The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

A woman can pull the trigger just as easily as a man can.
Hardly. Your comments are so stupid, it is evidence you wouldn't be able to comprehend an answer, and no one else needs one.
Snicker.
Yep, you just admitted you couldn't answer the questions.

Courtesy & custom aren't reasons to deny the right to marry to same-sex couples.
Yes, women should have to register for the draft.
I'm pro-family as well, which is why I support treating ALL families equal under the law, including those families headed by same-sex couples.
You're just not for equal treatment for those who have not chosen to start a family yet. You want to keep them from accumulating capital because you've taking on responsibilities and you envy those who would wait until they are ready for them.

Maybe you think you've done the right thing to procreate when you have. Maybe you just couldn't tie a knot in it! Maybe you're just another lying #%$#%$ who just wants gubbermint money for sharing your bedroom full time. But no matter the case, you are denying others the right to choose when they can afford a family by endorsing financial discrimination against the unmarried.

That is ALL that is going on here.

My MARRIAGE to my WIFE is very real. Have your preschool teacher explain to you why the adults don't want you butting into the grownup's conversation.

Sounds good. Let's not forget plural marriage families.

KiMare, arguments like this one are beyond juvenile.
Equating marriage, which is a protection of the law in every state in the union, with public restrooms that are segregated by gender, doesn't really prove much of anything. Except for, perhaps, that you have a dubious grasp of reality and reason.
Would you care to join the adults now?
It illustrates the point that the state can and make distinctions based on gender/sex.

Clearly you have no clue what equal treatment under the law means.
Men are treated like men, and women like women.
Equal treatment doesn't mean women have to be forced to use urinals.
Nor be treated like men.
That probably explains why you bigots keep losing these lawsuits based on equal treatment.
"Bigots"?...this from a person who gets his panties in a bunch at the mention of the word "polygamy"

Good, I get dumb and dumber with one stone.

Normal people know that it is not just genders peeing that is a n issue, but sleeping and showering together that is a problem. And that says nothing about battlefield conditions.

Normal people know that it is not just pulling a trigger that women contend with men about. It is the physical and mental ability to contend with war that real men don't let women face.

You both prove your depraved idiocy over and over.

Do us all a favor and STAY OUT of the debate. Nobody needs your stereotyping claims posted as scientific fact. It's hard enough to simply classify a percentage of the gay population as possessing a minor behavioral disorder without you crashing into the debate with lunacy that gays don't give a rip about anything but themselves.

First, NOBODY here seems to give a rip about anything but themselves. Second, if everything is so "obvious" then go ahead and tell us about the obvious, as in science obvious, not dumb-@ss Venus and Mars idiocy!

If you want to talk about sex in the military, you could talk about all the irresponsible tricks people pull to get out of doing their jobs, like shooting one's self in the foot to avoid combat. That would get a person dishonorably discharged or worse in days past. Nowadays, a person can get pregnant and BOOM!, selfish Christians think the world has to sacrifice a cow in the name of motherhood!

YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!!!!!

Can I make things ANY MORE CLEAR? You CAN'T have it both ways!!! Just like gays can't have it both ways. Either accept civil unions that have no basis on sexuality or forget the whole goodie-two-shoes show! We don't have to support anyone's sexual habits and I certainly should not be paying for anyone's breeding!

IS IT PERFECTLY CLEAR YET??

We'll do that when the rest of the country agrees to it. Promise. Until then, we'll go for equality under the law.

Until then, I promise to have homosexuality defined as a medical condition, barring gays from active duty military service, and barring them from any kind of state protection other than as part of those with disabilities.

Really! No joking! I consider this equivalent to the temperance movement. People got their stupid on as if it's going to change the political landscape. They won't like that change. Putting it right will cost you much more in the long run.

"Separate housing and bathrooms ARE based solely on gender. "
Are housing and bathrooms protections of the law?
Is marriage a protection of the law?
Do you see the difference?

If not, then that is your shortcoming. Well, one of them anyway.

I am not judging falsely. I am advocating that we follow the mandates of our constitution and provide all people within a state's jurisdiction equal protection of the law.

How is your hunt going for a compelling state interest served by limiting marriage to opposite sex couples that would render such a restriction constitutional?

Given your regular return to aspecific accusations, mindless off topic drivel, and obsession with public restrooms, one can only infer that it is not going well.

No, it would simply require the government to offer same sex couples the same legal rights and protections they offer opposite sex couples.

What else would change when government stops seeing men and women, boys and girls and starts ignoring gender differences?
The only thing that would change is that same sex couples would have access to the same legal rights as everyone else.

Pietro, can you offer a compelling governmental interest served by limiting legal marriage to opposite sex couples that would render such a restriction constitutional?
