN GAY!
The only person I got angry at was S_I_C, and that was because his post was horrible.
How was my post horrible? Just because I don't agree with your view? All I said is that not everyone wants to see dudes kissing, you can go ahead and keep believing that everyone does, face the fact that the people that do are a minority.
