Black Daughter can't even spell. Quite lazy. Says a lot about her as an immigrant if she isn't even bothered to learn the english language properly.

1. Marriage can hardly be dumbed down to a legal contract.
But, legally, that's what it is.

2. SCOTUS has already addressed it. Many times over the years.
"We are dealing here with legislation which involves one of the basic civil rights of man. Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race."- Skinner v Oklahoma
Skinner v OK wasn't a case about marriage. It was a case about using forced sterilization as a punishment for a crime. And, at the time, it was illegal in many states to have sex with someone you weren't married to. So, a right to procreate implied a right to marry. But, again, the case had nothing to do with marriage.

Yeah, marriage is a right.
Why are you against equal rights?
KiMare wrote:
"Our Court has not recognized a fundamental right to marry that departs in any respect from the right defined by the US Supreme Court in cases like Skinner which acknowledged that marriage is "fundamental to the very existence and survival of the [human] race" because it is the primary institution supporting procreation and child-rearing (316 US at 541; see also Zablocki, 434 US 374; Griswold, 381 US 479). The binary nature of marriage—its inclusion of one woman and one man—reflects the biological fact that human procreation cannot be accomplished without the genetic contribution of both a male and a female.Marriage creates a supportive environment for procreation to occur and the resulting offspring to be nurtured. Although plaintiffs suggest that the connection between procreation and marriage has become anachronistic because of scientific advances in assisted reproduction technology, the fact remains that the vast majority of children are conceived naturally through sexual contact between a woman and a man."- Hernandez v Robels
And? Allowing gay marriage won't stop people from getting married and reproducing.

"It is an institution in the maintenance of which in its purity the public is deeply interested, for it is the foundation of the family and of society, without which there would be neither civilization nor progress. "- Maynard v Hill
Purity? LOL. MOST marriages end in divorce.

Who knows? What caused your divorce?
Anyway, MOST marriages end in divorce.
Men and women don't have equal rights under current laws. Why are you against equal rights?
<quoted text>
Who knows, you dumb b!tch? Again, MOST marriages end in divorce. Were you sued for custody?
You are the one making decisions based on feelings, your hatred of gay people.
My argument has nothing to do with feelings.
A man has the right to marry a woman, a woman should have that same right.
A woman has the right to marry a man, a man should have that same right.
End in divorce? What sort of people though? Promiscous probably.

That would make marriage no different than a friendship.
The government has no prevailing interest in any way protecting or providing for selective friendships.
Yes it would, friendship isn't a legal contract.
You are dumb!

Don’t ever feel sorry for people that spend their time working to try and deny rights to other Americans, and how hope they are forever tortured.

They have to blame someone, and they can only think in terms of race.

I doubt she was showing white people whites by harrassing them either. She is very kind isn't she, acting all soft and yet hurts people. Usually called being a two face *snort*

I don’t think in terms of white people and black people, I think in terms of Americans, none any better than others.

I let the ignorant think in those terms

Love men? Thats what feminists always say when they love teasing and destroying innocent young boys! And you never had a child? So you want a relationship all for yourself but never want children? What a selfish young women you are!
No, I don't have any kids. And young? LOL! I am, as they say, aged to perfection. My relationship isn't just all for me, it's for my bf as well.
As far as being selfish goes, I think Oscar Wilde said it best:
"Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live."

He said he was 50. Anyway, how can it be relative? Its only relative to the age of the person percieving it. At 40 years old, around 70 would look old to him, how can he call himself old? His grammar isn't too good is it? He bigs himself up with his grammar!
And he knew it presumably, so he was obviously trying to make himself look like some sort of experienced gamer, and thinks we would actually care. Stop supporting such a dead beat and stick your head out of your ass.
"Anyway, how can it be relative?"

You are right

You can always tell when you have won an argument with a child, they won’t attack what you say, but how you say it. They won’t attack the context, but the grammar, or the spelling, or the tone or your person.

Its for your Bf as well? Self gratification? Do you care about who he is as a person? Why don't you want kids? Selfishness is being all about yourself, and not caring about others. Just like you and your self absorbed relationship. How old are you?
