Not much of "hunk" these days as "m'lady Natural" my legal domestic partner decided that if I really valued our life together I'd deal with my health to insure I was around a few more years. Not only am I down to 140 pounds from th 240 I'd been for years but that womyn of mine had me traipsing the side of a mountain yesterday in snowshoes.<quoted text>
The fact is hunk, children in default family situations already have MORE assistance then children in the natural family setting.
All of this begs the issue; At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples are a direct defective contradiction of the primary goal of evolution. Literally 'unmarriage'.
All of the necessary and deserved rights and protections are available through civil unions.
Moreover, if homosexuals want validation of their orientation, establish your own relational identity without imposing an imposter relationship on marriage. Even a child can see the difference. Especially if one couple is mom and dad. The only natural ones they will ever have.
Anyway, opinion are like buttholes etc, really bored with opinions that my life and living have blown the hell out of the validity of anyway, but a lot more interested in your personal gender identity and what you chose to do with it. Did you opt for andgogyny, choose some gender drag, or did you feel the need at all to display any sort of definitive gender personae? My own transition was from what one could say was "heavy butch" part of which is my illustrious career as "escort" to wealthy matrons in the time when gender anonymity was advantageous, plus some political ideology of symbolically assuming the trappings of traditional male as a means of saying I assume for myself the power that has traditionally only been reserved for males. A little softer, a lot less radical, not politically focused, and really getting beyond the entire idea of my biological trappings being the definer of my quintessential being. Really, what is the inherent basis of gender identiy, what's left when you are removed from the arbitrary definition mandated by social convention? Indeed, what is it to be human, especilly with the possibility to genetically manipulating humans for other environments might mean our phyiology is radically different than our present form in which we impute our human identity. Be interested in how you dealt with such issues in terms of your ambiguity.
