    Being a heterosexual is fun?

    I've never really noticed anything "fun" about being attracted to women.

    It's not a matter of being "fun", its just a matter of being who they are. I am heterosexual, but I don't consider it fun per say just who I am. Now if your talking about the ACTS that people that are homosexual or heterosexual do in bed, that's a whole different story to others I'm sure.

    Oh I dunno, I like being attracted to the opposite sex, and it's kinda fun, no? Let's put it this way. It doesn't suck!

    So there are actually no constraints being placed on homosexual marriage. Only constraints on the State's recognition of these marriages.

    That lack of recognition serves as an enrosement of heterosexual marriages.

    Repealing that constraint on recognition does not validate anything. It simply retracts the endorsemnt of heterosexual marriages.

    That does not act as an endorsement of homosexual marriages, though. It merely serves as an endorsement neutral environment.

    To make an example, let's say two politicians, Politician A and Politician B, are running for an office.

    So lets say I decide to endorse Poltician A. By necessity, this requires me to reject politician B.

    Now let's say the only thing I can officially do is reject something (i.e. pass legislation making something illegal). Thus, I have to reject politician B in order to endorse politician A.

    Endorsement is the equal and opposite reaction to rejection of a dichotomy and vice versa.

    But lets say I rescind my rejection of Politician B (and thus rescind my endorsement of politician A).

    I'm back to an endorsement-neutral situation. Neither politician is endorsed nor rejected.

    Thus, by repealing the constraints on recognition, ther cannot possibly be an endorsement or validation of gay marriage. The only thing that occurs is a return to neutral regarding the collective position. It allows for both beliefs to be seen as potentially valid by the collective. It leaves the ultimate power to decide with the people instead of the State.

    Ok, well I'm sure CC will come in here later, and claim another victory, but in all honesty I'd like to move on to other, more important issues of the day. I really don't know what else to say on the matter. I do feel strongly about my position, but not nearly enough to continue on with this whole thread ad infinty. When new evidence comes out, or someone says something compelling enough for me to bother, I'll reevaluate my stance, until then, I'll see you all in the other threads.

    I'm sure CC will dog me there as well, but it's ok. I've delt with his variety before.

    Cheers to all, and I hope I didn't strongly offend anyone with my views.

    Being heterosexual, for me, is really no different from having lines on my hand. It's just how things are.

    No problem, Hicup. Have a good day with your kids. Hopefully it's as nice outside by you as it is by me.
