Technically gay marriage has always been legal, as long as its one gay man and one gay woman. What those states did was remove the opposite sex requirement. Once that is done, is there any reason to prohibit same sex siblings from marrying? After all if SSM is legal in a state that allows first cousins to marry, allowing same sex siblings is that much different.

One last thought, I donít seek out people in polygamous, incestuous, or other forms of relationships and berate and harass them with the notion that they are monstrosities, perverts, fruitloops, etc. Do you?
Too funny, it's my hubby's birthday today (and he has yet to get his present).

<quoted text>I have placed the challenge and all you guys do is blah blah.....You are prejudiced and hateful against all gays who do not agree with your. There are 100s of thousands of ex-gays, and all you do is say that they are denying themselves.
Drug addiction, alcoholism and nicotine addiction are behaviors to and yes they are deep seat and unchangeable.
Suicide with gays is unchangeable, so should gays give in.
Stop making up crap.
Every single gay that I know in real life and on Topix were abused as children.
IT IS YOU WHO ARE TRYING TO TELL GAYS AND STRAIGHTS HOW THEY SHOULD BE TREATED AND HOW THEY SHOULD TREAT.
Now, liar, you tell me when I decided that marriage was one man and one woman. If that is what you mean by treatment? I must be 10,000 or 150,000 years old depending on your beliefs.
What gives you the right to tell a child that she can not have sex with a 40 year old man? Tell me.
What gives you the right to tell a woman she can not marry and have sex with a horse? Tell me.
What gives you the right to tell a man that he can not marry the 4 mothers of his children? You tell me.
No, you want to do all the telling, and I simply wish to exercise my one vote and have gays STFU and exercise their one vote.
WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR OTHER GAYS? YOU DON'T.
First, gays will never STFU; not for you, not for anybody. We are a very mouthy people.

Second, if you are advocating for adults to have sex with children, we can stop the discussion right here. Same for people having sex with animals. You are one sick ticket.

Third, your idea that the history of marriage has always involved "one man and one woman" couldn't be more wrong. Polygamy has been common in the past and is not unheard of today. Furthermore, history is dotted with same-gender marriage. You guys always seem to forget that.

Fourth, I can think of many people who were abused as children who did not turn out gay. If there were a causal relationship between child abuse and homosexuality, it would have been determined long ago. You know as well as I do that NO ONE knows why we are gay. And for that matter, WHO CARES why we're gay? It doesn't negatively impact our lives. We can function--work, recreated, contribute to society, and live a full and happy life. The only problems we have with our sexual orientation is when we are exposed to people like YOU!

Finally, I would LOVE to know where you get your figures that there are hundreds of thousands of ex-gays. Seriously... If changing a person's sexual orientation were that easy, I'm sure many self-loathing homosexuals would have gone that route rather than risk facing a society that treats them like crap.

You are a straight person (allegedly) who believes he knows what it means to be gay. You think you understand us. You have NO comprehension of what it means to be gay.

If you want to know about homosexuality, ask a f--king gay person! Stop making up crap as you go along!

You know, I have a very LARGE circle of gay friends. Those of us in the arts tend to know lots of gays.

And yet, I don't know ANY gays that were abused as children. Not a one.

How can it POSSIBLY be that you only know homosexuals who were abused as children, and I don't know any?

Do you happen to live in West Virginia?

Homosexual defined:
homo as : any of a genus (Homo) of hominids that includes modern humans (H. sapiens) and several extinct related species (as H. erectus and H. habilis)
sexual as : Of, relating to, involving, or characteristic of sex, sexuality, the sexes, or the sex organs and their functions.
The word homosexual actually means sexual activities among humans, as opposed to animals having sex with animals. So, there can never be homosexual behavior in other species other than homo sapiens.

Will you listen: http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/former-presi...
You say that homosexuality does not negatively impact your lives, but 70% of gays undergo psychotherapy for mental pathological issues and 91% OF GAYS admit to contemplating suicide. 80% of AIDS patients are gays. That sounds negative to me. Pedophiles and rapists can say the exact same thing that you just posted.
You are right, most people who claim to support you gays would not spend 2 minutes in a room with you. I on the other hand have lesbians and gay friends, which I have gone to dinner, parties and had in my house. So,if you think your problem is when you are exposed to me, then you are living a gay lie, and you can not intimidate me into your uninformed position.
It is irrelevant what you think being gay means, it is a behavior and not a race. You have no idea what I know, and I have talked to gays about your mono-ideology bias. Have you talked to a rapist or gang banger about what it is to be them. Do you think a cancer patient can cure himself and that a doctor must have cancer? What about an alcoholic, must the doctor be an alcoholic?
You and your little world. You want to fit me into a box which you can hate. Well, I have a close lesbian friend, I have know her for 4 years and GUESS WHAT, SHE IS NO LONGER AN ALCOHOLIC.
Firstly, after reading your two responses I can already tell that you no nothing about the topic of homosexuality or same-gender marriage.

Secondly, you come across as a lunatic. Your arguments are baseless and therefore meaningless.

My recommendation would be for you to see someone for your obsession about other people's lives.

Finally, you're just not worth my time or energy. As someone who lives in free country, you can go ahead and spout your ignorance. You represent a fringe group of people.

With your tirades, you remind me of the story of Rumpelstiltskin. At the end of the story, when he doesn't get his way, he stomps his right foot so far into the ground that it sank in up to his waist; then in an attempt to extricate himself he grabs his left foot with both hands and pulls so hard that he rips himself in two.

That's your future, bub... Gays are real. Gays are normal. We've been around since the beginning. We are gaining equal rights through the same manner as other minorities. And there isn't one thing you can do to change what's happening.

<quoted text>Based on your one-sided and unemphatic appearance, I doubt that those gays would tell you. If so, I would love to hear from them if that is the case. I am open to that possibility.
I have lived in the huge Los Angeles area and I am often in North Hollywood. I am also in the film and modeling industry, so I have I am sure more opportunities to know than you do.
I had a friend, she was a lesbian, she swore that her sister was abused but not her. Well, she almost walked in on me as I was in the shower. I covered up and asked here what would have happened if she had walked in 2 minutes earlier. She said that would have fainted from the shock of seeing a male nude body. I told her that she was abused. We talked and she realized that she was and she had been blocking it.
I also was posting to a straight female, she told me that she had two gay friends commit suicide and she never knew they were troubled.
I talked to people and I sit down and talk to get to know them. Most people talk about sports, movies, arts, partying and stuff.
I had another female friend, straight, she was abused by her dad, she told me and we talked. She had never told any one else, not her mom, siblings or other friends.
So, you tell me, why don't these people share intimate things with you?
Ah... Now we are learning a little more about you...

1.) You frequent North Hollywood

2.) You are in the "film and modeling industry"

3.) You surround yourself with gay and lesbian people

My conclusion is that you are very likely gay--bisexual at least. You come here to be able to talk to other gay people. It's like a "virtual gay bar" to you.

If you just take a few more steps, you will be fully out of your closet.

The future can be a time from now. I don't go to church so I don't really care how many are leaving and SSM is not a relious factor to me so don't even go there.

Yeah, just what I thought, you donít have the balls or vagina to address my question regarding your inner lesbian. Looks like your epi-marker claptrap will have to be retired from your repertoire. Also, youíre absolutely correct (I know I canít believe Iím saying it either) we do have the right and opportunity to develop our own relationships and rights. In 13 states and counting we call it Marriage. It's really not complicated.
I tend not to respond to stupid ad homoan attacks. Sorry.

Moreover, gays are NOT developing 'their own relationship and rights'. They are trying to impose an imposter relationship on marriage.

At every level of identity, it is obvious they are a poor counterfeit, a clear fake and a silly imitation.

Everyone knows that the homosexual demand for marriage is a vain attempt to demand that their sexual handicap be accepted as normal.

Pretty funny form someone whose marriage is "sanctioned" by your imaginary playmate.

As long as you believe in magical trees, talking snakes and a rib woman, I donít think anyone will be paying much attention to your opinion of morality
