    So then call it like it really is. Gay people want additional rights.

    They don't want to redefine anything. They want to be included in the institution of marriage.

    The rights would be for everyone. You'd be able to marry someone of your gender too.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Not at all. They want the same right straight people have- to be able to marry the people they are attracted to.

    They can marry a person of the opposite sex just like everybody else, that is what marriage is.

    Here we go defining things again...you're going to get Jerry all riled up and he's going to go Captain Semantics on your ass.

    Anyways, what most gays want I'm assuming is the same benefits afforded to married couples, benefits they weren't getting as civil unions, and as such they now want to take the word marriage to try and justify getting those benefits. Everyone is being a dick, across the board, both sides of the debate. It's not bigotry so much as it is stupidity from everyone involved. But, this post will likely get shot down/ignored and the debate will continue.

    Some gays want the title, some gays just want the rights. It depends.

    So you agree that they want additional rights.

    They want a right to be redefined and reevaluated. Though is marriage even a right?

    They want 'additional rights' that straight people are magically granted because there's strictly two tits, a vagina, and a penis involved?
