But the bottom line is it doesn't matter what percentage of gays want or desire to get married! They should all have that right the same as you and I and as the Constitution dictates as per the 14th amendment!
And come next month the Supreme court will uphold the 9th circuit that has deemed Prop 8 in California to be Unconstitutional by the 2 lower courts! So sad to bad bigot boy! 12 now D.C. and counting! Thank you Minnesota my old home state! By the way,I'm straight! So answer away as it is totally moot!

Dahmer wasn't a pedophile; he was a sociopath with abandoment issues. He was trying to create the perfect slave--someone who would never leave him. The cannibalism was apparently another means of him keeping someone with him. Joining some cult doesn't change orientation.
BTW--we're gay, not vampires.

Why then do homosexuals have 4 times as many partners as heterosexuals? Where is your evidence that shows this is true? My guess is it is just a fabricated number that is totally irrelevant because it simply doesn't matter!!!

What are the truncated divorce rate numbers for the gay community? Seeing as again this question is irrelevant, no one is saying that Gays and Lesbians won't have a high divorce rate......my guess is it will be what it will be once we truly start seeing more states that allow Gay and Lesbian couples the right to marry.......but again, we don't seem concerned with heterosexuals divorcing and remarrying......just Gays and Lesbians!!!

What percentage of gays actually want to get married? You seem to ask a lot of irrelevant questions......if one Gay or Lesbian couple wants to get married and are denied that right......it discriminatory. Here in California, there were 18,000 Same-Sex Couples who got married in a 5 1/2 month window, over a 1000 Same-Sex Couples got married in New York within the 1st month......but again it doesn't matter!!!

You're presuming that los angeles county and SF represent the country, and they do not.

HPV is not an STD; you can get it without any sexual contact. You think cysts are an STD? Really?

Your stats are all over the place, from national to local to all cases to gays. Yes, there are a lot of people living ith AIDS--many have done so for over a decade.

<quoted text>You must have thought that I could not research, since you can not. Actually, liar, lesbians have the highest rate of HPV and cysts for breast cancer, the highest rate of herpes simplex or STDS.
Since the beginning of the epidemic a total of 28,793 San Francisco residents have been diagnosed with AIDS, which comprises 18% of California AIDS cases and 3% of cases reported nationally. There have been 19,341 reported AIDS deaths in San Francisco as of Dec. 31, 2010.
Approximately 109,000 Californians are HIV-positive, among whom 69,728 are living with AIDS.
There are up to 7,000 new HIV infections in the state every year.
75.7% of all HIV/AIDS cases occur among gay men, far exceeding the 53% nationally.
Men make up 89.5%. Women account for 9.8% of cases, and transgender persons for 0.6%.
Of all HIV cases, whites account for 46.7% followed by Hispanics at 29.2% and African Americans at 18.9%.
More than 60% of Californians living with HIV reside in Los Angeles County or the San Francisco Bay Area.
Source: California Office of AIDS, AIDS Surveillance Report (as of June 2010)
64% of all AIDS cases reported since the beginning of the epidemic are concentrated in 10 states or territories. While the District of Columbia has the highest AIDS case rate (112.5 per 100,000 in 2010), the states of California (12.6%), New York (11.9%), and Florida (10.9%) have the most cumulative AIDS cases.

Secondly.....again it matters not because heterosexuals contract the SAME STD's, diseases and HIV/AIDS......again, we don't prevent Heterosexuals from marrying simply because they have an STD or are HIV positive!!!

First off......it matters not how many partners a person is with......hell, there are lots of straight men who have had over 5000 women sexually, both Fidel Castro(over 35,000 women) and Wilt Chamberlain(had over 20,000 women) had a combine total of over 55,000 women sexually.......what evidence do you have to back up this multiple partners claim for Gay men?
Secondly......being Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual is as innate as being Straight is......so, unless you are Bisexual......then it would be almost impossible for you to have sex with someone of the same gender!!!
Thirdly......no matter how many sex partners one has had before settling down.....it is irrelevant with regards to having the right to marry!!!
And though you are entitled to your opinion......your opinions don't make the laws of this Country.
13.5 years straight of having sex with a different Women every night, that would be 5000.
Do you really want to continue to believe Castro, Wilt The Stilt, or accept facts as presented?

Orientation is the innate sexual and emotional attraction to others. There are 4 types: straight, gay, bi, and asexual.

Homosexuality has been confirmed in many species of animals by behaviorists.

No, I'm not saying asians are pedophiles, and it takes a true moron to think I said anything like it. First of all, you frigging bigot, asian men know the difference between an adult asian and a child. Secondly, being attracted to cildhood is not the same as being attracted to a person who happens to look younger than their age.

No, most pedophiles are NOT gender-preferential. Only in cases where the origin of the fetish distinctly involved a specific gender does that manifest. You can take it up with the APA or the FBI if you choose not to believe me.

BTW, fucwit--you're trying to absorb bits of info; I've been taking psych courses since high school. Your understanding of these issues is primitive.

please f**k off and f**k off again.

<quoted text>Thank you for trying. I understand what you are trying to say. However, what is sexual orientation any way? How come homosexual orientation only exists in humans who can be abused and mentally misconstrued into drug abuse, alcoholism and homosexuality as well as pedophilia.
You said that pedophilia is not the fetish for children, right, but the appearance of childhood. So, are you saying that Asian men are largely pedophiles, because many Asian women have child-like bodies. Also, many gay men date young male adults who look like they are 14, so are they pedophiles.
However, you mention pedophilia, but most of the gay abuse cases of with boys over the age of 13 who do not look childlike. Most of the 95% gay child abuse RCC cases were pederasty, you know, boys who do not look childlike.
Actually, you are lying, pedophile are primarily gender specific, but why are you changing your tune. Your group was arguing that most pedophiles were heterosexuals, now that you have lost that argument, you want to shift.
PLEASE READ AND READ AGAIN:
The term “pedophilia” is a psychiatric diagnosis classified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) as a sexual disorder or paraphilia. It is characterized by the following:(a) recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children (generally age 13 years or younger) over a period of at least 6 months; (b) the person has acted on these sexual urges, or the sexual urges or fantasies cause marked distress or interpersonal difficulty; and (c) the person is at least age 16 years and at least 5 years older than the child or children. It does not include an individual in late adolescence involved in an ongoing sexual relationship with a 12or 13year old. While the DSM-IV-TR diagnosis specifies that the person has either acted on these urges or is distressed by them, many believe that actual touch or distress are not necessary components; that is, someone who has the recurrent intense urges but never acted on them nor been distressed by them, should still be considered a pedophile. Most pedophiles are male; as stated above, there are relatively few female child molesters and a very small percentage of those actually evidence a sexual attraction to children. However, all prevalence data are suspect because of the secrecy surrounding these behaviors.
Pedophiles typically report an attraction to children of a specific gender and age range. Those attracted to females usually prefer 8to 10-year-old girls while those who prefer males usually seek out 11 to 13-year-old boys. A sexual attraction to young girls is more often reported than to young boys but this may reflect a greater reluctance to admit same-sex attraction. Some pedophiles are exclusively attracted to children while others profess a sexual attraction to adults as well. The stereotypic pedophile—single, shy, interpersonally awkward with adults...

You want to make an issue of supposedly what Gay men do, but then turn around and dispute when information is given about Straight men......and yes, I wouldn't doubt that these men have slept with as many women as they have claimed.......just like I'm sure you believe all the crap you read about involving Gay men, right?

Downplaying the risks involved reduces you to a sycophant trying to salve the human psych.
You would purposely shroud the the truth for your own 'selfish' gain. Anyone with an ounce of credibility would try to steer young people away from a degrading lifestyle, but you would PROMOTE it.

What truth? That sexual practices come with risks? They do and if one chooses to not take precautions then that is their problem and issue, not mine.....like I said, I've NEVER had an STD nor do I worry about HIV/AIDS because I am not active in high risk sexual behaviors!!!

There is NOTHING degrading about being Gay or Lesbian and if one is Gay or Lesbian why should they be told to try and change who they are?

Some gays have many partners, some are totally monogamous--just like hets. In some ways, gays are more honest...we don't all pretend that sex is the same as love. As a community, our relationships haven't had the same social support that straights have enjoyed. Most importantly, it's none of your f**king business who has how many partners.

How many gays want to marry? Under the constitution, it only takes ONE to change the law.

How many hets want to marry? Probably not as many as you think.

Only insecure men notch the bedpost.

Nobody denies SOME gay men are promiscuous, just like some straight boys are promiscuous.

First you have to prove that homosexual orientation exists.
Here is one:
US rearchers are finding common biological traits among gay men, feeding a growing consensus that sexual orientation is an inborn combination of genetic and environmental factors that largely decide a person's sexual attractions before they are born.

Here is another:

And other one:

Sexual orientation does exist........on the human sexuality scale..........people vary from a 0(exclusively straight) to a 6(exclusively Gay or Lesbian). Between 1-5 people will vary:

The CDC is not accurate......because it only able to report what numbers it is given and therefore everything they state is involving Estimates, not actual hard numbers or facts.

Again, it is you who want to believe some website without doing any more research on the subject.

HIV/AIDS is low among Lesbians, and it is high among certain ethnic groups like Black and Hispanic men who are either Bisexual or Gay(and don't want to believe it).......and I'm not saying that the numbers aren't important.......but what I am saying is that these numbers are there for Straights as well......mostly folks who pass on HIV/AIDS haven't gotten tested and don't know that they have it because people like you keep stating that only Gays and Lesbians are affected by it, when in reality HIV/AIDS is a World Wide Epidemic!!!

<quoted text>Wow, you found two straight men who had sex almost as often as gays do on average. The evidence of multiple partnership claims for gay men and lesbians. Don't leave lesbians out. We have the same evidence that you have and we both know it is fact. If not, then gays and lesbians are just lucky, I mean how come a group of 1-3% account for most of the HIV and HPV cases. You are right, everyone should have the right to marry and that means adult men marrying women and visa versa.
Absolutely, although you are entitled to your opinion, your opinion does not make the laws of this country. However, straights do make the laws of this country and so far we have 31 state locked in and we shall call them the "untouchables".
There are more than 2 and if you don't know that.....well then you are about as dumb as a box of rocks.......lol!!!

My opinions don't make the laws of this Country, but my right to vote definitely has something to do with the rights and Laws of this Country!!!

Please post the evidence to your claim that Gay men have these high numbers of sexual partners......my guess is you won't because they probably come from some anti-gay website.....but I would like you to post your source. Thanks!!!

Again, please show the evidence that Lesbians have multiple sex partners.......I'd love to see this one......thanks!!!

The right to marry means the ADULT of my choice.....not based on what sexual plumbing they have. I have been legally married to my wife for almost 5 years now.......this is my first and only legal marriage and I look forward to our 30th anniversary as well:-)

Actually AMERICAN CITIZENS make the laws of this Country regardless of whether they are straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersex......and yes, there are 31 states that have laws or Constitutional Amendments on the books to deny the right to marry for Same-Sex Couples......but a couple of them will probably be gone next year and currently we have 12 States and DC that grant the right to marry for Same-Sex couples and Illinois could be next, with California hopefully returning next month.......we could pick up New Mexico, New Jersey and possibly Oregon by next year as well.......we will have to wait and see:-)
