Your argument is that abortion justifies deadly inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning anal sex?
What about outlawing them both as barbaric uncivilized behavior???
Duh...
Anal sex involves consenting adults. Abortion involves a fetus that has no say in the matter. I would think even a great moron such as yourself could see that.

But in the end?
A ss couple will only ever be a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.
You can't do a damn thing to change it.
Smirk.
We don't care to change it. We like being duplicate-gendered couples. We aren't sterile in the true sense of the word, but I get your point. We tend to have fewer children in our homes compared to heterosexuals.

That doesn't bother me. Why does it bother you so much? Why do you care if two men or two women decide to get together and become married?

There have been thousands (tens of thousands?) of gay marriages over the past decade or so. And I see that you're still married. You're capable of getting on here and rant. So gay marriages have had no impact on your life.

Unless... Did your son get married to a man? Is he looking to get married to a guy? Is he dating one?

Maybe that's why you're so bothered by all of this.

By that reasoning any number of relationships could be designated "marriage". Why only same sex?

You still attempted to justify one harmful act by citing a worse. Childish and idiotic.

Now you want to excuse a harmful act because consenting adults do it.
it.

Oh, and then not discuss how foolish it is to equate with the intimacy of marriage!

The depraved moron is you.

Anal sex is an act that has risks just as driving. And let's not forget that vaginal sex has risks too. So many women and women transmit HPV back and forth--even in marriage.

The CDC says that "HPV is so common that nearly all sexually-active men and women get it at some point in their lives. This is true even for people who only have sex with one person in their lifetime".

As you're aware, HPV can cause any number of issues, including cancer. WebMD reports "...virtually all cervical cancers -- more than 99%-- are caused by these high-risk HPV viruses". The American Cancer Society predicts that about 12,170 women will find out they have cervical cancer in the U.S. this year.

There's only one sure way to eliminate any chance of HPV infection: Avoid all genital contact with another person. Should we outlaw heterosexual vaginal sex?

Because only same-sex partners have sought legal marriage to date.

By the way, people have posted information to you to disprove what you write......all folks like you do is call it corrupt!!!
We will see what happens over by 2016...it seems that your supposed 10 states are all suspect.

By the way people have posted information to you to disprove that you write and you choose to blindly ignore all fact....all gays like you do is call it bias!!! When you gays get even one state constitution to include same same sex marriage then we will take note.

I see you are on of those gays who hate the elephant in the room, HIV. 80% of people with gays are gay men and 95% of the HIV cases were due to direct or indirect MSM.

Lesbians have the highest rate of breast cancer and have almost twice the number of HPV cases as straight women while only been .00005% of the population

As typical of all gays, all you ever do is state your dreams which have nothing to do with the law. So dream on dreamer.
