About This Blog
I argue for marriage equality. By that I mean that society and all local, state, federal, and international laws, institutions, and programs should recognize any marriage registered by any persons without restrictions on the basis of race, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or religion.

The global definition of marriage should be as follows: "The uniting of consenting individuals in a witnessed ceremony."

We believe everyone has the right to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any and all consenting adult(s) of their choice, regardless of birth or sexual orientation.

Just because the owners of Chick-fil-A's are backwards and live in a mental deficient world.
Staying away from locations like this and Papas Johns might be a good thing to do, it might be catching.
They have serious mental problem to over come, poverty will help them a lot. FpizzoS to you too!
Chik-fil-A? What's that? Chicken place? I'll have to try it tomorrow I've been hearing a lot about it lately.

1.) More ass obsession.
2.) There are gay Arabs--even gay Muslims.
3.) Re: Europe, I seem to remember a time in the American south when racists were outraged over racial integration and other equality laws.
1. I hate to see kids analized. You promote it.

2. Of course there are. You bet they keep it to themselves though.

3. Good point. Racists fought against integration in America. In Europe immigrants are fighting to impose their ways on the rest of the culture. The only 'equal' allowed is Islam. The Queen would be dethroned!

A lesbian is someone who is attracted to women only. That's why it's safe to assume that a lesbian would not want to have sex with a man.
A bisexual woman might be interested in marrying a man, if she developed a close, personal relationship with him.
I'm not sure why the "B" comes after "L" and "G". Not so long ago the community was referred to as "GLBT". But many believed that it was somewhat discriminatory to place the "G" before the "L". So, that's why you see it written this way.
I can't imagine a "mixed orientation marriage", although I know that they have occurred.
Many closeted gay people enter into marriages with someone of the opposite gender for a variety of reasons. Maybe they feel pressured by their family or community. Maybe they hope they'll change their attractions if they marry someone of the opposite gender.
There are those guys who marry a woman and then sneak out behind their wife's back to have sex with guys. I think it's referred to as being on the "down low".
And I'm sure there have been marriages between gay men and gay women--for show or to get insurance benefits or some other secondary gain.
Nevertheless, a mixed orientation marriage wouldn't likely be mutually satisfying.
I can't imagine being married to a woman. I've never been sexually attracted to women. And I think it would be a shitty thing to do to a woman--to marry her under false pretenses.
I'm confused by your logic again.

Why would a butch lesbian dress and act like a man to attract another lesbian???

What happened to your anti-poly schtick? You have toned it way down. Conscious get to you? See? Frankie is good for EQUALITY and anti-BIGOTRY.

I suppose you mean you won't lift a finger to support poly but all the while you'll continue to demand that we do for SSM.

When you want to make a tremendous social change like this, the burden is on you. Not us. Tell us why SSM is good, don't demand we tell you why it's not good. We're fine as it is. We don't have to do anything. You do.
I hope you understand this simple concept, but I doubt it.
Before you file hate crime charges and have a self righteous fit, I'm OK with SSM. I feel no need to tell you why. Same as people who are not OK with it should feel no need to tell you why.
Hope that helps!
Yeah, it helps. It helps me prove my point that nobody can come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.

I accept your forfeiture due to getting your silly ass handed to you. Kiss hubby and forget you lost badly. It's just a silly topix thread.

Declare victory and move on!
