Homosexual are individuals too. We get our rights protected just like you do. That includes the right to equal protection under the law.

Nope. Don't offer services for weddings. You CHOSE to offer your services, no one FORCED you to. Sorry, but you have to follow anti-discrimination laws unless you can get them repealed. Good luck with that.

no one has the right to force their beliefs on others. Beliefs and rights are two different things. Thats what you dont get. Probably because you're too busy shoving your beliefs down everyones throats.

I'm not stopping two people in love from getting married. I'm banning others from shoving thier beliefs down my throat and forcing me (others) to accept it. I'm not stopping two people in love from getting married. Thats what you don't get.

The funny thing is - coon asses aren't ashamed of being called a coon ass. I'm one, in fact.

That being said, I'm 100 percent Northern European and have the DNA test to prove it! Not that it matters one whit. My husband looks like a poster child for Hitler's Lebensborn program (angular, chiseled features, blue eyes, straight blonde hair) and when his DNA test results came back, he found out he is at least 2 percent Western African! Oh, and also part Jewish.

So what, like I said - ancestry doesn't determine the value or dignity of a person.

To get back on topic, neither does sexual orientation. Or religion or gender or age ...etc...you get the picture.

The opposite is true for women - in that if you do not allow women to marry women, you care discriminating on the right of a female to marry a female.

If that were so then why is this even a controversial issue? Obviously, it's a matter of opinion what so-called rights someone has no matter how one wants to twist the Constitution to extend all kinds of so-called rights to everyone for anything. Let Obama make a big announcement in his next state of the union address then that gay marriage is a constitutional right and that all states are obligated to honor it. After all, isn't he as president obligated to make sure that the Constitution is followed/enforced? No more laws banning SSM should even be allowed to be brought to a vote then. What's stopping him?

Most modern nations set the AOC at 16. Because most modern nations recognize that peopler under that age usually lack the maturity needed to engage in sex. They also recognize it offers legal recourse for people who are manipulated at a young age by a much older partner.

Very few people were getting married at twelve over one hundred years ago, so you can stop that line of argument before you make yourself look ridiculous. People got married younger in the past because it was expected, people matured much faster, and most families weren't financially able to take care of children the length that they can today.

No? bottom-line Femism is just another trap for women BECAUSE NOBODY TAUGHT THEM HOW TO BE WOMEN. However for real feminists who got the shaft in life ( like an messed up selfish husband who FUBARED the marriage ).

To make things worst non-hets and womanists who are non-heterosexuals also mixes in. The real feminist are practically invisible and barely have any say at all ). I am not talking about these money grubbing radicals or the women who made an random mistakes ( I say random because random is random ).


So we get into more problems as well. Bottom-line whining about people preserving their normality is stupid. Their is no problems with the South at all so people should just stop pouncing on them for garbage.

People just need to move on and grow up.
The only people that say that crap are the ones who hate the fact that they can't live like 1930s men. The reality is almost no women who identity with feminism think like that.

I don't know. It is what it is, you tell me why it's a so called issue with you, because that's *exactly* what it is - discrimination on the basis of sex. I could never understand why we would be so silly as to fight that fact, nobody has ever offered a reasonable explanation.
