Gay marriage and same sex marriage are the same thing. I'm not interested in playing word games.

You can not come up with one state interest for allowing same sex marriage.
If you know of a state interest you could finish this sentence. The state interest in changing the law and allowing same sex marriage is.......
As for you sentence. The rational argument against same sex marriage is that you do not have a rational argument for it.
Non issue. We are guaranteed equal protection under the law, that equal protection doesn't have to serve a state interest.
Please take notes, the rational argument for gay marriage is that men and women should have equal protection under the law.

If a gay person just wanted to use marriage to avoid paying taxes and to gain benefits, they'd just marry someone of the opposite sex. Let's file that under "Duh".
Rose's Law, "Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"" Balance? What is the government supposed to do? Balance our subtle energies? Single people can adopt. And you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to marry.
So, you haven't come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.

How naive you are. Ask your sisters about straight men wanting anal sex.
Anyway, it's a non issue.
The particular sex acts we engage in are not the government's business.

.
An argument for same sex marriage is not "Rose thinks those who do not like her are homophobes, so gays should be allowed to marry the same sex, their sisters and their pets".
Neither would "Same sex marriage should be allowed because no one of the opposite sex wants to marry Rosie."
Thanks for the laugh.
And the still and reigning champ of dumb is Rose the Hobo.
The fact all you can do is lie about me and my position, and try to insult me, once again shows:
You can't come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.

First, I can't think of how not liking me and being a homophobe would be related. I would never base an argument about gay marriage on who does or doesn't want to marry me.

Now, try again, try to finish this sentence and make a rational argument against gay marriage.

Yes, I have, it's a simple matter of equal protection.
A man can marry a woman, so a woman should be also able to marry a woman.

I repeat. Most gay men have anal sex. Most straight men don't.
I'm sure your mother and sisters would disagree.

And since you are for gay marriage, why do you keep bringing up the anal sex non issue?

Okay..........real slow,

If a man can marry a woman and a woman can marry a man, then who is being denied equal protection? The man or the woman?
