Because we want to have the same rights and benefits as a traditional m/f marriage. Why can't we have that how does it hurt anyone?
Why? There was a time when marriage was dismissed by the gay community as too "heteronormative", reserved for "breeders"....

Why does it matter that a personal intimate sexual SSR is legally labeled "marriage"?

1.) Not even worth addressing
2.) "Boy Toy" is a term given to a younger man (not a child or minor) who is with someone much older.
And let me ask you a question... If gay sex with a minor is "homosexuality", then what is heterosexual sex with a minor considered? Would it be heterosexuality or just pedophilia?
1. You mean you have no defense.

2. I'd say there is homosexual pedophilia and heterosexual pedophilia. I also think there are homosexuals and heterosexuals who take advantage of minors. To deny either of those facts is to leave children vulnerable. You do so to excuse homosexuals. Despicable.

You have something against nice teeth and long hair? I've been told I look like several celebrities. They've changed as I aged and cut my hair, Robert Plant & Roger Daltry were first (the hair was sunbleached blonde in my youth and very very long), Kenny Loggins (hair grew back darker after cutting it for grad school interview process). A few years and a hair cut later (for a job) I became Chuck Norris. And Jesus (that was one that stuck with me from teenage years to present each time my hair was long). That was hilarious. I told people to be careful as I might kick their arse instead of saving it. This was after I opened my own business and didn't have to answer to anyone about appearances. I wear it in a ponytail and cut off about a foot every three years to give to Locks of Love.
The Chuck Norris one was probably the most accurate for up close. I had a gaggle of kids follow me around a store one time giggling and hiding behind displays to get a peak at me. When I walked out they were waiting and sent the youngest one over to ask if I was Chuck Norris. Only he was a little confused and asked if I was Bruce Lee (absolutely no resemblance whatsoever). I nearly fell over with laughter. Kids can be really cruel at times, but they can be very cute and entertaining too.
Oh, I have been propositioned by gay men on a few occasions. Politely declined.
I look like Bruce Willis. Smirk and everything.

Smile.

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SEX!!!!!!!!!!
It's about the rights and benefits that we are denied when we are in the same type of relationship as straight married couples. Medical benefits and rights of spouses, tax benefits, inheritance etc. 1,138 rights and benefits we are denied.

It's either that, or about how a single judge believes he has the right and authority to un-legislate the will of the people. It is your side that is claiming just because you have swayed public opinion over the years with your relentless campaign to redefine what is normal that where you have a majority, your side should prevail. In the places where you failed miserably to win your argument when put to the vote of the people, where the majority stands against you, then a judge should decide to grant you victory over the people. I believe they refer to that as tyranny, which is a tree that Thomas Jefferson said we have an obligation to water occasionally with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Actually it is about the sex Jaredb8, and I say that because it is the principle difference between what is traditional and non-traditional. Humanity has not advanced through the centuries because of procreative abilities of the gay man or the lesbian women. It is unlikely that anyone could distinguish our sexual proclivities if we were standing next to one another, unless of course you are a flamer and its obvious. It is your sexual desires you act out on that makes us different, and your behavior contrary to what nature or God intended. I throw nature in there because God is nothing to most of you, as you have decide you are God.

Are you willing to give these rights and benefits to polygamist also? They also should have the right to marry as would members of families marrying each other should have if same sex marriage law passes.

It's a little insulting to us that you find our situation amusing.
I'm guessing that if the shoe were on the other foot--if someone tried to deny your rights to bear arms or worship in the way you feel appropriate, you'd be on here trying to change minds, just like us.
And I'm guessing that you would get frustrated and angry if anyone made fun of your situation.
We're not here for your entertainment.
In some of your posts you indicate that you are a Christian person. Your words and actions are not those of Christ.
Here's a little tip... Before you get ready to hit the "post comment" button below, ask yourself, "Is this something that Christ would say? Is this how he wanted us to act when he commanded us to "love your neighbor as you love yourself"?
I do love you:)

Get a job at MalWart and get back to us. Oh, and try to buy a Huffy bicycle made in the US. You'll have to use eBay and find an old one though. MalWart killed off the last bicycle factory on US soil. As much as some folks think we don't need manufacturing jobs there are large numbers of folks that could use them. I also have fond memories of someone showing me a pair of nail clippers they'd purchased for their dog. I didn't know metal could be made to be so soft. They had all the strength of American cheese single slices. Capitalism with out soul or conscience, that should be MalWart's slogan.
I find it convenient:) Yeah they suck the business from small business owners but walmart is huge no sense in fighting them!

GBLT have to make YouTube videos about their fake Constitutional right to go along with their YouTubes about how to make a knock-off Chick Fil A sandwich.

Nothing beats the real thing.

So, if marriage to another man is marriage equality for gays and marriage to another woman is marriage equality for lesbians then marriage to another man and another woman is marriage equality for bisuexuals, right? Then, if we change marriage law based on orientation then polygamy must be legalized. That's not good.
So what? If all participants are up for it, more power to 'em. Think of the benefits the kids will have, two moms and a dad or two dads and a mom. More is better right? So long as they're loved and not abused.

No point fighting them because the vast majority of human beings don't think beyond right now. They just do what is easy. Saving for something a little more expensive and of better quality, thus longer lasting isn't a priority for the impatient. We live in a disposable society. Just enjoy the landfill.

At least s.v.o.h. agrees, the arguments for same sex marriage support polygamy too. Marriage equality means same sex marriage and polygamy too. Not long until incest marriage and contract marriage come along for the party.

The people who take advantage of children are ephebophiles, hebephiles, and pedophiles. Homosexuals and heterosexuals tend to be attracted to age appropriate partners. At least the ones I know. Sure, you'll get some blurring of the lines. I know a guy who will only date girs in their 20s. He's in his 50s now. I can't imagine what hell that is. Maybe he is just immature and never made it out of his 20s. I suppose his income bracket helps. It just limits him to the shallow end of the pool though.
