You have no evidence that it isn't.

Yes, I do!! I know that a heterosexual man can not choose to be gay even for a weekend, no way is that even remotely possible. That is evidence that sexual orientation is not a choice.

But then you are a solosexual, so you have no experience in the matter.

Well, first you have to have latent homosexual tenancies, then also be homophobic with a less than average IQ.

Marriage is equal, anyone can quailfy for the governments marriage benefit package by marrying someone of opposite gender.

By your reasoning then; welfare, foodstamps, free school lunches, disabled person parking spots, education assistance, affirmative action, unemployment checks, etc... are not equal, also. Because not everyone gets it, should they want it regardless of their income.

All government hand-outs have a qualifying standard, marriage included.

Marriage is between a man and a woman.
Sexual orientation is a choice.

As far as the AIDs epidemic, it was not strictly within the homosexual community. AIDs was actually just as common among heterosexuals, but because of the anti-gay beliefs of the time the spread of AIDs was pinned on homosexuals (and still is, clearly). Considering the ratio of people who are straight and people who are gay, there are probably way more straight people spreading AIDs. The reason AIDs came out around the time more homosexuals started coming out was because of the sexual revolution and greater acceptance of sex in general within the American culture.
Know you're history, you're statistics, you're facts.
Lets see, it was originally called GRIDS (Gay Related...) in the U.S.A. All cases of GRIDS/AIDS for almost 2 years were exclusively gay men. Then it surfaced in the heterosexual community via, needle sharing, blood donations/transfussions, and bi-sexual activity. which happened to coincided with the beginning of the PC Era, so the name was changed to AIDS. Even today the part of the U.S. community with the largest number of new cases is gay men.

So you would want to deny shared health benefits to those who (according to you, ignorantly) would need it most because of GRAIDS??

Do you know what the difference between GRAIDS and AIDS is in the terms of treat meant course of infection?... here, just for you; NOTHING!!! THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!!! The AIDS gays get is the same AIDS that homosexuals get. AND you can get it in a number of ways besides sex .... bites, scratches, dirty needles, blood transfusions.

Allowing shared health benefits would help our whole society in fighting this disease, not just the gays.

Grids/Aids started with gay men having anal sex and through blood donations, bi-sexual activity, needle sharing it spread to others. That is why there is over 2 years gap in the first cases of it in gay men and others. Thanks to the homosexual men Aids now has almost no boundries.

All of those benefits have a standard of NEED.

Please tell me what need that straight married couples have that necessitates them being given benefits.

Those with the higher risk due to their choice of behavior should pay more, just like smokers and others.

The cost having a raising a child and future tax payer. Even if only half the married hetrosexual couples have 2-3 children that grow up to be tax payers for 40-50+ years the government comes out ahead. So what is the likely return on married homosexual couples rasing future tax payers...

So you support lower insurance rates for lesbians, whose sex is less likely to transmit STDs then straight sex?

Millions of straight couples are unable or unwilling to have children. Why would we give them benefits for something that's not going to happen?

The government doesn't give food stamps to people with 20 million dollars.

Married gay couples can adopt or have children through artificial means to raise future tax payers.

Take 1000 hetrosexual couples and 1000 homosexual couples, now what percentage of each will produce future tax payers.

Married gay couples reduce children to being nothing more than commodities. Pretty close to human traffiking.
