CU/DP would not have the same "meaning" as marriage. Just the same benefits/right. There would be a different view of them in society.
But, if you admit that, you can't carry this argument on for another 150 pages, can you?
Do you try to be a dick or does it come naturally?
Marriage carries special significance for most people. I wouldn't want to tell you that you aren't allowed that significance. Maybe you just like bring able to tell other people how to live their lives?
Why would allowing gay marriage increase society's gayness but allowing civil unions wouldn't?
"Daddy, what's the difference between a civil union and a marriage?"
"Well, son, normal people like me and your mother get married. Filthy, heathen gays have civil unions because everyone knows two dudes shouldn't get married."
