    "Sin taxes" don't literally mean "we think this activity is sinful and are therefore taxing it."

    Maybe that clears things up?

    Noting that queers fit in some of the definitions for normals is preposterous.....as are most, if not all of your assertions.
    It's the truth. The definitions listed above of normal are easy to read and homosexuality fits into the top two easily. Just because you don't understand this or don't want to accept it, doesn't change the facts.

    "Sin tax" is referring to things we know are bad for someone and that are sold. Marriage is not bad for people, even those of the same sex. And "sin tax" is talking about the fact that the product being sold is bad for the person but not bad enough to rate prohibition. Homosexuality isn't "sold", nor is same sex marriage. You can't tax something that isn't going through a commercial transaction. And you can't charge one group more for a contract that has nothing to do with the "sin" believed to be bad than you do other people.
