    So you have no links to back up your claims on incest.

    There is no evidence that incest couples can raise children well.

    Thank you for clarifying that you don't have any valid reasons. It's always boring to play games with you. Thank you for your time.

    Re: SSM (Same-sex marriage) is wrong because?

    First...its an illegitimate tactic to suggest that because the law doesn't allow group Y to marry than it shouldn't have to allow group Z to marry, unless in all ways group Y's situation is 100% identical to group Z's. Attempting to divert the topic to an entirely different situation is not debating, its attempting to distract and derail the conversation to something else.

    Second...the arguments for Incest, Gay Marriage, and Same Sex Marriage have similarities but are not identical in all ways. The arguments against each, and for each, are different.

    The red herring that the other side is continually throwing out is nothing but an obvious and transparent attempt to grasp at straws because they are failures at making a legitimate argument.

    Usually my objections to your arguments aren't about disagreement, they're about an absence of logic and sense, so I don't think you have to worry about that.

    If "the other side" is the opposition to SSM, I can assume I am one of the people you speak of. I have raised such arguments, and as I've said before it is not to derail, or even to compare said behaviors directly to SSM. I only raise them as an illustration of behaviors that people generally still feel are immoral or wrong in an attempt to describe the reaction some currently experience to homosexuality and SSM.

    Any argument for SSM which is based on any form of class or Equality© is already off-topic by default. So it's no harm to simply change which off-topic we're discussing at any given point in time, because we're all wrong anyway.

    You simply don't like how easily the Equality© arguments are broken down and falsified.

    It's not my fault pro-SSM doesn't stick to the arguments which always win when used.
