Why I oppose gay marriage

There are 74 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from Sep 21, 2012, titled Why I oppose gay marriage. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

Full disclosure: I am gay. A few years ago, I was on the other side of the fence on this topic. But the more I read, thought, investigated and attempted to defend my position, the more I realized that I couldn’t. I feel very strongly that gay relationships should be supported by society. I have grown convinced, however, that the term “marriage” should not be altered or adjusted in any way.

I am a little confused. It's obvious the author is full of it. Not only gay and against gay marriage but the founder of some Tea Party segment? This has bullsh!t written all over it yet its appearing in The Washington Post?

The Post just lost all of its credit.

There can't be another union name other than marriage for gays because creating a new one would take too much time and effort. Marriage has had tweaks in the past, this is one of them. There are too many complications to creating a new system. To prove my point, how long has marriage been around for, and how many times has it been tweaked and updated? To come up with an entirely different system would take more than a few years, way more.

The original writer is correct. Homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live!

No significant percent of the homosexual population has 'married' in ANY country that allows it, and studies have shown that few such 'marriages' are even exclusive relationships.

The homosexual 'marriage' movement is a hate based political charade attacking what others hold sacred.

No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No economically or physically unequal genders are involve. No child is ever born as a direct result, and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Having both is one of the most accurate statistical predictions of a child's future success in life.

Homosexual themselves overwhelmingly reject 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

The same percentage of homosexuals are produced by heterosexuals in every generation. Much the same as in other species.

Actually, what miss lunatic has forgotten is that most anal sex is performed by straight people. Also that only a third of gay people participate in anal sex. Oh, one more thing:
THE MAJORITY of people have oral sex. This is one of the "points" she brought up. It is evident that she is against oral sex because she constantly says that everyone should only participate in penile/vaginal sex.

Sorry guys, I just don't get this gay thing, its all about sex, nothing else, pure sex, and thats sad, why get married? whats the point? many have different forms of sex without a piece of paper saying they are legally bond., if its the will thing, simply make up a will saying the "mate" is to get everything you own and they have the power of attorney to make decisions for you if you are uncapable, where is the problem with this? why is it so important to have that piece of paper?

Even science isn't so arrogant as to presume to know the absolute purpose of everything. There are purposes and mechanisms in nature, from the most basic to the most complex, that science is humble enough to acknowledge we are just gaining a glimpse of understanding.
It's obvious you are unaware of how reproductive and excretory organs have evolved. Go to a public library or science museum and look up the anatomy of more primitive lifeforms such as fish and reptiles, and compare with birds and mammals, to see how things evolved. Learn about human anatomy and how nerve endings and pleasure receptors are distributed about the body. Check out findings about human sexual behaviour and response and prepare to have your mind blown. There's a huge amount of perfectly natural, normal, human sexual behaviour that has little or nothing to do with the "missionary position."
Once again, its all about SEX nothing else, just sad.

Sorry guys, I just don't get this straight thing. It's all about sex, nothing else, pure sex, and that's sad. Why get married? What's the point? Many straights have different forms of sex without a piece of paper saying they are legally bonded. If it's the will thing, simply make up a will saying the "mate" is to get everything you own and they have the power of attorney to make decisions for you if you are uncapable.

How do we know nature, God, science, or whatever you believe in did not intend the same sex to fornicate? simple, if all of society was gay we would be wiped off the face of the planet within 60 years, same sexes of the human race CANNOT reproduce!

Being gay is not just all about who one has sex with. If that were the case than the opposite would be true too. Being straight being all about the sex. But you know there is so much more to your sexuality than the sex but why do so many on your side of the argument always display an utter lack of empathy that you cannot see that the only difference between gays and straight is who they find sexually attractive. Everything you feel towards your wife are the same things experienced in same-sex couples.

Why would straights want to marry? All the same reasons for gays and lesbians.
George wrote:

But straights have the option to marry. You would deny that right to gays and lesbian couples.

You obviously never heard that wills of gay partners are often challenged by the 'next of kin'. Without marriage, a gay "mate" can never be a 'next of kin' and will always be second to a possible parent or sibling that the law recognizes as the gay's legal next of kin who can thwart the wishes of the deceased.

And marriage automatically gives some 1200-plus rights, benefits and yes, obligations, that can never be completely covered by going to a lawyer. And marriage gives those 1200+ rights for $50 while lawyers will charge $1000 for less protection.

Wills don't waive inheritance taxes of the home the couple shared for the surviving spouse. Having been married, the surviving spouse stays in their home paying no inheritance tax.

Medical decisions? I refer you back to the will paragraph but I will add that married spouses do not carry their marriage license around to prove to that hospital while on vacation that they are spouses. Gay and lesbian couples quickly learn to never leave home without those documents. And even with those documents there are cases where hospitals and their employees still caused problems for the couple.

Why is it so important to heterosexuals to have that piece of paper? Every reason you come up with for heterosexuals, homosexuals have all of the same reasons. You would know this if you (and most of those on your side of the argument) had an ounce of empathy.
