    What is the primary reason behind your support for same-sex marriage? [W:539/549]

    Not sure if a poll like this has already been posted, but these are questions that I've been mulling over for sometime. Would appreciate some honest input.

    I support SSM because I believe that gays, lesbians and bisexuals love each other with identical emotions that straight people have and that they should be allowed to legally wed.

    I support it because I, unlike many people in this nation, don't believe that I have a right to dictate how other consenting adults run their lives.

    The very LAST thing our phucked up society needs to be doing is preventing people from forming and cultivating loving, lasting relationships.

    It's an equal rights issue.

    because i support equal protection under the law, and I believe that it is the civil rights struggle of our time.

    Personally, I don't see it as a rights issue at all. I don't believe that we should define or extend rights on the basis of sexual orientation, rather it's the equal love that others feel that should merit a marriage on a legal level.

    It isn't defining rights on the basis of sexual orientation, it's demanding that they not be limited on that basis.

    Marriage is a religious term. Same sex contracts is a fine description and marriage should also be labelled the same. CONTRACT! We're talking about a legal contract, not in any way related to love.
