I don't think you actually read the "challenges".

Great argument fruitcake! Even dopier ad homonym than Mona Lott. But that's all you've got, so you go with it, I understand.
Hey Frankie, can you just see the Hypocracy, in your posts?
You see, Fruitcake, every time I try and discuss marriage, iceholes like you get upset and start with the dumb ad hominem.

So I join in! What else can I do when I'm being shouted down with stupidity by stupid people? Drop down to your level. It's the only thing you understand.

I did. It was made by a gay blogger.

I also read the hissy fit articles that preceded the review.

Did you read the peer review?

<quoted text>When you change the standards, to put women in front line combat troops, you change the conditions everyone knew when they volunteered, and create a different standard, they didn't volunteer for.
Putting women in combat troops will cause more death and injuries for all our troops, that's why I oppose gender equality in our armed forces.

Gender equality is ersatz equality, since no man can bear a child and no women can fertilize an ovum.
So what?
Many women can't bear a child, and many men can't fertilize an ovum. Our rights shouldn't depend on our reproduction abilities. Sterile people should be able to vote.

The physical standards for the military should be practical, and they should not be lowered just to allow some people in. I don't know what the current standards are, but I'm sure there are some women who can pass them, and many men who can't. Bet you can't.

All the states originally disallowed calling gay couples married. Were they ignorant as well?
Or, how about every culture in history?
Even if that's true (Can you name every culture in history?), it doesn't matter. You're just appealing to tradition and popularity. Logical fallacies.

You are confusing the action by an element of a culture (a legislative or legal body) with the culture as a whole. That also usually encompasses the whole history of that culture from start to end.
I simply noted that while marriage has been practiced and accepted from start to finish in every single culture in human history. Gay couples being acknowledged as such has yet to have that acceptance in a SINGLE culture in all of human history.
Snicker.
Yep, ignorance is bliss.

The Glendora, California city council was shamed and slammed to the floor during their own "dog and pony" show the put on for the public at least twice a month.

But men and women aren't treated the same. That's the issue, dummy.

Whatever.
That has nothing to do with the issue.
