    Well, now that is generally called a straw-man argument...

    I NEVER said that "... everyone must marry someone of the same gender". If you are out of the loop as regards the push for allowance/acceptance of SSM in the United States, perhaps you might read up.

    If your reading comprehension is so challagened as to leave you with the impression that which you have here stated to be the sum total of what your actual understanding of what I said to be, well... one might sincerely suggest that you take that up with your local educational resources for additional assistance.

    Adolf Hitler liked dogs. He was evil. Therefore, liking dogs is evil. Q.E.D.


    "You know, I shouldn't have to explain this, but sharing one attribute with Nazis doesn't make you one!"
    Jon Stewart, The Daily Show

    A logical fallacy that assumes that anything done or liked by a bad person must be bad itself, taking Not So Different to absurd levels.
    The premise seems to be that bad people must have a way to tell if something is evil. Either that, or bad people are repulsed by anything that isn't at least as evil as they are. Whatever the reason, bad people magically will only associate with things that are bad. Therefore people claim a thing is bad because bad people associate with it.
    This is a concept called The Association Fallacy, which often overlaps with Godwin's Law, due to how often Hitler is used for this (also known as Reductio ad Hitlerum).
    After all, Hitler has gained the reputation for being the very embodiment of darkest evil, who oozed "pure liquid malevolence" right out of his pores. So, he supposedly would only do/like/own things that are as evil as him. Things like sitting on a chair, wearing clothes, eating, taking a walk, and breathing. Hitler did those things, but that doesn't make them bad. Hitler is not a reason things are bad.
    We don't think mass murder is bad because Hitler, Stalin, or other bad people did them. We think those people are bad because they committed mass murder. In other words, this trope is backwards. A thing being bad stands on its own as bad.

    This is the dumbest argument I see from your side. I love conservatives who want the government to tell you who you can love.

    ya just like when we had bans on interracial marriage

    black and white people could all get married just to other black and white people

    no rights were taken from individuals in interracial couples you see because the rules that discriminated against them were also applied to people that were not effected by it

    o wait that's the exact same kind of stupid evil bull**** in both cases whoops

    Commonwealth of Virginia, circa 1966:

    Blacks can marry blacks

    White can marry whites

    Paraphrasing their argument before the Courts in Loving v. Virginia: "Just where is this race discrimination? All races have the same rights, all, if they want to marry, have to marry one of the race... that is equal for all races. What do you not get about that?"

    Please identify the defining characteristic under the law which determines in the below set, who can and cannot Civilly Marry:

    Heterosexual Man + Heterosexual Woman = Legal
    Heterosexual Man + Homosexual Woman = Legal
    Homosexual Man + Heterosexual Woman = Legal
    Homosexual Man + Homosexual Woman = Legal
    Heterosexual Man + Heterosexual Man = Illegal
    Heterosexual Man + Homosexual Man = Illegal
    Homosexual Man + Homosexual Man = Illegal
    Heterosexual Woman + Heterosexual Woman = Illegal
    Heterosexual Woman + Homosexual Woman = Illegal
    Homosexual Woman + Homosexual Woman = Illegal

    Maybe when those who have something of actual value that they want to discuss, they can make other attempts. Good luck
