To hamper a proper growth under a duality would be wrong. Marriage, as I said before, was designed to bind two people a MAN and a WOMAN, long enough to rear a child within the confines of a duality. Gay people simply can't do this. You can't have the duality that I speak of in a gay relationship. It's not there. A man contains certain things a woman doesn't, and a child needs BOTH.
I assume by duality you mean the traditional gender roles. In which case, I'd like to point out to you that a lot of gay men emulate female characteristics.
To make this short and simple: One has no idea what homosexuality is until he is a homosexual, just as mentally healthy people have no idea what schizophrenia is truly like until they have been afflicted with it.
I can't tell you why I'm not attracted to the opposite sex, but I can tell you that my sexuality is just as natural as yours is. I'll spare you the details, but to be quite honest I feel the same way about straight men sometimes. How could they be sexually attracted to a woman?
I understand I'm not going to change your opinions, but please bear in my mind that it is very easy to be on the giving end of ridicule and judgement, but it's not so easy receiving it.
One of the most irritating arguments I've ever heard regarding homosexuality is that it is "unnatural." You could argue the same thing about almost all of our civilisation. It's natural for man to live to 50, maybe 60 given good diet and a few strokes of luck. Your beloved computer is unnatural, as are all the video games and MP3s and so forth on it. Your clothes are unnatural; feel like tearing 'em all off and running into the forest to pick fleas off the back of a chimp now? Of course not. The only reason you aren't being called a bastion of satan and a sinner is because a long time ago, a bunch of stodgy, uncomfortable old men decided that their God was down with clothing, cooking food, living in cities, and generally enjoying the benefits of society as we know it, but that two (wo)men can't develop a physical and emotional bond to which one could attach the word love (or Liebe or amour or agape or grá or. . .). Marriage may have originally been intended as the bond necessary to raise a child, but that doesn't mean that we should exclude a group because some of us find it distasteful.
There are two logical arguments against the legalization of gay marriage that I have heard (if you've got another one, please fill me in):
Religious reasons- Jesus done told me that the queers ought'n't get hitched. Good and well, I'll accept that when the government makes the benefits for marriage EQUAL to those of civil unions, so as to stop discriminating against one belief. That, or if we're going to maintain marriage as a religious institution, then maybe it's time the government stopped paying people to do it in the first place.
The child-rearing theory- I know perfectly reasonable, kind, caring individuals who were raised by two parents of the same sex. As a matter of fact, I've had more run-ins with the ignorant, the incompassionate, the spiteful, and the assholes coming from the hetero camp. I think saying that a child needs the duality of a male-female relationship is rather absurd; a child needs somebody to care for them, to love them and teach them. The only problem I've ever seen a child of a gay couple experience in dealing with any matters of social behaviour is when a narrow-minded, preachy hetero starts tearing into them for what their parents do.
Is it natural? Who fucking cares? Was I born bisexual? I don't know. Maybe it's just my preference. You have yours, I have mine. Whether or not I think Cameron Mizell is the sexiest motherfucker to ever grace the stage is unrelated to my ability (really, lack thereof) to raise a child or be a contributing member of society. You've got your opinion, and that's all good and well, but the right of one person to hold his opinion isn't the same as maintaining the bias against the homosexual community (such that it is) by barring us from the same rights as straight couples. When I grow up, I want my biggest concern to be what the gay mafia will do to me for letting the world know about our coveted agenda (note to self: keep practicing "I Will Survive"), not how to deal with the millions of worst-case scenarios that a married couple has more legal ability to deal with in a timely and less painful manner.
I'll believe in anything if you'll just believe in anything

Marriage is for kids and homosexuals can't have them.
Wha...? Your saying that marriage is only for the purpose of reproduction??
Ok Aynjell, please let me know when you get married. At that point you should ask your wife if she is truely happy with you or if she feels like she just made a big mistake...
(hopefully she would find out right away that you married her because she can pump out babies for you...Since that is the entire purpose of marriage and all).
Wife: "What! All I am to you is a fucking baby machine?!?! I thought you married me because you love me!"
Aynjell: "Love...Whats Love?"

So fuck open mindedness. Homosexuals are sinners.
Yeah, like all your stiff-cocked - uhm, sorry - stiff-necked puritan christian padres. Those who fuck their male acolytes up the ass. Oh sorry, right, there are no female acolytes, as it's not natural for women standing on the altar before god.
Marriage is not for homosexuals, and it's not for asshats either. It's for people who want to raise children. If you can't wrap your minds around that, marriage is lost. Fuck... all this is about is money. Who cares about saving a few dollars? Give them something else. Homosexuals are not fit for marriage, and never were. Marriage is for kids and homosexuals can't have them.
Of course religion should tell us what to do, not the government. So we dont need a government at all, right? Let's switch over to some despotic rule scheme, were women have to do what men tell them to do, go back to Stone Age (but then, they probably were NOT that biased).
There is a perfectly good and functional system here...
... which I cant see anywhere. Maybe in your dream, kid.
Another reason to NOT marry christian. I gonna marry in the paganistic ways of my ancestors.
beards are cool. every villain has one!
