    To be honest, your posts have been the most vitriolic in this thread that I've seen. Of course, many people on both sides have assertively and aggressively stated their opinions, but yours take it to a level that isn't necessary. You should probably take a good look at yourself and your posts because the minute you enter an SSM thread, it all becomes a bit more emotional and chaotic than it needs to be. Reading your posts, more than any other, is like riding an emotional roller coaster.

    If it were really about just sharing assets and legality...this whole debate would have been over by now. This is about going over that...They are demanding you WILL like two men getting married whether you like it or not and you WILL do it the way we want..because WE WANT and we are the righteous and you are a scumbag. Thats the feeling and attitude that makes me more adamant...again I am not anti gay..I am not for SSM as they want it.
    How is SSM "changing the whole process"?

    This position is irrational, you do want it because others want it. How do you get let these people marry means you have to embrace it completely?

    If you are not anti gay than how can you be anti gay marriage?

    Whatever. It's time for you to consider that you, not other people, are the root of your problems in SSM threads.

    Bummer. You do not have a right not to be offended. It is not gay people's fault you are acting on irrational emotions. You should accept responsibility for your own emotional reactions.

    Since I dont have a "RIGHT" to anything...please just go re read my post # 169

    Ok..just like I said..its not the gays its their jock supporters who are trying to "PROVE" how wonderful they are...the twist your words make snide comments and then when they get it in return the whelp and play the victim and blame the other side for everything...If this makes you feel better TPM you are wonderful...your posts on this subject have never been inflammatory you have always been set upon by evil people that dare not to agree...you are truly the victim here...you can take this as a validation for your self

At hospitals, in waiting rooms for surgeries, are their going to be state mandated separate same sex and opposite sex rooms? Separate Coke machines? Two different TV's, one tuned to ESPN and one to Bravo?

    What ACTUAL segregation is going to take place?

    The Brown v. Board of Education argument is nonsense.
    It is the segregation of two institutions, supposed to serve the same function but for some reason separate. It doesn't have to be physical, and I'm not claiming that the whole Civil Union-SSM thing is the same. But the general principle remains.


    There is no logical reason for the differentiation of Marriage and Same-Sex Civil unions. It's a poor cop-out that attempts to cover up the problem.

Laughable and I read them like a cheap comic book. Thats not to say there arent a few gays that just rewind their recorders and replay.
    Its the non gay supporters that throw around the most insults and are the most intense in attacking anyone that dares to say they do not support SSM, I liken it to the some of my best friends are black crowd who carry posters and wear t-shirts SEE, SEE, I am not a racist, its the same mentality.
    Ive tried many times to demonstrate that I am not Anti Gay, I am merely against SSM. The statement im not for gay marriage in itself overrides any thing else I can say and Im done explaining and I refuse to hide what I believe to belong or get along. Ill take the rough road thanks.
    All I will say is id have a drink with you and hang out long before Id hand with many of the straights on here including my new bestus buddy ever here.
    Thanks for being Civil Critical...but thats in somones genes...and if all gays and their supporters talked to others like you..the opposition to SSM would melt into a big puddle much quicker..NOW, thats it moving along.
    You are going to deny rights to people because of loud mouths? I understand your distaste for the counter culture, I finds them distasteful. But to use them to ruin or chances for more rights is really not logical. I don't necessarily respect people who are against ssm but I don't think their rights to disagree with itshould be suspended.

    But you want to punish heterosexual loud mouths by restricting my rights, I ask you to reconsider your position, understanding who really wins, my boyfriend and I and others similar to us, the poisonous will pic the next thing to jump in your face about either way.
