Though women, who represent about 15 percent of the force, are significantly more likely to be sexually assaulted in the military than men, experts say assaults against men have been vastly underreported. For that reason, the majority of formal complaints of military sexual assault have been filed by women, even though the majority of victims are thought to be men.

ďMen donít acknowledge being victims of sexual assault,Ē said Dr. Carol OíBrien, the chief of post-traumatic stress disorder programs at the Bay Pines Veterans Affairs Health Care System in Florida, which has a residential treatment program for sexually abused veterans.ďMen tend to feel a great deal of shame, embarrassment and fear that others will respond negatively.Ē

Because they're stupid...And they think that we are, too...

I donít know why someone would mention procreation as having anything to do with being able to marry, it isnít now, and never has been, at least not in this country.
That's because it was the original concept behind marriage. You need to get up to speed, D.

Well I have some interesting information for you that you are obviously ignorant of.
There are millions of people married who either cannot, or choose not to have children. Our government has not restricted marriage only to people who can or intend to have children. That isnít an opinion, that is a fact.
There has never been a law restricting people from marrying because of their ability or intent to have children or not.
It never has, and we are not about to vote in a new law so you can specifically exclude these people.
You're a fine one to talk about needing to get caught up. Marriages have been anulled for infertility. It used to matter, before the lawyers found out how to twist the Constitution into a Contract of Entitlement.

Here you go
you are implying and I will be happy to correct you
procreation is not now nor has ever been needed to obtain a marriage license, and has no place in any argument against same sex marriage.

It's like the child begging for a cookie. Being told "no". And the child pouting "it was made to be eaten." As if that is enough to justify it.

"As legal a marriage as yours or mine"? Ya don't say. So the state has the same expectations of a same sex marriage as it does an opposite sex marriage, the same presumptions? It makes the same pronouncement, as in "By the power vested in me by the state, I now pronounce you husband and wife"?
<quoted text>
True

<quoted text>
Ahhhhhh.....therein lies the distinction, pun intended. As we already discussed, same sex couples, cannot, according to the legal definition in that state, "consumate" their marriage by the first act of sexual intercourse, also know as colitis. Thanks for playing though. But don't worry, u won't go home empty handed, we have a collectors set of "Big D" action figures.
Do those action figures have the capes? And, thought balloons that read "I'm all that matters"?

Many many times, but as long as they keep bringing up procreation as an argument, I will remind them again.

They forget so easily

Why would you want to require something you need to protect from?
Dumb, dumb, dumb...

Hi,
You got to recognize that the only way to get the country going is for the congress to stop everything so that we can win back the White House in 2016 and begin GOD's reign for a thousand years. This Means stopping all the stalin-wet dream socialist security, mad scientist medicare, altar destroying minimum wages above $3 an hour, christ killing unions & benefits that rob our pride, bum making unemployment insurance, free medical services for fornicating women, education that teaches abominations like evolutions and sciences which fly in the face of faith and abortions at every street corner for misguided gays and leasbins or muslims.
When we have saved the money these awful wastes now consume we can build the great wall to keep out all foreigeners and weirdos who dont believe and who talk funny and prosecute gods wars as he tells the bosses to have us do. Join us in the TEAPATRY and we will go forth into the milleniums God Bless.

I don't see why Big D and others feel the need to try and spin it that having children is not one of the main reasons we give government benefits to marriage. It's not necessary to lie. It's counterproductive.

Even childless marriages are good for society, that should be their argument if they were honest.

what we need said the congressman is for the minimum wage to disappear as it causes businesses to fail and/or not start. he is willing to compromise and says that if we absolutely must have this socialist stain on our books then let it be at the proven real amount that folks can get by on as long as they dont hoard their money. he says that studies have shown that when the wage was $2.25 an hour, why everyone was happier then and what we have now is a time when everyone is not happy so lets go back to the tried and true and get the wage to a stable $2.25 an hour, with no union meddling and no insane benefits for hobo bums who just want free stuff, then everyone can be happy again. We have to trust the party to have studied this and come to a conclusion that will benefit us all.
Why don't you go ahead and fire off an E-mail to the Bush family? Let them know they'll be happier without all of that dosh? I suspect that they'd be a lot happier depriving you of your money, but that is where you run out of justification. Get the hell off your soapbox, I don't need a pay reduction.

Me too. Big D just goes away for a while after you catch him lying, then comes back the next day like nothing happened and calls everyone else liars.

Ever notice he only posts during working hours? Stealing the boss's time.
