If I may digress for a second and explain to you my true opinion on homosexuals, I do not like them. Gay men do make me feel uncomfortable, but I do not use my personal feelings to limit their freedoms. If they want to marry, it does not affect my life in a significant way. What they do is their personal affair and I will not tell them otherwise, simply because I do not care enough what they do. Likewise, I won't tell a straight couple what to do as I don't care either.
Now that racism has become so taboo, people discriminate people on their sexual orientation and sex. Seems like society always has to have an inferior class like equality is unfathomable.
Now, I am being transparent, let's make this discussion more interesting. My question is--so what if they cannot reproduce, why not let them marry?
Many conservative minded people will fear that this affects the historical/holy nature of marriage. Then, why not let be "domestic partners" which will give them benefits of marriage without affecting the above?
Why does the prospect of homosexual unions irk people so much?
Why are the affairs of homosexuals so important to many despite the lack of direct effect on other people's live?
Looking forward to your response.
I don't hate or dislike homosexuals. I do hate denial. It is devastating to individuals and society. I am a genetic chimera and a hermaphrodite. Being honest about my condition has been essential for my well-being.

Words describe reality. I'm sure you'd agree that accuracy is critical for our benefit. Calling arsenic 'sugar' would be foolish.

Put succinctly, ss couples do not equate to marriage at any level. But if I start at the most basic essence of marriage, it is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Ss couples are a failure of mating behavior. They fail to equate from the very start. I can and have listed the distinctions that follow at any point of measurement.

Where this comes into my line of fire, is the impact on marriage and children of imposing an imposter relationship. My professional career and personal interest was/is focused on marriage and family.

I do understand that GLBT's deserve rights and relationships. I have always encouraged their pursuit of their own identity and rights. The only qualification is, I believe that GLBT is a sexual disorder. That creates a problem with a variety of issues such as anal sex; harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

I think the demand that people deny an obvious disorder and the historical results of where that leads have created the backlash.

I wasn't trying to be mean, you seem to have a partial amount of knowledge that you use to make conclusions. That is simply dangerous.
1. At the most, you are describing bi-sexual behavior, not homosexuality. However, brief contact with the opposite gender for mating is common among animals. Another example on the other gender would be Orca whales. The females stimulate each other before the male,'slam bam thank you maam' intercourse.
However, using animals to justify human behavior is risky. Often anal intercourse among animals is simply an expression of dominance. Humping dogs also eat sh/t and lick butts...
2. I brought up the Cinderella Effect because you mentioned two males raising the young.
"In evolutionary psychology, the Cinderella effect is the alleged higher incidence of different forms of child-abuse and mistreatment by stepparents than by biological parents. It takes its name from the fairy tale character Cinderella. Evolutionary psychologists describe the effect as a remnant of an adaptive reproductive strategy among primates where males frequently kill the offspring of other males in order to bring their mothers into estrus, and give the male a chance to fertilize her himself."
3. I have lived through the evolution of a number of theories about homosexuality. A domineering mother and absent father was before a psychological disorder. Genetics were more recent. A number of other ideas before that. You may want to look up the current idea,'homosexuality and epi-genetics'.
Again, I am sorry for sounding harsh, I am used to being assaulted for having divergent views.
No worries. Thank you for apologizing. I understand your reason, people were pretty harsh to you on this thread; I have read the remarks. I did not take it personally, just wanted to continue or discussion. Your posts have no politically correct inhibitions, so I thought you would be fun to talk to.

Again, I do not feel strongly about this subject, so I may not be the most informed or educated in this matter. I think you know more than I do in regards to this topic. Yes, you are right, the animals' behavior I was using would be best described as bisexual. I was trying to get away with another fallacy, since I do not know enough about this topic, ha... I know now that I can't get away with these with you.

Are you saying that adopted children of homosexual parents will be subjected to the cinderella effect?

Not Hypocritical...3 does not equal 2! To label polygamy as 'marriage equality' is an oxymoron.
So is "same sex marriage". Two men or two women does not "equal" a man AND a woman. Are two left shoes, or two right shoes "equal" to a pair of shoes-a left AND a right?
I can't think of anything more UN-equal
Exactly.....same sex marriage is UN-equal.
. You want polygamy? then fight for it on your own
Why? SSMers are doing the fighting for it already.
or go to the middle east (Please),
No need to, immigrants from the Middle East are coming here, and going to Europe. In fact, in the UK, they recognize polygamous marriages for welfare purposes.
don't try and tag it along with gay marriage,
But polygamists, namely Kody Brown and his wives, have gone on record in support of SSM. It would be polite to return the support.
they are not even remotely the same
Hmmmmmm.......one, SSM seeks to change the nature, male female, of the marital relationship but retain the number, whereas plural marriage seeks to maintain the nature, but not the number. So which one represents more of a signitificant alteration of marriage in American marital jurisprudence.
. POS
?....... Wait I know this one....that's code for Pizza with olives, and sausage.

Now I am understanding. Your concern is on the kids that come from homosexual parents, correct? I feel that concern is valid. I was raised by a single mother. I mean, I turned out successful, but I had to make a lot of mistakes to get here. Knowing that, I cannot condone women who want to have kids without a father, as I understand the hardships that the child will go through. Putting this back into context, a child of homosexual parents will be confused and most likely bullied in school. Statistics show that fatherless children are more likely to engage in criminal behavior. I don't know if there are any statistics for homosexual parents, but I feel that there will be all sorts of risks for that child. I may be wrong, but I feel that children are already being adopted by homosexual parents despite the marriage status. What would banning ss marriage achieve in this respect?

So, you called it a disorder--what are you suggesting is the reason for this? Psychological? Nurture? Genetics?

I have never really thought this far into this subject. This is getting better!

The rest of your post is a rehash of things I've already addressed.
In the end, ss couples are never ever more than a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage. Your assault on me is only a futile attempt to avoid the reality of that deficit.
As I said, I've seen photos of your wife. She's a bit longer in the tooth that 47. If she's only 47, then she's had a hard life. And being married to the likes of you, I can cut her some slack for looking to be in her 60s.

Default family situations (adoptive, foster, step and single parent) all have negative impact on children. Ss couples would at the least equal those negative affects. At the worst, the inherent negative self-identity of sexual disorders would only increase the negative affect. Add to that the missing parental gender with ss couples.

Now you may want to think about how that relates to studies that claim otherwise...

Let me use similar logic to ask you a question: if human reproduction is purely sexual, why do we need marriage? It is not a necessary aspect for reproduction; sex alone can reproduce. We have marriage because society is complex. Marriage has legal, financial, and other benefits, not just reproduction.
Yes it does.....but at its core is the sexual union of a man and a woman.

Let me bring you up to speed on Kimare... He has been on these and other forums in TOPIX for going on three years. He has made THOUSANDS of comments against homosexuals, gay marriage, etc. He has learned to temper his comments over time since he knows that being as outrageous as he once was made him sound like a kook.

He stirs anti-homosexual sentiment every chance he gets. In his ideal world, there would be no homosexuals. It's a notion he shares with the likes of Hitler.

Oh, he'll deny that he wants gays to be gassed or cooked in ovens. But he wants us gone nonetheless.

He tells blatant lies about science. He claims that the "theory" of epigenetics will one day lead to a cure for homosexuality. But in his discussions about epigenetics, he will not admit that it is a theory. Rather, he claims that it is a fact.

Young gay people already have a tough enough time coming to terms with embracing the way God made them. Society is very harsh on gays. But I'm sure you know that.

Kimare's words only serve to make like more difficult for young and closeted gay people. His words fuel self-hatred. They fuel other's hatred of gays.

But in three years, he hasn't let up. He has shown himself to be narcissistic and grandiose. He believes that the world would be a better place if only everyone followed his beliefs. He has no tolerance for anyone else's lifestyles or values.

That is why he is so despised here. That's why you see so many people speaking harshly to him. He has never shown any of us an ounce of respect--even when there are those of us who have attempted to respect him.

To address a point you raised in your discussion with him re: homosexuality in the animal kingdom. He will talk about those animals that express bisexual contact. But he won't acknowledge the many other animals that have been observed in lifelong same-gender associations. He refuses to admit that homosexuality is as natural as any other orientation witnessed in the animal kingdom--of which, I might add, humans are members of.

You can make up your own mind about Kimare. I'm just trying to give you some history on him.

I think his shit-storm of a genetic makeup also seriously impacted his intelligence.

My wife and I have fostered over ten children. Our desire has always been to restore them to their mother and father if possible. Or the very closest alternative. But that would be just one of many implications. Marriage rights and benefits were originally established to support a stay at home mother and children. Two men do not need or deserve those benefits. In the case of military housing and benefits, limited resources are now extended to those who have no potential or need for family resources. The list goes on.

Most professionals believe it is a combination of nature and nurture. I give a high priority to nature. The idea of epi-genetic epi-marker mistakes is a very logical possibility that has yet to be proved.

Here is some more of Kimare's bat-shittery...

Sunday, September 22, 2013
I remember when the Church rose up against divorce. Most couples worked through the ups and downs of marriage because of God, and maybe more so, because of the children. But then psychologists claimed divorce had no affect on children.

And the government intervened with no fault divorce. And the Church decided it was more important to welcome divorced people than to protect the life-long devastation it imparts on children.

I remember when the Church rallied against legalizing abortion. The shame of immorality reined in promiscuity. But doctors said the cost of back alley abortions was too great.

And the government intervened once again. And the Church decided not being harsh was more important than 40 million children being murdered.

Now the Church is being challenged to call ss couples the same as marriage. The courts say mutually sterile, duplicated gendered halves are equal to marriage.

And the government is once again poised to intervene. And the Pope is recommending that once again the Church step back.

Can't help but wonder what on earth that means for children.

All that is left is, "...and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death." Matthew 10:21

Isn't that the logical response when we have brutalized the bonds of marriage and family at the expense of children?

----------

So, Kim is hoping that children will rise up against their same-sex parents and put them to death. He calls it the "logical response".

And FYI, Kimare TOTALLY takes Matthew 10:21 out of context. These are Christ's words to the disciples as He sends them off to spread the gospel. It has nothing to do with encouraging or hoping that children will see the "evil ways" of their parents and have them put to death. Rather, it is a discussion about what the disciples will encounter. They will see disobedient and disrespectful children rise up and cause the death of their parents; the people who brought them into the world and raised them to maturity.

This is another example where Kimare takes scripture and twists it to serve his own selfish needs.
