Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

In terms of the movement and activism I'm neither for it or against it.My personal opinions is in favor of people being able to have state-sanctioned marriages with whomever they want regardless of gender

Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

I support the concept of civil union with pretty much every legal right that a regular marriage has. I am just against using the same lexical word. I'd leave the "marriage" word to its traditional meaning.

That said, I do not really support the concept of straight marriage either. I do not see why registering your love with state bureaucracy should affect your life in any way.

Yes, I used to support women's equality and interracial marriage, but now those values are just too conformist and mainstream. :dumbass: :hipsternonsense:

How stupid! Should governments continue to discriminate against gay couples and prevent their happiness just so you can feel more contrarian?

Gagsquet is just trolling. I'm sure he wants to marry his bf someday.

"I think" being the operative phrase here. How do you decide that two people in a committed relationship should be the only type allowed? What is a good argument against three or four more people in a committed relationship?

1. It's obvious that group marriage is quite different than a two-person marriage. I don't see how anyone could deny this.

2. There are pragmatic legal issues concerning group marriage. Current law can easily accommodate a two-person same-sex marriage. But if more people are added into the equation, then many laws/benefits would have to be changed.

3. The most cogent argument for same-sex marriage doesn't rely on the truth of the premise that "people should be able to marry whomever they love". It relies on the premises that same-sex marriage (and homosexuality) isn't inherently harmful and denying same-sex marriage rights is denying a group of people (gay people) equal rights. I don't believe that an equal rights argument can be made w.r.t. polygamous marriage.

I do support polygamous marriage. But there seems to be a (widely held) belief that one's support of same-sex marriage commits them to supporting polygamous marriage. That's not at all true.

Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE REALLY:

NO LOVE BETWEEN TWO CONSENTING ADULTS IS WRONG AS LONG AS THEY NOT BETROTHED TO ANOTHER.. (NO, I DON'T MEAN FAMILY MEMBERS!)..i mean it is L-O-V-E!

THE IDEA THAT OTHER CITIZENS HAVE THE SAY IN WHO CAN OR CAN'T GET MARRIED IS RIDICULOUS.. I MEAN IT IS "love"!...

50 to 100 hundred years from now society will look back like they do now on the civil rights and the civil rights movement on gay equality and marriage like " what were those people thinking back in 2013!"...of course in america of all places, everyone should be equal!" DUH!...
