What hasn't changed?

Ss couples are still only ever a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Clearly not the same.

Yes. We never did a better thing than to keep his kind away from our children, banned from our schools

Well your kind will never gain "true acceptance" until you try peddling something other than hate. That is why you are not allowed around children in our schools.

That is real

This is all you have left? Why bother?

I understand it's a method of "self comforting" for you to repeat these silly things, but it seems pointless to the rest of us.

I suggest learning to deal with reality. You will have a happier and healthier life.

See, endless repetition of something illogical. Perhaps you might choose to seek help for this. You certainly don't seem happy.

And I can tell you that no married couple, gay or straight, is going to worry one bit about your demands that they create children for your comfort and happiness.

That's usually a personal thing, and not required by marriage law.

In those states and countries where same-gender couples can marry, their marriages are EXACTLY the same as everyone else's.

So your definitions--"marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary behavior" and "same-sex couples are still only a mutually sterile pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage"--they simply don't apply.

I'm sure that galls you to no end. Either get on board or step aside.

So will marriage perhaps....

Sooooooo.....they're all comprised of husband and wife....all consumate their marriages through the first act of coitus....? Serious Big Red, for a man who claims to be a social worker....

Ahhhhh laddie....someone spiked the rainbow punch again.

On board what? The delegalization of marriage? Or how about the continued downward marriage rates both in the West, and world wide?

True, gays can marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, anywhere in these United States of America, and it is valid in any state. The can also divorce the same as can anyone else.

Girls, it is clear the unchangeable reality simply being susictly spoken deeply troubles you. That is the bitter truth of denial. Deep down you know everyone knows the fallacy of your pretended identity.

Especially children.
