Exactly right, it is an argument to get people to say something that they can re-apply opposed to same sex marriage

It is an old tactic

If you remove gender diversity from marriage in the name of same sex marriage, to create a new standard of gender segregated marriage...

To make your government gender blind to mothers, sisters, daughters, fathers, brothers and sons;

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

Sure. Just like homosexuals have the same right to marry the opposite sex person of their choice that everyone else does.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

Tell it to the judge. Submit a friend of the court memo and tell him polygamy shouldn't be allowed because it's a red herring. And an old tactic.

Under what I just said, they would be 100% equal, as the government wouldn’t recognize heterosexual marriage either.
Brilliant plan dippy! Now sell it to everyone. I suggest you start with gay couples. Tell them that you are going to downgrade their marriages, but it's OK because you're going to do it to hetero couples too.

Your dumb plan demonstrates how little you know about the subject.

I don't make my argument based on sexual orientation, but on gender.

Exactly marriage is a union of both genders. The old tab A into slot B.
A man can marry a woman, so a woman should have that same right.
How can a woman be a husband to another woman. Something is missing.

How can a man be a wife to another man? Surgery perhaps.

Sorry, not going to play, because you're talking about related individuals. You're also aware of the "taboo" pertaining to incest and the resultant problems from swimming in too small a pool.

I was talking about two non-related consenting adults.

Game over.

Modern science has debunked the dangers of close relatives procreating. It's an old wives tale with some small insignificant basis in reality.

But it doesn't matter anyway because procreation is irrelevant to marriage, right? Right!

So I should be able to marry my sweet sister! Thank you. She is HOT! Hubba Hubba!

Here I come sis! Woo HOOO!
