harpmolly BS: On Same-Sex Marriages (812* d) RE: BS: On Same-Sex Marriages 14 Sep 07


So you're telling me, Ake, that a couple who spends $100,000 (or, pardon me, 50,000 ;)) on their wedding day would throw a tantrum, smash the cake, and declare the whole thing worthless if the reception hall next door hosted a gay wedding at the same time? Give me a break.

Greg said it brilliantly:

"Being comfortable at the expense of denying others equal opportunities
in the world on the basis of the race, gender, or sexual orientation
is NOT a human right. "

The civil rights analogy is apt ("Apt!!!" as Lisa Simpson would shout). Frankly, if there were black people who were offended by the comparison, I would be sad for them--that they couldn't feel empathy and compassion for another group of people being discriminated against because of their biological makeup and others' irrational prejudice.

As to the screws, if I needed them, you'd probably need to go up a size again. *grin* Unfortunately, my considerable derriere is still firmly affixed to my body. You'll have to try harder next time.   

"I believe multi -person sexual relationships are much more common among "homos" than "hetros"" --akenaton

"The data: True for male homosexuals, wrong for female homosexuals.
One better should always consider these two groups as separate. Averaging data here makes no sense." --Wolfgang

Wolfgang's answer doesn't negate mine. Cultures across the world have engaged in multi-person sexual intercourse (my, is it getting hot in here?) The ancient Greeks may have had their share of gay orgies, but there are thousands upon thousands of harem girls down the ages that would contest your claim. If you'd care to re-word your statement more specifically, we might have the basis for discussion. And again, some data to back it up (on Wolfgang's part too) might help, but I know the chances of getting you to quote any sort of statistics is less likely than the chance of Britney Spears taking up the hammered dulcimer. ;)

"Oops, I did it again..." *tinkle tinkle* "I played with your heart..." *deedledeedle*..."got lost in the game..." *flimflamflimmaflamma* hmmm...I like it!
