It's illegal to smoke pot because the powers that be saw fit to not make it legal.   You know, like gay marriage.

I realize, if I choose to smoke pot, that I cannot walk into a court of law and demand that my choice be made legal.

Is it illegal to smoke pot because it's a choice?

Is it illegal to call in a bomb threat because it's a choice?

Is it illegal for a SS couple to get married?

I'm sure you're trying to drive home a point.   I have no idea what it is.

Do you need the details on why I'd call you ignorant and insensitive?  Aren't they obvious?

I'm willing to accept that there are some asexual or bisexual people who could choose to have a heterosexual lifestyle, marriage, etc, who have chosen to have a homosexual lifestyle.  I'm not sure why that matters, though.
Here ya' go, burnsyluck.

And, if your reasoning for denying gay marriage is that it's a choice, well, your argument is made.
"Being a choice" isnt a reason for denying anything.  There's more to that dumbass argument.
Sure it is.    Gay marriage is not legal in many states.    If you want to get married, don't choose a same sex partner(which I thought we agreed, was a possibility). 
"Being a choice" isnt a reason for denying anything.

- Why can't I call in a bomb threat?
- Because that's a choice you make.  
- Huh?


Sure it is.  Let's go back to pot.  

Dopers say "I ain't hurting nobody."
burnsyluck has said "Gay marriage ain't hurting nobody!"

You cannot legally smoke dope in most states. 
You cannot legally marry someone of the same sex in most states.

Choices.   This is based on your statement of "I'm willing to accept that there are some asexual or bisexual people who could choose to have a heterosexual lifestyle, marriage, etc, who have chosen to have a homosexual lifestyle."
This.

So why are you avoiding questions?

Being a choice is not an argument for or against anything.

Don't like the "GOTCHA!!!" moment when it's used against you?

I dare say you are not an expert on human behavior or sexual attraction.   You do not know if people are born gay, straight, bisexual or asexual.   In fact, when confronted with your lack of knowledge on how people are born, you quickly, within minutes, agreed that people could actually be born with no sexual attraction to either sex after denying such a thing could ever happen.   You've also agreed that sexual attraction, despite your lack of expertise, could change from one sex to the other. 

Nonetheless, back on point, one of your main contentions has been that gay people do not choose to be gay and, therefore, should be given the same rights to marriage.   You have contradicted yourself, repeatedly, over the last 3-4 pages.   

While biz is batshit crazy(or an expert troll), he does stick to his argument regardless of how retarded it is.     Maybe you could do the same.
Um, what?

You can't controll what gender you are attracted to. This is a fact. Some people are only attracted to one gender. Some people are attracted to both or no gender.

You do have a choice in who you sleep with.

All of this is irrelevant to the marriage question. Even if it was a choice, gay people should still be allowed to marry.

What's your point?

Or...allow it.  Haven't we had this argument?

Anything is possible.  Anyone can choose to get married to someone they have no attraction to.  I could also choose to jump in front of an 18-wheeler.  But some choices don't make sense.
