    what an incoherent pile of wank. The reason that one household falls apart has nothing to do with the gender make up of another household.

    Not as much as straight marriage and having extramarital gay (or any) sex on the DL.

    I wouldn't mind his existence at all if he could formulate anything resembling a coherent argument.

    No. Blacks do enough to fuck up families on their own.

    It's not exclusive but it was stated as a generalization which throws off individuals like myself who are raised in stable two parent homes.

    That was perhaps the dumbest argument against gay marriage that I've ever read. And I've read A LOT of dumb things. So black men turn violent because they were raised by single mothers and no man was around? Wouldn't having two fathers, then, double the chances of them NOT turning violent? This article sounds like it was written by a 10-year-old who spent all weekend watching Fox News stoned.

    Arps' article isn't total BS. I completely agree with him when he writes:

    "What consenting adults do in the privacy of the bedroom is not my business".

    Unfortunately, the rest of the article is complete nonsense.

    It was one of the biggest stretches I have ever read. I dont think I could even put that together if you put a gun to my head.

    A generalizaton, or relevant to the discussion? The article wasn't written about gay marriage rotting white families.

    People fucking up their families has nothing to do with their skin color.

    I know families where the parents are white multimillionaire attorneys and physicians, and their whole family dynamic is messed up. So are their kids.

    I also know white, latin, black families who are dirt poor and who are fucked up.

    PEOPLE have problems. Period.

    This is so absurd. Marriage in this country has been crumbling without gay marriage and now they're going to pull this one?

    It is funny when they pull the "sanctity" of marriage. But never mention the "sanctity" of divorce. Which is where most marriages end up

    So, there's a problem apparently with deadbeat Dads in the author's racial heterosexual demographic.

    I think it odd to lump all black people into one culture or community based on their skin colour.

    This is one of the most infuriating parts of the same-sex marriage debate. Somehow extending the right to marriage to a group of people weakens the "institution" for those that already have the right. Don't people think anymore?
