She pieced together information taken from articles to come up with an opinion piece. It's the same as every high school student who has been assigned to write a term paper. Their work isn't "science". It's an argument (at best).
And once again, I am completely puzzled as to what the last paragraph you wrote means. "...notice how far we've gone from your claim that the essence of marriage was nonsensical."
What does that mean? Did I claim that marriage is nonsensical? Why am I here day after day arguing in favor of same-sex marriage if I think it's nonsensical?
YOU'RE the one who believes that the basic essence of marriage is to ensnare a man by a defenseless woman so that she can have a better chance to have her offspring cared for.
In your definition, men are a bunch of irresponsible, horny, jerks who MUST be tied to a woman via a legal contract so that he doesn't run off and impregnate half the state; leaving his families to fend for themselves.
Is that how you see your marriage?
To me, marriage is about love and commitment--monogamy--promisin g to be with one another for life regardless of what is thrown your way. It's about mutual respect. It's about attraction--physical and emotional.
That's my own personal definition of marriage.
But I'm realistic enough to understand that people get married for a variety of reasons.
You go right ahead and cling to your definition of marriage. My condolences to your wife...
Still gay twirling.

-A term paper is judged by the validity of it's content and references, not because it is a 'term paper'.

Please, what information was misused?

-You pretend ignorance again regarding the essence of marriage, first ignoring the qualifying term 'essence' feigning confusion, but then adding it in the very next sentence. Obvious immaturity foolishly attempting to cover the lack of a logical response.

-I've never limited marriage to mating behavior, hence the term 'essence'. In fact, you attempt to hitchhike classic elements of marriage with notable exceptions; Ignoring the anal violence, and the mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Stand a ss couple next to a married couple. Looks silly stupid pretending they are the same, doesn't it.

It was only a few days ago that one of you complained that I only made drive-by comments. There's just no pleasing such a bunch.

Well, at least you admitted your commitment to duncehood.

Oh, silly me, I didn't understand that Sunshine's inability to sit still is because she's hungry. She was salivating to the point of dehydration because of the corn!

Sunshine, I haven't yet had my coffee,(which happens to be a wonderful bowel stimulant). If you can hold on a little longer, I'll soon have your breakfast.

I don't have a partner, I have a husband. Because I'm married, just like all other married people. And whether or not we can mutually produce a child still remains completely irrelevant, but don't let that get in the way of your stupid posts dear.

That is totally your opinion. Procreation is still not a requirement of marriage. But don't let that stop you from posting dear. There is nothing like watching a fundamentalist spin in their webs of repetition hoping it somehow magically creates some truth that doesn't exist.

Information is misused when it is presented as "fact" when it is actually "theory". Just because someone presented a theory about "subject A" doesn't mean that you can write an opinion piece and cite "subject A" as a fact.

Maybe you don't understand the term "essence". Here are a couple of definitions for you. "Essence--The most important ingredient; the crucial element. The inherent, unchanging nature of a thing or class of things."

Most of your response to my comment is unintelligible. I continue to wonder if you have a drinking problem.

In your attempts to be clever or to make your responses seem more intelligent than they actually are, your message gets lost.

And about your final comment where you describe a same-sex couple standing next to a married couple as being "silly stupid" (where in the hell do you come up with these little phrases--preschool?)--that's just insulting.

Just who the heck do you think you are passing judgment on the lives of two people who put their lives together in a relationship?

I can go out right this minute and find umpteen examples of married heterosexual couples who have a shitty basis for their relationship. Then I can compare them to a same-sex couple who have created a responsible, loving, mutually respectful relationship.

You dismiss same-sex relationships. You believe people who are same-sex relationships trying to mimic opposite-sex relationships. We don't give a damn about other people's relationships. As with any other couple, we deal with our own relationships in the exact same way that you deal with yours.

Just because there may be two dicks or two vaginas involved doesn't mean that we don't know how to create lasting, quality relationships.

You continue to hold heterosexual relationship in high esteem, when the VAST majority of them will end in divorce. Domestic violence is rampant in them. Emotional or physical neglect is common. And the basis of many heterosexual relationships is greed or looks or unplanned pregnancy.

You need to take a good, long look at the state of heterosexual relationships before passing judgment on homosexual relationships.
