I said married couples without children are like barren apple trees.
Gay couples are like desolate walnut trees hanging apples on their branches demanding to be apple trees.

Yeah.... we've all seen trees hang apples on themselves.

You are a goofball.

Every study sets parameters on participants, time, topics of study to name a few. Perhaps you might have more to learn about research methods???
Regnerus established parameters for SEVEN family types. Gays are the only ones whining. Even Slate magazine commented on the illegitimate ad homoan attacks. Their advice? Produce legitimate studies that counter Regnerus.
However, as of now, the Regnerus study is the largest, latest most scientific study to date on family types. Lesbian couples ranked last, after single parents...
Oh, and natural parents ranked first. Again.
Smile.
Is there really a reason to think otherwise? What adult, who was raised by his/her own married biological parents in a stable home, looks back and thinks, "Gee, I wish Mom and divorced and I was raised by....."?

Are there supporters of SSM on this thread who think this way?

<quoted text>There are scientific standards, ya know? Each scientist doesn't get to make up his own rules to suit himself. Variables MUST be accounted for, or you have nothing. You really have no idea, do ya? Didn't you take any social sciences in college?
Comparing apples to oranges is meaningless. You can't draw conclusions about gay couples if you didn't study any. You can't compare long term hetero couples to short term gay couples with any validity. Do you understand? One would have no way of knowing if it was a difference in time or a difference in sexual orientation that caused the results.
We were talking about parameters. Now you are shifting to standards because you were proved ignorant about parameters???

Guess what, you are ignorant about standards too?

Here is a study of gay family study standards, it is not good...

"In fact, an important article published in tandem with the Regnerus study (by Loren Marks, Louisiana State University) analyzes the 59 previous studies cited in a 2005 policy brief on homosexual parents by the American Psychological Association (APA).[2] Marks debunks the APA's claim that "[n]ot a single study has found children of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents." Marks also points out that only four of the 59 studies cited by the APA even met the APA's own standards by "provid[ing] evidence of statistical power." As Marks so carefully documents, "[N]ot one of the 59 studies referenced in the 2005 APA Brief compares a large, random, representative sample of lesbian or gay parents and their children with a large, random, representative sample of married parents and their children."

Perhaps you want to shift subjects again...

<quoted text>You think I don't know US servicewomen have died in Iraq and Afghanistan? The article says nothing about cause of death, sometimes illness, accident and negligence kill more people than hostile action.
More than 1522 US servicemembers have been killed in Afghanistan under Obama's leadership since 2009, less than a third that number were killed under Bush's leadership during the first eight years of the war.
Putting women in combat units means training injuries and deaths, even if they never get to combat.

Moreover, if you remove the element of procreation, you dumb down marriage to just a friendship. Hardly a cause for government interest, let alone selective discrimination.
Smile.
Allowing gay couples to marry will "remove the element of procreation" from marriage?

How? In what way?

No state in the country bans people who cannot procreate at all, or couples who cannot procreate together, from legally marrying.

Remember, logic is your friend.

Can you prove that allowing gay folks to marry will stop straight people (or gay people) from procreating or raising children?

If not, then you will have a hard time showing how a gay couple marrying "removes procreation" from marriage.

This is one of many;
The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;
A apple tree bearing fruit.
A apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
A walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.
The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too is simply silly.
You are so dumb, you can't make up a decent analogy.
You are trying to make an analogy to the definition of marriage. But you fail because unlike the ability to bear apples is pretty much the definition of an apple tree, the ability to reproduce isn't part of the definition of marriage. LOL!

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples do not just fail in the primary essence of marriage, out of all relationships, they are the oxymoron of marriage.
You don't know what the word "oxymoron" means! Damn, this is funny.

Stupid, allowing gay marriage won't remove the element of procreation, people will still procreate. Once and a while there will be a monster mutation. Do you think those mutations should be aborted?

LOL!
