LOL. Should your rights depend on whether you have male of female genes? You have both, so should you be able to marry either sex? Neither, because you have both sets already?
Where've you been anyway? On other threads, telling posters to give their kids pearl necklaces?

I remember when Rose_NoHo was the queen of this thread. She could blather no wrong. If she posted "that's a red fish!" or "you're a straw man!" her fans would marvel at her intelligence and wit.

Those days are long gone. She looks real silly now.

She just doesn't get it that it's not our place to tell her why not, it's her place to tell us why.

Yes, I remember the glassy-eyed "It's a non-issue" and the "Rose Law" BS, as if that settled anything. LOL And I remember the Lucky Charms it would get, for posting anything, at all.

Your going to have to slow up Frankie, we are out of Hankies, the laughing madness has stuck every time you open up with one of your flaming jokes.

And, all of the "We're all the same" rhetoric that dismissed the concept of gender identity. And all of the "shining on" of the questions that it was asked, like: "If you think that 2 women should be able to marry, why can't a man marry one of those 2 women, after all, we all have the same rights, don't we?"
Ah, those were the days...

Empty words... Prove it.

You know that there is a difference between a person who voluntarily wishes to change gender in order to satisfy him/herself and a person who is forced to change orientation in order to satisfy society.

Only someone with a serous pathology would insist that another person change their orientation against their will--so that others would be satisfied.

There is a saying that might help you to understand the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation. Sexual orientation indicates WHO YOU WANT TO GO TO BED WTIH. Gender identity is WHO YOU WANT TO GO TO BED AS.

And you don't force either.

You would NEVER force a boy to grow up as a girl. And you would NEVER force a gay (or straight) person to change who they are attracted to.

I hope this lesson helps you to not embarrass yourself in the future.

IOW, even if I don't post for months, you can't get me out of your mind.
So, are you admitting there is no rational argument against gay marriage? That's reason enough to allow it.

Then why can't I marry my sister? Or both of them?(I can never choose which one is hotter! They are both SMOKIN' HOT).
