It wasnt about the right to adopt...it was about your 'boo hooing' gays right to marry and I pointed out I could as easily not give a crap and laugh at men not getting treated fairly in family court...an *EXAMPLE.* You dont give a crap about gay rights, others may not give a crap about men's rights. Oh well.....
They are adult AMERICANS as as such deserve the same benefits and privileges as other Americans under the same contract. They are denied thru gender discrimination. That has been explained to you a few times.

Or how about all the felons...in jail allowed to marry? Or the people of different faiths and NO faith? All allowed to marry.
Gays have kids, gays have families...naturally, and by adoption. Lots of straight married couples CHOOSE to do neither.
So...tell me again why gays should be excluded without looking like a hypocrite.
It's not about the "composition" of the marriage to the state....as you said, it means many things to many people. It's ABOUT a legal contract with benefits and privileges that ALL these others...felons, atheists, child-free couples...GET to have and gays are still denied. For no good reason that I have seen.
I'm not gay. We didnt care about getting married and chose not to have kids. Marriage is not a big deal to me at all. As a matter of fact, I believe the state and fed govts should stay out of it completely. But that's not going to happen.
So then I believe in being fair and treating other human beings equably. This is a civil rights issue and I dont want people looking back at my generation some day and the most generous thing they can say on this issue is, 'they were ignorant,' just like we do of the previous generations that treated blacks and women as 2nd class citizens.

yes it is retorted to limit gay people to marriage with someone of the other gender as they don't want it and don't have the choice of marriage to the consenting unclosely related adult adult of their choice
yes it is retarded to use the same kind of argument a racist would use against interracial marriage to say that gay marriage is retarded
The right to marry someone of a different race. I don't have it nor do i want it. Its retarded.
