    Appeal to tradition fallacy. Also, more straights than gays are asking for same sex marriage.

    Very possible, but it's been there for a very long time.

    As for things that I believe are ACTUALLY eroding the institution of marriage, you could start with divorce rates, and dumb **** like the bachelor, the bachelorette, and who wants to marry a millionaire
    Welp, that certainly doesn't help.

    Then it should be legal, universally, by now.

    I had to vote other because my option isn't up there.

    Its not wrong, actually I think Same Sex Marriage is constitutional.

    But I don't think it has anything to do with gay couples directly, and singling them out as some kind of special group regarding it is wrong. Same Sex marriage is just that. Two people of the same sex can be married. There's no requirement in the least they be homosexual.

    I do, I just don't necessarily agree that personal choices or orientations grant rights.

    No less valid than your appeal to nature fallacy.

    You are the person who argues that homosexuality is unnatural and therefore wrong. I have said many times that whether homosexuality is defined as natural or unnatural has no bearing on whether it is right or wrong. But I'm happy to see you finally figuring out logical fallacies.

    Also, an appeal to traditional fallacy is invalid, just as an appeal to nature fallacy would be.

    hardly. there may be many straights that don't oppose same sex marriage, but there aren't droves of them screaming for it either.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    No, they do not. You can choose to marry the person that you are attracted to. They cannot.
