Your ridiculous belief that polygamy is not an equal rights issue makes you a bigot and a hypocrite. Not to mention stupid and arrogant. But that's not news.
Equal???????? Still struggling with the concept of basic arithmetic, I see. Incorrigible and unteachable.

No, I am like you. A person expressing his opinions.
And my opinions are as valid as yours. And no one is laughing or snickering at them anymore than they are laughing and snickering at yours.
What makes you think your opinions are valid? Because they are YOURS? That isn't what determines validity, fool.

I can see no compelling reasons not to allow SSM. Heterosexuals are not interested in a same sex marriage just as homosexuals are not interested in an opposite sex marriage. So it IS a special right. Just as opposite sex marriage is now.
I support SSM but there are legitimate arguments against it and to marginalize and disrespect fellow Americans like you do over their wariness of this huge social change is despicable. And to simply dismiss legitimate (although not compelling) arguments by claiming you haven't heard them is arrogant, dishonest and stupid.
You want this radical social change, the burden is on you, not us. We're fine as it is. Tell us why SSM should be allowed, don't insist we tell you why it shouldn't be allowed.
I doubt you understand all this being you are very angry and stupid. But others will.
Sorry. Your arguments are neither legitimate nor compelling. They are simple and naÔve.

They like big government, the kind that gets into your bedroom and gets into our womenís reproductive systems and tells you what you can and cannot do.
They want to tell everyone else what they can and cannot do.
Anal Sex is like spinach
A lot of people enjoy spinach
But if someone is forced to have it when they are young, they have a more difficult time enjoying it when they are older.:P
And you like the kind of government that tells you who you can and cannot marry.

And you and Big D aren't who determines validity, fool.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage. That is my VALID opinion, your opinion seems too be only that my opinions are not valid.

You have no valid argument against poly marriage. You have no valid arguments period.

No I researched the numbers. You can too. Please do, if you are not too ignorant to accomplish that simple task.

But you'd rather shoot from the hip and call me stupid as a response. And then say your opinions are valid and mine are not.

Right. If you weren't so stupid and biased you'd notice I said that most arguments against SSM were not compelling. But they are legitimate. Such as if we redefine marriage to mean everything, everyone will be married and it will mean nothing.

Let me predict your response to my legitimate argument- "You are stupid and naive". Why bother? Because you want to vent your anger.

<quoted text>Frank, why do you care about how, when and why gay men have sex? Is that really the topic at hand?
I don't. Sex is fun and healthy with whatever consenting adult(s) you like. You are the only one here struggling with any shame associated with homosex.

Like I said. You have no sense of humor. And absolutely no basis to say I am obsessed with sex. In other words, you are an unfunny liar.

What's a "gerbal" and why do you bring it up? What do "gerbals" have to do with marriage equality?

Gerbils are the subject of other forums, the ones for fun and joking, perhaps you are lost. This is a thread about the judge overturns the ban on SSM.

Polygamy is off topic but "gerbals" are not?
