There's no good option for voting here, and I think the answers are designed to create an excuse to show how bad liberals are.
It depends on what the reason is. If you oppose SSM because you have an irrational hatred for gay people, then yes.
Feel free to rationalize or ignore it any way you want, but it doesn't really matter because society has pretty much already decided that equal rights are a good idea, and the younger generations (<40) are overwhelmingly in favor of SSM legalization.

It's a social construction and act. Marriage also has numerous legal implications, including but not limited to:
• Who can manage your care if you're in the hospital
• Custody of children
• Ownership of joint property
I don't see how it's a good idea to have all this managed via private contracts.
...but it is the business of the State, whose job is to prevent harm to others. As such, I'm pretty sure we can regard condoning incest and polygamy as harmful.If a brother and sister wish to marry, if a woman wants to marry 48 men, heterosexual/homosexual or a mix or whatever isnt my business....
SSM, we should note, has not been shown to cause any genuine harm. Assumptions of such, without the supporting evidence, are another example of the bigotry involved in the issue.
Sucks to be you, then. There is nowhere you can go, and no society you can live in, where no one is going to tell no one else how to limit their lives, or allow radical individual freedom. Bummer, dude.I am personally tired of other people/government trying to dictate how other people should lives their lives or limit them in their ability to live whatever life they deem is right for themselves.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
