Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

yes cause I'm gay so I'd like to support my fellow homosexuals.

Personally, even though I'm such a cheese ball, I just don't find myself keen on getting married or anything - maybe in the future it'll change who knows. I just want someone I can trust my entire heart and body with and be happy with someone I love; being married or not doesn't change that.

that said I fucking love weddings! It's a good excuse to dress up and it's really beautiful and cute too I guess

Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

IMO if you're for gay rights you should be for the right of gays to marry. The whole "I've got nothing against gays but it's important to preserve the sanctity of marriage" thing is based on latent homophobia. Anybody who has nothing against gays and believes in the sanctity of marriage should applaud gay people's wish to marry, as opposed to more informal and noncommittal forms of cohabitation.

But I made NO distinction between gay, straight, and even polygamous unions. I think all (with exceptions like to prevent a golddigger like Anna-Nicole "marrying" for the inheritance; maybe unless there's an ironclad pre-nup the others affected agree to in advance) should distinguish between legal union and "the M word".

In other words, my "No" also applies to straight marriage (other than ppl "sanctifying" a civil union too). I largely agree with Beat's post #30 ITT; and hope that Suissie would also include under exploitative ones... a Convicted Conman like Herr Hofmann preying upon a professional athlete like the Peppermint Puzzle.

Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

Yes of course. I think the "no because I don't support any marriage" response is even more annoying than the actual homophobic responses. Straight marriage exists and it's not going away. The discussion is about discrimination, not the institution itself.

homosexuals can marry opposite sex too, so no discrimination there. marriage is not about love, it's an institution for manufacturing children...

Re: Do you support Gay Marriage?

Yes. Mainly because with marriage comes a fair amount of legal privileges, such as power of attorney, that gay and lesbian couple are currently deprived of. And I mean gay rights are human rights, and its almost an abuse of our human rights to say that two people cannot marry for what ever reason. That being said I have no desire to marry anyone, man or woman

Seems a tad extreme. I know lots of good marriages. Lots of bad ones too, but the point is that it's what you make of it that counts. Blaming marriage for society's ills is not much better than blaming extra-marital sex.

seriously now?


kind of like how all the people in Murfreesboro, North Carolina protesting the construction of a mosque weren't actually discriminating against Muslims, because Muslims are free to go to a Christian church?

also, for lots of people, marriage is about love.

demonstrating is a basic right, not discrimination. by the way, try to gay-marry in a mosque

if you look at statistics, marriage looks like money-making device for many women. they marry men who make much more than them, then divorce and take their money. so "sanctity of marriage" is long gone and poor argument against "gay marriage"...
