Prison rape could be eliminated if the rapists were castrated.

<quoted text>There are forced male/female marriages now; same sex marriage wouldn't help or stop that problem. It could only add to the victims, create more harm from the evildoers.
If you love good, diversity, integration and union but hate evil, segregation and harm; keep marriage one man and one woman.
Has anyone ever told you that you're kind of goofy? Forced marriages? WTF?

No stupid, prison rape is mainly homosexual. Homosexual sex is about sadomaschism and dominance, so if gay marriage was allowed in prison, with a submissive partner, it would only give them more of an excuse. And in california it is now legal for a someone to rape their spouse, so they would dismiss it. And no one cares for prison rape in the law system unfortunately anyway.

That's my kiimare's M.O. He likes to pretend that his opinions are facts. You're the most recent in a very long line of people who have discounted kimare.

Gender segregated institutions would be forced to deal with same sex marriage among staff and inmates; consider the consequences. We already have too much prison rape; same sex marriage could bring much worse; forced prison marriage. In our prisons, regulations control behavior. Those rules were created to keep sex out of prisons by gender segregating inmates.

Consent is problematic, at best, among the imprisoned and institutionalized. Not all marriage is based on love, people marry for economic and social advantage too. Don't bring more harm than good, out of legitimate sympathy for gay couples. Use your head, not your heart or random other parts...

Then imagine how same sex marriage might change power dynamics in a witches coven, if you can get your mind away from thinking of lesbian sex. Same sex marriage would change society in a big way; convents and covens used to be refuges from sex and marriage but gender segregation marriage brings that issue home.

Not all lesbians favor redefining marriage; some like it the old fashioned way, the way it was for their mom and dad.

P.S. I don't judge other people's hearts, just their words and actions.
