That you argue so vehemently that prop 8 didn't also ban polygamy tells us all we need to know about your motives.

I really don't see the point otherwise.

So if it's okay for a man to marry another man based upon sexual appetite, what are you going to do about a man that's bisexual? Shouldn't he be able to marry another man and a woman to satisfy his sexual appetite? I mean, after all, it only make sense. I'm all for bisexual marriages and it should be the law of the land. There is a slight problem and that's if a bisexual marries another bisexual. If that happens, then you end up with a bisexual man marrying another bisexual man and you can have two other men and two women involved which means you end up with 6 people all married together. Or how about a bisexual man marrying a bisexual woman and the bisexual man also has a man as his wife and the bisexual woman has another woman as her husband. This really gets complicated, but it's only fair to consider all these possibilities and make allowances for each and every situation.
Let's hear it for bisexual marriages!
And why would any of that matter to you? It's not your life. Live how you want and let people marry whoever they want.

Sure you can. Prop 8 did.
Please be honest for once and answer my simple question. Did prop 8 allow polygamy? WE KNOW it was already against the law. Did prop 8 not say ONE man ONE woman only?
No. Prop 8 did NOT say one man and one woman only.

Prop 8 said marriage in California is a man and a woman. Did it say men and women, Miss thing? or did it say a man and a woman?

Does a law that simply states "marriage is a man and a woman only" allow polygamy Miss Thing?

Please answer, don't tell me I'm on drugs or brain dead or ignorant, just tell me yes or no. Thanks!

I have made a handy reference guide for you hope it helps you avoid future confusion-

Man singular
Men plural

Woman singular
Women plural

a man = one man
men = more than one man

a woman = one woman
women = more than one woman

Hope it helps! Good luck.

But I took a cultural anthropology class as an elective. You aren't going to find ANY textbook that says polygamy is a good thing, so stop lying about it.
