You post a gay porn article for proof?
Post a scientific article of the study, and then see what it says without gay twirl.
Smirk.
This article cites a study by the Centers for Disease Control’s National Survey of Family Growth which indicates the prevalence of anal sex in heterosexual couples.

It's hardly a "porn article".

You just don't like the article because it doesn't provide enough lurid discussion about hot, sweaty man-on-man anal sex.

Both, because they are not being allowed to legally marry the adult unrelated consenting spouse of their choice, in the same way that ANY heterosexual can.
First, the law applies to ALL men and women, and its not based on self professed sexual identity labels. Second, first cousins, can marry, in some states. Lastly "to marry" has to have a definitional foundation to it, the one you provided is inadequate.
. And this discrimination is based ONLY on gender, and not on any valid or logical state interest.
The gender composition of the marital relationship provides the foundation for the compelling state interest. Remove either the wife, or the husband, replace her or him with a second person of the same gender, and the state interest is also removed.

Does that help you to understand?

And are indeed married and recognized at the state and federal level, just like same sex couples are married in a growing number of states and countries.

"Bugged" is the wrong word. "Amused" is better.
You might be amused to hear that same sex marriage is legally recognized on the state and federal level in a growing number of states, just like the people that mention marriages to first cousins are legally married in some states while somehow being opposed to same sex marriage.

I like it when they make our point for us.

It's only baseball.

Abreu is the fourth Cuban player to defect in the past two months, adding to the departures of first baseman Yozzen Cuesta, and pitchers Misael Siveiro and Odrisamer Despaigne.

Cuban defectors Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig have recently signed multimillion dollar contracts to play in MLB.

I love baseball what about you?

What could cause an individual ( Rankin ) to behave and act out in an irritational and paranoid manner although he claims to know what he talking about but have no proof to support his libelous and slanderous lies? Answer RANKIN thugs and please do not answer in your usual paranoid style. Give us insight on your lack of intellect.

Same rhetoric from the RANKIN THUGS that you all are to be expected.
Drugs have long lasting side effects.

I think what you'll find in the next decade or so will be a diagnosis for bigots and homophobes. I mean think about it... A person who tries to make other people's sexual attraction their business. That has pathology written all over it.
I'm not sure what they'll call it--maybe something like "naziosis". Or perhaps they'll name if after you.
Fingers crossed!
The THEORY of epigenetics will likely not come to pass. One of the links you provided to the epigenetics THEORY indicated that determining it to be a fact will be near impossible. And even if they do determine that epigenetics play a role in orientation, there is no indication that there SHOULD be a "cure" or WILL be a "cure" as a result.
I think your epigenetics THEORY will turn around and bite people like you on the ass. Homosexuality will be seen as normal--a naturally occurring event that epigenetics explains.
You know nothing about homosexuality, with the exception of men's asses. And you certainly have shown yourself to know nothing about gender identity.
I doubt that will happen, unless they vote Big D into office.

Non issue. We are guaranteed equal protection under the law, that equal protection doesn't have to serve a state interest.
Please take notes, the rational argument for gay marriage is that men and women should have equal protection under the law.
Men and women DO have equal protection under the law. They are both entitled to the protections provided for marriages involving 1 of each gender, so you haven't produced any rational argument to change the definition of marriage. Your argument is a non-issue.

That is correct. No-one has. They are merely exploiting loopholes, in order to gain $$.

How naive you are. Ask your sisters about straight men wanting anal sex.
Anyway, it's a non issue.
The particular sex acts we engage in are not the government's business.
No. They're not. So, the government has no business legislating it into validity.
