    There are no partial inalienable human rights. Do you have to become gay befor you get rights?

    Incorrect.

    A man can do something a woman can't do, marry a woman.

    A woman can do something a man can't do, marry a man

    Saying "They can marry the opposite sex" doesn't work in regards to EPC. If it was the case, one could suggest constitutionally a law stating that one can marry someone of the same race only would be legal because every race has the same ability as any other race, the chance to marry their own race. However, that is not constitutional either under EPC.

    You're attempting to use ambiguous terminology with regards to the "opposite sex" as a means of attempting to obfuscate the reality, which is that men and women can each do something under the law that the law prevents the other sex from doing.

    Two major problems with that emotional appeal. One, there's no proof that one is born gay, like one is born black, latino, male, female, etc. Second, when arguing from a purely legal standpoint, existing anti-discrimination law would overrule such a discriminatory practice if indeed it truely were discrimination. It's not.

    :

    You're arguing people have to become or act straight to get rights... Is being homosexual the only thing that will self alienate your rights, and if you become or act straight *bam* your rights magically activate?

    How many times will you contradict yourself?

    but it is perfectly OK for you to distort mine and tell me how I feel and what I think?

    Now you're projecting. For me, it's not about wanting mac. It's about the definition.

    Blacks and whites had equal access to schools and had the same race based restrictions on which schools they could attend.

    Men and women have equal access to marriage and have the same opposite-sex based restrictions on who they can marry.

    Discrimination.

    "bang little children"? i thought that was reserved for the clergy and michael jackson who is dead now so i guess it's just for the clergy now.

    Nobody is born believing in God, yet we afford religious groups special rights and freedoms at the federal level. Do you have a problem with that, yes or no?

    And you are on the wrong side of history. There will be equal rights for gay and lesbian people.
