He's a funny guy. Maybe it's because he's on the wrong side of the pond.

He's also on the wrong side of 100 when it comes to IQ.

I've heard hundreds of arguments to keep marriage male/female. Maybe Bid D misunderstood:

How's that? The argument is, people in gender segregated institutions will be unfairly treated by same sex marriage because consent is problematic where rules supersede freedom. Prisons, professional sports teams, some universities and religious institutions are gender segregated so they never needed to adapt to marriage among its population. Same sex marriage would change that.

Everyone has their own reasons; even if the sound of same sex marriage doesn't feel right to you, that feeling is real. I'd like to help you express your protection of male/female marriage and your reasons to dislike same sex marriage.

Are you really so dumb to not know that I didn't take it literally? Nope, it is a dumb analogy. Plain and simple. I'm quite happy you took the time to compose it though. It speaks volumes about you. Or was it something you copied? Which sheds more light.
DUMB!
There are only two options here.

1. Either you took it literally because you used the word Anthropomorphisation.

2. Or you used a word you had no understanding of what it meant.

I would suggest you be careful about throwing the word 'dumb' around...

If I copied it, it would be in quotes.

No, just all gender segregated institutions. Especially those where consent is problematic and freedom is limited by regulation.

You remind me of sophomores in college who claimed men and women are essentially the same and that cultural roles are artificial constructs; thanks but no thanks.

Hey airhead, marriages aren't being forced on anyone in prison. The notion is rather silly. And stupid. Just like the way you worded your post.

IQ? How long have you been doing your homework? Do your homework child!
I did homework for 12 years in public schools, as well as a total of 8 in universities seeking a doctorate. Apart from that the only "homework" I've done in subsequent years involves learning more as information in my field advances. That and the occasional internet search to better understand some of the inner workings on a bike or two I've been restoring.

It does, however, appear my initial assessment of your IQ was rather generous. I assumed the first digit was a 9.

What you did was use vegetation in your analogy about humans, thus imparting human qualities. It was really dumb sounding and now your feeble attempts to insult are making you look even less competent. You're sounding more and more like Brian these days.

Tell us, Brian, how will these forced marriages come about? Provide some evidence for the accusation other than "OMG! If they make same sex marriage the law of the land the prisoners will all be forced into it."

I don't care what you do to be honest. Keep posting up your odd thoughts. I am quite amused by them.

You refuse to offer any substance for your argument. How will forced marriages occur in prison? What supporting evidence do you have for this claim?

What about them? You tell me. Again, provide evidence. To date you are the only person I've ever heard bring up this rather odd notion.

Point out where I've said they're essentially the same.

The anatomy is quite different in a couple locations and the endocrine systems function differently for the same reason.

When it comes to capabilities, these exist on a continuum. Men tend to be physically stronger than women yet women tend to have greater physical endurance for things like long distance running. That doesn't mean you won't find women who are quite physically strong or you won't find men with great endurance.

But none of this, not one teensy weensy little bit of it, has any bearing on which gender a particular individual finds attractive, and thus wishes to spend the rest of their life with under contract of marriage.

Now that you've run all over hill and dale about this, let us get back to your premise, how will same sex marriage create forced marriages in prison? Give us a valid argument for your claim. Don't confuse your claim with evidence.

Maybe you can give some commentary to support that it WILL happen. Don't just parrot Brian's dumb premise.

And you refer to others as children and idiots. Hilarious!

"Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage" is the topic.
Where did a judge overturn California's ban on polygamy? Why didn't it happen?
Then, there should be no postings, at all, except for one word posts. And that word should be "Yes".

Besides, Miss Thing, who appointed you the "Topic Thread Moderator" ?

Glad we are in agreement. We both see it my way. It IS a conspiracy, to silence any opposition to SSM.

There you go,'analogy'!

It is a perfect analogy of a dumb argument. Perhaps that is what you are confused about.
