It's not a choice. If it WERE a choice, I would at least understand the arguments against gay marriage.
Then you should understand the arguments, because IT IS a choice.
I've clearly and logically explained how it's a choice to you and everyone else here.
Biz, what's the "right choice", in your opinion?
A) Being attracted to people of the same sex, and having a homosexual relationship.
B) Being attracted to people of the same sex, having no relationship, or a heterosexual one.
The point is that they ARE choices to begin with. No matter which is considered "right", they are all CHOICES.
I'm sick of so many people buying into the completely illogical idea that who you have a romantic and/or sexual relationship with is somehow not your choice and you are "forced" to do it based upon who you are attracted to - never mind that attraction is a product of various factors itself, which can and do change over time.
This line of thinking is an amazing fallacy purported by those who - for whatever reason - feel the need to justify homosexuality. Yet so many people foolishly buy right into it.
Society just didn't accept homosexual behavior as "normal". It's just not that hard for me to believe that some people still don't see homosexuality as "normal".
I don't think we should condemn or judge anyone for thinking any given sexual behavior is less than "normal". You have a right to your opinion, and like MikeT23 points out, no one is denying anyone the use of the same facilities or amenities based upon their "odd" sexual behavior.
Homosexuality isn't "normal", no.
S&M isn't "normal" either. But we let people who are into weird things like that get married.
But those people aren't asking for changes in the law that allow them to get married differently. For example, if they asked for changes in the law to allow for special "S&M weddings" where the entire wedding party beats up anyone that attends their wedding and no one can be prosecuted, that wouldn't be allowed because it's ridiculous.
All people are equal, right? Men and women can do whatever they want, as equals. Unless its marriage. Then there are specific rules.
Can you name something else in society that prohibits someone from doing something based on their sex?
All people ARE equal. I don't see any way marriage is different. Everyone can marry anyone of the opposite gender, no matter what gender they are to begin with.
