There is hope, though. Mexican Coke uses real sugar. Though there seems to be some controversy about the veracity of that.

There's a big hoopla around that now. Due to a new tax in Mexico on soft drinks, they are now thinking about switching over to High Fructose Cron Syrup to save money.

If you go to that article, and follow it up to the link of the study that analyzes the sugar content, it appears that the Mexicans have been adulterating their product with high fructose corn syrup for some time, and advertising otherwise.

That wasn't the topic, pay attention.

Their lives statistically aren't normal.
What?

Many gays are stressed out, as explained earlier, on account of being targeted by homophobes and due to their remaining in the closet for fear of being ostracized.

Sexual orientation is a non-issue.

The hook-up culture is common to all communities, everywhere.

Marriage doesn't tame one's innate sensual instincts.

Marriage is an obsolete custom and pretty much useless and a burden - marriage is more a sexual contract between couples that can be broken, damaged or corrupted as it so often happens in most cases.

Marriage is more a fad than anything meaningful.

If I feel the need for a companion, I'll rather enter a live-in relationship and if I am compatible with the person it could last a lifetime with no hassles.

Some of my friends are into live-in relationships and are happy for now.

Most of my married friends are unhappy with their partners and quite a few have divorced.

My own parents' marriage was a disaster and both passed away in great grief hating each other and my late sister's marriage to an Israeli engineer living in Canada also ended in disaster and tragedy.

Marriage as a "venerable" institution is dying out in progressive societies with Japan taking the lead in this matter. Europe and America are fast catching up.

I don't consider high levels of promiscuity a major issue since sexual permissiveness is a subjective phenomenon and so long as one takes precautions one can stay disease-free in body and sound in emotions and mind provided the person concerned is sufficiently resilient in mind-body to external influences ...

I consider the abnormalities arising in mind, body and behavior due to inbreeding, child/marital abuse, human trafficking, slavery, the excessively high rate of divorce among straight couples, widening socio-economic disparity leading to impoverishment of people, reckless destruction of the ecosystem, cruelty to animals, close nexus between governments, organized crime and terrorism, satanic rites involving human sacrifices, racial hatred, wars, destruction of nations, religious fanaticism and crime more damaging to individual and collectivity than gays showing relatively high levels of psychological stress.

See, ultimately, whatever be your lifestyle, success and happiness depend on how well you make intelligent and helpful choices with the capacities that you possess and how well you employ these personal resources in relation to your surroundings.

Again you are wrong about the earth being "too crowded" , if you feel so then go ahead and kill yourself.
Go live in the sparsely populated Gobi desert, Tundra or in the rainforests of the Amazon.

The habitable world is getting overcrowded and resources are becoming scarcer and besides most people are of an inferior/dysfunctional kind who're contributing to the escalation of social problems everywhere.

The growing global population is mostly a Third World problem where rampant poverty, high rates of corruption, soaring crime, routine exploitation of the weaker sections of society, inadequate infrastructure, widespread illiteracy, mind-numbing violence and senseless superstitions have bankrupted and nearly destroyed these countries.

This growing population mess can be arrested by educating the masses on the advantages of sustainable living and by the introduction by governments of mandatory family planning measures (contraception) with the stress being on late marriage and procreation of 1 or 2 kids at the most.

Thanks for the long winded reply, Marriage is a bond for a reason.
Children need stability , they need both mother and father to have normal lives.
You are making excuses for gays, doesn't change the fact that they aren't normal.

I have 8 on a laptop. Its not so bad, though I dont need to do much with it there, and I can certainly understand the legions of secretarial staff worldwide having meltdowns over retraining. But I cant risk 8 on my desktop.

Interesting comment that is totally unsupported by any history or scientific modeling. But an interesting take, never the less, even if it is hogwash.

There was a study out a few months ago that summarized all the studies to date on the subject of gay marriage. The conclusions? That children from gay marriages were just as happy, if not more, than children from straight marriages. Which supports your idea that marriage is good for children. However, your bias is a bit homophobic.

Studies show that far more serial killers come from traditionally heterosexual families than gay families.

Coincidence? I think not.
