well guess what its never going to happen notradouchas! There will be controversy on this topic until the end of time! Well maybe not the end of time. Until everybody who has their head screwed on straight die off. I hope with this legal gay marriage it doesn't pollute the minds of our children. If that happens than there will be no hope for man kind!

1.) Not even worth addressing
2.) "Boy Toy" is a term given to a younger man (not a child or minor) who is with someone much older.
And let me ask you a question... If gay sex with a minor is "homosexuality", then what is heterosexual sex with a minor considered? Would it be heterosexuality or just pedophilia?
If a gay man engages in sexual intercourse, coitus, with a lesbian, could it be considered "gay sex"?

The discussion flops around and gets twisted into a bunch of different topics! Now go find something else to do because you are a bore!
"Off topic" is code for "You're winning this argument.".

Google it. States that allow gay marriage. You will get a lot of results and proof. Stop being in denial .
Denial of what? Why marriage exists in the first place? Why it developed as a male female, either monogamous or polygamous, relationship? Why SSM is virtually a modern Western creation?

No dinner with Jizzy for me.(Like he'd invite me!).

I heard Jizzybird ("just the facts") is a real slob. Picking food off other people's plates, yelling, drinking too much, chewing with his big yap open, burping and passing wind in the restaurant.

He throws chicken bones over his shoulder when he's done gnawing on a piece. Then he says "Cool Beans! Get a whiff of this!" and rips one off.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay#section_1

The word had started to acquire associations of immorality by 1637[1] and was used in the late 17th century with the meaning "addicted to pleasures and dissipations."[9] This was by extension from the primary meaning of "carefree": implying "uninhibited by moral constraints." A gay woman was a prostitute, a gay man a womanizer and a gay house a brothel.[1]

The use of gay to mean "homosexual" was in origin merely an extension of the word's sexualised connotation of "carefree and uninhibited", which implied a willingness to disregard conventional or respectable sexual mores. Such usage is documented as early as the 1920s, and there is evidence for it before the 20th century,[1] although it was initially more commonly used to imply heterosexually unconstrained lifestyles, as in the once-common phrase "gay Lothario",[10] or in the title of the book and film The Gay Falcon (1941), which concerns a womanizing detective whose first name is "Gay." Similarly, Gilbert and MacDermott's music hall song of the 1880s, "Charlie Dilke Upset the Milk" - "Master Dilke upset the milk/When taking it home to Chelsea;/ The papers say that Charlie's gay/Rather a wilful wag!" - referred to Sir Charles Dilke's alleged heterosexual impropriety.[11] Well into the mid 20th century a middle-aged bachelor could be described as "gay", indicating that he was unattached and therefore free, without any implication of homosexuality. This usage could apply to women too. The British comic strip Jane was first published in the 1930s and described the adventures of Jane Gay. Far from implying homosexuality, it referred to her free-wheeling lifestyle with plenty of boyfriends (while also punning on Lady Jane Grey).

A passage from Gertrude Stein's Miss Furr & Miss Skeene (1922) is possibly the first traceable published use of the word to refer to a homosexual relationship. According to Linda Wagner-Martin (Favored Strangers: Gertrude Stein and her Family (1995)) the portrait, "featured the sly repetition of the word gay, used with sexual intent for one of the first times in linguistic history," and Edmund Wilson (1951, quoted by James Mellow in Charmed Circle (1974)) agreed.[12] For example:

They were ...gay, they learned little things that are things in being gay,†... they were quite regularly gay.
óGertrude Stein,†1922

If anyone on here is still ignorant enough to think being gay is a choice try this. Choose to be gay for a while you will see that you can't. You should be able to if its as simple and choosing to turn right or left at a stop sign. Go ahead choose to be gay for a week. This will prove to all of you that it's not a choice.
