Kody and his wives are not really advocating marriage equality, they're just faking it to try and trick Rose_NoHo!

Too Funny!

That's on you. We naturally reject ersatz gender equality. Women in combat units is a sick joke!

Really.
Please justify the discrimination of allowing homosexuals to room together in the military, but disallowing heterosexuals to do the same.
Please justify the discrimination of lowering the physical standards in the military so women can qualify for combat.
You are denial disguised as an idiot.
Smirk.
More wisdom from the forum halfwit. Brian wanders all over the place with his wit and never makes sense. Now we've got you bringing in the military standards. We're talking about access to marriage.

Can you,BTW, show proof of the housing rules allowing gays to room together but not straights?

Traditionally men quarter with men and women with women regardless of sexual orientation in the US military.

When I was in Vietnam, I served side by side with one of the bravest men I ever met. He happened to be gay. We slept in the same compartment aboard ship. This was in the days when if someone was suspected of being gay, he disappeared. Discharged and gone and no one hardly even asked why. Many of us knew. No one said a word about it.

Barring gays from the military was always just plain stupid if you ask me. We need all the help we can get and so what if he's secretly eyeballing your willy! At least someone wants you!

Why do you play games? Nobody gives a crap about that. The only issue is the legal recognition of gay marriages. You know that, why play games? Oh, yeah, games are all you got.

That means you're against gay marriage.
You are against equal rights.

They already have marriage equality. Whoever they are, they are treated equally when it comes to marriage.

OMG! Does it ever say anything intelligent?
How intelligent is it for government to decide husbands and fathers are disposable and marriage can be gender segregated without harming diversity and integration? What's the point of forcing government to become gender blind and refuse to distinguish between brother and sister, mother and father or husband and wife? Same sex marriage is unintelligent.

Your one experience overrules all other situations?

Do you know the rape/abuse issues that have arisen since women have moved into more positions?

Do you know about the unwanted 'pillow fights' a gay Congressman conducted in the Navy?

I made no assertion anyone was not brave.

I pointed out the discrimination of orientation segregation for heterosexuals. That is simply a fact.

I pointed out the issue of sexual behavior risking military competency. That is simply a fact.

I pointed out that standards were lowered/ignored to satisfy politically 'correct' stupidity.

Thank you for your service.

Gender segregation marriage can harm man/woman relations by introducing a new standard of gender prejudice in marriage.

Down with disunion and separatism. Marriage isn't for everyone, same sex couples have more in common with singles than with married husband and wife.

Do you really not understand that I can say the same STUPID thing about same sex marriage?

Homosexuals already are treated equally when it comes to marriage, they can marry the one opposite sex partner of their choice JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.

What possible objection do you have to three women marrying? Why is it your business and why do you want it illegal?

I don't like the government using the military for social experiments I'll agree with you there, it's not the place for it.

But I have no objection at all to homosexuals serving openly in the military. In my experience they make fine soldiers, airmen and sailors.
