You mean like these 'troll-posts':
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.
Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.
Ss couples will only ever be a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage.
ss marriage is an oxymoron.
A troll is someone who attacks the messenger rather than the message. Something both VV and you just did.
Smile.
Oh you silly troll. Practicing your copy paste skills again, I see. How many thousands of times have you posted those same exact sentences, as if that will make them mean something? Silly old man.

Oh, now..
You cannot be serious...
"Social science (and basic common sense) defines marriage as a legal union that meets the needs of two people."...pshaw. You may be able to quibble about definitions, splitting hairs. SOCIETY defines marriage as the bond between man and woman. Simple, no need to dissect and cherrypick.
Marriage isn't defined SOLELY as a bond between man and woman. In 13 states and in 16 countries around the globe, marriage is also defined as a LEGAL bond between same-gender couples.

I know it kills you each time somebody points that out to you.

Oh... By the way... I never did get an answer as to why you were forced to change your name.

Would you care to elaborate?

I want you to pay attention to the differences between the following two sentences:
--"Marriage is a cross cultural constrain on evolutionary mating behavior."
--"Marriage MIGHT BE a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior, according to a theory put forth by David Buss and David Schmitt."
--"Marriages have been used by many as a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior--according to a theory. However, since not all marriages involve mating behavior, one CANNOT conclude that marriage IS ALWAYS defined in this manner."
----------
Now, I know you're a little slow. And I know just how much you're "married" (get it?) to your little definition of marriage. But even someone as witless as you should be able to see how incorrect you are.
If you read the article in its entirety, you will see that your definition applies only to "relationships" and not necessarily "marriage".
I'm sorry my response to your comment was so lengthy. In the future I will try to remember your short attention span and create my responses by way of "sock-puppet theater", which I will then upload to YouTube.
Let me help you;

"Mating is a human universal."

"All known societies have formal marriage alliances between MEN AND WOMEN (emphasis added)."

"More than 90% of all people in all societies marry at some point in their lives."

"In a cross cultural perspective, marriages are usually regarded as formal reproductive alliances (NOTE THE TIE-IN WITH CHILD BIRTH) that contain the features of (a) mutual obligation between husband and wife (NOTE THE GENDER DIVERSITY)(b) rights of sexual access (c) an expectation that marriage will persist through pregnancy, lactation, and child rearing and (d), and recognition of the legitimate status of the couple's children."

There is no 'theory' involved. There is simply a social science identified commonality that encompasses nearly all cross-cultural marriages. The rest of the article addresses their theory.

Face it queen, that single paragraph destroys virtually every claim gay twirl trolls like you make.

Hardly. A legitimate exposure of someone deliberately depriving a child of their mother. You call that 'ad hominem'???

It is simply stupid to call a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage, marriage.

Clearly not the same.

Yawn. These are your unfounded opinions. Nothing more. What's illegal elsewhere or elsewhen is completely irrelevant. But don't let facts get in the way of your obsession over anal sex.

and is a major part of how AIDS originated in our country and spread.
Oh, now your going to try AIDS as your talking point. Got it. Yawn. AIDS originated in Africa at the turn of the century. It spread predominately through heterosexual sex and from mother to child for over 60 years before it ever entered the United States and the gay community. Since no one knew it existed, it was spread rapidly through the gay male community, mostly because males tend to have more recreational sex then women, especially in the 70s free love period. Your desire to blame victims for the spread of a disease they didn't know they had is repugnant.

And for the record, if it weren't for the fact that it did become predominant within the gay community, it would have taken decades longer to connect all the various opportunistic infections to each other and a common cause, so our ability to identify HIV as early as we did is in huge part due to the suffering of the early gay carriers. In addition, ALL the major organizations that exist today as related to AIDS prevention, AIDS care, and AIDS assistance were created by the gay community. So make sure to thank them for all the money they saved you in the long run.

THAT IS STILL COSTING ALL OF US IN MANY WAYS.
Was capitalizing it supposed to make us feel that you are suffering personally? Lot's of diseases cost us. Lots of unwanted pregnancies cost us. Lot's of things cost us. Get over it. The vast majority of people on this planet carrying HIV are straight people. And AIDS has absolutely nothing to due with marriage.
