Now you are confusing yourself?

VV, you lie again!
"Children are to all marriages, as sheep are to all farmers.(not all farmers raise sheep)."
Got caught with your pants down again...
However, the real question is, why do ss couples find it so hard to establish their own identity?
It's not about rights, those can and have been addressed in other ways.
It's not about family, most people like (and want) having their one natural mother and father together and raising them. A gay couple is never more than one of those, and always missing a gender.
It's not about acceptance, this forum and history are evidence that many will never accept that ss couples are the same as marriage. The only result of forcing that on people is a greater resentment, not acceptance.
You need to ask yourself why it is impossible for you to never successfully counter that inner sense of sexual brokenness.
Oh, and everyone knows exactly what the apple and walnut tree analogy means.
This means that not all marriages involve children and not all farmers involve sheep. Very simple... Very clear...
Same-gender couples have no difficulty finding their own identity. We find someone who we fall in love with and wish to spend our lives with. We want to marry and combine our lives. Couldn't be more simple.
Not all same-gender couples want children, just as not all opposite-gender couples want children. And since children aren't a prerequisite for marriage, it's ridiculous to continue to bring them up.
Same-gender couples would like widespread "respect" for their relationships, but we're not going to hang out and wait for that to happen. We certainly haven't waited for widespread acceptance of homosexuality in order to live our lives openly.
It's kind of like how neo-conservative, right wing, religious extremists aren't widely accepted in this country. That hasn't stopped people like you from living your life.
For me to "counter" what you call my "inner sexual brokenness", I would have to agree that I am "sexually broken". This is not a concept that I agree with. I am not sexually broken. Scientists have proven it. The medical community agrees. You're the only one living in some fantasy world where you and people like you believe homosexuals are broken.
Oh... And the apple tree, walnut tree analogy has never been explained. You keep using it. No one, to my knowledge, has yet explained what it has to do with same-gender marriage; not even you.
