Time for everybody to face the fact there just isn't a good, rational argument against gay marriage.
Yes. I agree, there are no strong arguments against SSM, and therefore I support it. Marriage is good for society.

But as far as "the time has come", the time has come and passed for you to offer compelling arguments FOR it, not for anyone else to offer arguments against it.

The burden of making this social change falls on you, not us. You want the change. Most people are content with the status quo.


So, give us good arguments FOR it, don't expect us to argue against it. Most of us have no arguments against it or for it.

Well, I can't take all of the credit. There are all of those learned doctors and scientists who have been telling us that there is no such thing as "sexual orientation dysfunction" (where DO you come up with these terms?) for about 40 years.

I've got a better idea. Google butch lesbian forums.
Why does a lesbian dress and act like a man to attract another lesbian?
Because something is sexually broken. Almost a man connecting with barely a lesbian.
Oh yeah... Sexually broken... Can you show me that in the medical or psychological literature?

Oh, I get it. This just something else you've pulled out of your behind.

I swear... Your ass sees more action than most gay men I know.

It's just sad when a mayor allows her city to fail.

Which is why there is a pursuit and discussion of the cause of homosexuality. And your embarrassed gay twirl double step when the subject comes up.

And why I point out the violent abuse inherent in anal sex, the gay imitation of natural, normal sex.

Smile.

Yeah, they weren't bearing gifts, they were offering ...."protection", see?
Nice...{chuckle). Maybe instead of gifts they each had an envelop stuffed with cash, the amount in each determined by the level in the organization.

'We'? Is that the voice in your head and you?

WE don't think you are funny (the trapped lesbian and the straight man).

So, if anal sex between two men is an "imitation of normal sex", then what is anal sex between a man and a woman? Is that an "imitation of gay sex"?

They say "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery".

So not only are you delusional, you're also mentally curved on off-topic, insignificant technicalities and endeavoring to come up with random, sporadic, and incoherent insults. Congratulations. In the art of legitimate debate, you don't even qualify for a tumblr-esque "you tried" gold star sticker. That's how petty your argument is.

No, it is not the right thing to do, and who cares if they come out of the closet, or not? I will tell you what we get, when they emerge, shall I? Public radio broadcasts about "semen cocktails", we get "Main Street" closed off, for a dildo parade. We get public schools, programming the idea that SSSB is perfectly normal, when it, plainly, is not. Among other indecencies. There will be plenty more of these.
There are nice straight people, and there are nasty straight people.
There are nice gay people and there are nasty gay people.
Why punish the good gay people by not letting them marry?
What is needed is censorship of TV programs. Some of the straight "love scenes" are very disturbing.
