    just so you know, the older generation of gay men still cant believe it. Read it from an expert:

    I can believe it, but I also know that there will still be pockets of society (usually rural bible thumping areas) that don't accept it, just as those areas still don't accept racial and cultural diversity.

    I can't believe that there are gay men out there capable of holding any sort of monogamous relationship stable enough to count as marriage.

    You don't need to be a sociologist to know that gays aren't capable of commitment.

    You would be wrong. I've been with my now-husband almost 27 years. Many of our friends have been partnered for 20 years or more.

    Hmmmm. That's an irrefutable truth that my 15-year partner might not want to hear about. Even with our properties, vehicles, pets, in-laws and late-night pillow talk, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before your wise portend proves that we don't need sociologists--or specificity.

    Which is why I agree with him. We're doomed, what can we do? All of the choices and work we've done to pick well, stay attractive to each other, and plan for the future are totally fucked, because gay.

    The sooner the better, not least of the reasons being that so drama queens will stop bitching about it.

    But, being drama queens, they will always find something to bitch about. Plus ca change, and all that.

    If God can give one boy a sister and give another boy a brother, marriage equality isn't that big of a stretch.

    Of course, in my mind, that's not my only talking point for or against marriage equality.

    Really? And you think straight marriage has set the bar too high?

    I AGREE!! The "gay law of the land" is the "open (season)" fuck-buddy relationship.

    Fairness and non discrimination.

    I've always thought marriage was a great start, though. Once the world sees that we and our families are like them and theirs, much of the rest will follow. Maybe not all in my lifetime, but it will.

    -Convince congress to pass the big gay ENDA legislation.
    -Along those same lines it would be symbolic for an executive order on federal contractors.


    "The hetro population has not set the bar for marriage very high".
    50% of the marriages fail but consider the other half remain together. they are the remarkable ones. Dont under estimate the importance of your own relationships; that its not as important or the quality as what your parents had or have.

    1 million percent agreed. There seem to be a lot of guys who are fatalistic about relationships, and it's just not necessary. There are a lot of guys out there looking for a mate. If you're open to it (and realize that committed relationships take work, they aren't magical Disney events), you'll succeed.

    my husband and I have been together for 20+ years, and still going strong; looks like until death do us part. But......neither of us want a gay wedding, or a gay marriage. But support marriage equality, because I feel you should be able to have the choice of more than one husband, if that whats missing in your life; just as straight men should be able to have more than one wife.

    Or maybe for our half brothers. One wife and one husband or two.icon_wink.gif
