Of course they are not a requirement for marriage. They are a key identity of marriage though. 96% of marriages in fact.
Why do children bother you?

We should definitely get rid of all laws dealing with marriage to make it fair for everyone. Why should a couple, man, woman, or even beast (the next great taboo to be challenged by progressives) get different treatment than an individual? Is this about equality or is this just about a generation of unhappy libturds and their ilk crapping all over traditional American/Religious traditions?

How do you know what is normal?

I have been watching this stuff for almost two years.I don't say much, but Txgurl I thought you were better than that. I once thought you had a little class. This is the attitude that is tearing me apart. I guess I am going to have to speak my peace.


She has a lot of class IMO. There's nothing more classy than honesty. Why mince words?

between you and me, i don't think that you said anything offensive... i mean, there's nothing offensive about the fact that you find the male private member disgusting, and there's certainly nothing wrong with discussing masturbation. the fact that a good many people try to act as though they've never done it is just plain silly. everyone knows that they're lying.
I can't speak for women, but there are two types of men when it comes to masturbation. Those that admit to it, and those who lie about it.

while i suppose that there are some women who have never mashed one out, i'd wager that the number of liars is much greater. i'll give you an example. when my daughter was around 7 years her aunt saw her with her hand inside her nickers and told her that it was dirty and nasty. my daughter came to me crying and asked my opinion. i told her that if she's worried about it being dirty, then she should be making sure that both her hands and her hoo-hoo are nice and clean... and that some things are only meant to be done in private.

the really ironic part of the entire exchange is that when i discussed the matter of what people tell my kids with my brother in-law he said that the same aunt mashes out two or three orgasms a day. go figure.

A lady acts like a lady. She apologized, therefore that is what makes her a lady, when you offend someone. It is classy for someone to be classy, in a elegant manner. When someone does you wrong, there is no need to degrade the other. Honesty is the best policy, if you use it wisely.

Ill Approves Same Sex Civil-Unions
Tell me how this topic has become the most degrading topic on here? I don't believe this topic was meant for everyone to be so disgusting. I am talking to everyone who lowers themselves to discuss sexual acts. All of you sound like a bunch of 13 year old kids discussing sex acts. I don't know how this topic has got this far, but you people really need help. I am not talking to the people who do not engage in these discussions. I wish the moderator was doing their job. From what I have seen this topic has been closed, the majority of the people on here are just a bunch of nasty perverts, straight and gay who like to argue about the way you do it. I don't see how the ones who originally started this topic can stomach how it has became. Why do any of you argue with someone who does or does not agree, when they act like a lower class, illiterate idiot? Why are you wasting your time on them, it only makes the other person look bad. Maybe it is time you all look back and reread this topic from the beginning to the end. It has became so vulgar and shameful. Why do you think that some of the public has a problem with the gay community? Don't any of you get tired of this ? I don't know about anybody else, but I am tired of this argument being shoved in my face, rereading these posts confirms my opinion. This post should be rated R and not allow children to be able to read it. I find it sad how people have become so numb in acting this way. There are many people who get offended reading this stuff, if it doesn't offend you, maybe it is time you reevaluate your morality, mannerisms, whatever your grandmothers would not say or be around. What has this world become?.........

please explain the difference between a civil union and marriage. i do believe gay & lesbian couples should have the same rights i do as a married heterosexual. do civil unions insure the same rights as marriage or not?

No, they are not the same. We don't qualify for the 1400+ federal benefits that marriage affords. That will change, soon

If you've been lurking for long, you'll know that the trolls/haters in the room are the ones who go into vivid technicolor regarding various sex acts that they like to imagine two men, or two women, engaging in. I've yet to see any other person discuss details of sexual mechanics, other than to defend a position or disprove an allegation.

If you continue to be offended by what you read, you should consider the source and/or consider opting out of the thread.

Where did I say children bother me? Oh, that's right.... in your paranoid delusion.

"They are a key identity of marriage though." Is that supposed to mean anything other than a demonstration of your inability to form a well reasoned argument? Procreation is NOT and never has been a requirement for marriage. PERIOD. Now go ahead.... make up some more whiney sound bites that proves your stupidity.

Evidently, you don't have children or have never raised them, or you would know that 13 on up are very sneaky, and have access to go on other peoples computers. Anyone can have children, but you have to raise them, and be active in their lives to know what they do. Now, you would know this if you had teenagers in your house, you have to give them some space, and in that time you hope they pick and do the right thing. This topic for a teenager is a porno dream. Heck you guys are probably talking to a teenager and you don't even know it. Someone on this page needs to be on a moral high horse so to speak, this topic is getting out of hand. The moderator needs to be fired for not doing their job. Just because you seem not to care about others feelings you need to get off of your high horse! My message was not just to gay people it was to straight also, get that right. When people start talking about sexual acts you got a problem. THat is not about civil marriage. Does a man and a woman who marry talk about their sex lives, hardly ever, unless they are writing a book. I am sure the man who got this started did not intend for this site to become so degrading to mankind. What are you twentish?
I wish the President would read this site. Maybe someone should send him this and see if he doesn't start back tracking so his children don't see this crap. Or even better maybe Mitt Romney should read it, and make it in the REAL public eyes and prove where are morals have went. Talk some more about beastiality, maybe this could work for the Republicans benefit, since no one wants to stick their neck out and clean up this forum and since to many think a person with morals is wrong. No wonder it is people like you who are causing so much trouble for the real people who want a simple quiet life, just to be together, and that is keeping your own business at home. Nobody cares, about people who remain quiet, and live their lives in a quiet manner like most people do.

No, I usually stay quiet, but this is getting out of hand. Something needs to be done with the trolls. I know who is on these threads who are actually giving information on what is going on from week to week with the states and where they stand on things. THat is my right , and anyone else who chooses to do so. This site needs to get cleaned up, I am sure you would agree. You are not going to go anywhere with people when you fight with them about this crap. You above all, have been very good in sharing information about what is going on in the legislators and states. I would think many people have got on here to follow, but the trash that is coming out of this thread is ridiculous, anyone with any morals would go along with me. People who come on this thread and start talking the smack about sexual acts needs to be ignored and they will eventually go away. You just play into their hands, and makes everyone on here look like an idiot. Come on, you have to agree that this is getting out of hand. Would you want your grandmother to read this as it is now? Most of these discussions are so perverted and you don't see this? Like I said, I like to see what is going on from time to time, and the information is out there to get on here....but you have to get through the disgusting conversations to find out what is going on. I thought this topic was adult conversations as in social affairs. This is turning into an X rated topic. If it keeps up, how far are you guys going to let it go? I think we have a real big problem here. As I said everyone has the right to keep up, it just needs to be cleaned up.

Posts are regularly deleted from the thread. I have to believe it's because they cross the line. Topic moderators must surely have their hands full. You know that you can report a post, right? I've done out several times.
