Why do you bother asking these questions? I wasnít aware that these other sexual orientations were considered disorders.<quoted text>Si if homosexuality is not a mental disorder, are those other sexualiites also not disorders?
Youíre wandering away from the purpose of getting a marriage license. One desires to be married to the partner of their choosing and reaping the benefits of such an arrangement. I do believe couples who marry are more apt to stay together than couples who simply cohabitate.<quoted text>One does not need a marriage license do that, nor is there a state obligation to recognize any, and all, adult personal intimate relationships.
Another question you need not ask. The answer should be obvious. Legal contract, yes. Religious, maybe but not necessarily. Nationwide recognition so the legal aspects are uniform across the country.<quoted text>"Access to marriage"? The historic, legal, cultural, and/or religious conjugal marriage of husband and wife, present across time and place? So your suggestion is we should alter that concept so two men/women can have a contract with each other, recognized nationwide. Is that a fair assessment?
Again with the questions with obvious answers.<quoted text>"Us heterosexuals"? How about us men AND women regardless of self identified sexual orientation. A opposite sex mixed orientation couple would also have to give up the bennies too. Not everyone fits so neatly into the hetero, or homo, box.
Yup, or husband and husband or wife and wife.<quoted text>Exactly, husband and wife, just like me.
Heís gay, that makes it a lie<quoted text>As long as his partner is a woman, he gets the same marriage license as you and I.
Which state? Mine, yours, someone elseís?<quoted text>Valid based on what? A state could grant two same sex adult siblings a license too. The state can grant any license it so chooses.
What matters is that they have the desire to marry. Because they want to make a life long commitment to each other.<quoted text>What is that interest based on, at its most fundamental basis? The union of husband and wife, in essence the sexual union there of and what it produces. That is why marriage exists, not individual marriages, nor the motive as to why people marry, but the recognition of the institution itself. Otherwise, why would it matter who marries who?
Animal behavior. In several species a new male may enter a social group and if heís big enough and bad enough he kills off the previous dominant male and all of his offspring, making room for his own. Cats are a prime example. At one time in our development it is likely that something similar was rather commonplace. But weíve advanced continuously to the point weíve reached today and will continue to advance. Most of us donít think conquering a village and enslaving the survivors & taking the women as mating partners is okay. I hope.<quoted text>okayyyyyyyyy Huh? What in the name of Francis Albert Sinatra, are ya talking about SheeVoH?
