According to Pew research, MSNBC is the number one most biased by far. And FOX is about average, like NBC and CBS et al.

But you refuse to accept reality when you don't like it. So be stupid and biased! See if we care.

You are not being honest.
-The point is not about feelings, it is about distortion.
-Where have I said being a mutation makes me less valid? Nor is the mutation my fault. It happens to make me distinct. And an incredible curiosity. I find that a positive extremely often.
-You can 'say' homosexuality has any reason for existence. Only some are true. See the difference?
-Ss couples cannot 'have' children. Do you see what your denial is trying to equate?
-Yes, the law is a part of reality. But no, if the law denies reality, reality doesn't change. The reality is, the law is simple wrong.
Do you feel a 'haunting' now?

And my point was you can't compare people in the same way as you would compare engineering equipment because they have feelings.
Homosexuality is not anybodys 'fault' either.
We all have a reason for existence else we wouldn't be here. Whether we are a mutation or not we are all a little unique in our own ways, just as we all have similarities too.
I know you didn't use the wording of 'less valid' but the word 'monster' is derogatory, which could imply negativity.
Yes, I find it positive too. Wouldn't want to not be a 'mutation'
I know SS couples can't 'have' children in the basic sense. No-one is denying biology. SS couples have surrogates, or whatever if they want children.
The law is not wrong simply because you don't agree with it. The law generally does what it sees fit to benefit the majority of people in society. As SSM does not have a direct or actual effect on opposite sex couples' marriages; and people want the option of SSM it has become law. SS couples with or without marriage will be together and some will be having (by indirect means) children. With or without SSM hetero couples will be doing the same as they are doing now, and have always done.
Why would I feel a 'haunting'? And no I don't, do you?
I listed point by point corrections to your statements.

Words have specific meaning for a reason. You seem to think that specificity is only necessary with things and not people. I disagree.

Just a note; The issue is not whether ss couples would harm marriage. The fundamental question is do they equate to marriage. The only aspect is in number. That means marriage would then mean 'two people in a committed relationship'. Restricting marriage to only two for that reason is discriminatory. Again, it leaves your mother and father, and your family without distinction. I find that sad.

Really?? You have both XX and XY chromosomes, yes?
Please explain, what the difference is here? The DNA of two people? means what? If it's not having both XX and XY then what is it?
Yes, sure it's a genetic mistake. I use the word 'mosaic' because that's the word used to describe having both XX and XY chromosomes. Both male and female. It's the same as having the DNA of two people, isn't it?
Ok, that explains the word 'monster', but I'm sure you can appreciate how the meaning may not be immediately apparent as 'large'
I'm in No denial and am fully aware my DNA, and the physical manifestations from it, are a 'mutation', a genetic mistake.

science/2368/chimeras_and_mosa ics.html

"Both mosaics and chimeras are individuals with two genetic≠ally distinct populations of cells. The difference between them is that in a mosaic the different types both arise from the same fertilised egg, whereas a chimera comes from more than one. In fact, in some cases a chimera is a pair of twins that has fused into a single person."

Welcome to today
What in hell does Fox News have to do with this?

You have no logical response, so you throw an idiotic slur against the most watched news channel? That's like double stupid!

Then you top it off by asserting there is no difference between a fruitful, diverse gendered couple and a duplicate, serile single gendered couple. That is beyond stupid.

You follow it with a bigoted slam against those who dedicate their lives to serving others and people of faith.

What a Big Dope.

Smile.

Ratings have nothing to do with journalistic ethics or credibility. Being "most watched" doesn't change the fact that Fox exists to promote far right propaganda, NOT facts and journalism.
What is stupid is the bigotry in thinking heterosexuals or straight couples are superior to gay couples. They are not.
