There are differences between the legal status of race and sexuality, and there are similarities.

"Most straight parents want straight kids, who would want their kids to face the bullying and harassment ? A cure would certainly be popular."

I wouldn't /want/ my kid to be gay, any more than I'd /want/ my kid to be a girl. Basically, I don't care whether they're gay or not. A "cure" would be atrocious because you're changing how your kid was born, possibly without their consent. All for the sake of no bullying? How about we continue to try to change the beliefs of homophobes and then maybe bullying will be lessened. Nearly everyone I know, gay or not, has been bullied for some reason or another. "Curing" gay people wouldn't stop that. It'd breed further hatred toward gay people though, thinking they're too poor or stupid or something to be "cured". It'd give more "arguments" for why they don't deserve equal rights, too.

!crakrjak kids get teased for having red hair or being too short. Just because we know the genes that encode these traits doesn't mean we are going to try and "cure" them. Your constant insinuation of homosexuality as a disease just proves your own bigotry and lack of knowledge on the subject.

You can not control who you fall in love with...it just happens. Anyone should be able to marry whomever they want...who are you to judge?

patchgrabber: The fact that the case wasn't thrown out immediately and had to go to a higher court to be 'upheld', proves that I'm correct.


There you go, moving the goalposts again. Since you seem uninformed I'll tell you that a provincial supreme court is roughly equal to your district courts. Odd as it may seem, people do appeal rulings. You do understand how an appeal process works, yes?

"patchgrabber: 5cats has already confirmed that polygamy is already making inroads up there in Canada, so quit with the sarcasm."

Do you even read these posts? This is the "proof" you claim 5cats pointed out:
"@jendrian: Polygamy is next in Canada. Followed by I don't know what.
In Canada, pre-neptual agreements are worthless. Even a pre-nep arranged by two lawyers (husband and wife I mean) won't hold up. It's the "wild west" up here bro."

That's not proof, it's unsubstantiated fear-mongering. In fact, just last October our courts upheld the ban on polygamy, so you're just an uninformed idealogue.

Squrlz: A good link for once, one that explored all sides of the issue. The problem here is that if researchers find a genetic cause, like they supposedly did in rodents and then found how to reverse it, a 'cure' could likely be seen as an attack on gays.

Most straight parents want straight kids, who would want their kids to face the bullying and harassment ? A cure would certainly be popular.


And the commercial for it wouldn't be dissimilar to this recent one.

But, you can change who you love. The proof, people divorce and remarry do they not? Love could become hate, but your race will remain the same (unless you go through some surgeries and what nots)

@Draculya: A quick Google search finds published studies, and articles citing them, on both sides of the genetic/not-genetic divide. One of the better articles (which makes the case for a genetic connection) can be found here.

Regarding your belief that within every straight person there's a gay person "thrusting to get out," I have to ask: Do you believe that within every gay person there's a straight person "thrusting to get out"? Why privilege one orientation over the other? Just curious.

"Can't wait to hear how you're going to object to the polygamists that want their 'civil rights', now that the word marriage has become as malleable as aluminum foil."

I would think you would be for polygamy Crakrjak. It's all over the bible in a positive way. Personally I could care less. And besides the people that want polygamy are such a small number it is not even on the radar. Bringing this up now is just the sad words of a loser. Not that you are a loser but that you are losing the fight.

@gerry oh shoot. Please don't tell me Bruce Lee is gay too.

@squrlz I don't think there is any evidence of a gay gene, or significant genetic predisposition, I think it is in all of us. Inside every straight person is a gay person thrusting to get out.

I think some people choose to acton their impulses, some people have never considered it and some repress their urges.

It's right to recognise other people's union, though, and specifically to grant due legal status.

@CrakrJak: It'll take some smart people to figure out how to operate a marriage with more than 2 people. But a marriage with 2 people is pretty easy and nothing new. Why does it matter who does 2 adults are? (yeah, exclude pedophiles).

Congratulations Markust! Speaking from experience, nothing is more fun than watching the more retrograde citizens of your state attempt to undo an idea whose time has come. They go out in bright blazes of Failtastic glory, stock up on the popcorn.

Marriage Equality just passed the Washington State House. Next stop Governor Christine Gregoire's desk for her signature. Once again love and tolerance has one.

haha up until now I had forgotten that me and my wife are an interracial couple. I didn't even consider what it would be like if we weren't allowed to marry. Now that I have... I don't think I care that much, sure we're getting some benefits from being married, but other than waiting longer on immigration, we'd still be the same, as I know most gay couples here feel about it so... yeah, it's the same.

Gary, I agree the feds and the Supremes are wimps and want to pass on making a stand, but a marriage in one state is currently honored in all states. This prevents polygamy acrossed state lines. So if one state allows gay marriage, then ALL states have to honor it. There's no way the Supremes can pass on hearing the case.

Unless the feds get a constitutional amendment passed banned it, then it's no longer an issue.

The final vote for Marriage Equality in Washington State just started. There are easily enough votes in the House for this to pass and the Governor will sign it later this week. Even if the bigots get enough signatures for a ballot to take away these rights there are enough votes in the state to defeat it. We were the first state to approve Civil Unions by popular vote (53%). We will have marriage equality in my home state by November. Suck on that haters!

When the only answer you have is 'I'm offended' you just lost the argument.
