What I get is what two consenting adults, be they two females, two males or one of each, do in the privacy of their own bedroom is none of my concern.
And? You forgot to mention the part where they try to change the laws to accommodate their own selfish needs, their chosen perverted lifestyle as they prance around with their "in your face, militant gay accept my lifestyle or die" attitude
.... pretending as though they're the majority when in reality their still frowned upon by every civilized society.

Because that's the ONLY way to get discriminatory laws changed. And it's the only way to change public opinion.

And it's working.

Stop trying to hurt other people and their families, and those folks will stop complaining about being hurt.

See how that works?

You think demanding legal recognition for one's spouse and family is "selfish"?

What an odd idea. Straight people do it all the time.

And who do you think "changed the laws" specifically to harm gay folks in the first place? Yep. People like you.

So stop whining like a pre-schooler when other Americans fight your ridiculous bigotry, and fight any law that harms them, and their families.

Such fights are part of the backbone of America.

My Dear, you are not a political genius.

And one only had to look at the alternative to know how the vote was heading. Obama was running against a bottom of the barrel flip-flopper of a candidate, who decided to add a VP that scared the bejeezus out of anyone but the most right wing in their party.

A recipe for disaster.

Now you are just trolling, because you have seen the pols and know what they mean.

Some states will drag their feet, possibly for years, but the stats for younger voters are overwhelming, and you know it.

This is ONLY heading in one direction. Learn to cope.

If you change a few of the words around, you could also be talking about organized religion:

You forgot to mention the part where they try to change the laws to accommodate their own selfish needs, their chosen holier than thou lifestyle as they strut around with their "in your face, militant bible thumping accept my lifestyle or die" attitude...pretending as though they have the moral high ground when in reality they are the biggest cheaters and closet homosexuals in civilized society.

You mean another expression of lust, excess, and perversion. In fact any sexual intercourse outside of a consensual man and woman is just that, along with the terms sexual discourse and disobedience. For anyone to suggest that IT rises to the level and worthyness of parenthood is preposterous. Not only is homosexuality a deviation and form of mental illness. So too is regressive liberalism.

So let me get this straight (no pun intended) if a guy and a gal meet at a bar, like each other and go have sex that involves whips, riding crops and bondage for one night and one night only it's not lust, excess, or perversion because it involved a man and a woman?

But because it may involve two consenting adults of the same sex that whole scenario suddenly becomes perverted, excessive and lustful?

I like to keep things simple. Billions of people find it repulsive when two men engage in a wet kiss, normal reaction. A man and a woman engaging in such behavior is supported and championed by the masses, Again, normal.

Homosexuality is similar to incest in that two men of the ss are physically brothers, and two women are physically sisters.
At least when a true brother and sister engage in said acts they have the plumbing right, but it still is wrong, very wrong. There are many things in this world that people do that feels good and is not only wrong but unnatural, unhealthy, and morally unsound. You must champion and honor your own mother and father's original intentions and sadly you have failed. Just like our govt.

You can try, but even IF you should somehome manage to get it passed by your imaginary GOPasaur controlled Congress, the President will simply veto it.

And of course the courts were already overturning DADT, which is why the Congress repealed it before they were made to look like fools by the court.

But have fun trying!

If gays are going to be allowed to serve then they need to be tested regulary...they put the rest of the troops at unnecessary risk. And its a FACT, homosexual men have the highest rate of AIDS.
Obviously you've never served in the military, or you'd know that ALL troops are tested anually for HIV and have been since the first test was developed in 1986.

Fun fact, MORE heterosexual servicemembers contracted HIV (primarily from overseas prostitutes) and were discharged than homosexual servicemembers.

Oh don't you just love it when facts prove you to be an ignorant cowardly bigot?
