    For those who support gay marriage

    Do you also support polygamy, polyandry, open marriages, and other non-traditional family structures?

    I don't support someone having to get a marriage license to get married.

    I could personally care less if two or more people wanted to be together in such a way.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    People can do whatever they want. In terms of what the state chooses to recognize as a domestic partnership/marriage/whatever they want to call it, I support two consenting adults.

    Polygamy?
    Polygamy has quite the tradition behind it.

    Re: For those who support gay marriage

    I support gay rights, but I have a really biased opinion when it comes to this.

    I said none of the above. I would only support "two consenting adults," as someone above me had posted.

    To me, having more than one spouse seems unfair, unfair to the spouses. It seems uneven and wrong actually. I know what I say sounds arbitrary, but unfortunately that's just how I feel. I wish I didn't feel that way.

    Nonetheless, a very good poll though, because it brings up a good point.

    "Support" in what sense? Morally or legally?

    Re: For those who support gay marriage

    I do not support any of the above for the reasons that I cited in this post:

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/1057980894-post179.html

    None of these can show benefits to the family, children, the human condition, or the government.

    I don't support anything but a normal man and wife marriage.

    The state of being gay should be defined like it truely is...

    If everyone on the planet suddenly became gay then humans would be extinct in about 100 yrs.

    This alone is enough to show that being gay is a physical/mental defect and not to be promoted in the courts or schools but studied to better understand this flaw in human nature for the reproductively challenged.

    Since everyone on the planet would not become gay, your argument has zero merit and is nothing but a ridiculous straw man.

    Further, please show us some peer reviewed research that demonstrates that homosexuality is a physical/mental defect. And please refrain from both the silly naturalistic fallacy of the biological nature of reproduction or the whether or not gays can procreate. These are both loser positions/arguments that I can easily destroy, and I'd rather see if you've got something substantial to discuss rather than tired, old, foolish arguments.

    Oh, and the "common sense" argument is pretty laughable, too...just in case you thought of using that one.

    So, peer reviewed research that shows that homosexuality is a physical/mental defect. I'll wait.

    So what? Is legalizing gay marriage going to make everyone on the planet suddenly become gay?

    So if that's the case, should everyone with ANY "physical/mental defect" be banned from getting married? If not, what's so special about THIS "physical/mental defect"?
