I followed because you are on the recommended follow list. Welcome to SOH.
I prefer the term 'same sex marriage.' Marrying the same sex doesn't necessarily make you gay.
I am not gay and have nothing against them but I believe marriage should be between a Man and Woman.
I have no problem with a Civil Union or Partnership or any other wording but marriage I disagree with
Marriage between any people old enough to consent should be legal. I have no business or right to make that decision for them.
No. It's unnecessary. Marriage is for a man and woman that produce healthy families.
So... Marriage is not for a widower who falls in love at age 70. Or for a young woman & the man she loves, if she's had ovarian cancer & had both ovaries and her uterus removed.
Sure! And adoption is also an option for same-sex couples (as are various forms of IVF & surrogacy).
You're not really suggesting that 70-year-old not be allowed to marry unless they're willing to adopt a child, are you?
No Susan. Not for gays. It's not natural.
Your conclusions aren't logical, then. Why don't you just say you don't approve of same-sex marriage, period, instead of trying to find reasons for it that don't hold, logically?
You would give this person walking around children naked, in public, huh?
Give her a baby...
Is that how you identify lesbians? They all walk around with their boobs hanging out?
How about these two?
I went looking for topless heterosexual strippers, to toss a couple of those at you, but (a) I'm not sure the (il)logic would make it through, (b) there were too many of them to pick from and (c) I was just going to end up in porn sites.
If you think all, most, or even many homosexuals parade their sexuality in offensive ways, no wonder you dislike them. THEY DON'T.
These parades go on all over our nation, in public, in front of children. You'd give all of them children, huh?
Show me where I said that. You can't, because I didn't.
Children aren't allowed in strip clubs because it's wrong. Children can watch naked gays performing sex acts, in public, every year though.
"adoption is also an option for same-sex couples"
Saying it's an option doesn't say that I (or anyone) would give all same-sex couples children. No more than I (or anyone) would give all heterosexual couples children. It simply says it's an OPTION, as a counter to your statement that marriage is
"for a man and a woman that produce healthy families" (& ignoring the fact that some heterosexual couples produce (unhealthy* children).
And again, if you think all lesbians participate in Gay Pride parades, you're just... wrong.
I'm done here; I see no reason to prolong this.
Would you deny that woman a child?
No. Of course you wouldn't.
Cowboy, have you considered moving to Serbia?
No. Would you consider giving a child to people that go naked in public and commit sex acts in front of children?
I wouldn't considering giving any of my hypothetical children to A PERSON (or couple) if they did something like that, regardless of who they love. And if Serbia isn't for you, I hear Uganda is nice this time of year.
So you wouldn't let gays adopt, right?
Nah, I'd prohibit whites from adopting, due things like this
Is that a yes or a no?
Provided they meet the same requirements as straight couples.
I thought so. Liberals used to say they were the ones to protect children. That was all a lie.
No, it's not a lie. It's that you don't seem to understand that not all homosexuals walk around in public with their boobs or genitals hanging out, and that most homosexuals are perfectly decent people who make great parents, just like heterosexuals.
Yes it is. You would not deny those people, who participate in a perverse parade, children, would you?
I never said that I would.
Would you deny them?
Yes, but let's just call it "marriage", same as any other, and move on.
Is this guy for real?
Since it does not include me, I'll let those involved, decide.
Should be legal.
Yes. And then let's just call it "marriage."
How about no
Because that's not my answer to the question. I've been hoping for marriage equality for almost 50 years.
I don't like gay marriage it doesn't feel right
I imagine that's because you're not gay. Neither am I'm but I've had many gay friends for many years, and I know the long-term relationships some of them have (one, at least, for at least 45 years) are just a deep, meaningful, & valid as the
relationships my heterosexual friends have. I want them to have an equal opportunity to the benefits - emotional, societal, & legal - of marriage.
Let's just agree to disagree
Fine with me. Lots of people don't agree about this. (Although more & more people are in favor of it, so that it seems to be inevitable, federally, not too far away.)
Well if I have a kid and he's gay I'll beat his ass and disown him
Why don't you just disown him, & skip the beating part?
I hope you learn some facts about homosexuality before that happens. It's not something a kid *chooses.*
So it's a disease like autism
No, it's not a disease. It's just a less common form of sexual orientation. Kind of like left-handedness is a variant of handedness. Nothing fundamentally wrong with either.
So beastlialty and insest are cool then too
No, they're not. There are victims involved with both of those (for incest, there's a victim if one is under age; not really if they're both adults).
There's a reason men have sperm to reproduce with a woman not to fuck a man in the ass
Sure, but what does that have to do with loving relationships and marriage? Lots of people are married who don't want to, or aren't able to, reproduce. You wouldn't deny marriage to a 60-year-old heterosexual couple, would you? And if you're going
to invoke biological reasons against homosexuality, you should be aware that there are MANY examples of homosexual behavior in the animal world, including sometimes life-long pairings.
If you think you're going to change my mind by bringing up reasons why you don't like it, you'd be better off going back to "let's agree to disagree" (which was YOUR proposal, after all). I've had 50 years of experience in favor of it.
I wouldn't say no to a 60 year old normal couple is because its normal
And I have 17 years of fuck you
Homosexuality is normal for people who are homosexuals.
And is there any particular reason to be that rude with me? I've been polite with you.
Would you like your poll shared with my followers? You be likely to get some more responses that suit
you better, although your poll would close after it gets 100 votes (which is the norm for Standard users, but would happen faster if it's shared; otherwise they stay open for 3 days).
Whatever floats your boat
"Well if I have a kid and he's gay I'll beat his ass and disown him"
Wow. Just wow. Dumbest thing I've read today.
Perhaps poon should never reproduce? I think that would be best for all of us, him included. Then he'll never have to chance having a gay or lesbian child.
