    That's as thin as arguing that 'not allowing same-sex marriage doesnt disctiminate against gender because all men and all women can still get married.'

    So, there's an obvious need for 'more'.

    But that's okay, I suppose the "conservative - preserve everyone's rights" movement will motion "Why not allow people to marry their farm animals?" soon.

    Retaining the definition of marriage as a union between two legal and consenting adults in no way leads to the road of polygamy. Though it is kind of funny watching people say it does.


    Keeping in mind, that I'm against the government regulating marriage in the first place. It should solely be handled by the religious institutions that created it.
    So you hope.

    I generally try and read an entire thread before jumping in and looking like an ASS making ASSumptions.

    If I can do something legally that a woman can not do that is not equal.

    Nothing here affects my post in any way.
    You can get married. A woman can get married.

    That's okay, I look like an ass for one post, you look like an ass for five pages.

    Like voluntarily eliminate your parental obligations?

    Try telling the judge you don't want to pay child support because you wanted her to abort.

    Can a man sue her because she did abort?

    But this is really a different subject from the one being discussed now.
