    Apparently, some people "own" certain words, and feel a little stingy about sharing.

    If it's equal why the need to call it marriage? Question goes both ways. The answer is obvious if you're not blinded by bias.

    Indeed, take out the sarcasm and the assinine characterization and there you have your answer.

    I do not want equality. I want the security marriage provides. You refuse to understand me or other gay people and demand to be understood. That is your mistake. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    If your answer boils down to "ownership" of a word, then you've already lost.

    Nonsense, all it takes is state and federal legislation. The federal legislation doesn't have to go over one paragraph. One is not true so that invalidates number two.

    No the question doesn't go both ways. If it were equal heterosexuals could call theirs a civil union or a marriage and homosexuals could call theirs a civil union or a marriage.

    What security do you gain by having the title? Sounds like you're backtracking your argument - you've denied that it was about social acceptance.

    And as I've been reminding you, you DO have something to lose - legal homosexual marriage and the benefits of such.

    Look, I'd like to see you and your family have all the benefits that hetero life partners have. Is that my mistake?

    separate but equal is factually not equal history has has been proven fact.
    feel free to believe the lie if you like but you are factually wrong try again

    even foe MORE support that you are wrong legal precedence has already been set showing how civil unions and domestic partnerships are as legal binding and concrete.

    Sorry your opinion loses to history and facts.

    Where are you getting that from? The transitive property doesn't always apply in politics or social acceptance.
