    Id love to know how many broken keyboards, mice and monitors your facts and logic have caused the over emotional, discriminatory and illogical to break. Some times I can almost hear them punching their keyboards

    Good posting.
    Thank you. I've done a lot of research on the issue over the past 10 years, both from a sociological and a psychological perspective. Research on both sides of the coin. In my profession, I have also seen situations first hand, though I rarely discuss them as they are anecdotal.

    As far as broken keyboards, mice and monitors that have been destroyed through my logical and fact based torturing of those who try to come at me from a position of ignorance, I've lost count. There are plenty, though.

    Apparently not long. Each and every one of the "A special right" votes is a non-member rigged vote. ANYONE can check that themselves. Not ONE DP member voted for "A special right". Typical of GM threads. Some extreme conservative or conservatives seem to feel the need mess with the poll dishonestly... especially when all the factual content of the thread is completely stacked against them.

    the desire for it is a seeking of one portion of the population to gain a measure of social acceptance from the rest of the population.

    No, I don't care if you accept me or not, all I care about is being treated the same as you. Big difference.

    I accept you. The conservative community simply has to work out its divisions on lgbt rights. This will happen.

    perhaps as an individual you do. however; if all this were a mere search for technical 'equal treatment' before the law; then there would be no "homosexual marriage" movement. there are a variety of other legal mechanisms for gaining all the "advantages" of marriage even without the tax penalties. this is an "equal treatment" before "society" movement. 'YOU WILL ACCEPT ME, DAD!', was how my little sister put the emotion, though i think she was a bit upset at the time, and not exactly thinking clearly.

    that doesnt make sense?
    for the majority its about EQUAL treatment and fighting DISCRIMINATION
    what logic says that fighting for marriage rights (something the is UNEQUALLY denied) makes it about something else and that fight for "other" things would make it for equal rights?

    was interracial marriage only about being accepted?
    womens rights?
    minority rights?

    Sorry but you have it backwards.

    If gays are allowed to marry the same sex then everyone is allowed to marry the same sex. Sounds equal under the law to me. Just because you wouldn't want to marry the same sex doesn't mean that you didn't have the right to do so.

    Why should they be forced to take these "alternate" methods? Which probably are not quite as simple as the Marriage License. The Marriage License is a government issued and recognized contract. People are looking to infringe upon an individual's right to contract when no rights were violated or would be violated by the other party. So long as the Marriage License exists, there is not a logical argument built upon rights which could excuse the use of government force against same sex couples in their ability to exercise their own rights.
