Blacks were able to clearly show human identity with other races. Women are having a much more difficult time. Why? Because there are clear and obvious distinctions between genders.<quoted text>
You bet, buddy.
History has shown this: given enough momentum, a rights-activism movement in America cannot be stopped (i.e. racial equality, gender equality, the American revolution...)
Everyone has a purpose. That's what sets the two sides of this debate apart; one side's extreme is shown to consistently show more faith in human capability than the other.
And it ain't your side, if I may resort to briefly using Texan slang.
Before gays claim equal rights, they have to accurately prove identity.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples are a defective failure of not just mating behavior, but the very core goal of evolution.
You don't just fail to equate the ss 'marriage' movement to marriage, you fail to equate it to any legitimate rights movement!
Hilariously, you first attempt to ignore one of many simple implications; If you dumb down marriage to a friendship, you open a Pandora's box of consequences, the most obvious being bigamy.
First you try to ignore the point, then you try to eradicate it out of this discussion by moving it to another thread, and now you assert the momentum overrules the legal implications that show the idiocy of your position. Incredulous denial, not to mention unmitigated ignorance.
