How naive you are. Ask your sisters about straight men wanting anal sex.
Anyway, it's a non issue.
The particular sex acts we engage in are not the government's business.
So, you haven't come up with a rational argument for gay marriage.

The fact all you can do is lie about me and my position, and try to insult me, once again shows:
You can't come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.
First, I can't think of how not liking me and being a homophobe would be related. I would never base an argument about gay marriage on who does or doesn't want to marry me.
Now, try again, try to finish this sentence and make a rational argument against gay marriage.
"A person should not be allowed to marry a member of the same sex because..."

Yes, I have, it's a simple matter of equal protection.
A man can marry a woman, so a woman should be also able to marry a woman.

I repeat. Most gay men have anal sex. Most straight men don't.
I'm sure your mother and sisters would disagree.

And since you are for gay marriage, why do you keep bringing up the anal sex non issue?

Okay..........real slow,

If a man can marry a woman and a woman can marry a man, then who is being denied equal protection? The man or the woman?

VV, you're scrapping the bottom again...
You're the one who's talking about eugenics. You want to "cure" or "change" an entire class of people who do not want to be changed.

And you want to do this under the guise of family and country.

This is lifted directly from the Nazi handbook.

If you don't like being compared to a Nazi, then don't support their ideology.

Finally, you won't comment on my post that you know nothing about homosexuality and even less about gender identity.

You get painted into a corner and come out squealing "Godwin's Law!!!"

Man up, Kimmy... Show you've got a little spine.

So what? So it means you lied. You tried to spin it that straight men have anal sex more than gay men because there are more of them. I called out your bullsh!t. Get it? Got it? Good!
No, I didn't lie. I made a true statement. "Most men into anal sex are straight". Are you going to say that's not a true statement?

Look it up moron. Look up the percentage of gay men who have anal sex vs. the percentage of straight men who do. I know the numbers. You don't.
Then get back to me and apologize for your dopey post.
I don't need to look anything up. I am gay. I know from actual experience what is typical in my life experience. Do you? How many gay men have you personally known and had sex with? Many gay men do not engage in anal sex. In any case, it is none of anyone's business.
