    The entire purpose of a democracy is being bale to create, change, and repeal laws and policy based on a society's forever changing values. If we are not allowed to change the law blacks would still be enslaved, women wouldn't be bale to vote, etc.

    really?
    actually it is
    want to point out where gay equal rights was granted for gays and it lead opening the floodgates for every conceivable form of marriage under the sun.

    Please show us proof of this strawman, we'd love to see it.

    yeah i get the part about habits, its seems only the medical community has embraced it down here.

    Im an engineer and we use both and I think its so dumb especially when metrics are based off of tens, the much more logical system.

    I honestly believe its a jobs / union thing lol

    I buy that many... probably most... are born gay, but not every single one. I have known several who were very adamant that it was a choice for them. Primarily women. One woman was very straight forward about it... she got tired of men treating her like garbage, and women treated her better.

    Humans are such a complex species that the notion that they/we do anything consistently and without exception is patently absurd.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It's really not surprising at all to me to see Uruguay or Iceland come around to this well before the US. This has almost always been a puritanical country, so despite the founders' wisdom on keeping church and state separate, we really don't have that, at all. Hell, sodomy laws were still enforced while Holland had legal gay marriage. Same deal with assisted suicide or anything else religion claims tyranny over.

    Why does it matter if it's a choice or not?

    That is interesting about some lesbians, but can you really blame them. Still, unlike some others I'd rather ask and take their word for it than claim to know everything.

    Sounds like she was unable to deal with her bad dating choices and took an easy way out.
