If a gay guy becomes unable to perform sexually, he is still gay. His attractions--his orientation--is to be attracted to other men.
Being gay does not require an "action". In fact, as most gay men report, they knew that they were gay from an early age because of their ATTRACTTION to other males.
Being a polygamist requires an act. It requires an attempt to have multiple spouses.
I am willing to bet that many married men look longingly at other women. Does their desire to be with other women make them "polygamists"? No! It makes them men with attractions--with an orientation toward the opposite sex.
You're not going to win this one.
Finally, I WILL NOT endorse any attempts to legalize polygamy, marriage between blood relatives, underage marriage, etc.
Your post above, about the guy who wishes to legalize his marriage to his three wives, has the SAME access to the SAME processes that the LGBT Community has used to fight for their own marriage recognition.
He has the same capability to go out and hire an attorney, seek the backing of the ACLU, mobilize other polygamists, educate the public on the benefits of polygamy, sway the masses that denying polygamy is discriminatory behavior, etc.
Perhaps he'll be successful.
And Mexican Americans had the same right to fight for equal rights that African Americans did? Or did they get them at the same time?

Did MLK only seek equality for African Americans or for all races?

How does it feel to argue against true marriage equality? You are doing it poorly.

No need to make assumptions, your hostility towards polygamy is obvious.

Tony, just so you know Frankie is not the least bit interested in Polygamy and has said so, he only uses it to attack anyone that supports same sex marriage.

Never assume he is being honest about anything he says, he has been caught in so many lies by so many people here it is staggering.

He is nothing but a troll

The bozos bringing this up here have already stated that they are personally not willing to lift a finger to promote polygamy, they just want to whine at you for not doing so.
whining, it is what they are good at
This particular bozo just wants to discuss marriage equality without you bozos attempts at censorship.

Seriously Frankie, if you bring in the UFO folks it will swell your numbers to over twice the current size.
And now it takes a dump on the Common Man, the very same group that it needs so desperately in order to claim "support" for its decadence.

The child has never gotten a vote in the composition of their families.
Also, the child will readily adapt to nearly any situation.
Those two statements are perfect evidence that ss couples do not equate to natural parents. It even puts into doubt their ability to care for children.

The rest of your post is pure denial and gay twirl.

Perhaps you'll refer us to proof of even one of my alleged lies.

You are lying when you say I have been caught in any lies and you know it. It's your M.O. When cornered, you lie.

If I wasn't interested in it I wouldn't be deflecting your hate of it.

And if you didn't fear it, I wouldn't have to.

No answer, eh? Figured. Better to remain silent and people might suspect you have no argument than post stupid ad hominem and remove all doubt.

You are a hater, Not I.

Why is "if heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage" of any consequence to "why should monogamy continue to be so important?"
What does monogamy have to do with polygamy? Plenty of traditionally married couples are not monogamous. They cheat all over the place, divorce and remarry, etc.
There is no cause and effect here. It's a matter of perspective.
It's a simple concept really. When many states have decided heterosexuality is no longer relevant to marriage, why is monogamy still relevant?

Ask for help. Sound it out. Remember, there are no dumb posts! Only dumbass posters like yourself.

In other words, you lost. Unless you consider ad hominem stupidity winning, in which case, you won!

Thank you for a great example;
Society for too long denied that Blacks were people because of their skin color.
Now we are attempting to deny that moms/dads are unique and significant roles.
Every person in existence has only ever one real mother and father. Never two, and always both.
You want to make them meaningless. A zero. Must make your mom and dad proud...
Poor example, Mary, because Moms/dads aren't being denied ANYTHING. They already have parental rights/responsibilities.

Try again. Better yet, don't.
