Let me help you; mating is irrelevant to the discussion of marriage. Even if it weren't, gays mate whether you like it or not. You don't get to make up your own definitions of what mating is.<quoted text>
Let me help you;
"Mating is a human universal."
I highly doubt this figure, but in the end it's completely irrelevant.<quoted text>
"All known societies have formal marriage alliances between MEN AND WOMEN (emphasis added)."
Many known societies have formal marriage alliances between men and men and between women and women. The number of these "societies" continues to grow and won't be stopping. NO EMPHASIS NEEDED.

"More than 90% of all people in all societies marry at some point in their lives."
No one cares about cross cultural perspective. We only care about the perspective of the state. Cross cultures aren't issuing marriages, the state is. The state has no mandates as it relates to mating or procreation.<quoted text>
"In a cross cultural perspective, marriages are usually regarded as formal reproductive alliances (NOTE THE TIE-IN WITH CHILD BIRTH) that contain the features of (a) mutual obligation between husband and wife (NOTE THE GENDER DIVERSITY)(b) rights of sexual access (c) an expectation that marriage will persist through pregnancy, lactation, and child rearing and (d), and recognition of the legitimate status of the couple's children."
Commonality is completely irrelevant. You are arguing "tradition". Sorry, that's not a valid argument when it relates to civil rights. Never has been and never will be. Your argument merely demonstrates your desperation.<quoted text>
There is no 'theory' involved. There is simply a social science identified commonality that encompasses nearly all cross-cultural marriages. The rest of the article addresses their theory.
Face it c*nt, NOTHING you have stated has destroyed ANYTHING. Gays are still getting married, their marriages are equal to their heterosexual counterparts, laws are continuing to be changed in order to accommodate and regognize our marriages, and all your fundie twirls, lies and obfuscations about procreation, sterility, essences, anal sex, AIDS and anything else you try and bring into the conversation will never alter that.<quoted text>
Face it queen, that single paragraph destroys virtually every claim gay twirl trolls like you make.
You're a loser, fighting a losing battle, on a lost cause.
Oh, and you're ugly to boot.
