    Explain that to the homosexuals who want gay marriage but do not support polygamy, because it's the same argument.

    Those numbers get all skewed with you start taking into account all the sexual orientations. So how much of that 9% of the male population is gay or bi or even asexual (i.e. not interested in having sex/marriage)?
    A smaller portion than the lesbian population. Which further exacerbates that problem.

    You'll find that most polys also support SSM.

    I'll try, but being a homosexual doesn't make a person more prone to understanding the dynamics of polyamory. I don't expect any more understanding from one sexual orientation or another.

    I have no moral issue with polygamy, but I have practical issues with it. Legalizing polygamy would require changing a lot of laws. Every law we have relating to marriage and divorce are based on two people. And every single one of them would have to be changed to include more than two. That's a lot of work, and a lot of money. I'm not convinced that there are enough people out there who would take advantage of polygamous marriages to make it worth the expense and effort that changing the laws would take.

    Yes. We will. It's called euthanasia or assisted suicide. It's legal in a lot of places. Do you also want to deny people the right to die with dignity?

    I don't see why it would be "so" expensive. Exactly what laws would have to be changed?

    Well, we're talking about marriage. How can you compare the two? No one is talking about "killing" anyone.
