Gay twirl.
WE were discussing both the history of marriage AND homosexuality. The article related to the later. I've never asserted that GLBT wasn't present at a defect rate of about 4%.
Epi-markers are 'normally' erased. They weren't fully erased in the case of homosexuals. Unbiased persons would term that a 'mistake'.
Scientists have NOT determined that homosexuality is a normal orientation. That is the whole point of the article. Some psychologists have made an assertion unvalidated by scientists.
Keep trying...
Smile.
Scientists have determined chimerism is a defect.
They can test the fetus and abort it.

Proposition 8 is simple and straightforward. It contains the same 14 words that were previously approved in 2000 by over 61% of California voters:“Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
Simple and straight forward violation of the 14th Amendment.

I agree and these morons don't comprehend that but the homosexuals are suing everyone now for special rights and privileges that supersede heterosexuals to have the fear factor over our society.
Name one special right gay people are asking for.
Oh, no, looks like you are going to have to STFU.

I personally think, from what I have read, the reason you refuse to give a position on poly marriage is because you want this with your homosexual marriages adding to the enormous list of special rights and privileges that supersede heterosexuals. You were married to a man at one time and father children with you so why not be married to both.
So, can you name one of these special rights?

Then don't. But the only thing I'm going to say when it comes to polygamy is it's not an equal rights issue.
<quoted text>
No, that's like saying interracial marriage wasn't an equal rights issue because everybody could marry someone one of the same race.
A man can marry a woman, but a woman can't. That's an equal rights issue.
A woman can marry a man, but a man can't. Again, an equal rights issue.
<quoted text>
Not true.
You can't get anything right, can you?
Polygamy most certainly is an equal rights issue. How dare you.

Poly marriage deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex or any other marriage.

Equal rights extends way beyond gender. You are an idiot.

Yeah, there just isn't a rational argument against gay marriage.

Are you purporting that there IS a purpose for homosexuality? And, we all know that no society has ever smiled upon homosexuality, except for the ancient Greeks, who no longer exist, and the oh, so decadent Romans, also gone for walkies down the ol' Extinction Trail... It would seem that any of the ancient civilizations that may have engaged in such behavior have fallen, by the wayside. Detrititus on the road...
ALL past cultures no longer exist, dummy.

Straight people would also be able to marry someone of the same sex, so it would not be a special right.

I am not a homophobe. And I support SSM.

Your ridiculous belief that polygamy is not an equal rights issue makes you a bigot and a hypocrite. Not to mention stupid and arrogant. But that's not news.

Of course you're too stupid to realize that straight people would no more want to marry someone of the same sex than homosexuals would want to marry someone of the opposite sex.

So your argument is just as dumb and biased as theirs. Congratulations.
