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.

Right?

There's adoption.

10/22/14 2:49 pm

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?

Is that how you identify lesbians? They all walk around with their boobs hanging out?

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.

10/22/14 3:16 pm

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"

susanr Colorado
10/22/14 3:24 pm

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

susanr Colorado

"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.

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.

I thought so. Liberals used to say they were the ones to protect children. That was all a lie.

susanr Colorado
10/23/14 8:56 am

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.

cowboy Here and There
10/23/14 9:01 am

Yes it is. You would not deny those people, who participate in a perverse parade, children, would you?

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

susanr Colorado

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

susanr Colorado
10/22/14 1:33 pm

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.

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

10/22/14 1:45 pm

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.

10/22/14 1:48 pm

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.

Homosexuality is normal for people who are homosexuals.

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.
