    due to most equipment, tools, etc being designed for a right-handed society...left-handed people are more likely to be injured or die in accidents

    as to the "the anus is an exit only portal" angle...i totally agree. due to the delicate nature of the membranes in the anus, injury and risk of infections (such as HIV) are much more likely during anal sex. there is a reason why HIV infection rates are higher in the gay community than in the general population (at least in the US)

    although, recent surveys indicate that a majority of gay males deny engaging in anal sex.

    personally, if they want to be gay...no skin off my back. if they want to get married.....ditto. I don't figure it is my place to judge, that will come later and by a much higher authority than me

    amen to that. or do like i did and shell out the $$$$ for a good pair of left-handed scissors. there are many times I have found myself in situations where a job was more difficult or dangerous simply because everything was 'backwards"

    This is very much wrong. You are trying to use one definition of marriage from one site. I can find many others that say that marriage involves same sex couples in a committed relationship as well.

    Marriage - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    Marriage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And just like many things in this world, marriage has changed or "evolved" with time. Women are no longer considered the property of the men they are married to. Marriage is not the only way to determine paternity in question. Marriage isn't used to control women, but rather to help ensure that women and men are protected from blood relative claims to money, property, decisions to be made and from getting screwed if the relationship fails and they had different responsibilities in the marriage.

    The pertinent question is: Why do you care what others do?

    It's fine if you're not attracted to the same sex/gender - but why does it matter to you who other people are attracted to?

    Are you happily married? Madly in love with your spouse?
    If so - why would you want to prevent anyone else from having that same experience?

    True. And it doesn't mean it is incorrect either. And as far being normal who cares. Einstein wasn't normal. So what is the problem with homosexuality?

    Love, children, a family in general, are all crucial to marriage, and they all fall under the successful marriage relationship of a mother and father.
    None of which have anything to do with why marriage should stay just as "a man and a woman". The Bible nor the God of Abraham (who btw kept his own relationship from Sarah, his half-sister, a secret to save himself which led to the wrongful persecution of innocent people by the God of the Bible) have any place in this discussion because they have no say in the legal definition of marriage in this country. Marriage existed long before the Bible, the texts that went into it, and Abraham. And the current definition of marriage being something does not prevent it from changing. At one time, in many places in this country, the definition of marriage was "union of two people of the same race". That changed, so will this.
