Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
Sorry, but the "majority" doesn't get to vote for discrimination against ANYONE. Prop H8 should never have been placed on a ballot, in the first place. I wonder how you would feel if YOU were in the "minority" and people voted to take away YOUR civil rights, or treated YOU like a second class citizen. I don't think you would feel the same way about this issue.

Nah, I just want you to state it in plain words once again. Without beating around the bush. What is the only "option" for gays?
You need to understand 'context'. I was speaking of the PRIMARY EXPRESSION of intimacy as designed by nature. For heteros' it is intercourse. They have the default option of anal sex. It is rarely exercised by hetero's. Gays have only the default option. Inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

Actually, all humans have oral, anal, and vaginal sex as an option, and they have a variety of appendages that are used in a variety of places and ways for sexual purposes.

As far as I know, NO marriage law in the country defines which types and methods of sex that couples must engage in to obtain a marriage license.

Are you suggesting such a thing? And, if so, how would you police every bedroom in the country?

It's sad, but so many people seem to be lacking the ability to feel empathy. They CAN'T understand what you are saying, because something very basic is broken inside them.

How would "consummation" be defined as in the "marriage was consummated"?

Not mental note. Just happen to notice. You see my mind unlike your is strong. I can think of and do more then one thing at a time. After years of going to same gym you just notice how all and I mean all of the tiny untied men drive big trucks or fancy cars and have GOP bumper stickers....Just crazy huh?

I speak Kimare, so I can clarify. When a kimare has to backpedal in order to make sense of something that he previously side we can refer to that as "taken out of cuntext".

In a literal sense, there is no such type of fish as a "red herring"; rather it refers to a particularly strong kipper, meaning a fish (typically a herring but not always) that has been strongly cured in brine and/or heavily smoked. This process makes the fish particularly pungent smelling and, with a strong enough brine, turns its flesh reddish.

"Frankie Rizzo" is just a troll. He is obviously against gay marriage, and is flying under false colors. Since he doesn't have a rational argument against gay marriage, he tries to confuse the issue by flooding the forum with posts about the red herring of polygamy. Want to bet he's never, ever made a post about the subject in a polygamy forum? And he is so stupid, he doesn't know what the term "red herring" means. He thinks I'm talking about a fish.
Rosie....Rosie ...(sigh) Rosie....Frankie has expressed in numerous post his support for gay marriage. He has so expressed his support for other types of marriage such as polygamy under the concept of "marriage equality".

460 children were ripped from their loving biological parents in Texas with no evidence of any crime beyond polygamy. Crying terrified little kids, taken from their moms and dumped into the notorious Texas CPS.

The children were eventually returned but the damage is permanent.

In Rose_NoHo la la land, all marriages are equal. It's just that some marriages are more equal than others.
