By the way no one thinks a man loving another man is wrong, its the anal sex part.

All the crimes you mentioned are about committing an act witout consent, where as a homosexuality idoes not impy the removal of consent. If straight people can have sex witout love (lord knows that happens often enough) , then why can't a homosexual couple have sex with love?

and what about straight people having anal sex? Or gay men who don't have anal sex (yes there are, I know some)?

I didn't say gay marriage (which most people don't support, although the margin is lessening) but civil unions. Don't confuse the two.

My favorite cliche on the subject: Don't like gay sex? Don't have it.

Portland and Eugene are very 'blue'- they also happen to be the states largest areas of population. Corvallis with OSU is also a 'light blue'. The rest of the state is pretty much 'Christian Conservative', with some areas like Klamath Falls down right reactionary.

Portland and Eugene basically make Oregon a 'light blue' state, and help 'disolve the deep redness' of the very rural areas east of the Cascades, southern Oregon and the coastal areas that are lightly populated and have less clout on social and political issues.

Portland does have a pretty decent gay scene by the way.

My perspectives are as a gay man who has spent time in Oregon. I live in Connecticut now- which does have a civil unions law- and some couples have law suits against the state of CT- wanting marriage. Connecticut is very liberal/gay friendly from corner to corner, be it rural, small town or urban area.
