    It's not popular culture if it's actually happening. Popular culture is sparkling vampires.

    Good question. I have my theories, but I'm not of that age. Time will tell and I have some ideas about how technology will affect it. I can only hope that I'll still be flexible enough in my old age to see what's right.

    The children of some gay couples are already grown, and the answer is already in: they had loving parents as often as other kids and they're just as thankful.

    Thank you, but it was in fact a trick question.

    There are no offspring of gay couples. It is in fact a biological impossibiity.

    No points, but thanks for playing.

    If you'd actually read my post, you'd seen that I said "children." It was a needed adjustment, since your sentence was nonsensical and I assumed you had a point. Apparently not. Way to prove how seriously you take any perspective but your own that you can't even read other people's posts. It's in your own quote.

    In addition, I fail to see, even if you hadn't just made a dumb mistake of failure to read, how that would score you any points. Unless you'd like to argue infertile people who adopt or have IVF or sperm/egg doners (all of which gay people can do) make lousy parents too, and that the fertile partner can "feel free" to marry someone who isn't infertile.

    Au contraire, cherie. My sentence was pefectly sensical. T'was, to wit, this:

    What will the offspring of these gay marriages say a hundred years from now? That is the question.
    To which you relied

    The children of some gay couples are already grown, and the answer is already in: they had loving parents as often as other kids and they're just as thankful.
    There are no children of gay couples. And there never will be.

    Re: Why are many people grossed out by homosexuality?

    I assumed you had:
    1. An understanding of biology.
    2. A better point than simply an infantile jab at gay people that makes absolutely no point.

    I was right about #1, and wrong about #2. But my response was perfectly in keeping with having an optimistic outlook on the intelligence and integrity of people who converse with me. So sue me if I assume people will live up to a standard and I'm not always right. That is the only mistake I made.

    I got an A in biology! Go me!

    My "jab at gay people" does however make a point, tho one they like to minimize. They cannot - CAN NOT - reproduce.

    Find a judge who can fix that one and I'll convert.

    No suit papers are forthcoming, Mistress. I'm sorry to have disappointed you.

    Once again, unless you would like to apply the same to infertile people, or childfree people for that matter, and ban either of them from marrying, it's not a "point." It means nothing at all.

    Are you proposing a fertility test for couples appyling for marriage? I'll go there wit'cha, if that'll stop this asinine argument.

    And your whole argument is demolished by the fact that LGBT people can adopt, and have children through other means. We can still have families, and there is no reason to not support those families, and strengthen one of the core American values, which is family.

    No. I am assuming you're saying the inability to have a biological offspring of both gay parents is some sort of argument against gay marriage. If you're not then I doubly don't get it.

    I personally don't care. People get married for love these days, not for a license to breed in a way that is acceptable to you. You don't care if straight people do it through IVF, other artificial means, adoption, or not at all. So why does it matter if gay people do?
