We shouldn't take advantage of volunteers, not everyone qualifies for combat operations.

Women have failed combat training courses for years, they can't meet the physical standards. They are more prone to injury too. Don't harm women by forcing them to the same standards as men, have separate units for females and males. Give our volunteers personal space, don't force them to be your social experiment.

It's our choice, women in combat units, alongside men, is wrong. It hurts our military, causes death and injury to male and female troops and harms moral. Let's treat our bravest with human dignity and not ask them to suffer the indignities of war alongside our daughters, wives, mothers and sisters. Stop the madness!

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples are the picture of defective failure. Mating behavior gone abusive with NOTHING to show for it.
The vote of the IL senate did nothing to change that reality. No vote can.
Reality rules.

The reality is the IL Senate passed gay marriage legislation.

Ahhhhhhh Rosie but they do. ALL men have to same right to marry, enter into a legally recognized conjugal union of husband AND wife. As do all women to do the same. Marriage still requires a commonly accepted, and understood meaning. That wasn't so hard to understand.
That's like saying everybody had the right to marry someone of the same race, so Loving v Va wasn't needed.

A man has the right to marry a woman, so a woman should have that same right.

Women have already been fighting and dying on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan. I think it is time we recognized them.

Your assumptions are totally wrong, there are women who are qualified, who already have shown their bravery and commitment and have given their lives in defense of our nation.

We are not asking them too, they chose the military, volunteers, and I am proud of them.

I don't want to marry my sister, but It want to discuss incest marriage.

You don't want to marry a man but you want to discuss same sex marriage.

We both want to discuss marriage equality, the difference is you want to censor me and I don't want to censor you.

Yeah, Frankie is just a troll flying under false colors. He's against gay marriage, but realizes he doesn't have a good argument against it. So, he pretends he's for it, and floods the forum with posts about polygamy as a distraction. I'm sure there are forums on Topix about polygamy. How much you wanna bet he hasn't made a single post in any of them?

You only see what you want to see, typical bigot. I have plenty of posts expressing my support for same sex marriage.

I have no need to prove my allegiance to you, Big D or the rainbow club. If you think I'm trying to trick you, that's your problem, you're paranoid and very silly.

Now let's hear your best argument against polygamy Miss Thing. And tell me why three adult men should not be allowed to marry.

The possibility that you could reproduce on a larger scale.

The fact that you could spread STD's to multiple unsuspecting spouses?

Banished! Disappeared. Like in some cheesy third world banana republic! You must be proud.
Stop violating the TOS then you won't get banned. I don't go to the mods, nor do I report posts.

Hey Frankie, your vote total is now over 200. Yes that's right over 200 individuals consider you, Frankie, the biggest asshat on topix. I am just happy to have helped.
