Those protections are already available to default parents.<quoted text>
Same-sex marriage benefits children who reside in a home where they have same-sex parents. It protects insurance issues and other financial issues. It allows a parent to stay home with a sick child or spouse without the fear of losing their job. It protects inheritances that would otherwise be largely consumed by the IRS. It provides a home environment into which children can be adopted.
There are many aspects of same-sex marriage that protect children.
And for the umpteenth time, monogamous, same-sex couples do not need protection to engage in intercourse. Just like monogamous heterosexual couples do not need protection to engage in intercourse.
Well, that's not exactly true. You guys have to worry about getting knocked up unless you use some kind of protection--or unless your wife's eggs have turned to dust (like some women I know).
Your marriage is a "mutually sterile, pointlessly opposite gendered half of marriage".
As one doctor said, "Condoms and too much lub is almost enough for safe sex." You are being deadly irresponsible to deny that fact.
Guys don't get 'knocked up'.
Eggs don't 'turn to dust'.
There is, as usual, not one thing true in your post.
