Sure. But the fact is most straight men don't routinely do anal sex and most gay men do.
Like I said, noting wrong with it. Just be safe! OK Fruitloops?
If you're gonna ask the answer is yes I do! My lady likes it. And I aim to please!
Sure, but like I said you cant read.

That doesn't mean you can behave unfairly or neglect valuable assets; if the administration insists on women in combat, let it be in segregated units, for everyone's safety.
.
<quoted text>None have shown they can pass infantry or any combat MOS's physical fitness standards; that's why they don't qualify. Most men can't meet those physical fitness standards either; and our military strives for excellence. Lowering standards is a step backwards, toward defeat.

<quoted text>I support equal rights for gay people, just not special rights to rewrite marriage law. I'm pro gay because I always write, there is nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality. Also note, many gays and lesbians agree with us, bisexuals too!
Keep marriage as is because radical social change can be very bad. Very, very bad.
You are incredibly behind the times, you are wrong in every single statement you made.

They have already passed fitness requirements, they have already served on the front lines they have already fought and died under enemy fire.

You are just ignorant of the fact.

I understand you donít like laws to change, get over it, we changed the laws that allowed slaves, we changed the laws that denied women the vote, we changed the laws that kept people of color in a lower class, and this law will change too, regardless of your fear of it.

And the laws against polygamy will change too regardless of "everyone else's" (not yours of course!) fear of it.

More gay men practice anal sex than straight men. Spin that skippy. Prove me wrong.

Nothing wrong with anal sex, don't be so defensive! Just be safe. Have fun!

Of course I mean percentage-wise in case you're thinking you've found a loophole to exploit, Jizzybirdy.

The best estimates are 34% of straight men do anal sex routinely. And about 62% of gay men do anal sex routinely. That's 2 to 1 Fruitcake.

There is no reason to defend the practice, it's fun! Enjoy it. Gays don't need you to defend them on this. Relax. Go root out some secret homophobes!

While the justifications have changed over the years, the most common argument today in favor of a criminal ban is that underage girls have been coerced into polygamist marriages. There are indeed such cases. However, banning polygamy is no more a solution to child abuse than banning marriage would be a solution to spousal abuse. The country has laws to punish pedophiles and there is no religious exception to those laws.

Exactly... I wonít vote you down, go get the signatures and put it on a ballot. Then we might have something worth discussing.

but if you are just going to sit there and do nothing, nothing will happen.

I donít really care about it, not something that is important to me. But it seems to be your lifeís goal.... so .... go do something about it. Donít wait around for others to do something about it.

I agree... and to change that image you need someone more responsible to champion it. Because the only thing people see right now are those specific cases, worse they use thier religon and definition of marrage to enbale them to prepuate these crimes.

No one is actively banning polygamy, it is already illegal, I know of no legislation currently in the works to try and stem it further ( or supproting it either ), however I do notice that no one seems to be arrested for it. They seem to be arrested for other crimes but not that one.

Seems ripe to me, it is a law that is not being enforced.

Go find someone more responsible ( NOT Warren Jeffs ) to be the champion of it, and work to make the change.

It isnít going to happen as long as Warren is the public face of polygamy

Hollywood is already on your side, as others have pointed out there are different role models for it out there.

Gay Population In U.S. Estimated At 4 Million, lets do the math. If 50% of that are Gay men, that would be 2 million. By your numbers (67%), 1,340,000 men ( Gay) induldge in anal sex.

Current US population, Est. 2012

313,914,040


Could it be said that there are more than 1,340,000 men between the age of 15-44(heterosexual) than that of Gay men?

Well with spinach, if you are forced to have it when you are young, you find it more difficult to enjoy when you are older.

I am doing something about it. Hard as it is with you hypocrites shouting me down.

For someone who doesn't care about it, you sure care about it!

Seriously, why do you care so passionately for same sex marriage but not at all for polygamy?

It's as if you believe poly marriage doesn't deserve the same respect as same sex marriage. Is that it Bunky?

Your "go do something about it" argument is so old and tired and it's not an argument at all. Is that all you've got?

I am doing something about it. Just like you and I are doing for same sex marriage. I am making you aware. And I am making you think.
