I would like gay marriage to be legalized.... but....


I saw a commercial the other day promoting the legalization of gay marriage, and they were playing a sentimental song, while these gay couples were smiling and hugging, etc.

The commercial was supposed to make you feel warm and fuzzy about gay marriage as if it's something great that everybody should think is beautiful.

I don't agree with that at all. I think they should have the right to get married, but I do not like the idea of pushing gay marriage as something mainstream and heart-warming.

Seeing two grown men on tv hugging and kissing just seems wrong.

Because I don't like watching two dudes make out that means I'm living in the past?

Get the dick out of your ass.

Exactly. The point of this is not because gays want to be married (let them have civil unions), its that the liberals want to continue to destroy the family unit.

What if it was an interracial couple? Should the networks not show that, because it will offend "some" in the country?

You use the word "pushing" but what you are describing is merely showing.

That is what the agenda is about, it has to be viewed as fully equal or they are not whole people. Recognizing the right to marriage is not as important as understanding the fullness of the realtionship as being equal to any other relationship. Otherwise the homosexual remains marginalized.

Hetero couples are doing just fine on this on their own, fwiw

No seeming about it, it is wrong.

Yep, the visuals are off putting. When I was in college 2 of my suite mates (a suite is 4 rooms with 8 kids) were gay.

They were great guys. We got along well. One of them finally challenged me to go to a gay bar with him to see his lifestyle. It was called The UnderGround in Shreveport.

The weirdest thing was watching men slow dancing to romantic music together.

I learned a lot. I saw a lover's triangle between 3 gay men that caused a fight. I learned how to sit on a bar stool to send the sign that I'm not gay so that I don't get hit on.

It was like a scientific field trip. I did get hit on by one young guy who wanted me to go home with him. I politely said "Sorry, got an exam tomorrow. Gotta study."

Yeah, a black dude kissing a white dude is just as repulsive as two black or white dudes kissing.

Because a 23 year old single white mother living in Covington and still going out every Friday and drinking is still keeping the traditional family intact?

So in this thread you support SSM because of dogs and a 23 old Covingtion slut.

ETA, the dogs reference was the other thread.

As clever as that retort is, I'll ask again.

I ask knowing the answer...as I quite vividly remember my father and grandmother being viscerally upset anytime a couple on TV was presented as even potentially being an interracial couple. It was to them, as you suggested earlier, offputting, just seeing it.***

So...should networks also not show that (or should they not have shown that when it was still VERY taboo) so as not to offend my Dad and grandmother's sensibilities on the matter?

***ETA: MY bad, that was Zach who used that phrase...my apologies.

That is just them being racist. I hate how people try to compare racism to gay couples. It's not the same. Men are men and women are women regardless of their skin color.

The point is love is love no matter what gender the partners are. Homosexuals have been harshly prosecuted throughout history, as much as blacks. Obviously it is easier to tell who is black opposed to who is gay.
