    Gay Marriage(US)

    Should be allowed based on the wording of the US Constitution's 14th Amendment's first clause. All arguments against it have been shot down. Opinions?(I am looking for a fully thought out intellectual discussion. Nothing better to stimulate those neurons than a good debate.)

    It should be allowed just because it's right. Being born bisexual or homosexual isn't a choice just like how you're born black or white. Anyways, it's going to get passed eventually. People used to hate blacks but now they fit in perfectly. In a decade or so, it'll be passed.

    I completely agree, however, I am getting tired of the bigoted arguments by the people on the christian right. The slippery-slope arguments are especially annoying(considering they are logical fallacies). What I don't get is how gay marriage can hurt straight marriage. For those straight couples out there that don't agree with it, I would think it just strengthens their marriages because they would consider their marriage more special. The only thing that has hurt straight marriage is divorce. The cherry-picking biblical arguments is even more annoying. And when you try to explain the separation of church and state(the establishment clause in the First Amendment) they say "Well it doesn't say complete separation of church and state or even explicitly say that." But if you look up the meanings of the words used, the intent and the meaning of that clause is quite clear. Oh and here's and interesting statistic. In a 2012 gallop poll, only 63% of Americans supported interracial marriage. I bet it wouldn't be allowed in most of the southern states still if it were not for the courts. Civil liberties should not be up to the states.

    It's an interesting topic to discuss but I honestly can't see any single reason why it shouldn't be allowed. People are born with preferences that they just have, they can't be fought. And neither should they have to. Gay marriage is already allowed in most other countries, why would America be any different? The only people against this are just completely outdated and apparently have no idea that we're living in 2013 where being gay is (or should be) completely accepted in most high-level countries. My parents are gay, they always have been, and I turned out just fine.

    My thesis is pretty much that every human is bisexual but ofc each human has his preferences and he will only turn to the other side if the circumstances either make him or he has no way to fulfill his needs with his preferred way.

    A good example are prisons, you often see that people who have straight marriages outside turn either gay or bisexual to fulfill their needs in an extreme set of circumstances. Now it is true that some people will give in after 5 years, some after 60 and some might never. But the point I'm making is that humans are a very adoptable race who either change their surrounding if they dislike them or if that is not possible change themselves in order to adapt to the new surroundings.

    As to if it will be legalized I actually don't give a fuck.
    To me marriage has no current value at least not the one that it used to have in the past.
    But I can say since it doesn't harm anyone and it would make the other side happy then why not allow it.

    I don't mind, but please don't use the argument that they were born gay, it's not something that is an excuse, and it doesn't need an excuse to be attracted to the same gender either, it's just a personal taste.
