    The only requirement given was love. Not sex. And what kind of love wasn't specified, so if you love your sibling as a sibling, you therefore have the right to marry them, according to pro-ssm. If you love your daughter as a daughter, you therefore have the right to marry them according to pro-ssm.

    It's more like not being treated special for being different. They can marry someone of opposite sex just like anyone else can.

    There is no advantage or disadvantage to SSM. Why should there be? And why would the children of same sex parents feel different if homosexuality were completely accepted?

    Then its gender discrimination because a man can marry someone a woman cant and a woman can marry someone a man cant.

    Also it wouldnt be a special right because heterosexuals and homosexuals would gain the right to marry someone of the same sex.

    Why would a kid feel different? Maybe because they don't have a "mommy" and "daddy" like normal kids.

    If I was a green frog but all the other frogs were red, I would feel different, wouldn't I?

    Key phrase in my post was if homosexuality were completely accepted. BTW before this argument about whether or not there are negative aspects of having homosexual parents begin every peer reviewed study ever done on the subject shows there are no negative aspects of having homosexual parents.

    They want legal acceptance through legislation.. What other kind of acceptance would one expect if they sought legal acceptance through legislation? There are a good number of people that are against the death penalty in states where the death penalty is legal. Has the government attained acceptance through legislation or haven't they?


    Tim-
    If you had read the thread, you would be aware that people are claiming they want social acceptance through legislation. Reading the thread = good.

    Legal arguments do not require an advantage of SSM over strait marraige.

    No, in fact you can feel quite normal with gay parents.
