    Don't like it, sorry.
    Thank you for proving my point. Gays don't want to be married, they want to destroy the institution altogether.

    You can't destroy something that has long been destroyed.

    But yeah we just want to do that to confound straight people, you see every gay person is secretly a boogeyman.

    Watch out, we're gonna getcha.

    Ten years from now, I guarantee marriage will be very much like it is now, a way to establish a legal kinship between two people. The only difference that is likely to be a "major" difference, is that instead of some places only allowing two people of opposite sexes to marry, everywhere in the US, people can marry another of either sex, no matter their own.

    It's like telling the people way too smart to fall for it that emperor's New clothes are nothing and he is naked.

    No point in talking sense. To them you ate wrong because you disagree. I wouldn't even bother with the conversation.

    It was a post in a debate thread.

    I am talking about what was brought up by you. When it comes to some forms of polygamy that we have seen here in the US, the most common that occurs here in the US (at least up til now, although I believe this will change) is where old men from the FLDS clans marry really young girls, in their mid teens, with permission from their parents. The laws that allow for this, laws that allow parents to give their children permission to marry prior to them being 18 is one of the things that needs to change, especially if we are considering removing the limitation on numbers of spouses a person can have legally.

    Not too long ago, people who claimed that bigamy would follow ssm were castigated for conflating the two and accused of "slippery slope" thinking. Now it seems a foregone conclusion. Go figure.

    The slippery slope is a real thing.

    By "bigamy", do you mean "polygamy"? Please specify.
    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.
