Can't back up the claim of bigoted twirl?

Nor will you be able to back up the assertion that I 'stole' the words.

Please, provide proof.

Oh please, enlighten me about the real world.
How does a ss couple 'hit all of those'?????
Snicker.
Only when you can show that it is legally mandated that YOUR personal description of marriage MUST include all of YOUR factors, then we can talk.

But you know as well as I do that no such set of laws exists.

As has been pointed out to you repeatedly, you narcissistic turd, you don't get to set the standard for marriage for the rest of humanity.

Does it ever occur to you the hubris it takes for one person to attempt to define marriage for every couple on the planet? No one else in this discussion has ever tried to mandate that certain factors MUST be in place before a couple can take their relationship to the next level of marriage. Only someone with SERIOUS pathology would attempt to do this. Not even our government is this intrusive. I don't even think most ministers insist that a couple meet such strict guidelines before they agree to marry them.

You are unique. And not in a good way...

You need to seriously take a look at yourself and try to determine exactly what it is that makes you believe that you know what is best for everyone else.

But here's the bottom line (and I know how much you like bottoms)... You are one person out of billions of people on the planet. You are rude, obnoxious, and opinionated. You WISH you had the power to enforce your standards on everyone else, but you don't. All you get to do is sit around and watch the world change. There is nothing you can do to stop it. The momentum is in our favor. And all of your poems, canned comments, smirking, etc. can't do anything to stop it.

Sucks to be you...

<quoted text>
Why does a ss couple have to?????? Oh, that's right, they don't.
Snicker.
Up your meds kuntmare.
Honey, calm down.

No one said anything about a 'requirement'

I simply noted irrefutable distinctions between marriage and ss couples such as your partner and you.

All you have is gay twirl and ad homoan attacks.

Yes?

Well, the other explanation is that you're just a dick. That's another possibility.

LOL all of it moron. Mars and Venus? Mary please. Marriage is no longer 'only' between 2 genders and what about 'poly'? Going to set off your little friend Frankie on that one. You disgusting troll, it is you that's in denial. Your going to tell me that those 15 minute Las Vegas marriages are strength and nurture delicately balanced? what a crock of sh*t and twirl. Sounds like you're the one with a stretched sphincter because the unstoppable bullsh*t is falling out all over you. POS
Mikey honey,

If you are going to validate your assertion, you can't shift the issue to another person's points, or point out the exceptions.

I pointed out the time-honored essence of marriage, fulfilled by the vast majority of couples who make the vow. It also exposes the absolute inability of ss couples to equate.

Clearly may be able to mount an a//, but you certainly can't kick this old a//.

Smirk.

What a lovely sentiment. It's also an incredible load of crap.
It states no verifiable facts, only saccharine feelings.
--"A miraculous union of two genders"--Obviously a union can involve two men or two women. The statistics I found indicate that there are about 770,000 same-sex couples in the U.S.
Also, there's nothing miraculous about the union of two genders. Billions of people do it each year. A miracle is a rare event. It is "a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature."
So, if you want to split hairs, same-sex relationships are much more rare than opposite-sex relationships. One could argue that same-sex relationships are more of a miracle than opposite-sex relationships.
--"A unions so profound it is described as the union of Mars and Venus."--Venus is the Roman goddess of love. Mars is the Roman god of war. Sounds like a hellish relationship to me.
In Roman mythology, Venus and Mars do not marry. In fact, Venus is married to Vulcan. But Venus and Mars have an affair. They end up hav... e god". You don't get to impose your beliefs or standards on anyone but you and your wife (God love her soul). Thirdly, you continue to make this into some kind of a competition--claiming that heterosexual marriages are MORE real, MORE loving, MORE unique, MORE, MORE, MORE... And that's just a bunch of childish bullshit. Heterosexual marriages are different than homosexual marriages only because of the gender composition. Both can and do have families. Both are based on love. This isn't a race, Kim. Only YOU have made it into one. It makes you pathetic and small.
Finally, you try to rise to the occasion. Too bad you come off as a limp dick once again...

1.'No verifiable facts'? Then what did you respond to? Which of any single one of those statements is a common understanding about marriage?

2. Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus sold over 500 million copies. The analogy was not new to them. Perhaps a unmarried gay is why you have trouble understanding the analogy???

There are 770,000 duplicate gendered halves of marriage in the US. Uranus and Uranus, not united, but colliding.

3. A marriage not only reunites us to the very roots of earliest life, it provides the best (never said the only) setting in the present for the future of every single society. No other relationship holds that distinction. You discount and disconnect that? Your solution is 'one night stands'??? DAmn you are gay...

4. The blend of masculinity and femininity is the same as a duplicate half? I sure hope you don't give out medicine for your 'profession'! Oh, and don't join a debate team, that'd be pure embarrassing.

5. "The wisdom of logic and intuition united. Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced. Protection and nurture combined as one."--Now this is just a bunch of sexist bullshit."

In other words, you have no rational argument. And yes, it is sexist. That was the point. And the difference.

6. "A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders."--whatever"

But you are doubling down on stupid to equate to 'whatever'???

That makes sense to you???

Finally;

If you want 'equal' rights, yes, you do have to equate.

Second, I didn't throw out any 'rules'. Where in the hell did you pull that from? Those are simple facts.

Third, again, where did 'more' come from? I listed pure distinctions. Things that ss couples are not even in competition for.

This isn't a race, VV. Only YOU have made it into one. It makes you pathetic and small.
