    Why does it matter if people are born gay or not? If science proves one claim to be wholly accurate what difference would it make regarding Equal Protection of the Law? I bet both my healthy and heavy family jewels that even if science proved sexual orientations are biologically driven and not subject to choice that it would not change a majority of homophobes. Their only response would be to claim gays still do not deserve equal rights due to a "birth defect" and that scientists can create medication to degayify those unfortunate souls.

    So for the purpose of this discussion let's assume being gay is strictly a choice. How does that justify denying gays Equal Protection of the law?

    I hope you don't consider this getting off on a tangent - but I've always looked at it this way: You may not be able to control who you are attracted to, but you can control who you sleep with. And sense I reject the idea that we cannot realistically expect people to curb any of their carnal desires. I DO NOT believe that just because you are attracted to someone, that you are entitled to sleep with them.

    Having said that, I see no danger and I see no reason that society has any interest at all in restricting homosexuality among consenting adults... Or in denying any of the rights and priviledges afforded to heterosexual couples.

    Religion is a choice. You aren't born a specific religion, and yet, we guarantee your right to choose and practice whatever religion you want.

    Conservatives hope for a gay gene. Then they would work for abortion rights. In their little minds, they would have a reason.

    I suppose there may be a gene that makes homosexuality more likely than not.

    As I get older my tastes in sex have changed. Not that severely to swinging both ways, but they have changed.

    And as I always joke with my friends. What if a gal with a fine bottom you can't do w/o dumps you and then you meet a guy with a similar rump? Wondering if it feels any different aren't ya ;)

    Call it a civil union and no one cares. Call it a marriage and 80% of the country gets pissed if they are the same sex. Pass a law that gives civil unions the same protections as marriage and still no one would care.

    If you insist on calling it a marriage you aren't interested in equal rights you are interested in brow beating people with whom you disagree.
