My Government class had a debate recently about the topic of legalizing gay marriage in the U.S.

It sems that most people in the class would have no problem with it... if it were two women. They were completely against two men getting married, but two women were fine. When the people for gay marriage (myself and about 4 others out of a class of 30) tried to tell them that it doesn't work for just one group, it's either all or nothing, they just kept reverting back to how two guys were gross and two girls were hot.

So Pit, what is your opinion on the topic of gay marriage?

I think it's downright disgusting that we even consider disallowing people in love to get married.

I'm against it, but only because I hate the concept of religion, and letting a larger percentage marry empowers the church even more.

I really don't think me, or indeed my class, were ever that backwards/immature. Maybe i'm looking at it with rose-tinted glasses... but yeh, I just don't see it.

The best question is: why should it not be allowed? I've yet to hear any decent arguments on that.

Agreed.
Who cares if they are gay or straight it really shouldn't make a difference

And its not like they're "destroying" the tradition of marriage like people who get married numerous times or for benefits do

Anyone should be able to marry anyone as long as they both consent. I say that because you shouldn't be able to marry an anime character or an animal

Gay Marriage should be legal of course there is no legitimate legal argument against it.

People who are ok with gay women but not gay men are quite frankly bigots. Its a view that arises from our construction of masculinity and has nothing to do with grossness at all and I bet any of those people would be hard pressed to explain exactly what is gross about gay men.

Since masculinity is constructed in part through the way men treat women by degrading them, objectifying them, and pursuing them gay men are considered more feminine than straight men by straight men. This often threatens their own masculinity as well as the social power they get from being men since two men together have twice as much power as one man.

I'm against gay marriage.

Why? It goes against nature, and we all know nature wins in most cases. They will feel their pain in due time >

Against.

Yes, I am catholic, so there's my reasoning. But civil unions are perfectly fine. It gives gay couples benefits of being married. Not sure why you need to fight for marriage.
#19
I think that if two people want to spend the rest of their lives together they should get married regardless of any other factors. **** they're just going to end up disappointed in 5-8 years anyways why should it matter if they're gay or straight.

It's natural for many mammalian species to engage in homosexuality.

I dunno, my politics class a year or two ago voted in favour of having compulsory EMA for every over 16 over having trools pulled out of iraq.

EDIT: All you people who voted against. Don't hide behind the anon title. Give one good reason that gays shouldnt be allowed to marry plz.

THIS! when i brought this up in my government class my teacher asked what i thought about "lab" babies or babies artificailly inceminated in a lab and i said it all goes back to natural selection. if any other animal was unable to reproduce they would be left without a second thought and eventually i pissed her off enough i got kicked outta class

Oh right your reasoning is religion, the last refuge of someone with no valid argument. So you say people shouldn't be allowed to do something that in no way affects you or hurts anyone because your religion is homophobic? Real nice.


Also for whoever said 'it ain't natural'. Well it is because you should realise EVERYTHING is natural. Humans are animals as you say yourself and we are part of nature, we are still bound by nature, people seem to think humans are outside of nature like nature is something reserved for stuff 'out there', it isn't.

I have a feeling I have just lost this argument... but my opinion still stands the way it is, I just don't like it.

No gay cowboy butt sex for me.

Animals aren't gay? Fvck that, I read that Dolphin males (the animal some consider to be smarter than humans) are exclusively homosexual until a certain age, and there have been cases of gay chimps, etc.
