There are 61391 comments on the Los Angeles Times story from Mar 28, 2013, titled Gay marriage. In it, Los Angeles Times reports that:

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

Just as a man and woman are NOT required (by law or church) to describe their sexual orientation, or the extent to which they will have sex, or the type of sex, or if they can/will procreate together - so it goes with same sex couples. It is no one's business who they are or why they have decided to marry. You don't get that?!

Could you please drop a "LEATHER BEAR" on him? Most of us would greatly appreciate it:-)

The disturbing thing here is Dusty is a school teacher.
The disturbing thing here is your presence. Gay marriage has no bearing on your life; you'd know that if you actually lived your life. Instead, you choose to attempt to suppress the lives of others.

The death of every gay teen who commits suicide rests squarely on your shoulders.

I see.

So same-sex marriage would also include straights who want to marry their straight pals.

Is that the plan, fella?

Two points here:
First, as a mental disorder, homosexuality is very close to Tourette's Syndrome. It's another obsessive/compulsive disorder but not quite as mediagenic, assuming you think vulgarity is mediagenic. I think of that as something that most people get out of their system after middle school.
Second, see how stupid this argument has become when people are using anecdotal evidence to determine law? You won't stop your nonsense. Why should anyone stop the other guys?
3...2....1... DENIAL!
Anonymous and Hidden, please know that no matter what your "issues" may be with regard to homosexuality and/or equal rights for all American citizens, YOU LOSE.

You need to hear the truth: your flimsy personal opinions are officially trumped by psychology, constitutional law, and good old fashioned common sense. The days of gay people being seen as "the boogeyman" are over. 65% of Americans disagree with your attitude... because it stinks.

Our only goal is to get marriage equality for same-sex couples in all 50 states, along with employment & housing protections.
So you can continue hating gay people all you want.
You're a dying minority.
Sheep: I don't hate no body. I don't told you to do your thing but do it in private. As far as equal housing, there age gays living together in my little town and no body done told them where to live. As far as getting jobs, no body is going to turn a gay away if he don't know that he is a gay. It is them gays what have to make a big deal that casues trouble. If a gay gets hired and makes a big to do at work that he will get fired. I once worked with a feller that I did not have a clue that he was a gay. He left dirty and nasty magizines laying around showing naked men. I reckon that he was trolling for a man like I troll for fish when I am fishing. They fired him. Does you agree that if you is working and you gotta tell every body that you is gay, then you will probably get fired. So your only goal is for gays to be married all across the country? That won't make you normal and respected. I is glad that you don't care what I dose cause like what you dose, it really ain't no body's business. Why is you always wanting to tell every body what you is and what you dose?

Sheep. Don't you get it. It don't matter if you can marry up in every state. You still are not normal. If you are into every bodys face about it you will still be pitied and laffed at. You still can't normally have sex and raise a real family. You still are going to feel sorry for yourself and you still are going to wish that you were normal. You still are going to turn up rocks trying to find some body or something that you think will put you down so you can feel sorry for yourself. Look here Sheep. Just be yourself and let it go at that. I reckon that there are a few that will pick on you and put you down because of what you are and what you do. Don't pay no attention to them. Shut up about being gay and they can't lay a glove on you. Here is one thing that you can do. Talk to them fellers that hang out in tolets at parks and places like that. Tell them to stop drawing bad pictures and trying to find men to do it with them in nasty and stinking tolets. They is giving you a bad name.

Context ...?
You scour the net, find an instance of a straight wearing a genitalia costume then rush back here waving it like a bloody shirt while yelling, "See! See! Straights do it too!"
You miss the point that whoever does it is engaging in vile and disgusting behavior. Is it, that once you become gay, there's no longer such thing as vile and disgusting behavior?
Is that it, Dusty?
I didn't have to scour the internet; I had MULTIPLE images in one simple search.
That fact that YOU happen to think genitalia costumes are vile and disgusting is irrelevant. Some people find them humorous, others vile, and others don't care at all either way.
To draw a connection between a penis costume in a pride parade and gay marriage is idiotic.
The fact of the matter is that everything you've attempted to state here is simply idiotic. In spite of the fact that you believe that gay marriage has negative consequences on society, you've never proven (or eloquently stated) what they are.
It's of no consequence to me, because you're unable to do anything about marriage equality.
Like KiMare, all you can do is piss and moan about it. In fact, Like KiMare, you're an impotent old man who's powerless to do anything but vent.
You'll get over it, and then you'll be 6 feet under.
I'm still legally married and you're still a homophobic troll.

Eye: When you talk about equal rights what exactly is you talking about. If you ain't married what rights don't you have? You talk about common sense..what makes sense about how you do it. I reckon you is sore because other people want to puke when they think of putting a pecker in a mouth or butt. That is common sense. Psychology? It ain't normal people what are mixed up. They know how nature made us and they know that marriage is made to form a family and have kids. Psychiatrist is what them gays that want to push their stuff on every body need. Constitutional law. Don't make me laff. Them founding fathers what wrote the constitution did not even think of gays when they wrote it. Imagine Thomnas Jefferson and George Washington sitting around and saying "Dose you think that we ought to put in thare that homesexuals should marry up? No way. Just admit it. You just want every body else to say that you are natural and normal. You ain't.

Why are you hanging out in park toilets then? Internet porn is so much better and you won't have to be propositioned by your dad and uncles in the park toilet.

Gay "pride" parades are vile and disgusting. Would you like a list gay authors who've written articles saying so? Here's one; there's many more.

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politi...

In other words, Dusty, your "Anything Goes" attitude is part of the problem. You're a school teacher but you haven't the discernment of an adolescent. You see men in speedos grinding each other's asses and you laugh and say it's good clean fun. You see men in penis suits and you say that's "freedom of speech." If two men dropped to the ground and began having anal sex, you'd no doubt say "Look, kids -- isn't that beautiful?"

And I've said this before, you are a perfect example of why gays should not have access to kids -- and it's not because you're a pedophile; it's because stupidity like yours is corrupting.

Marriage equality and gender identity are distinctly different. If two straight men found a compelling reason to marry they certainly could. It would certainly be easy enough for them to separate, assuming that the union was never consummated.

Years ago that was referred to as a Boston Marriage when it involved two women.

Pinkeye: There is more sense in Kentucky than there ever will be in California. I done got acollege degree from the University of Kentucky where we are the best basketball team in the world. You ain't got nothing like that. Just kidding a college degree.. I did go to the 10th grade though. I dose know that it ain't normal to want to chew on a pecker. But you can't understand that just because I want to puke when I thinks of what you dose, I ain't about to tell you that you can't do it. I says that do it in private and shut up about it. It is those gays that hang out in bathrooms and look through little holes what gives you a bad name and it is those gays who can't shut up and try to horn in on things like marriage that keeps it stirred up. Them what don't know you is gay ain't going to bother you. Now if you goes around calling your self Lover lips like some fool what wrote on here, then you is going to get put down.

So in actually, same-sex marriage is plan to make same-sex marriage available to straights and gays alike?

Okay, now tell us why you feel compelled to extend same-sex marriage to straights?
