I support laws that allow same-sex partnerships, but NOT redefining what constitutes marriage. "Marriage is between a man and woman, NO exceptions."

who cares, how is dude gay dudes getting married going to affect you its not. The thing that pisses me off is when gays get insulted when I use the word fa-g...get over it you hom-o. your a hom-o, you know your a hom-o so get over it. The word fa-g is what straight dudes use, just like when gay dudes say "fabulous"

I am a homosexual, and I am a human being who deserves her rights just as much as the next person.

love is love and i feel as though no one, not even the government, has the right to interfere nor tell those who want to marry the same sex that they are wrong.

Who are the people opposing to say who people can love? Let everyone love the person for what they are, and nothing else. This is the 21st century, lets move on and support gay marriage. Love is love. Marriage is marriage. People are people.

I can understand that gay people wants the same rights as a married couple. To me that's where common law marriage is good. But to get married is a sacrament to God. I'm not saying gay people don't believe in God but isn't it like a slap in the face? Just sayin

Gay marriage shouldn't be an issue! We are all endowed some unalienable rights and these very rights are being oppressed. America is supposed to be the land of the free!

Our country has a long history of oppression; it wasn't too long ago that people of different races couldn't marry, and that black people and women couldn't vote. How much longer is it going to take for us Americans to learn and understand that we are all equal; that we all deserve the same rights that everyone else has, no matter your race, sexuality, gender, and religious belief. I would think that we, as a nation, would be able to look back and actually see and learn from our past mistakes. How many more people do we have to belittle, oppress, and count as second class citizens before we come to the realization that we all want the same thing. Happiness.

And in the end, how does it affect you? How in the world does the marriage of two men or of two woman come in contact with the foundations of your personal life? It doesn't. This is for the acknowledgement of those who are still left behind, for those who are told they can't because they are different; for those whose voices cannot be heard because they are drowned out by the bigotry, double standards, and religious involvement in politics that this country suffers from.

I grew up with my grandparents, along with my sister, brother, and my mother. So much that my grandmother and grandfather were parents to me as much as my real mother and father are, despite being divorced. But the one day I will never forget is when I found out that my grandfather was racist towards black people. I cried; I couldn't believe that such a strong, protective, and loving family man, such as my grandfather, could be racist towards any race. How could someone think that a person could be defined by the color of their skin? I couldn't understand how anyone could be racist. I cried for hours that day, and I will never forget it. But one thing that I will always be proud of my grandfather is that he knew he was wrong. He was always trying to reach out and better himself, because he KNEW that his preconceived notions from his childhood were not only wrong, but disgraceful.

So for those of you who are against the equalization of marriage for gays and lesbians, think of the affect it will have on your children and grandchildren. I know that despite my grandfather's bigotry, and that if he was still living today, he would be there to support me, not just because I am his grandson, but because I am gay. I know it would've been hard at first, but like his racism, he knew he would be wrong to think me any less a person than himself or anyone else, and even more wrong to think that I wouldn't deserve the same rights as any heterosexual individual.

So, before you decide to vote to ban and disallow gay marriage, think about the effect you will have on your children in the future. And if you don't think before you vote, and if you do not support gay marriage, then you deserve all the ridicule you will receive, especially the ridicule from your children because THEY will be the ones who will be hurt the most by your discrimination and injustice towards others. They will be, if not more, ashamed of you than I was of my grandfather and still am. They will probably still love you, but your image will be forever stained and you will never be able to live up to the amount you potentially could have in their eyes if you would have just been fair, and unbiased towards those who different. Your discrimination is what will lead to your own downfall, it will be the source of countless tears, and when history is written, you will be the one on the wrong side of the fence. You will be the ones who will be seen as disgraceful to our great nation's name, and the children of the future will be forever ashamed that the flag of the United States ever flown above your heads; that you twisted the Constitution of the United States to suit your bigotry and malicious intent.

I'm a lesbian and being different from what used to be "the norm" shouldn't mean that we're treated differently

I am transgender, FTM.
What's wrong with being in love with somebody and wanting to make it permanent? I think marriage should be showing somebody you love that you want to be together forever.
And it shouldn't matter what gender you are.
I'm just a normal guy with an opinion.

Mind u some of my best friends are gay and most gay people love me. I may not agree with their lifestyle but I don't judge them. That's not my job. We've talked about the marriage issue. Some of them feel they should be able to get married some don't. Like I said prior... I can understand wanting the same benefit as a married couples, who wouldn't. But marriage is a sacrament to God. Maybe not everyone believes but their is a lot that do. My other problem with it is I don't want it to be taught to my kids that its ok. I have my own morals and values I want my kids to learn without society polluting them.

Love is love. We are all human. We are stuck on this earth. If someone wants to spend their life with someone , why not? I think people judge others too much. We are all equal. stop being ignorant and start accepting .
