If marriage didn't measure up, why are you trying to impose an imposter relationship on it instead of establishing your own identity?<quoted text>
You know, maybe your marriage doesn't live up to what we believe it should be.
You've never had to fight tooth and nail to get your marriage recognized. You've never had to endure the possible loss of family, friends, employment; all in order to be with the person you love.
My guess is that if you had to do these things, most of you straight bigots would probably just shack up and avoid the inconveniences.
Your marriage will never mean as much as the marriage between two people of the same gender.
You spend billions each year on ridiculous weddings--with $3000 white gowns signifying "purity". Most of the time when a bride comes prancing down the aisle in a white dress, it's all the guests can do to keep a straight face.
Then you turn around and spend almost as much divorcing as you did on marrying.
Oh, and let's not forget about the 40,000,000 babies you guys abort each year. Your children are SO important to you! Tell me, Kim, is abortion also a "cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior"?
Those kids who do happen to make it out of the sacred birth canal; about one in three end up in a home where the father is absent.
You're right... Same-sex couples are very much unlike you. If we have children, it's because we wanted them. We fight through very strict adoption processes in order to have them. I'd lay odds that the percentage of intact same-sex families WAY outnumber the percentage of intact opposite-sex families.
We want our marriages. We want our families.
Your marriages will never equal same-sex marriages.
(see how easy it is to turn things around on you?)
Your counter is only an idiotic exposure of the inner sense of inadequacy that homosexuality struggles with.
I keep trying to get you to see that self acceptance can only be established from a fearless honesty from within.
