    tell that to the people in this thread who support equal rights for a gay couple but not for an incestuous couple or polygamist group.

    ( I await the obligatory squeals of " but...but....but...but....that's different" )

    equal rights have to apply equally to everyone or they are not really equal

    Incest does not equate with gay. Don't be a fool.

    As for polygamy..... I don't care about that either. I see know reason why multiple consenting adults can't marry each other if that's what they chose to do. It's none of my business.

    If businesses can be organized around a group of people, why can't marriages?

    if people are stupid enough to want to get into that kind of situation, I say fine. Let them.

    It doesn't hurt or effect me in the least.

    knee jerk piss yourself much? who said that gay = incest? were talking equal rights. and equal rights should be equal for everyone...gay, incest, straight, polygamist...every group of consenting adults.

    As for polygamy..... I don't care about that either. I see know reason why multiple consenting adults can't marry each other if that's what they chose to do. It's none of my business.

    There is an EXTREMELY valid scientific and sociological reason for not supporting incest.

    Stop being a knee-jerk idiot and reaching for the most obnoxious scenarios to try to support your pathetic position on equality.

    At what point will you also throw bestiality into the discussion? You might as well go whole-hog. No sense holding back.
    Obviously it's only a matter of time.....

    animals can't give consent. so your position on equality hinges on your own personal feelings about the group of people involved...got it and thanks for clearing up your hypocrisy.


    you people always want to squeal about the reproductive issue on incest, but then piss yourselves and cry that it is not an issue for gays. incest couples could have kids the same way gay couples do and that would eliminate your "extremely" valid scientific EXCUSE for denying them the same equal right you so loudly bleat for gays.

    hypocrisy....what a concept

    again everytime you post this you prove you have no clue what equal rights are LMAO, you have been told this by many posters incuding myself and it has been proved over and over. You being uneducated about equal rights and you ignoring facts doesnt change anything.

    You have proven your ignorance in magnificent form. Thank you for that.

    Now before you go on....perhaps you might want to go here and read around a bit.

    I agree with Oscar. The same rationale that extends marriage to same sex couples implies that marriage should be extended to relatives and polygamous groups. This is simple logic, and dragonfly is a hypocrite.

    Bottom line is that government has no business gran special rights to married people but if it does it must do so equally, to straight, gay, incestuous and polygamous groups. This is about equal protection under the law.

    What happens between 2 or more consenting adults is none of your business. Animals lack the mental capacity to give consent and is a ridiculous comparison to card carrying citizens.

    finally, a voice of reason. this has been my point all along. If you are going to argue for equal rights then that right has to apply to everyone. too bad many gay supporters don't want to admit their hypocrisy on this issue.
