UN Projects 9.6 Billion People by 2050
Jun. 25, 2013 - The latest population projections issued by the United Nation earlier this month suggest that world population is on a faster growth path than previously projected. The UN now projects that world population will reach 7.2 billion next month, 9.6 billion by 2050 and 10.9 billion by 2100. That projection assumes, however, that access to family planning in developing countries will continue to expand and that fertility in the least developed countries will fall from 4.53 children per woman today to 2.87 by mid-century.

So you think they were wrong to base their decision in large on the 5th Amendment?
Please tell us all how they got it wrong.
And YAY! I can marry a dude! That's all we wanted and that's what we got.
We would have been happier if they had overturned DOMA altogether. That didn't happen. However, they have set a standard that's going to be awfully hard for states with DOMA written into their constitutions to maintain it.
Same-sex couples will go to apply for a marriage license. They will be denied. These couples will appeal any state's decision to try to enforce DOMA. They will go before a federal court. That's how states will be overturned--one by one.
I wasn't commenting on the DOMA decision. Damn you're ignorant.

1.) Who cares? Why compare the two in the first place? Never really understood why we continue to go down the road of offspring and mating.
It has nothing to do with legal marriage, whether the couples are male/female, male/male, or female/female.
Legal marriage is a contract between two people who tie their lives together through a legal process. Once completed, the legal contract provides the couple a set of privileges, protections, and benefits that supports the day-to-day needs of the couple.
IF the couple decides to have children via procreation or adoption, the marriage provides certain protections to them as well.
But as we have all agreed, marriage licenses are not granted based on the prerequisite that a couple will have offspring. Therefore, any discussion of children with regards to the legally binding contract between two adults (i.e. marriage) is pointless.
2.) People smoke cigarettes, they eat highly processed and fatty foods, they don't get enough exercise, they drive too fast, they play the stock market, etc... I could go on and list thousands of high risk behaviors that humans engage in.
But we don't live in a totalitarian country. The state doesn't dictate every, single, solitary movement we make.
We are free to engage in whatever behaviors--within certain limits--that we choose.
If you don't like that kind of life, then move to a place where the government makes every decision for you.
By the way, has it ever occurred to you that gay men don't have to be told how to have homosexual intercourse? We just do what comes natural. There isn't a guidebook filled with instructions that we pass around to one another before having sex. We know what we like. We know what we want to do.
I think that's one of the strongest arguments to the normalcy and naturalness of gay male sex.
Who cares if you think anal sex is risky. That's your opinion. You choose to live a life in which you allegedly don't engage in it. More power to you.
Now keep your nose out of other people's asses.
3.) YOU seem to be the one who discounts sexual activity unless it's done for the purposes of procreation. You and your "mutually sterile, blah, blah, blah..."
I, on the other hand, believe a person can have sex for any number of reasons. That is why gay sex is no better or worse than straight sex, and vice-versa.
I only point out the absurdity of your constant comments that same-sex couples are inherently defective since we do not procreate.
We don't have sex to procreate.
Not every single sexual act that you've had with your wife was for the purposes of procreation.
4.) If you don't like my witty, sometimes catty comments, then don't respond to them. It takes two to carry on a conversation.
Which brings us back to the fact that 'ss marriage' is an oxymoron.

A ss couple will only ever be a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

And you are full of sh/t and make ignorant, deceitful, idiotic statements and then lie about what you said.

And don't forget that the SCOTUS ruling has had not one single iota of effect on those facts.

Wrong again

How fast is the world's population growing?
The world's current growth rate is about 1.3%, representing a doubling time of 54 years. We can expect the world's population of approximately 6 billion to become 12 billion by 2054 if the current rate of growth continues. The world's growth rate peaked in the 1960s at 2% and a doubling time of 35 years.

You keep spewing the same crap
"Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning."
Look if you don't like anal sex stop having it
Look if you feel demeaned when you have anal sex stop having it.
If you don't like the way SCOTUS ruled, leave the country.
I have yet to read in any link that you have given, where a doctor says that anal sex is demeaning, inherently harmful or unhealthy.
As with any sexual encounter, precautions should be used.

So the UN said 9 billion by 2050, now this site is saying 12 billion.

Quite a difference, maybe you need to check the sources???

Embarrassed?

Simply pointing out that the SCOTUS decision didn't change the vast and numerous distinctions between ss couples and marriage.

Did it?

It is about love, commitment, and yes, among some polygamists, religious faith. Sounds like you're a poly-a-phobe.

Silly thing.
Are all couples who cannot have, or choose not to have children "failures of mating behavior"?
No because it doesn't invalidate the concept as a whole. Human reproduction is sexual. "Marriage" developed as a means of regulating that.
How about trying to some up with something logical for a change?
For instance, can you prove that the tens of thousands of great children being raised by gay parents are better off if their parents can't legally marry?
Why can't their biological mother and father marry?

Are you prove the tens of thousands of great children being raised in polygamous families are better off if their mother and father can't legally marry?

Prove that one and you would have a good argument, instead of this silly stuff.

Who gives a damn what you think? The law is what counts. Gays and lesbians are getting what they want. Federally recognized marriage is available in 13 states and the District of Columbia. 12 of those states passed laws within the past 5 years--6 in the past year alone.

30% of the U.S. population live in a state where same-sex marriage is legal and recognized by the Federal Government.

It's coming to a neighborhood near you... Get used to it.

It's not what I 'think', it is simply facts that no ruling can change.

Legal or not, ss couples are still clearly not the same.

1.) Marriage is not a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. You made that up.

2.) Homosexuality is not a sexual defect. It has been observed in mankind for as far back as recorded history. It is observed throughout the animal kingdom. It obviously has a purpose on the planet.

3.) Anal sex is not unhealthy or abnormal. Millions of people--straight and gay--engage in anal sex on a daily basis. Even animals engage in anal sex. Many male giraffes engage in anal sex with other male giraffes to the point of orgasm.

4.) There is not such term as "epi-genetic mistake"; a term you throw around regularly.

5.) You claim that once the origin of homosexuality is found, scientists will develop a cure, even though there are no studies by reputable scientists to cure homosexuality.

----------

You lie regularly. You twist the truth regularly. You make up definitions and terms regularly. You, through your ignorance about basic science, distort scientific findings.
