Because only same-sex partners have sought legal marriage to date.

By the way, people have posted information to you to disprove what you write......all folks like you do is call it corrupt!!!
We will see what happens over by 2016...it seems that your supposed 10 states are all suspect.

By the way people have posted information to you to disprove that you write and you choose to blindly ignore all fact....all gays like you do is call it bias!!! When you gays get even one state constitution to include same same sex marriage then we will take note.

Anal sex is an act that has risks just as driving. And let's not forget that vaginal sex has risks too. So many women and women transmit HPV back and forth--even in marriage.
The CDC says that "HPV is so common that nearly all sexually-active men and women get it at some point in their lives. This is true even for people who only have sex with one person in their lifetime".
I see you are on of those gays who hate the elephant in the room, HIV. 80% of people with gays are gay men and 95% of the HIV cases were due to direct or indirect MSM.

Lesbians have the highest rate of breast cancer and have almost twice the number of HPV cases as straight women while only been .00005% of the population

Too much logic here. You know that so-called gay rights was dreamed over by two lesbians, who were fighting over who would the man and who the woman. They both started screaming that it was their right. The both left the room. Since then gays have always been on the far left.

As you're aware, HPV can cause any number of issues, including cancer. WebMD reports "...virtually all cervical cancers -- more than 99%-- are caused by these high-risk HPV viruses". The American Cancer Society predicts that about 12,170 women will find out they have cervical cancer in the U.S. this year.
There's only one sure way to eliminate any chance of HPV infection: Avoid all genital contact with another person. Should we outlaw heterosexual vaginal sex?
You are still trying to equate the two?

Really.

So dr. does vaginal intercourse have the same risk of ripping the vaginal wall as anal intercourse does tearing the anal wall?

Son, learn the difference between risk and inherent harm.

Interestingly, there has been a lot written about vaginal tearing, cuts, and irritation as the result of heterosexual intercourse.

You should look it up.

Maybe you should ask your wife. Or maybe not... You may not like the answer. It could be that you're not "adequate" enough to make a difference down there.

Pietro...
If millions of Californians voted to ban all gun sales in the state, would you agree that the Supreme Court should let their decision stand?
Of course not. There is a Constitutional Amendment that allows for gun ownership.
There is also a Constitutional Amendment that doesn't allow for parts of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Just because millions of people express an opinion at the polls does not mean that they can overturn the Constitution.
The only way to change the Constitution is by way of amendment. There is no amendment barring same-sex marriage.
VV, you're being silly. Guns are explicitly mentioned in the Constitution. SSSB is not.

Kimare,
Let me try to put this in a manner that you understand. Let's look at history.
Throughout the history of mankind, anal sex has been practiced among straight and gay individuals. It has been going on since the onset of this country. In fact it was probably even more prevalent in history since it was a common means of birth control. There were no condoms. There were no birth control pills. People had to figure out a way early on to have sexual intercourse without always getting knocked up. Now how do you think they did it?
If anal sex were so unhealthy and demeaning, we wouldn't have come this far. Mankind would have ended long ago.
The facts do not support your idea.
Now, let's talk about the contemporary world we live in. In our society anal sex between consenting adults is legal. And none of your bluster and scare tactics will end that.
Finally, please take your attention off my ass. I've seen your photo. You are short. I don't care for short men. And I particularly don't care for short men who are morons. I have standards--none of which you meet.
Again with the silly act...
Drug abuse is extremely dangerous, lethal in fact. Would they (drug addicts), COULD they have come this far? They have. Neither drug abuse nor SSSB have the power to end mankind. however, they are both behaviors to be avoided, even though there are self-destructive types that pander to both sets.
Now, anal sex between consenting adults may be legal, however, calling it "marriage" is like putting a suit on a pig. It's still a pig. And it has no business wearing an Armani.
Stop trying to drum up some interest from KiMare, he has no interest in you. He has a wife. His head is screwed on right. You could learn something from him.

Sure, that's more of the "made up words" that your kind likes so much. Pity that you have no respect for the English language, but what can we expect from your type? Very little that has actual value.

...just because someone said you had spaghetti sauce for brains doesn't make you Italian.
The Constitution does not spell out you can paint your house the Color of Florida orange in neon bright hues but the fact is freedoms like than are ingrained in that article.
The Constitution and it's Amendments are there to ensure all American citizens are awarded a full set of liberties and freedoms and from any angle you look at it the freedom to marry the adult of your choice is covered hence the dismal failure of losers like you trying to squash gay marriages in the long run.
Good bye.
Signed, "loser".
It's "Pietro Armando". See? It's right there. Easy to read. It's a shame that you have spent so much time fixed on ass, and hardly any time learning to read properly.
And, no, there is no mention of SSSB in the Constitution.
Goodbye, loser.

Marriage was 'invented'???
You mean...like the wheel???
LOL!!!!
And it's your claim marriage was "invented" to produce children???
Really.
Funny....but it seems most women can get pregnant while being single. Also...I never saw a single reference to some rule that you have to have kids after marriage. I never saw any mention of children in marriage licenses either.
Where did you get your "facts"???? In a hallucinigetic dream when you downed 3 ecstasy pills with a mix of tequila, top shelf vodka and a helping of acid???
As far as claiming having children is not a requirement of marriage....please specify how it proves to be "counterproductive".
Does not having kids when married slowly dissolve the marriage?
You're a MORON. I wouldn't be shocked if they found you wearing your underwear outside of your slacks one day only to see you get mad because no instructions were put into the Fruit of the Loom package of briefs you bought the day before.
Dan, you seem to be stuck on stupid. Here, come here and let me smack the living shit out of you, it might help...

"Most people who try anal sex never try it again." That's what you say... Do you have any facts to back that statement up?
You also say that anal sex was used by a tiny percentage of primitive cultures to prevent pregnancy. Great ancient civilizations, such as Peru, Japan, Rome, and Greece all practiced anal sex--heterosexual and homosexual.
I stand by my comment that heterosexual couples engaged in anal sex as a means of birth control. I never indicated that mankind would have ended had these couples refrained from having anal sex. I simply pointed out that back when there were no condoms or other birth control means, couples utilized whatever was at their disposal to engage in intimate behavior. And since very, very few husbands want to see their uterus turned into a clown car--to see how many people can emerge from it--they did whatever they could to keep their family size to a level that they could support.
Finally, the picture that I just this minute saw of you (the one I was referring to) is of you standing with your arm around your wife. And unless she's 6'4", I'm guessing you're around 5'8" or 5'9". That puts you firmly in "Ewok Stature". Maybe you should buy some lifts for your shoes.
We have as many, if not more, facts than you. We pick and choose which facts we like. Ours, however, are valid, based upon centuries of observation. You have 20th Century spin.
