Ss couples are still only ever a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.
Clearly not the same.
In those states and countries where same-gender couples can marry, their marriages are EXACTLY the same as everyone else's.

So your definitions--"marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary behavior" and "same-sex couples are still only a mutually sterile pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage"--they simply don't apply.

I'm sure that galls you to no end. Either get on board or step aside.

Whether you like the decision or not, you have to admit, it's going to go down in the history books.
So will marriage perhaps....

Sooooooo.....they're all comprised of husband and wife....all consumate their marriages through the first act of coitus....? Serious Big Red, for a man who claims to be a social worker....

On board what? The delegalization of marriage? Or how about the continued downward marriage rates both in the West, and world wide?

True, gays can marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, anywhere in these United States of America, and it is valid in any state. The can also divorce the same as can anyone else.

Girls, it is clear the unchangeable reality simply being susictly spoken deeply troubles you. That is the bitter truth of denial. Deep down you know everyone knows the fallacy of your pretended identity.

Especially children.

Idiocy 101: Demonize thy opponent, in an attempt to make them seem insignificant. Call nbames like "Racist", even thoug it is not pertinent. Names like "Fascist", also irrelevant. Well-worn, by your side, but irrelevant. Names like "Socialist", similarly mis-used. You're a fine one to mention beating a routine to death. All you little girls want is for the rest of us to accept your fraudlent claims to benefits thet were designed to help natural families, not any old pairing off of people, which is nothing more than a business arrangement. So, please dear, stop accusing old Frank of anything, as you have little room to point your finger, M'kay?
Um, dingleberry, when you can find any post of mine where I've employed the terms "racist" or "fascist" or "socialist" do get back to me. Until then, I'll dismiss your post as another example of the baseless stereotyping that your kind seems to rely on so much. M'kay?

Not at all honey,

No dear, you don't keep things "real", you simply intentionally sow discord. Your Jesus despises your behavior.

No Penguin Boy, it would be taught either in Civics or in Social Studies. People that actually graduated from high school would know that already.

Don't worry though hon, your taxes still aren't altered in any way.

Still waiting to hear how gays being married affects you personally. Will you be presenting that information anytime soon Penguin Boy?

"your kind" what will be next with you Liberals? camps? hate crime for not fully accepting ssm? will that be a new law in your hate the rest approach? Hasn't your Obama taken away enough freedoms? Will our calls be monitored to listen for any non approving ssm?
