Are you so enlighted that your personal beliefs are "correct" and anybody who opposes you is wrong?
If so, then you sound just like bistiza. Congrats.
I've never felt that way and it's absolutely ridiculous to say that I have.
Just because I defend my beliefs well doesn't mean I think anyone who opposes me is wrong. In point of fact, it is others who continually attempt to tell me that I'm wrong because their beliefs are "correct", so I'm rather the opposite of what you state here.
You get yours but you shouldn't get to stop other people from creating their own. Allowing gays to marry (as they are now) changes nothing in anyone else's marriage. It's harmless. Unless you have a specific harm in mind?
When I say "I'm married", I don't want anyone to mistakenly think it's a homosexual relationship. I want the term "marriage" to have an inherent meaning of a heterosexual union, and I feel harmed if that distinction changes.
The real issue is whether a person can choose who they are attracted to.
Since who you are attracted to is only a factor in the decision of who you are with and is NOT something that by itself defines your sexuality, in a very real sense it doesn't matter whether you can choose it or not, as you could always choose not to be with the gender you are most attracted to if that's what you want to do.
Having said that, I believe you CAN choose who you are attracted to, at least to some extent and that extent differs as much as people do.
For example, there are many people who are attracted to their same sex, but who take part in heterosexual relationships because that's just easier in our society. According to your definition, would those people be straight?
First, it's not "my" definition - it's the definition supported by logical reasoning. I didn't create it, nor did I ever assume ownership of it, so let's not call it "mine".
Second, you are the sexuality based upon your action. So if you are only with those of the opposite gender in romantic and/or sexual situations, then you are heterosexual. For the purposes of defining your sexuality, it doesn't matter why you with that gender, only that you are.
Anyone against the agenda(s) of the left qualifies enough as "the right" to not matter enough to get to be offended.
This has to be satirical, and if it is, it makes a great point, which is that everyone has the right to be offended about things unless they are conservative and don't want to accept or tolerate the agendas of the left.
I also think it's hilarious that bad_luck has decided he is once again Czar of Everything and therefore has the right to tell others what is and is not "harmless" or "offensive". The laughs never stop coming when conversing with you, BL.
