    Who cares what the majority "wants"? Do you seriously lose sleep at night because somebody might be having gay sex on your block?

    Upsetting people by giving a group what they want usually ends anticlimactically.

    Upsetting people by taking rights from them usually ends badly.

    What does society lose if it allows same sex marriage?

    if your goal is a more completely happy society, thwarting the majority isn't the smartest move.

    I'll tell you what society loses from prohibiting gay marriage: delegation costs about something that doesn't ****ing matter.

    Of course not. It's such a simple question, yet it's one that the pro-bigotry lobby has never been able to provide an answer. So rather than even going through the motions to PRETEND to have a rational position on this issue, you just ignore the question entirely.

    Society gains because equal rights are extended to a class of people who previously did not have them. Society gains because more people are now able to have their partner visit them in the hospitals, make decisions for them when they are incapacitated, and share in their property.

    And even if society didn't gain anything, the people who would be directly affected certainly do. And that should be enough as long as society doesn't LOSE anything.

    I can't. This is important.

    I just told you. Refute it. And not with an opinion with support from one state out of fifty.

    Same thing it gains when it allows heterosexuals to marry.
