I love my adult sister but I don't have a "right" to marry her. Are MY civil rights being violated?

    Yes. IF civil rights truly means equal rights for all.
    But civil rights does NOT mean equal rights for all. It means equal rights for members of protected groups:

    A protected group is a group of people qualified for special protection by a law, policy, or similar authority. In the United States, the term is frequently used in connection with employees and employment.

    U.S. federal law protects employees from discrimination or harassment based on sex, race, age, disability, color, creed, national origin, or religion. Many state laws also give certain protected groups special protection against harassment and discrimination, as do many employer policies. Employer policies may also protect employees from harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation or marital status.[1]

    Where discrimination on the basis of protected group status is concerned, a single act of discrimination may be based on membership in more than one protected group. For example, discrimination based on anti-Semitism may relate to religion, national origin, or both; discrimination against a pregnant woman might be based on sex, marital status, or both.[1]

    Sorry that your incestuous love is not protected. Siblings and minors may lawfully be discriminated against in various ways.

    Marrying one's sister will never be an issue for a gay man so I'm probably not the best person to answer this question.

    No. Equal rights are for same sex couples ONLY.
    You have a right to do anything that isn't specifically against the law. If your local law says it's illegal to marry your sister, you have no right. IT'S NOT ILLEGAL TO BE GAY.

    But you don't need to, you already have familial rights. No one can deny you the right to see her in the hospital. Your parents can't keep you from even knowing how she (heaven forbid) died. Your parents can't easily just chuck you out of her will. You are already protected.

    As for the rest of it, that is between you and your sister. Have you talked to her about this? I know I'm not that keen on my brother.

    I'm not entirely sure why you're talking about gay agendas in the answer options, and incestuous relationships in the question, but I have no problem with either.

    You're not ruining the gay agenda, and all you are exposing is your lack of a credible argument against same sex marriage.

    lOh, I see. You're just wanting to marry your sister.....lol

    Personally, I don't give a crap who gets married and I understand the principle of equality for all, but you're making a lame argument here. There are serious repercussions to marrying your sister, there are no repercussions for same sex couples marrying. As far as I am concerned, marriage is an institution of religion and the State should keep its nose out of it entirely. Which means no benefits from government for married couples which is discriminatory against unmarried people.

    AIDS is not a repercussion of gay marriage, it is a repercussion of promiscuity. Another false argument from you.

    Where did I say civil rights for all is lame? By stooping to putting words in my mouth you only further expose the weakness of your arguments. You can try to disguise it, but your poll is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to denounce gay marriage... or just to troll.

    I picked this answer for the "STFU" part. Do you really WANT to marry your sister? That's just gross. Oh, and gay people don't want to marry their sisters' either. Stop being such a jerk off.

    Not really. You want to marry your sister and she's okay with it, marry away. You might want to move down south though, so the neighbors will still talk to you.

    Homosexuality is not comparable to incest, apples and oranges dude. Marrying a PB&J is simply ludicrous.

    Actually I don't care, you want to marry your sister go ahead. It's still apples and oranges. And no it's not just for same sex, no one wants to deny hetero couples from marrying which seems to be what your arguing when you wrongly accuse us of only backing same sex rights. You are arguing three sides of a two sided coin bub, it really doesn't work.

    Yes. IF civil rights truly means equal rights for all.
    According to liberal logic yes. As long as your sister is an adult, you would be two consenting adults. That is the only criteria liberals put forth arguing for gay marriage. Under liberal logic it should be ok for you to marry your sister, mother, even your brother or father (See Woody Allen.). Under liberal logic it should also be ok for bisexuals to marry both a male and a female. And by extension if you were born able to love multiple people at the same time you should be able to marry as many people as you like (Just remember to say you were born that way, it's important to the argument). The notion that a marriage be between only two people is arbitrary and from the bible, or some other caveman, according to liberals. So polygamy should not be illegal either.
