Would you employ a hoodlum over a scientist? No, because he is wasting his life and has shown himself less valuable, that doesn't mean he is more stupid, it simply means he has more problems.

No, it isn't. Everybody is just as intelligent, Darwin. People could have dyslexia, maybe don't pay much attention to grammar, could be tired, or might simply have struggled learning it and made a habit of poor spelling. Such generalizations. And why should intelligence matter?
Nah, you're stupid.

IQ's aren't accurate ways to measure.

Have you read the prop 8 transcript and looked at the briefs submitted yet? You haven't attempted to refute the fact a hearing was held and evidence was submitted.

And again, many other courts have agreed, including the one that reviewed Judge Walkers decision, and the full circuit which refused to reconsider it.

You still provide no reasonable or legitimate governmental interest served by denial of equal treatment under the law. Straight couples gain nothing, and gay couples are harmed for no reason other than to support a harmful but traditional irrational prejudice.

Ad hominem attacks remain the refuge of those with no argument on the merits.

Thanks for admitting you have nothing to support your claims.

Think of the horrors same sex marriage would bring to prisons; if you think prison rape is bad, wait for forced prison marriages.

Or perhaps just out of lame excuses and is now turning to rape and the silly idea of forced marriage, ignoring prisons are not required to house married couples together.

Evidence exists both through clinical studies as well as through the personal testimony of millions of gay and straight people around the world who will testify they have no choice over to whom they are emotionally, romantically, and physically attracted. Bisexual people sometimes confuse the issue as it takes some of them a long time to realize that while they experience attractions to some members of both sexes, they have no choice over being attracted. Like gay and straight people, they only have a choice of whether to act on their attractions.

Ironically, much of the research showing orientation is not a choice, comes from failed efforts to change it. Not only have such efforts shown efforts to change orientation are not successful, but that they are often harmful to the point of self destructive behavior including suicide.

"Contrary to claims of sexual orientation change advocates and practitioners, there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation," said Judith M. Glassgold, PsyD, chair of the task force. "Scientifically rigorous older studies in this area found that sexual orientation was unlikely to change due to efforts designed for this purpose. Contrary to the claims of SOCE practitioners and advocates, recent research studies do not provide evidence of sexual orientation change as the research methods are inadequate to determine the effectiveness of these interventions." Glassgold added: "At most, certain studies suggested that some individuals learned how to ignore or not act on their homosexual attractions. Yet, these studies did not indicate for whom this was possible, how long it lasted or its long-term mental health effects. Also, this result was much less likely to be true for people who started out only attracted to people of the same sex."

Based on this review, the task force recommended that mental health professionals avoid misrepresenting the efficacy of sexual orientation change efforts when providing assistance to people distressed about their own or others' sexual orientation.
