    Oh, I'm sorry. Were you starting a game where we listed random single words, or did you intend to attach an argument to "taxation?"

    Yeah, I have that personal definition in my personal dictionary, lol.
    US law works in a way where allowing the most people the most freedoms is the goal. And the way US legal marriage works, sex/gender in no way limits the functions of each spouse in a marriage legally.

    The dictionary includes both, unless you have an outdated dictionary.

    Marriage - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    " a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage"

    Marriage | Define Marriage at Dictionary.com

    "marriage

    (broadly) any of the diverse forms of interpersonal union established in various parts of the world to form a familial bond that is recognized legally, religiously, or socially, granting the participating partners mutual conjugal rights and responsibilities and including, for example, opposite-sex marriage, same-sex marriage, plural marriage, and arranged marriage:, Anthropologists say that some type of marriage has been found in every known human society since ancient times.

    Taxation mean theft of labor. And then stealing from you to promote something you do not support, is added.

    No you are simply not making any sense again. How does that have anything to do with marriage and same sex marriage affects those who are against it?

    Is taxation used for anything related to gay marriage?

    So what are you proposing? The abolition of all taxes? Because as there isn't a 100% consensus on anything that's essentially what you're saying, and that seems like an awfully extreme reaction to 5% of the population now being allowed to marry each other.

    Sure, I do not support theft of labor.

    5 percent seems high.

    Taxation is used for a lot of things. And it has been shown that there is a net benefit to same sex marriage being legal, not a loss. This means that more money is brought in for the use by society as a whole by same sex marriages than lost to same sex marriages.
