    It does not matter whether you are straight or gay. If you love someone very much, you deserve to marry them. You deserve to be able to be with who you you love for the rest of your life. I don't care what your religion is, where you come from, or whose words you live by. Everyone deserves a chance at marriage.

    And Max, how do you know that being homosexual is a distraction? For all you know, being straight could be a distraction. I'm only twelve and I've already figured that out, so when are you going to step up and figure that out?

    Mark Evans I couldn't agree with you more. I also like to hang onto these little ditties when outsiders like to point fingers at us and claim that we are all like that (racist or what have you) For those that are not knowledgeable of Alabama politics - they are clever, they are crazy, and the state motto is "We Dare Defend Our Rights." Yes, there are many backwards people here, but have faith that the new generations are not so closed minded - I just wish more of them around here were feminists,lol! I will not hold my breath

Parenting...oh my.

    Whew! Next they will be wondering how to explain to their children why a black man is marrying a white woman. Or, why a healthy man is marrying a paraplegic woman. Or, how animals can have babies without getting married first. (By the way, this is sarcasm.) If you hadn't drilled it into your child's head that only men and women can get married, it would not be necessary to explain anything at all.

  • Angela
    Angela

    What I think will be difficult to explain to the kids is why, after they a man (or woman) treat their partner badly by using mean language, cruel tones, violence, shaming, anger, or other negative things, THOSE two people are getting married. How will I explain THAT?

  • Emily Moyer

    I disagree with the fourth point though. Gay sex should be part of sex ed, too. It's important for heterosexuaals and homosexuals to somewhat know what they're doing.

    it angers me that my uncle and his partner have OUTLASTED all of the heterosexual marriages in my family (they have been together for over 32 years) and THEY are the threat to the "sanctity" - not the bachelor, bachelorette, newlywed shows, dating shows, the fact that over half end in failure (if marriage was a business, it would be beankrupt right now with how much it fails, but the gays, the gays are what's gonna bring marriage down....*flicks middle finger to the establishment"

    Maybe I'm an anomaly, but I have had internet discussions that have changed my mind. I think light and fluffy topics are nice too, but as someone who has a life filled mostly with housework and childcare, I feel I have to be involved in societal discussion not just to keep my brain stimulated but also because it gives me hope that I can help change the future for my children as well... It's disappointing to me when conversation is shut down over little things like whether pinterest is just for crafts or not. Peace!

It is a bright new morning in America for marriage equality. To think I'd live to see this day...

I am one happy citizen today!

I've taken some heat for my endorsement of President Obama, but the beauty of our democracy is that we can disagree and still come together as a nation.

    Why should anyone take heat for who they are voting for? That's what makes this country a democracy, everyone can vote according to their conscience and then talk about it. I'm not an Obama fan myself, but I celebrate everyone's right to choose the candidate they want.

    I think this is claiming that the term "homophobia" is a misnomer, not disputing the origins of the word.

  • Velvet Cyberpunk
    Velvet Cyberpunk

    homophobia is NOT a misnomer because thbe word means fear yes, but the orginial Greek meaning meant to fear, but also to be repelled by or to have an aversion to. Rabies is also called hydrophobia because when you are suffering from it you have an aversion to water because you can't drink it.

    Liturgical documents of the early Christian church in the 10th through 12th centuries show ceremonies for same-sex unions between men. Curiously, the doctrine based upon love & acceptance is now used as an instrument of hatred & bigotry by some. In many contemporary Western cultures, there are those who consider homosexuality & bisexuality to be abnormal. The truth is they're seen in many species throughout the natural world including the primates of which humans belong. Historically speaking, alter-sexualities have been part of every race & culture, socio-economic class & educational level, & have existed since the earliest of human societies. To some cultures this duel-nature was seen as a divine gift. Possessing two spirits was a powerful & celebrated occurrence. The following tale touches upon the many shades of humanity from love & friendship to obsession & prejudice. & it's FREE http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0... I use romance to help create tolerance. :)
