Another frequently used, yet either ignorant or dishonest tactic. The age restriction clearly provides a legitimate governmental interest in protecting children. While we can argue about were to draw the line, only child abusers would argue for removing the restriction entirely.

Gender is a very different restriction. We don't restrict people from marriage based on gender alone, and there is no reason to restrict marriage to one of each. It provides no legitimate governmental interest.
