I've got to say that I'm pretty stunned by your comments...
Straight people "come out" at a very young age; talking about their attractions to others. As they get older, they openly talk about their sexual conquests, marriages, attempts to get pregnant, etc.
There are entire television programs built on heterosexual love and sex. You see it on commercials (sex sells). You see it in print media.
We, rightly or wrongly, are bombarded by it.
So, if an individual "comes out" as being attracted to people of the same gender; it's a little hypocritical to call it "sexual harassment".
Besides, claiming one's orientation in our society today, is more of a statement of pride and self-acceptance. In an environment of hate and fear of gays, it is a way of saying to yourself and the community at large, "I will no longer abide by your archaic and ignorant demands!"
Furthermore, when a celebrity does this, it helps other young and other LGBT people to feel less isolated and more empowered.
I thought you were a reasonable person.
What happened?
veryvermilion.

Yes. You are right. In less base times, our Homosexual friends and the lesbians had enough self-respect to keep their sexual proclivities "in the closet" (so to speak). Then the 60s 70s revolutionaries (now in power) arrived on the scene. In their attempt to show that their wrongful ideas were "new, unique, and different", they cried out "LET IT ALL HANG OUT!".

According to Solomon:

"One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.(Ecclesiastes 1:4)

"The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose." (Ecclesiastes 1:5)

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Isaiah would seem to have been answering today's 60s 70s era revolutionaries and the idiot hang-it-outer "Love children" they have spawned when he counseled:

"Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.(Isaiah 1:4)

"Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint." (Isaiah 1:5)

"Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:" (Isaiah 1:22)

"And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them." (Isaiah 3:4)

"And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable." (Isaiah 3:5)

"The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves." (Isaiah 3:9)

Oh no,, I know several of them actually and they are appalled that these bozo's think less of their marriages than they do their own.

Their opinion was it was a cheap argument, and wondered if that was really all they had, it is no wonder they are losing the argument nationally.

To insist procreation has nothing to do with marriage is dishonest and dumb. Have you never taken a cultural anthropology or sociology course for chrissakes? People don't come to your side when they know you're lying to them.

Tell the truth. Procreation is irrelevant to modern marriage. There are many truthful reasons why.

To even consider that procreation is a requirement for marriage is not only dumb, but terribly offensive to a very large number of married couples.

Regarding gay marriages, and with no disrespect toward gays, can someone please explain why does one newly wed dress in a tux and the other with a beautiful strapless wedding gown if they are both the same sex?

I never said I think marriage has anything to do with procreation. I know plenty of married people with no children.
STILL no logical counter to this fact;

A fruit tree bearing fruit.
A fruit tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A nut tree who never bears fruit wanting to be a fruit tree.
A nut tree hanging fruit on it's branches pretending to be a fruit tree.

Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' fruit trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call nut trees fruit trees too!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Hilarious!!!

So only things required on a marriage license qualify for marriage, otherwise it is not a part of marriage?

Really. How long is the list?

Snicker.

No one is trying to take rights away from you, it is you that so desperately want to deny rights to others, rights that will do you no harm whatsoever.
