“That argument is flawed, because you're trying to compare things that are drastically different. Two gay people being in a constructive relationship based on consent is nothing like the examples you noted. Violence and molestation are not based around consent. Please don't compare my loving relationships to ones that actually harm people. Thank you.”

“There's also the chance that it could be biosocial in origin(i.e. both from biology and the environment). We know that one's environment can impact numerous aspects of the body, and that our biology impacts how we construct our environments. Biology and culture do not exist in voids, and are constantly influencing each other.

Of course, it's not like it matters that much on a legal or personal level. Even if being gay (or any other sexuality) were a simple, black and white choice that one could make, it has no bearing on equal treatment. It's not destructive behavior, and it does not negatively impact anyone else.”

“I keep forgetting that "Big Gay" is the most powerful political force in the universe. I mean, we control everything! The hearts and the minds of the people, the economy, elections, and even the weather! The discrimination and oppression are merely fabrications to fool the masses.

“Every unnecessary surgery is dangerous, regardless of age. There have been errors in the surgery on babies before, in which afterwards they have to reconstruct the whole thing or attempt to turn it into a vagina. Personally, if something dangerous was going to be done to me and it wasn't being done for any sound medical reason, I'd want to give consent first. And you can't give consent right out of the womb.”

“Well, I meant that there are multiple levels of asininity when trying to enforce sodomy laws. I was referring to the pointlessness of trying to use police forces to hide in the closets and try to catch people "in the act", McCarthy era style. Of course it's unconstitutional, but that doesn't mean that there aren't other important reasons for not enforcing such laws.”

“No it's not. You are discounting the fact that the state would be in direct violation of a SC ruling AND American citizens Civil Rights if MS or any other state attempted to enforce an Unconstitutional law! Civil Rights are worth protecting whether you think so or not.

And I'm stating the reasons why not even MS officials would be ignorant enough to attempt this type of Unconstitional activity because they know full well what the repercussions would be!

But if they actually did anyway, it IS the Presidents job to enforce SC rulings.”

“I know that we all sit back and laugh at Mississippi for their inadequate sex-ed programs, but this is more infuriating to me than funny. This sort of policy has intense, long-lasting ramifications for young people that can distort their views on sex and sexuality, as well as cause them to make risky choices. And we're not just talking sexual and reproductive issues, but also psychological and psychosocial complications. It directly teaches them lies, and it indirectly causes them to adopt sexual myths as fact because they have to turn to alternative resources for information, which are usually wrong. It's not fair to kids.”

“That's not true. Many animals release oxytocin, a bonding hormone, after sex and while in contact with each other. Sure, not all animals do this (the majority go on their ways after copulating) but others, especially in monogamous species, stick around with their mates. Surely they share intimate feelings with one another.”

“"But the reference he made is that after the same sex-marriage had been accepted in many states (not a federal gov issue) many are asking to change the definition, that is the extra right he is referring to."

It is not an "extra right" to point out an unjust inequality. Should abolitionists or women's rights activists have just sat on the sidelines while the "majority" got to decide on who received voting, property, and autonomy rights? Should they have sat back because they would be using the "extra right" of "redefining" what it means to be a citizen? In my personal opinion, no. No one should sit back when they are being considered second-class citizens. Marriage, as a legal contract, should be available to all equally.”

“Uhh, yes. Why wouldn't they give services to pedophiles? They are just people who are attracted to children, nothing more. That's a pretty arbitrary reason to deny someone service. Even if you mean child molesters, which is not synonymous with pedophile, it still wouldn't really matter, unless you were somehow providing services that involved children. Excluding that special condition, why shouldn't businesses be forced to do business with their fellow man? We're all equal, after all.”

“I don't understand how anyone in America could support this bill. It basically states that it's totally fine to treat other people as second-class citizens. If your state doesn't like the idea of equality, then fine. Put up, "Arizona, Home of the Hetero Supremacists" greeting signs so that it's obvious that discrimination is what you value.

I hope that Brewer has enough sense to realize just how terrible this piece of legislation is, and will veto the bill.”

“"Unfortunately legalizing "gay marriage" puts religious freedom under attack."

Name one way in which it does. Just one. I've seen pretty much every excuse in the book, and none of them are cogent, reasonable, or honest. Maybe you'll have some fantastic new viewpoint that clearly demonstrates why making people equal under the law impacts religious freedom, unless that "freedom" is the ability to oppress others.”
