Homeosexual Marriage in The U.S.

Postby suicide_turtle » Thu Jun 05, 2008 3:20 am

I'm all for it...I just think they shouldn't be allowed to get a divorce after they complained about not being able to get married for so long.

Hell, I wack it in the shower every morning - I deserve special rights. I should be allowed to marry my hand and claim it on my tax forms every year. Is that going to happen? I doubt it.

If two men or two women can get married, how come I can't marry two or three women? That is my sexual preference.
I want my rights damnit!

The point here is sexual preference should not give anyone the right to anything...except maybe an STD or two.

Argue away.

Excuse me? Naturally? My sister is lesbian thankyou very much and she has raised a perfectly capable and thriving child. How exactly is it unfair? That they don't have both mother and father? Who gives a shit? Certainly not the child. She's been brought up with the fact that it doesn't need to happen and so she sticks by it. Nothing wrong. Oh and yes, gay marriage allowed please.

Why? Just because they have a few little problems and are teased about being gay? Wouldn't that teach the child more of how horrificly insulting the world can be and how to deal with it all? I think the kid would be experienced in the long run as he will know how to defend his life. Plus, we are all teased at school about something. There's no way around it. Just so long as they have good friends, there's no harm done. Make sure you stand up for your friend when he is teased. But from that simple example, it's no proof that it's worse off for the child. Make sure you watch "Penn and Teller: Bullshit" sometime with the episode on Family Values. It will open your eyes.

I dont understand why any gay couple would want to get married and endorse a religion that has been overtly anti-gay pretty much since it began. Frankly I would like to abolish marriage, religion and all that ridiculous nonsense that we all know is meaningless but wont get rid of because its 'tradition'.

On the other hand I am all in favour of gay couples being officially joined together in civil ceremonies or whatever. Hell, if a straight couple have to get stuck with each other their entire lives why should gay couples be any different?

Well that's a point I follow frequently but because of government (AKA religion) you can be oppressed simply because you have not had that simple little ceremony (eg adoption, tax rates and so forth). It's true, abolishment of marriage would be lovely but it's not gonna happen so long as you have those religious nuts.
