    I wanted to vote no, but increasing normalization of so-called "gay rights" has already slid down the slope towards normalization of polygamy (as witnessed in the OP).

    Does that mean you believe the road will continue to the normalization of pedophilia?

    Facts do not bear out any "normalization" of polygamy.

    And what exactly is wrong with polygamy? Obviously, it must be with adults that consented.

    I know several group marriages and they seem to work out about as well as traditional marriages.

    To be honest...in 20 years I would not be shocked that the notion of high school aged kids engaging in sexual activites with "adults" will be more "normalized" and accepted than it is now with the increasing push towards sexual understanding, increased ability through the internet for people of various sexual tastes to actually find others that share htose tastes, and general urge to be "open" to things. I think actually that the two likely scenarios is that over the next 20 years it veers in that direction OR we have a massive snap in the cultural/societal view point on sex that actually tightens the views comparitive to today.

    I don't ever buy the slippery slope argument using this as an excuse against same-sex marriage because something POSSIBLY happening in the future in a similar but largely unrelated way is not a legitimate argument for stopping something good or, in this case in my mind, constitutional. But I do think over time the views regarding older "kids" and adults will soften but I don't think any action regarding "gay rights" would be to "blame" for that.

    I don't think we'll likely see at any point in our lifetimes a point where your non-teenage children would have a push or a chance of being legalized in some way, but yeah....I wouldn't be shocked if over the next 20-30 years the general view point on teenagers changes. Actually...I think that notion has a better shot of being "normalized" FAR sooner than polygamy would be.

    Like I said, I want to say no, but since the OP is already talking normalization of polygamy, perhaps it will.

    I didn't take a position on it pro or con, but it definitely is down that slope from "gay rights", as you can see from the link Redress just posted.

    A very small super minority do, they think that equal gay rights and future polygamy rights are equal to pedophilia.

    Facts remains though there is no logic to support this broken train of thought because equal gay rights (gay marriage) and polygamy marriage do not need society to ignore, change or legalize the words: rape, minors, consent, abuse, molestation, assault, force and victim.

    Now are there people on the planet that will say its equal rights or the same? im sure, theres people on the planet still fighting against gay rights, woman rights and minority rights, big whoop lol

    I say this logic is severly broken because they aren't similar at all.

    so the question is, will equal gay rights and possible future polygamy rights lead to legalized pedophilia?
    I should stick to beer, lad. What you are on is getting you hopelessly confused. Homosexuality, polygamy and child abuse are totally different issues, and only an American Extremist could possibly confuse them.

    Only in the imagination of the beholder.

    The slippery slope argument can be used for anything but its not exactly "critical thinking". There is really no relationship between gay marriage and any of the fr less plausible options. As it is, gay marriage has to go up the slippery slope, not down. Remember, in America, "normal" is what YOU believe, not what "the other guy" believes.

    Doesn't pedophilia only describe prepubescent children? Pedophilia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That's what I always take it to mean anyway. I could definitely see standards toward high-school age kids relaxing in some ways, but I've seen no movement whatsoever to try and get sexual acts with prepubescent children legalized or normalized.
