I care because denial hurts everybody.
Moreover we are talking about the most essential relationships of humanity, marriage and family.
The only thing you have is a friendship. Numerous relationships qualify.
Happy Valentines!
Funny, most of my friendships don't come with making out, sex, and "where is this heading" serious talks.

I am certainly most curious how this "denial" is hurting you specifically, don't be afraid to leave out all the painful details of what you must surely suffer through daily.

OOh, careful! You might be hitting a little too close to home regarding s-s relationships and denial....

My Kimare does have issues, if you know what I'm saying.

Today is always the day.
But today, in particular, should be the day.
Are you going to make today "the day"?

While procreation has never been a requirement for marriage, even that irrational excuse ignores the fact that gay people can and do reproduce, and are raising children either biologically related or adopted. Denial of equal treatment under the law provides nothing to opposite sex couple families. It only harms same sex couple families needlessly.

Marriage is a fundamental right of the individual. The only eligibility requirement is being human. Reasonable restrictions include age, ability to demonstrate informed consent, and not being closely related or currently married. Gay people qualify.

Gay people are asking to be treated equally under the laws in the remaining states that do not yet recognize their marriages, and by the federal government.

The desire to discriminate on the bases of gender provides no legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of this fundamental right.

It's already flawed for trying to combine homosexual marriage and having children as a single issue when it is not. If you cannot even understand why these are separate issues why would I waste my time trying to pick apart your stupid analogy, which is just you repeating the same points again and again only using different words this time and fails to make any points whatsoever.
You have TWO mistakes! There is no such thing as a gay 'marriage', and of course it is impossible for them to have children.

Only a heterosexual couple can, and the best setting for that is marriage.

Who gives you the right to eliminate children from the equation, just because your relationship is desolate and barren of them?

The analogy is perfect, because it takes a simple example from nature. You understand it perfectly, you just don't like it, do you.

Well, here's where your opinion is, yet again, irrelevant.

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay couples are the picture of defective failure. Mating behavior gone abusive with NOTHING to show for it.

This is not an opinion, it is simple reality. No vote changed that. Or ever will.

Smile.
