    Tell me about it! I have to face that with NCAA Football . . . And I have all of my life. I was born enjoying College Football; and I have been discriminated against since I can even remember!! I want to change some Rules in the Game . . . What's wrong with the Blocking Assignment of the Pulling Guard to Inside up to head up with the tackle first Linebacker Inside? . . . You don't have to play in someone's feces and you don't have to have parades or anything of the sort . . . I would like to see some evidence of some rule-changes as well. No one is afraid of AIDS since it is not an Airborne Disease, but everyone is so afraid of Rule Changes in College Football. Don't be so NCAA-Football-Phobic!!! What about the BCS? It sucks!! NPI

    Thank you!! That was the only point I was trying to make. For some strange reason,though,certain people seem to think I was saying that homosexuals are a minority. I didn't say that..nor do I care if they are or aren't. They're PEOPLE,and that's what matters!

    They already have equal rights. They can get into civil unions, which is a ceremony very much like marriage. They're just fishing for special treatment. I'm not against gay people, but I hate how they're doing this.

    Only in some states -- and those states are very few.

    Civil unions do not exist in many, many states - and where they do they are generally not equal, even on a state or local level.

    For example, my partner and I were on the registry in NYC for years. Therefore we were considered to be in a civil union by most people -- that carried NO official recognition, NO rights, and at that time NO guarantee that he could even actually enforce the health proxy I had prepared. In 2001 - when I had a mild stroke -- it was pure luck that the hospital that the ambulance decided to take me to DECIDED and at at that time it was a decision, to allow him to make my decisions for several days.

    If you think that is the equivalent of marriage, it isn't.

    Kind thoughts,

    Reyn

    I can't rave it because it sends the wrong message. I think that gay people should have equal rights and not special rights.

    I don't see any problem with equal rights for all people. We should be able to pursue our right to freedom and happiness. If that includes equal rights for people of the same gender being able to marry then so be it.

    Gay people do have equal rights. They are pushing for extra special rights that no one else has.

    really? I didn't know I had the right to marry in every state... Had no Idea that when I visit the one I spent 20 years with that the legal system has concretely provided me with the ability to make end of life decisions, estate decisions and given me visitation rights. It's really nice to know I can now file a joint federal tax return. I really appreciate you summing this up for me... now if you'll excuse me I'm going to head to Montana to plan my wedding... I'm sure I will be able to get my marriage license and plan my reception anywhere I want just like all the straight couples! Yay for me and my rights! :-)

    You do have the same rights. You can marry somebody of the opposite sex, just like everyone else. Same rights.

    Wow. I think all people should be allowed to marry who they want. Who are we to judge? Politics and religion should never be grouped together. We were founded on religious freedom. Now we are no better then the people who forced fore fathers out of Europe. Our politicians try to incorporate their religious views in our laws. If you want a country of religious fanatics then move. I married the person I loved and I think everyone should have that right. 21st century? Seems pretty archaic belief. I know some one will quote a bible verse, which has no place in creating laws, you have that right.

    And until you can say "Sure, they can marry--a person whomever they love" it shall never be equal no matter how you justify it.

    It's equality because everyone can marry a person of the opposite sex. If somebody never finds a person they want to marry, does that make them unequal because they can't marry someone they love? No.
  • Yoru Annabel... 2012/02/21 23:16:50 (edited)
    Yoru
    just by saying that everyone MUST choose their partner from the opposite sex it then is inherently unequal, tailoring solely to the needs of heterosexuality, while leaving out others. Until ANYONE has an equal opportunity to marry the person they choose without adhering to the "qualifications" others have decided, it shall never be equal.
