How are you not a bad person for attempting to marginalize people who are merely wary of this tremendous social change?

They are not bad people. Do you support 3 brothers marrying? Don't be a bad person now! Do you support me marrying my sister? Don't be a bad person about it!
it is no larger of a social change that legalizing inter-racial marriages, and we certainly know to call those that were against that bigots, don't we?

Attacking and marginalizing people is counter productive. You are getting angry already. There is no need. Tell them why SSM is good, don't tell them they are bad.

You still haven't admitted it, even though you know it's true. You wouldn't call me gimp if I was gay. You are dishonest. Why? Are you ashamed of yourself? Own it.

in what way?

how is it any larger than allowing married women to inherit property or wealth? how is it any larger than outlawing polygamy?

see? so many real world issues about marriage you just can't seem to counter with your narrow view of wanting to block ssm...

if you actually had a true understanding of what marriage is, and you might not sound so foolish.

Did you ever take an introductory sociology class or cultural anthropology class? Obviously not. I understand what marriage is.

I see no compelling reasons SSM shouldn't be allowed. I also see no reason why we need it. Be real. It's about the government perks. I will never get them, as I have no plans to marry again. How is that fair? Those tax breaks etc. are for children. Not for playing house.

Do you support me marrying my sister? My brother? Both of them? Don't forget, if you don't, you are a bad person.

It is not true and you are still incorrect, gimpyboi. Are we clear now? You seem to be getting way too mad over a silly gay thread on Topix, gimpy. Try to calm down.

So why are you attacking and marginalizing people all day every day on Topix? And you seem to be getting angry a lot lately. Calm down. Maybe if gay discussion threads make you so mad you should find some other interests, gimp.

"idiotic scenarios"? "so foolish"? You're angry. SSM was considered an "idiotic scenario" not very long ago. What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult brothers cause you?

The bottom line is I support marriage equality (SSM, polygamy and incest marriage) and you do not. You call other types of marriage "idiotic scenarios". Who is the bigot here?

Why are you a hypocrite?

not angry at all.. again, you are very bad at making assumptions.

then you just call SSM an idiotic assumption...are you angry? see how that works?

being homosexual has nothing to do with some silly religious cult mandate to marry three wives or people that want to marry their brothers for some silly-assed reason...

being homosexual is a normal part of our species. to deny them the basic civil right of marriage to the gender they are naturally and normally attracted to is the issue here, not your idiotic scenarios, and yes, they are idiotic.

yes, you have given me this exact spiel before, is your memory that lame?

if you have issues with the tax laws, take that up with the IRS. that is a totally seprerate issue.

you really need to take a logic course, instead of the community education sociology courses you took. it would help you steer a clear and cogent argument.

It has no bearing only any marriages license, unless you can provide proof otherwise.
A marriage license is a piece of paper.

A marriage is the reunion of two genders who consider the other more than themselves. Who unite in a complimentary blend.

You assert that an inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning behavior has "no bearing"?????????

You only expose not just a lack of understanding marriage, but your deprivation.

Your first sentence is a point blank lie. Especially since I delineate major distinctions in my post.
Your second is a whine based on a false victim claim.
Your third sentence is so stupid, you contradict your own claim by making a distinction.
SS couples are half a marriage based on the facts I state.
Your post represents the degree of denial it takes to attempt imposing a impostor relationship on marriage.

Oh yes... I forgot... Your major distinctions... Venus and Mars... Your pathetic little poem is the biggest load I've come across in years. Opposite-gender relationships are so "unique" and "distinct" that only several billion people on the planet become involved in them each year. I had no idea they were so sacred.(sarcasm)
You say that you offer facts... You don't offer facts, you offer canned snippets that you're too stupid to realize should embarrass you.
You trot them out so regularly nobody even knows what they mean anymore. They're like a word that you repeat over and over again until it becomes a meaningless sound.
Once again,

Gay troll scoffing is not an rational response.

Can you show that ss couple equate to marriage at any of the levels I noted?

No?

That's why a ss couple will only ever be a mutually barren duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Not according to ANY mainstream medical association, but bigotry is, based as it is on irrational thoughts and obsessive hatreds and fear.
You can get help, but you have to take the first step.
I took my first step long ago, and I learned that the homo says anything to defend his odd way of life. Maybe you should take the first step into reality and ask yourself why women were put on earth. You have failed in your role as a productive human being. Now, please tell me how what I am saying is irrational, bigotted and hatred of fear, it's a fact. Your cult has recently accomplished forcing this government to give you what you want not because your cult deserves the recognition by America, but because you begged and threatened law suits.
