Why do you discriminate against people of polyamorous orientation?
They deserve the same rights as you, hypocrite!!
Argument: According to the theory of Genetic Imperative, many men are biologically hardwired or oriented to feel attraction toward multiple women, yet social values and socialization pressures require men to repress expression of these innate impulses (this is true across all socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural groups- think Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods etc.). Since a predominant number of men have inborn sexual tendencies that are incompatible with a monogamous lifestyle, by no fault of their own, marriage ought to be progressively redefined as a socially approved relationship between an undefined number of consenting spouses.

That's true, polyamorous orientation has been around as long as the homosexual.

It doesn't "mater," it's just discussion. It's odd that you wouldn't just say either way, though. Maybe you should seek therapy if you aren't comfortable.
Again, what indicated to you that I was mad? If my previous post had been presented as a question on the SAT, and you indicated by multiple choice answer that the author was "mad," you'd get that question wrong.
I've already stated my position on polygamy.
Again. Why does it matter if I am gay? Did you think implying that I am gay just like you was an insult? Is there something wrong with gay? Please tell us about it.

You're really bad at this.

I've never expressed my thoughts or opinions of polygamists or polygamy at any time. Not once. Why do you ASSume you are privy to some emotional status I have concerning either?

No need to answer, the question was rhetorical. Your need to be a jack*ss is already fully documented through your posts.

Polygamy has been around and has been much more widely practiced around the world throughout history than SSM ever was.

Yet now SSM is becoming legal. But polygamy can still land you in prison. Why do these clowns insist we now have "marriage equality"? Why do they celebrate polygamy's illegality? Why are they not hypocrites?

They won't say.

I have a dream that someday men and women will be allowed to walk naked in public, and our children will get to witness women flaunting their unclothed bodies, men kissing multiple wives, women kissing multiple husbands, and men kissing multiple husbands, and celebrating their unbridled freedom and identity in public processions where display of physical affection and nudity engender exalting pride. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know today, that we, as a people, will get to the libertarian land!

Rosenblum, Emma. Scott Wiener on San Francisco's Ban on Public Nudity. Bloomberg Businessweek, 29 Nov. 2012. Web. 13 June. 2013.‹
http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-11-...
“We’ve always had public nudity in San Francisco—in our parades, beaches, and street fairs, as well as the random naked person wandering through the neighborhood. Public nudity was part of the quirkiness and fabric of the Castro. About two years ago that changed, and it became a seven-days-a-week kind of thing. Every day there were a few, or more than a few, naked men displaying themselves at Castro Farmers’ Market and elsewhere. It created a lot of tension and anger among our residents and, of course, our businesses also weren’t fans. There’d be lines of families waiting to get into the Castro Theatre, and naked guys would be walking around with their genitals at kids’ eye levels.”

I agree. It's a terrible thing for one American to say to another "You don't matter". Just because they are wary of a tremendous social change. Someday maybe someone will marginalize them too. Then they will scream and vomit.

Where is the rule that if you mention polygamy in a discussion of marriage, you have to be actively supporting it?

Polygamy is a perfectly relevant topic in any discussion of marriage. Your fear of it's mere mention speaks volumes.

Some posters here simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts at censorship.

I have been invited to my neighbors' wedding. Two great guys. I am shopping for a present and look forward to a fun wedding.

I don't want to enter a poly relationship. I don't want to "go ahead, take that swing. hire the attornies, file the suits, pay the money." I simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts at censorship.

Hang in there Frankie. Someday the masses will come to recognize your innate orientation and enact anti-discrimination laws to protect you and your family. I'm flabbergasted as to why these so-called "progressives," fail to recognize that their cause and your cause are one of the same, ideologically and ethically speaking.

Here's an article that may provide you some consolation:
