In response to some of the other arugments: If people who can't procreate naturally (such as a gay couple) shouldn't get married, than neither should straight couples who are for some reason infertile. There are plenty of heterosexual marriages that don't produce offspring; this is accepted, and so should be gay marriage.
In the end, it is only between the two people who love each other.
"you arent born gay. thats impossible. if your born male, you're gonna like females. males turn gay cause their mother babied them when they were young, or they hung out with females all the time when they were kids."
Being babied or having female best friends has nothing to do with your sexual orientation. Oh, my best friend is fucking a guy! I think I'll join her! .... Not the way it works bub.
"and this is why gay marriage should be banned. if you can turn gay, then you can turn straight again."
So you're forcing them to go away from their ideals? Imagine gays were the majority, and they wouldn't let you marry unless you were gay. You shouldn't be allowed to, just because you "can turn gay" ?
"leave us straights alone. we've banned gay marriage and thats the end, so stop your whining."
Canada recently legalized gay marriage. Surprise.
"imagine yourself a straight kid being adobted by faggots, how would you feel?"
Embarrassed. Now imagine yourself a gay kid being adopted by straight parents. How would you feel?
Like every other goddamn gay person. Give 'em a break, they've got enough troubles.
The United States of America should be a free place for everybody. First it was only Caucasian heterosexual males who were free. I'm one of those. Next it was free only for heterosexual males. Then heterosexuals. When will it be free for all people?
I wasn't alive during the black or women's rights movements, but I'd like to think I would be standing up or their rights if I was. Now's a chance. You don't have to be gay to support gay marriage. Put yourself in the little guy's shoes. Wouldn't you like that small benefit?
If you were gay, or if gays were the majority... I know that's hard for most of you to imagine, but just try... wouldn't you like to be able to marry?
That's right, the holier-than-thou Bible Belt has the highest divorce rates in the country, while the liberal Northeast has the lowest. Suck it dry, neocons.
Conservatives really need to get over themselves and realize that the whole world won't conform to their ways. Fortunately enough. There are too many airheads as it is.
And thankfully Marijuana won't be legalized. There are enough potheads as it is, they're called conservatives.
