    Procreation is always brought up by the anti-GM group as a reason to deny gays the right to marry their partner. Despite the fact that not everyone that gets married has or wants or can have kids. They act as if its the only reason to marry.

Only way to know is to ask who ever it was that designed us. GL on that though.

    Edit note: This would actualy kind of make a possibly interesting discussion for a new thread.

    It's a major reason for why the state should recognize marriage.

    No it isn't. The rearing of children is a major reason why the state should recognize marriage. There is a difference.

    Nothing. That's the point.

    Well that's *MY* point... but if we're all in agreement than it begs the question, why bother bringing up the whole pissing/toxins thing in the first place?

    Because it demonstrates the fallacy that sexual organs were designed only for sex. There are other purposes for those organs and until the designer explains precisely what their purpose is, showing that there is more that one use for them negates that part of the "anti" position.
