What remains is your irrelevance and dishonesty. You've posted great loads of opinion you've claimed to be fact. Leaning on these two as proof of your "facts" is quite laughable. You will also, without doubt, stick with your schtick about being a chimera, a mutation, and a man trapped in a woman's body. All sensational lies in an effort to make yourself appear to be something you are not. Pretty sad, ain't it?
So you are saying,

-Ss couples are not duplicates of one gender?

-Ss couples are mutually capable of procreation?

Oh, and you have medical proof of my condition?

You are the sad one, and you are not void of hate.

Smile.

When Proposition 8 passed in CA, over 10,000 people raced to San Francisco's City Hall so that we could stomp our feet in unison. We continued to stomp our feet and challenged the new policy legally and politically until it came before Judge Walker. He and the three person appellate court ruled that the proposition was--say it with me "UNCONSTITUTIONAL"!
Do you have some kind of keen insight that these people and all of their associates do not have?
My guess is that you're just another schlub with anger issues.
You get on here and try to pick fights. I'm not interested.
I state my case and my beliefs.
If you don't want to respond to them, I am happy to be ignored by the likes of you.
If you want to feel superior, then by all means do so.
This is a forum where ideas and beliefs are discussed.
If you want to run it like it's your own personal playpen, I've got news for you; it's not going to happen.
Go create your own topic. I'm sure you'll find all sorts of people who would LOVE to get into these procedural arguments with you.
Until you don the black dress and bang a gavel in a real courtroom, your opinion is worth about as much as mine.
Damn, I'm embarrassed for you VV!

Remember the gay tree in the forest?

Smile.

Oh, KiMare
Society evolves else we'd be forever stuck in the dark ages. There was a time in early marriage legality when the wife was not considered a person, she was part of 'chattal', belongings. If marriage is only a 'cross-cultural constraint of mating behaviour' then no couple would be allowed to marry knowing that one or both of them are infertile. Taken to the extreme reductions which you imply then you yourself would not be allowed to have married, as genetically you're not singularly male; and from a psychological point how do you justify you yourself having kids when you can not give them an entirely male role model?
Marriage is gestaltian ie. it is more than the sum of its' parts. Yes it has traditionally served the function of procreation but reality (that thing you think you're so fond of) is it is more than that. Nowadays plenty of couples have children before they marry, it's quite common to have the kids at the wedding as flower bearers.
Stopping gay couples from marrying is not going to stop homosexuality and neither is it going to stop them having (biological surrogates or adoption) having children; any more than it stops single people having children if they want.
Think about it, you're obviously legally male or else you wouldn't have been able to marry your wife. What if with a slight differentiation you had been registered female. Assuming you married out of love, then you would be left wanting a SSM. Changing marriage to define two people instead of man and woman would avoid this problem, not only for gays/lesbians but for transgenders/intersexed too.

#1 you may think you are a duplicate of every other man, but you are no duplicate of me that is for sure, I actually use my brain

#2 procreation in either intent or ability has never ever been a requirement for a marriage lincence

do you have any other points you need squashed so easily?

OK. I see an honest person trying to support marriage equality but shouted down cries of "off topic!" by jackasses such as yourself.
What possible harm would a loving marriage of three adult consenting men cause you Jizzy? Or a marriage of two sisters?
The bottom line is I support marriage equality and you do not. So climb down off your high jackass, jackass.
You, an honest person? hahahahahahaha

It would be an excercise in futility to debate the Constitutionality of something woth someone who self admittedly is ignorant of the subject matter.

That is up to the Supreme Court and has been since 1803 :)

The funny part is it is the opponents of Same Sex marriage the pushed the issue to the supreme courts, as all courts that have reviewed the case below them have already ruled that Prop 8 should fall.

The unequal treatment of same sex couples will end

Only 2 ways to do that

Nullify the 18,000 legally married same sex couples that now already exist and are recognized in California ( not going to happen, can you imagine the lawsuits if they did that )

Or uphold the overturn of Prop 8 as the lower courts have already done, making all same sex couples equal in the state of California

Your opponents are expecting the latter... and they should, it is the obvious solution to the issue.

When your crazy and have been brain-washed by a religion for hundreds of years this is what you get, an oppressed female being told by her slave master's to lie, cheat and steal for Allah.

The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects insisted (screamed) that her sons are not responsible for the attack and said she did not see any aggression in the older brother, even when the FBI questioned him two years ago.
