Just because narcissists such as your self cannot even imagine altruism doesn't mean selflessness doesn't exist. You probably rely on it to pay your bills.
Look, stupid, people have kids for their own reasons, because they want to. They want someone to carry on the family name, they want to see what the kids will look like, they feel pressured to have kids, or they just want to... Not because humanity will die out without their spawn.

The mystery is simple enough. Its solution, however, has thus far eluded our best scientific minds."
As to societal response to homosexuals, perhaps you want to name one.
Smile.
The "solution" that the author is referring to has to do with the origins of homosexuality--not the ability to change homosexuals.

And what are you talking about when you bring up "societal response to homosexuals"? Where did I say anything about that? Are you typing while you are drunk?

WHY VOTE wrote:
Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
It's like voting in the Reichstag that Jews have no rights. If it's against a superior form of justice, be it the nebulous "human rights" in their case or, in this case, California Constitution, it is not legal and you can vote all you want, that doesn't make it legal. It's like voting in the State Assembly to not give people the right to free speech. It's unconstitutional. That's why.

Yes equal protection. The husband and wife are equally protected under law within the marital relationship.
Isn't X-Box one of those geniuses who claims poly marriage seeks more than equal protection? You know, he claims there's only enough protection for two. So poly marriage shouldn't be allowed because it would glom onto too much protection and steal some from SSM.

Or something like that I guess.

The story behind Alvarez-Glassman: he is an Attorney in practice and his law firm. He has been a city council member and a council men as well, but he has been involved in several cities as their city attorney.

Those cities ALL have been involved in serious lawsuits, strange connection his name and the lawsuits.

Alvarez-Glasman argued that Liao has a "pattern and practice" of moving in and out of the city to run for office, while Liao's attorney Nilay Vora argued that Liao has been living in his San Gabriel apartment since he moved in six months before the election.

Some Funny Rose_NoHo quotes-

"Even if that were true, it would be a non issue." (I love that one)

"Polygamy is not an equal rights issue, it just isn't." (another gem)

"If three people go to a justice of the peace and ask to be married, they'll be told what everybody else who asks for a poly marriage is told, No. Equal. See?"

Again, idiot, I was saying people don't decide to reproduce out of some selfless desire to see humanity continue.

Old SniffButts Billy doesn't post much anymore, he's getting way up there in age and causing trouble so he is heavily medicated in the Livermore Loony Bin.

It was funny when he used to post "Shut yer ugly pie hole!" all the time when he got frustrated.
