I think what you'll find in the next decade or so will be a diagnosis for bigots and homophobes. I mean think about it... A person who tries to make other people's sexual attraction their business. That has pathology written all over it.
I'm not sure what they'll call it--maybe something like "naziosis". Or perhaps they'll name if after you.
Fingers crossed!
The THEORY of epigenetics will likely not come to pass. One of the links you provided to the epigenetics THEORY indicated that determining it to be a fact will be near impossible. And even if they do determine that epigenetics play a role in orientation, there is no indication that there SHOULD be a "cure" or WILL be a "cure" as a result.
I think your epigenetics THEORY will turn around and bite people like you on the ass. Homosexuality will be seen as normal--a naturally occurring event that epigenetics explains.
You know nothing about homosexuality, with the exception of men's asses. And you certainly have shown yourself to know nothing about gender identity.
I doubt that will happen, unless they vote Big D into office.

Gay marriage and same sex marriage are the same thing. I'm not interested in playing word games.

Non issue. We are guaranteed equal protection under the law, that equal protection doesn't have to serve a state interest.
Please take notes, the rational argument for gay marriage is that men and women should have equal protection under the law.
Men and women DO have equal protection under the law. They are both entitled to the protections provided for marriages involving 1 of each gender, so you haven't produced any rational argument to change the definition of marriage. Your argument is a non-issue.

That is correct. No-one has. They are merely exploiting loopholes, in order to gain $$.

How naive you are. Ask your sisters about straight men wanting anal sex.
Anyway, it's a non issue.
The particular sex acts we engage in are not the government's business.
No. They're not. So, the government has no business legislating it into validity.

The fact all you can do is lie about me and my position, and try to insult me, once again shows:
You can't come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.
First, I can't think of how not liking me and being a homophobe would be related. I would never base an argument about gay marriage on who does or doesn't want to marry me.
Now, try again, try to finish this sentence and make a rational argument against gay marriage.
"A person should not be allowed to marry a member of the same sex because..."
I've already played your "fill in the blanks" game. You chose to ignore the reality that I presented. As usual.

Drives you crazy that I support SSM doesn't it? Truly amusing!
Unless you truly think I am lying. If you do please ask yourself "Why would he do that?" Believe me, I am not amused to be on the same side as you on this.
I know that you don't

And yet you and idiots like you are completely unable to present these imaginary "negative consequences". And none of the hundreds of thousands of children already raised in gay headed households agree with any of the idiocy in your post. Sucks to be stupid like you.
Guess you interviewed all them kids huh dipstick. and I'm sure what they actually thought wasn't persuaded by the fact that they felt sorry for their own 'parents' and didn't want to hurt their feelings further. Even a kid raised by an abusive drunk has feelings towards their parents, huh, that you probably know more about first hand. Or the fact that a parent of a queer kid isn't actually going to say how disgusted they are so as to not lose that child. Once again, probably something you are more familiar with . Fruitloop

Abreu is the fourth Cuban player to defect in the past two months, adding to the departures of first baseman Yozzen Cuesta, and pitchers Misael Siveiro and Odrisamer Despaigne.
Cuban defectors Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig have recently signed multimillion dollar contracts to play in MLB.
I love baseball what about you?
Yup, knocked it out of the part big boy, now go home.

Please explain how HIV was spread throughout the gay community affecting such a large percentage more so than any other given community of people, thank you.
I sure got a lotta peanuts asking a question without any answers.

HIV/AIDS continues to disproportionately impact the LGBT community – in fact, newest infections are highest in young gay and bisexual men, particularly young black men. It’s the subject of a White House conference today at Morehouse College in Atlanta, one in a series the administration is holding on LGBT issues.

HRC’s latest issue brief on the subject reports that, according to a recent CDC study in major U.S. cities, 1 in 5 young gay and bisexual men are infected with HIV – yet nearly half don’t even know it.

"The No. 1 way that HIV is spread is through the exchange of HIV positive body fluids — especially genital secretions — that occurs during sexual contact," explains Robert Grossberg, MD, medical director of the Center for Positive Living and the Infectious Disease Clinic at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx in New York City. To get the virus, HIV must be present and there must be enough of it to actually enter into your bloodstream

You are confusing equality in expression with equality in substance. Just like you do with relationships.
No religion has a more powerful or profound impact for good than Christianity does.
One of the 5 pillars of Islam is the requirement to perform acts of charity. Xianity enourages it, but does not require it. Thus Islam is a greater force for good than xianity.

Just ignore all of that violent jihad crap, tha's just the muzzies trying to catch up with the xian death toll. Of course, the muzzies have the technological advantage, so they need to grow out of the violence REAL soon, or they will overshoot the xian death toll, and then the xians will have to go back to killing heretics and infidels...

......
And that's why so many people want to deny gay folks legal marriage? Because marriage and monogamy INCREASE the incidence of AIDS/HIV?

How do you get THAT from supporting other good and law-abiding people marrying and forming families?
