    Whos business is it?

    If two consenting adult males voluntarily agree to exchange fluids, is it any of the governments business?

    Of course not.

    The government is becoming a nanny state that is way to far up in our business on a multitude of issues. We need to shrink the size and scope of government.

    Hey TM, that's great, but suppose instead of exchanging fluids, two consenting adult males voluntarily agree to exchange pokemon cards instead, or to exchange casserole recipes. Now whose business is it?

    Of course not. Only someone that believes the act of exchanging fluids is a sin would dare try to control the actions of tax-paying American citizens. Sounds like something those crazy liberals would do. They're such a bunch of control freaks.

    Oh wait...

    No. And personally, I don't see why anyone else should care. If you want to swap DNA - go for it. If you're an adult and consent to such, I could give a rats ass what you do... and don't really see why anyone else should care.

    Of course not. Of course this is no reason to allow anyone (heteros included) to get married.

    I know everyone was thinking it, but I hate one sided poles like this.

    No, I am not debating this again. Many other threads cover the gambit, this one will make no difference or change anyones views.

    Is this going to be a Goobieman-style, bury-the-actual-topic thread? What do you REALLY want to talk about? Sales taxes?
