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.

Awwwww Dusty...you're no fun. First cousins perhaps. Now if same sex sexual relations are not taboo...would same sex siblings sexual relations really be that far off. No risk of conception.

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!
Good point.....Dusty, your response.

No. Realted adults are not permitted to marry, but you already knew that.
On what grounds might that be? And no, not the "they're already kin" dodge either.

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!

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.

That violates the 14th Amendment. Our rights should not depend on our genitals.
Oh really....you don't seem to complain for your rights when your genitals prevent u from marrying your brother, sister, mother, father, first cousin in some states? They don't matter then. What no genitsl reference in the constitution?
You are just a troll playing word games because you don't have any actual arguments against gay marriage.
You're a trollette...sounds like smurfette although she's much better looking. There's not one compelling argument for it. Not one compelling reason why marriage after thousands of years of human societal evolution, cross time and cross culturally, as a male female union, has to be redefined. How the heck in the name of God you say doesn't exist, did our society survive into the 21st century under the quaint notion of marriage as a union of husband and wife ORIENTATED around their sexual physical union, and the products of that union, children named Rosie?

Have men suddenly become pregnant? Women producing sperm? Should women demand urinals in the women's bathrooms to demonstrate equality to men? Men's bathrooms demand feminine pad dispensing vending machines?

Yeah, that's a good one! "You can't marry your sister because she's already kin".

Well so is my cousin but I can marry her and the sky won't fall. It won't fall if I marry my sister either.

P.S. Sis is HOT!

Not quite, Jizzy cannot effectively rig the votes that fast. Takes him a little time. It's a rather tedious process, and a very challenging one for an idiot like Jizzy!

Not to mention childishly silly. But that's our dopey Jizmbirdy58! He's an arrested development loser/idiot.

I have no idea
still that idea would work
every religion could define "marriage" for their own little private cult
and the government would only recognize the contract of a civil union, which is all the government needs, the legal contract.
One church could call marriage between only a man and a woman
Another church could do same sex marriages
and even Mormon boy could have his poly marriage and call it that
and all would be recognized equally by the law governing civil unions
and they could point fingers at each other all day long calling the other heathens and it would mean absolutely nothing.
The nice part about doing it that way is that even non-relationship unions could be done. 2 older women for example not in a sexual relationship, but close friends with no family could join in such a civil contract for mutual support.
Hmmmmmm....can't say that it doesn't have any merit.....perhaps the gov't could issue a "relationship coupon" good for one relationship of one's choice complete with gov't benefits. Kody uses his for wife number 1, she uses it for wife #2, who in turn uses it for wife #3. That would help the fundamentalist Mormons.

I don't think it'd fly though.. Let's just keep marriage as a conjugal union of husband and wife. But we'll use the civil union concept for non conjugal marital unions. Everybody wins. Thanks for the idea Big D.

Lawsuits idiot! Just like the Boy Scouts. Churches would have their tax exemption taken away if they discriminate against gays being married and sued.
