what does that say about a fundamental right to marry any consenting adult you wish?
turns out we as society can and do encourage certain family types, and deny others irrelevant of love or desire to marry, eh?

So then why did you bring it up? It looks like you were merely being purposefully incendiary, again. You make a statement that isn't true and then start an argument over it.

if you weren't as dumb as you are, you would see a RHETORICAL QUESTION and the answer...

your silly attempt to be "purposefully incendiary" failed again.

so we AGREE there is no fundamental right to gay marriage, right?

So, in other words, "I can't provide a supportable, government-based reason to deny marriage equality, it's just animus on my part, but I'm not man enough to admit when I'm wrong."
How about we just leave it at that since it's painfully obvious that that's the case?
no. because you play stupid games like the "in other words" game on display here, you are simply not worth it...

Here's a solution. Instead of claiming I'm playing stupid word games, how about you provide a supportable, government-based reason to deny marriage equality??

Wouldn't that stop my "stupid word games" right then and there?

Oh, yeah. You can't, because there IS no valid reason to deny equal rights, is there? Go figure!

obviously not.

you start from a position of being entitled, and so you will hear no argument to the contrary...

Okay. Not ignoring your continued attempts at smokescreens...

"Plumbers are different from electricians, therefore they are not entitled to the same recognition under the law."

"Women are different than men, therefore they are not entitled to the same recognition under the law."

"Bio families are different than blended families, therefore they are not entitled to the same recognition under the law."

"People that like broccoli are different than people that don't like broccoli, therefore they are not entitled to the same recognition under the law."

How are THOSE ridiculous statements any less ridiculous than yours?

And, yes, as American citizens, we DO start from a position of entitled. Entitled to equal rights and equal treatment under the law. So unless you can provide a supportable, government based reason to classify same-sex couples differently than opposite sex couples, you're just jerking yourself off here, aren't you?

Judge Stephen Reinhardt, in the court’s 128-page opinion, wrote that “although the Constitution permits communities to enact most laws they believe to be desirable, it requires that there be at least a legitimate reason for the passage of a law that treats different classes of people differently. There was no such reason that Proposition 8 could have been enacted.”

SS look!!! Lookey, lookey! The judge ruled there's no legitimate reason for Prop 8! Isn't that how you would spin it? It's called consistency.
