G.ay Marriage in Minnesota

Dayton passed the bill today that will make it legal for same-se.x couples to get married, starting August 1. The House and Senate passed it, yesterday and the day before, respectively. Thoughts? Irateness? Utter joy?

I think its good. The government should just stay out of this as much as possible and let people marry whoever they want.

..........This shouldn't even be a law, it should be common sense. Like marriage between couples of the opposite gender is common sense. This should be too. The government shouldn't have a say whatsoever in this part of anyone's lifestyle. Same with abo.rtion. I'm not for it or against it, however the government shouldn't be stepping in saying what one can and can't do.

Why do some people discriminate against ga.ys again? The only difference between a ga.y person and a straight person is who they're attracted to. Se.xuality doesn't define a person, and the government shouldn't have a say in our personal lives anyways.

There repressed gays? Only logical explanation. Or they hate men being treated like women, because they hate women? Also l esbians because they fear women not needing men?

Very acute observation, human. Makes more sense then all hom.ophobes being bible thumpers, because I've met plenty of religious people who have no problem with ga.ys. It looks like every extreme problem human kind has is based of off misogyny.

Well, according to that theory, there could never be any woman opposed to ga.y marriage.
 
 
Right.

Women can be misogynists too, why else would they let themselves be objectified and trivialized.

^This. Every word of this. Se.xuality doesn't define a person.

"Women can be misogynists too"
 
This does not even remotely explain the phenoma in question -- I don't honestly believe that that many women are that self-hating.

"Don't be mean... Play nice... Don't judge others on how they look..." Thats what mothers and fathers and socitey tells our children. Why don't the adults also have to follow these rules? It is basicaly judging someone on how they look, saying gay people can't marry. Try looking up some reasons against gay marriage... those reasons are ridiculous!

And plus, "It looks like every extreme problem human kind has is based of off misogyny"? Really? Is this what it comes down to, people are so desparate for a simple explanation that they'll accept the BS feminist position, "just blame it all on the patriarchy"?

Christ, you again? Yes, hom.ophobia stems from patriarchy, as hom.ophobes think that being attracted to men is too 'soft' or whatever. Female misogynists don't hate woman, they just believe that their place in society is in the home, they are resigned to it. It's not a simple explanation out of simplicity itself, it just happens to be that simple. Once more, you express no opinion, just contradictory statements likely out of boredom. Dismissed! Go read a book.

XD I can't even. The guy who doesn't know how to put together a proper argument for something, acting like he's on top of the world, telling others to "go read a book." What's next?

Just because you don't agree entirely doesn't mean it's not a proper argument. I don't think I'm better then everyone, I just know I'm better then you. You're the one who doesn't even come up with an argument other then contradictory, hypocritical statements and some strange website so you don't need to explain yourself. Seriously, dude, where do you get off on all this? Either make an opinion or go away, don't just try and contradict for the sake of contradiction.

Stuntdude: Before we go any further, what is your opinion on ga.y marriage? Just so we can get this out of the way and people will stop complaining about you not having an opinion.
 
 
Sorla: Trustr me, I would be racing stuntdude to contradict you and human. However, my job runs late into the evening, so now is my only chance.

Sorla:
 
You're right that agreement isn't what makes or breaks a proper argument.
 
"I don't think I'm better then everyone, I just know I'm better then you."
 
*than
 
"contradictory, hypocritical statements"
 
[citation needed]
 
"and some strange website so you don't need to explain yourself."
 
Haha what? Is this sentences supposed to make any sense?
 
"don't just try and contradict for the sake of contradiction."
 
Alright, I'll  continue doing what I've been doing then, good advice.
 
Gryffindor:
 
I've only posted so far about a couple of the points Sorla brought up, but while I'm in the thread I may as well respond to the OP:
 
Some people don't seem to realize that it isn't an issue of g.ay marriage. Not only is se.xuality about as far from a simple binary as anything gets, but gender itself is not simple binary. No, it's not an issue of g.ay marriage, it's an issue of any marriage that doesn't represent the majority, and in a country like the U.S. it's absolutely ludicrous that minorities are still persecuted on this scale, and it's absolutely ludicrous that the vast majority of the people in the country don't even understand the issue they're fighting about. There is no sensical argument you can make to the contrary -- every marriage should be held to the same standards and treated the same way by the government and by the society.
 
So there's my opinion, for future reference.
