    What discrimination is there? Nobody is allowed to practice polygamy.

    Which raises another point...why is it illegal to have sex in public? Sex is perfectly natural, is it not?

    Not much.

    If I did, that notion would be far more pushing me in favor of legalizing SSM than against it, as I think the harm done by the discrimination towards homosexuals would be far far greater than the harm in people having to accept that their government allows gay marriage.

    Pornography/nudity is illegal to display to a minor. Minors, and their parents, have a reasonable expectation not to be subjected to illegal activity while going through public areas. As such, engaging in said act in public is illegal.

    It'd be similar to why, if you wanted to sit in your house and chuck knives all over the place the police wouldn't do anything to you. However, if you went into the middle of the city square and started doing it you'd likely be arrested, because your action is now endangering people by directing illegal activity their way.

    Do you think it's possible for said lack of a people's well being to lead to violent upheaval or civil war?

    because people are prudes.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Individuals who wish to marry only one person is able to fulfill their wish if they so choose. Individuals who wish to marry multiple people are not able to fulfill their wish. As such, they're being discriminated against based on the number of people they'd like to marry.

    Unfortunately for them, "number of people one wishes to marry" is not a protected group under the EPC and even if it was it'd be at the absolute bottom tier which is very simple to suggest what the government should be able to perform said discrimination.

    Still, you're saying its natural so it should be okay....text book appeal to nature.

    But as my edit stated

    Pornography/nudity is illegal to display to a minor. Minors, and their parents, have a reasonable expectation not to be subjected to illegal activity while going through public areas. As such, engaging in said act in public is illegal.

    It'd be similar to why, if you wanted to sit in your house and chuck knives all over the place the police wouldn't do anything to you.

    In this particular instance for either side, absolutely not.

    In a general sense, sure...there's nothing in our society that is close to enough to make me think such would happen.

    As was shown in a recent poll, FAR more people opposed interracial marriage than oppose same sex marriage at the moment and we didn't have violent civil war or upheaval then. Its absolutely laughably retarded to even imply that such is a factor currently in an anywhere serious level.
