So one's "race" is comparable to one's sex? How many races are there? How many sexes are there? What specific racial combinations were barred from marrying? Who would a person of mixed race marry? Can a mixed race/ethnicity opposite sex couple, accept each other as husband and wife, as a same race opposite sex couple would? Should racial segregation within marriage be used to justify gender segregation within marriage? Why is the former unacceptable, but not the latter?
By reading your response I'm guessing you believe if the majority don't like something that makes it right, shame on you.
If a person is denied rights another has, yes they are comparable.

Really, tell us about how your inner lesbian has an epi-marker mistake.
No, you go ahead and explain how an epi-marker mistake creates homosexuals, and now a chimera AND a hermaphrodite.

Idiot.

Please explain to us what exactly is a "homosexual". Use the etiology definition of the two words homo and sexual. Okay, now using the same definition of homo, what is a homo sapien.
What also is a heterogeneous and heterogamous person? Are people who exhibit gay behaviors still both heterogeneous and heterogamous?
You see, I like you, and I want you to be freed of the lies that have entrapped you.
I think you need to find a gay person and ask them what they are afraid of.
Did you go to school?

Facing reality.

Accepting that homosexuality is a sexual disorder.

The fear that they cannot establish their own identity except by faking marriage.

You're the one who says you're 1/2 homosexual. Just want to know how you justify that it's okay (according to your logic and scientific beliefs) that 1/2 of you desires the same sex. Do you believe your homosexuality was created by or has an epi-marker mistake “your words”? If you don’t have an epi-marker mistake wouldn’t your inner woman desire men?

People have gotten wise to the fact that Wal-Mart is a Communist Chinese secret agent acting on behlf of China to brig down the USA..

Wal-Mart is running out of excuses,it keeps blaming disappointing results on things like delayed tax refunds, even though its rivals are doing better despite the same headwinds.

Legally, the state of California sanctioned it, the only person I asked permission of ( other than my wife ) was her father ( I am old fashioned that way ) He knew before she did.
It was a non-religious ceremony, quite nice, close family and friends and one heck of a honeymoon, we spent more on the honeymoon than the wedding.
Not sure I understand your question... if it is different than I am responding... seriously
Thanks Big D. You answered the question honestly and accurately. There in lies a dilemma. Does one need a sanctioning body, church and/or state in order to be married? Granted, from a legal standpoint, a marriage license is necessary, but beyond that, what else is there? Can a couple promise to "love, honor, and cherish each other", without a state official, and still considered themselves married? You've mentioned "big government" several times implying it is intrusive, and yet you sought state sanction for your relationship. Obviously you sought the sanction, permission, and/or blessing of "big government". I'm just curious as to why.

Personally I believe in one wife, but I don't trying and force people to live under my rules. If they are conscenting adults, thats their business. If it came to a vote, I'd be checking the for box.
"Fortuna"? Italian?

The gist of the issue is how do we, as a society, define marriage? There has to be "line in the sand" so to speak. Other wise what's the point of the state issuing a license?

You are partially correct.

It's not the other half of me, it's the other me.

And there is an additional mutation me. A chimera, hermaphrodite AND epi-marker mistake! With three nipples! What a monster!

See how easy it is to accept reality. No fear. I've done it, now you try.

<quoted text>He never said any such thing. Perhaps you have screwed up the words so bad that you do not know the definition.
If animals, which are not human, according to gays, can be homosexuals which would make them humans, then why can't a man be a lesbian simply because he is attracted to females. that would make him a straight homosexual or homosapien, homo means of or relating to humans.
Oh, I get it now. You're saying you are a lesbian. And I thought you were a home schooled gay men so afraid of his own homosexuality that he obsesses and hysterically rants incoherent blather. Thanks for clearing that up.

Not sure what reality you want me to face. I’ve researched your so-called epi-marker (you added the word mistake) condition and from what I’ve read it is all unproven theory. I can understand your desire to bring some clarity to your own unnatural state of being, but, I think that in your desperation for answers you have deluded yourself into believing that scientific theory is fact and it’s not. And to be honest being a genetic freak doesn’t make you an expert.

Honey, we already talked about me.

Look in the mirror, we are talking about you facing yourself. The things you are saying about homosexuality just don't make sense.

What are you afraid will happen if you admit it?
