Now that is good...
You make it seem like every species has gay individuals...
You are wrong of course....
How can you make such blanket statements...
Earthworms are bi to begin with.
But there are no species that choose their "mate" from the same sex...
In the absence of the other sex they might turn ,in frustration, to acts of homosexuality...but the "norm" return when the opposite sex returns.
You are trying to refute facts with hopeful statements that are patently untrue. I suggest you do a little more research. The studies that address homosexuality in the animal kingdom are rife. There are NO studies to back up your statements.

"Christian chest banger" is not a "name", it is a designation.

It is a free country for now so you are allowed to think of it in anyway that makes your feel better.

Well, sweety-pie, I call 'em like I see 'em, and I don't pretend otherwise. That's the difference. At least I'm not pretending I don't like the right-wingnut hypocrites that haunt this place.

So I am right you are just a punk with blog balls that has nothing of value to say.

You are definitely stupid enough to follow blind leadership, as they lead you to the slaughterhouse.

I hope to run into you in the near future, if your mother let's you out.

Your kind is easy to recognize cupcake.

Of course your right. You're always right. You can be nothing else but right.

If you say so, Mr. Right. You make me laugh.

Sorry, meant to type "you're" in that last comment.

Glad I'm not always right, like Mr. Open Your Eyes 'Cause I'm Always Right, because then I couldn't admit to a mistake.

God, is he funny.

Tell me how certain animals have taken up living in same sex couples...suppose they Summer on Fire Island as well.

Oh please - that was all happening since the sixties and the free love generation. It wasn't like all of a sudden 5 years ago the divorce rate went up, shootings started increasing and crime skyrocketed just because two people who loved each other got the right to be married. Of the hundreds of couples that got married when the law changed I've only seen 1 or 2 getting divorced. Maybe Massachusetts should bring back the Common Law marriage so all those couples living together will have to get divorced when they break up but at least they'll have right to make decisions for their partners while they're living in sin too.
Get a life and stop living in a stasis chamber or the next time you wake up from your hibernation, it will be another 50 years in the future.

I don't understand why people are so occupied with what other people are doing...I just moved from MA. to NH and I will say some, not all are living in the stone ages. I can say that most of the people on this forum are nieve and ignorant..it's sad..don't you have better things to do? I am sure I will get responses from this and it will prove my point about how far this country has come with gay rights, yet how nieve our population is.....

Are you the same Mark Taylor who got away with murdering two 15 year old girls back in 1973? You'll have to forgive me for asking- I just finished the books "Pride and Honor" and "Justice Denied" by Joseph Horak who names Mark Taylor as one of the killers. You are one of three Mark Taylors, listed in Merrimack..just curious!-:)

As a 55 year old white bear of a gay man, this law is good and will allow me to marry my 21 year old asian smooth boyfriend, thier parents wouldn`t allow us to get married unless it became law, we didn`t want to move to mass,so we waited it out for nh law to pass. We will go elope now.

You wanna ignore science, that's okay with me. It is a verifiable fact that among animals who pair-bond, homosexual pairs have been observed. In animals that pair-bond for life (which is, I might add, very rare), homosexual pairs have been observed.

You don't wanna believe me, that's your loss.
