If you are not sexually attracted to the opposite sex, how can you make a baby with them??? Seems to me you can be attracted to them when you need to be....
Do you understand anything about the human body?

Guys can get a boner rubbing against a pillow; does that mean we're sexually attracted to pillows? If you get a guy drunk enough they can have sex just about anyone or anything if the right friction is applied in the right places.

You do realize we don't actually have to have intercourse to "make a baby"?

"Responsibly" means mom/dad in the home raising the child together in a low conflict marriage....
That's merely your opinion.

Millions of same-sex couples around the world are responsibly raising their children together in a low conflict marriage.

No, I'm saying just as you all claimed that civil unions weren't equal to marriage, so will they. They are doing the exact same things you all did....
They can try, but the won't be successful. Just like that old Canadian case you keep trotting out where their Supreme Court already ruled AGAINST them.

In the US they'll first have to repeal the federal ban on polygamy before they can even attempt to get a state to approve civil unions, which no state will.

Of course people change their sexual preferences all the time, whether they're gay or straight. Sometimes they like to be on top, other times doggy style, or oral sex, etc, etc.
What people CAN'T do is change their natural sexual orientation. Every medical/psychological expert agrees it can't be done and is harmful to even attempt.
Oh sure, people can pretend not to be gay or lesbian; they can even force themselves to have intercourse with someone of the opposite sex. That doesn't mean they've changed their natural orientation. It just means they're pretending.
Just as I can pretend to be right handed, and can even force myself to use my right hand for various "activities", it doesn't change the fact that my innate natural handedness is left-handed.
There are indeed some individuals who are naturally attracted to both genders- they're called bisexuals. They often go for years in a relationship with one gender, then switch to the other gender depending on who they meet.
But NO ONE can change their natural sexual orientation.
I don't believe in 'orientations'. I believe we are born male/female. I believe the term 'orientation' was a 20th century invention, made to attempt to integrate deviant behaviors into society....so sorry. What you say is a big fat lie.

I don't know....Utah might....

I can't say they won't be successful, especially if ssm is successful. In any event, the slippery slope is definitely a reality....

Of course you don't believe in orientations; you're a religious freak who doesn't believe in science.

So you're saying you could just as easily be sexually attracted to someone of the same sex? If that's the case, then you're actually bisexual- assuming of course that you currently claim to be sexually attracted to the opposite sex as well.

It doesn't really matter whether you "believe in orientations"; they exist nonetheless. Ask any doctor or mental health professional to explain it to you.

I never said it did, and every study ever done shows children raised in a 2 parent low conflict household are equally well adjusted regardless of the gender of their parents.

Well then that's just something you're going to have to learn to live with.

Same-sex couples will have the right to marry everywhere in the US within the next decade, so you better figure out how you're going to deal with your irrational fears of polygamy & incest.

Constitutional amendments like that are illegal, California's supreme court was smart and eliminated it quickly, if NC does not want to be smart then the federal supreme court will end it for them. Pass a law by popular vote, fine, but you know as well as anyone that the constitutions are not allowed to remove rights from anyone under any circumstance. However, of those nearing voting age, gay marriage is supported by more, so even when you do get these stupid laws passed, you know that you are only going to lose the support of the next generation, and they do outnumber our generations by quite a bit thanks to the bigots pushing gay people so deep into the closet that they actually *gasp* reproduced! Yeah, you all really screwed yourselves up with that one, the more you prevent them from getting equal rights, the more gay people that are born every day because of it.

So, let me get this straight, excuse the pun:

You asked a nonsensical and pointless question, and when asked why it is important to you, you accuse me of "deflection." Technically, it sounds more like either projection or prodding for your own sexual gratification. No other possible reason could possibly exist for asking such a question as the answer would prove useless in this discussion, therefore it is more likely that you are just wanting the answer for your own personal fantasies.

Guess. As for scary, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But a more important question is, what difference would the reality make on anything?
