    At least in the US, outside of professional literature, gender can and does most commonly refer to sex.
    Most commonly yes gender does refer to sex. However I would assume she wasnt using gender to refer to sex. At least I would hope not anyways.

    Either she was using it to mean gender roles, or she said gender roles and cp did not understand. In either case, the failure was with him.

    So heterosexuals can marry their siblings and daughters? If they can, I believe that homosexuals should be able to as well since I believe in equality. If you don't want to consummate your marriage, then that could be ground for the marriage to be voided, or maybe you were suggesting a sham marriage, either way, what you suggests is not the marriage recognized legally that we are concerned with, so you are using a fallacy as an arguement.

    That's correct. If there exists a right "to marry the person you love", then folks can already marry relatives and I would be using a fallacy as an argument.

    As it is, though, there is no such right. "Heteros can marry the person they love" is just some bull**** gays say when they want to appeal to emotion.

    ...and watch the **** storm ensue.

    But then, what could be expected in a thread based on a lie? Mullet was arrested for refusing to leave, not for seeking a SSM.

    There are lots of kids who don't have a "mommy" and "daddy". And this is about same sex marriage, not same sex couples raising children. Same sex couples are already raising children, have been doing so for quite some time, and will continue to do so with or without same sex marriage. The only thing preventing them from getting legally married does is hurt the family by not allowing them the same rights and benefits that opposite sex couples get for the same type of relationship. The kids will still have the same people raising them.

    Tim-
    So you're advocating what the Likables did, "Only when everyone looks alike, and acts alike, and noone ever gets angry, can we achieve world peace". (Know the reference?)

    People are different. Kids are different. We need to be teaching kids that being different is not something that is bad or that should be made fun of. Would you want children to be treating children who only have one parent differently because they don't have both a "mommy" and a "daddy"?

That is to say that evolution progresses on a macro scale, NOT a microcosom.. The model for evolution consists of a male and a female producing offspring. It does not require adoptions, or invetro, and it cannot include parents that are not the prodgeny and in turn to their own children. Homosexiuals do not evolve as a family they evolve as individuals..

    Not all children are the children of both parents though, even when the parents are opposite sex. Many kids are adopted, plus you have lots of step-families out there. Many opposite sex couples use all those things that you mentioned.

    My best friend was raised by her grandparents because her father died when she was very young and he had custody of her. Her mother didn't want anything to do with her. We had a guy in school who was black and had been adopted by an older white couple who raised him. There are lots of different families out there.

    There is nothing dysfunctional about not being able to have children together. Some married opposite sex people choose to be in that situation and we allow it.
