Your second question you should answer. Why does it matter it I marry another man?
First, in order for u to marry another man legally, the state must redefine marriage from a legally recognized union of husband AND wife, to a two person non gender specific spouses for life union.

Second, there's no compelling reason to redefine marriage so that a man can marry another man, or a woman another woman. None. There's no issue that needs addressing. Why does society, in the 21st century need men/women to marry other men/women?

5.) If you want to take religion out of the argument, that's fine with me. I will only point out that the Supreme Court has claimed 14 times since 1888 that marriage is a fundamental right of citizens. Same gender couples will build on those findings in order to argue for marriage equality.
Will u also point out what the Supreme Court meant by the term "marriage", the legal, historic, cultural, and/religious understand of that term as a union of husband and wife? Build on what things?

Prior to it being a "gay disease", it was a disease of colonies in African nations. Scientists have found evidence that HIV/AIDS might have been running rampant as far back as the 1930s. Since so many people were butchering meat from apes, it is believed to have leapt from them to man. And since so many people died in those remote areas of "unknown origin", nobody really took notice. However, a blood sample was preserved from 1939. HIV was found in it. The disease then likely went to Haiti (HIV was found in blood samples collected in 1966) before it first arrived in 1968 in America. It wasn't until 12 years later that "patient zero" was identified in the U.S.
It cannot be known how many people actually died of the disease prior to it being fully studied in the U.S. in the 1980s. But I'm guessing that from 1939 to 1980 there were many.
Sometimes it helps to do a little research before making erroneous and misleading comments.
Context sweetie, context.

The context was the 70's and 80's, not the 30's.

No need to get your panties in a wad. No one slandered you. I believe I said "accused"; not that you were convicted of anything. So, factually, I was correct. You were "accused".
And I didn't mention any names. Handing out this man's name will now allow others to look into what he has said about you. And when they do, you'll have no one to blame but yourself.
Doesn't change the distortion you knowingly engaged in.

Topping it off by the hypocrisy of judging me for identifying the accuser after accusing me.

You keep exposing your depravity VV.

How's that make you feel?

<quoted text>No, silly, if you refer the illustrated page, in the Anatomy chapter, in Biology 101, you'll note that men and women were developed differently, with complementary organs that, if used properly, result in new people, and that gays are misusing their equipment, and that this misuse is not to be considered any sort of grounds upon which to base a marriage. Got it yet? Good. If you don't, ask your mommy or daddy, they will be mortified at your confusion, yet happy to straighten you out.
So once again we are back to the marriage is all about sex? Which is it you keep going round and round. Is marriage about some religious sanctity or is it about sex. Stop flip flopping you sound like a politician.

Your parent must be so proud of you . To think your significant contribution as a human has been to add a few dead babies to the landfill and sell your body as a commodity. Add smoking, drinking, and drugs to that mix and I bet your a real prize to look at or spend time with.

So discuss then. Why does society need men to marry other men/women to marry other women? What is this compelling urge?

Why does "marriage" exist in the first place? Why did it develop throughout time and place as virtually an exclusive relationship of either one man/husband one wife, or one man many wives?

Just ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, please. Thank you.

It is an attempt to establish what is otherwise unhealthy and abnormal sexual impulses as normal and equal to those of what God intended to be between a man and a women. I know you know that though.
