Prove me wrong. Give an example of a law that was changed to accommodate a different situation unrelated to same-sex couples as the result of marriage equality being recognized.
You made the claim, dear, not me. I'm just asking for clarification. Clarification that you apparently cannot supply. Again, no surprise there.
You already know this but okay. The changed laws are not unrelated to gay couples, the changes were made to accommodate them. The constitution of the state of Massachusetts is law, as are the state's general laws. The general laws and the constitution were changed to allow same sex marriage. Those were major changes.

Yes. On both counts. Absolutely. Why has it taken you so long to catch on?
Your problem is that you, like all fundies, equate parenting strictly with the biological act of pushing a baby out and there you go! Parents!! TA-DAH!!!
Parenting is not at all about being fertile and creating a baby. That's a biological function that most anyone can do, even if they don't want to. Parenting is about being there and protecting the child and raising him or her to be a happy, well-adjusted person that can grow up to be independent and have a wonderful life.
Your hang up is that you seem to think no one can be a parent unless they either a) created the child themselves and/or b) have unlike sets genitals in their pants.
My position, as the world of reality that the rest of us live in has proven over and over, is that NEITHER of those things matter when it comes to being a good parent. But you're so hung up on sex and biology that you're completely missing the point.
Of course, you're missing the point on purpose because you have no other argument to make in the face of mountains of information that you're wrong.
Why are you afraid to face the reality that your condition is a sexual birth defect?

Your denial is forcing you to make the insane, idiotic attempt to twist a man into a mom.

That turd won't fly...

Site a specific study WITH methods that shows any such thing.
Montana, by executive order, prohibits discrimination on the bias of sexual orientation only in public employment.

On February 23, 2011, the Montana House of Representatives passed, by a 62-37 vote, a bill that would prohibit local municipalities from adopting anti-discrimination policies not protected in the state law. On April 28, 2011, the bill died in the Montana State Senate's Standing Committee.[8]

The following Montana municipalities have ordinances prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity: Bozeman,[9] Butte,[10] Helena[11] and Missoula,[12] and Missoula County.[13]
beware, state is trash water corrupt.

example , The Supreme Court ruled in Lawrence v. Texas in 2003 that it is unconstitutional to bar consensual sex between adults, calling it a violation of the 14th Amendment.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in the U.S. state of Montana face some legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Same-sex sexual activity is legal in Montana. Same-sex couples and families headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for all of the protections available to opposite-sex married couples. etc.

I accurately note that SS couples are only ever inferior mutually sterile pointlessly duplicate gender halves of marriage.
You still have only gay troll assaults.
PSSSSSSSSS----The Goubeauxs were legally married in Iowa and later adopted their 1-year-old son, Aden, though their marriage is not recognized in Montana. The couple said it cost them nearly $30,000 to adopt their son, which was approximately three times as much as it would have cost if they were a straight couple.

"We want Aden to grow up knowing that we are a family like any other family," Shauna Goubeaux said. "Marriage is part of being a family. By being plaintiffs in this case we are showing him his mommies will stand up for what is right and stand up for him."

The lawsuit challenges Montana's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, which voters passed by referendum in 2004. The complaint alleges the 2004 ban violates the 14th Amendment's guarantees to equal protection.

Perhaps that is because you keep offering unsubstantiated and unconstitutional BS?
Simply put, captain clueless, the US Constitution mandates that states provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws.
Homosexuals are people.
Marriage is a protection of the law in every state in the union.
Most people who have matriculated through grade school could understand these simple concepts. One wonders why YOU cannot?
All same-sex couples should have access to the universal recognition and dignity that comes through marriage, but real couples need real protections.

At its most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior making ss marriage an oxymoron.

Only an idiot would assert that a duplicate gender relationship is the same as a diverse gender relationship.

Or even more profound, that a relationship that naturally bears fruit can be equated to a relationship that is absolutely barren and desolate.

Even children in Montana have the common sense to recognize the difference. California has been renamed the state of Denial.
