It's stupid how gay marriage is known as gay marriage and not just "Marriage". Just because you have lunch doesn't mean you have 'gay lunch'. Just because you park your car doesn't mean you 'gay parked', amirite?

Do you call a wedding between a man and a woman straight marriage? No. Until they are both referred to equally as either just 'marriage' or 'gay marriage' and 'straight marriage' it can be considered offensive. Which it is.

I also know a heterosexual couple who call themselves partners, beause although they bahave very much like a husband and wife, they were never actually married. "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" says Shakespeare, and he's right. It doesn't matter how you refer to love, love is love. Although your non-homophobia is commendable, remember that hating the ignorant people is as bad as what they do, hating people for their sexuality.

@ThisChick The words "gay marriage" should only be used when protesting, otherwise, it'd be pretty fucking weird saying...

Lots of people use both the terms 'partner' and 'boyfriend/girlfriend'. It had nothing to do with tolerance; it's just a way of distinguishing that it is a homosexual relationship. It is not the same as a heterosexual relationship, and it is not demeaning to use a different term for it.

@ThisChick The words "gay marriage" should only be used when protesting, otherwise, it'd be pretty fucking weird saying...

Ok now see "partner" isn't specifically used for gay couples. Like, if you don't know whether someone has a boyfriend or girlfriend, you could refer to their SO as a partner. It's more commonly used with gay couples, but that's just how the word has changed. However, I say boyfriend or girlfriend for gay couples.

The marriage is still a legal partnership between 2 people who are in love, and the ceremony would still be exactly the same (although I'm not sure how they would be pronounced, because "husband and husband" seems odd). There's no difference that's worth pointing out.

So you're saying there is no difference between a man and a woman getting married and a (wo)man and a (wo)man? Because if there wasn't, there would be no such thing as gay. Because everything would be the same. There would be no gay sex, no gay anything, because doing it with someone of a different sex would be just the same.
It's to differentiate, because it is different. And different is NOT a bad thing.

Why can't everyone just love each other?

I'm Catholic and this is what I know: God is perfect; God is love. God loves you no matter who you are or what you do.
Which means that we are supposed to love each other. Regardless of everything, including any of the sins on our soul (which everyone undoubtably has), we are supposed to love each other as God loves us.

I don't care about who you are. I don't care about what you look like, what you believe in, what you've done. I don't care if you don't like me. I don't care if you're mean. I don't care about what your sexual orientation is. I don't care.

Because, while I might disagree with you on things, you are a human being, and that means that I should love you.

This is my theory on the whole gay business, It's estimated that the world will become far too overpoulated for us to all function properly by 2050 if our birth/death ratio continues. So, through Adaption, we have more children developing the "gay" trait in the womb as an embryo, its only us adapting to fit earths current needs, as we've done for thousands of years. It all comes naturally, for example, giraffes used to have very short necks, but with the growing need to reach higher up in a tree for food because food was so scarce on desert floors, they've grown longer necks through gradualism.Think about it, More gay population=lessening of earths population(in theory) and we would all live happily :) And for the people who say its a choice: You're born gay, they ran neurological tests on it and found the sexual part of a mans brain behaves similarly to that of a females and vice-versa. google it.

Not my marriage not my problem

It needs to be called gay marriage because this is a world where it's illegal in most states, so you need to say the word gay in front of it so people know what you're talking about. If someone was to say "I support the legalization of marriage," it would make no sense, so it's just used to help people. If it was legal all over, however, it would be a different matter as there would be no need to differentiate between the two things. I support gay marriage by the way, and I get where you're coming from, but I think it's fine saying gay marriage.

I've heard this joke before, and I think it basically means that hopefully in the future, same-sex marriage will just be called marriage, the same as how opposite-sex marriage is just called marriage instead of straight marriage, or how two Chinese people getting married is called marriage, not Asian marriage.

But, yeah, as everyone else has said, we aren't at that point yet. And there's nothing offensive by referring to it as gay marriage or same-sex marriage to differentiate. And ThisIsWhyImRite probably said it best - at the moment, same-sex marriage is a hot topic, which is why it's talked about as such, whereas people of all sexes and sexualities do the other activities, so it's not a good comparison.

Once gay marriage is legalized in all states, it will become known as marriage. For now, it can be used to differentiate the two, or as a deragatory term referring to same-sex marriage.

Marriage is when two people(regardless of gender) come together and recite vows to take each other as partners in life. It doesn't matter if it's traditionally between a man and a woman because marriage SHOULD be between two people who love each other. How many many man-woman couples get married because they actually love each other? Traditionally marriages were arranged in the old days. Now we have the freedom to choose who we marry and when we marry them. Don't you think that means a man could choose a man and marry him? A woman should also be able to choose a woman and marry her? I don't see why so many people are opposed to same-sex marriage. I'm a christian and i believe in god. I don't understand how just because someone is christian that means that they can't support same-sex marriage. It's not an excuse. I don't remember this exactly but I'm pretty sure in the Bible it said to treat all men equally.

The differenve between toast and french toast is bigger than the difference between marriage and gay marriage.
Toast is rectangular pieces of bread inserted into a toaster. French toast is usually a different type of bread, and it is prepared much differently, and without the use of a toaster.

No, they get married with the same type of ceremony, and they are equally legal (or they would be, if it was legal at all), and the couples are probably equally in love.

I've never actually heard someone refer to two men or two women dating as a gay couple. It's always just been been 'boyfriends' or 'girlfriends' or just 'they're a couple.'

Maybe when it isn't so controversial and is accepted everywhere, it can just be called marriage. Right now though, it's widely debated and it really wouldn't make sense to see people fighting to legalize just marriage, would it?

@Mrpie23 Maybe when it isn't so controversial and is accepted everywhere, it can just be called marriage. Right now though...

Also, the fight isn't really for "marriage." Heterosexual marriage is legal. We're fighting to legalize same-sex marriage, but not say, bear marriage. So it makes sense to differentiate which type of nonlegalized marriage one wants legalized. Once it's legal, all marriage could be referred to as marriage (in Canada I've only heard it referred to as marriage, not gay marriage).

Without being married to the one you love, you don't get certain benefits. You won't be allowed to visit them in the hospital if they are in critical condition. Being married gets you better insurance, better prices on homes, and more. And besides, you're missing the point. Gay marriage has nothing to do with sex; it has to do with the principle of the matter, and more importantly, love. Wouldn't you want to be able to say "this is my wife" or "this is my husband" when introducing the person you want to be with for the rest of your life? So shut the hell up.

I'm asking why would they choose to be gay in the first place? If they know that being gay would cause them to be the target of a lot of hate, why would they initially make the choice to be gay?

Rebel against God? It sounds like you're assuming that all gays are Christians. Not everyone is interested in doing what the Bible says is right.

I have gay friends who still go to church. And they're still gay. I don't think when they came out of their mom's womb they were like, "You know what, I think I'm gonna go against God for the rest of my life."

@1310447 (secretninja): wow, i really would like to list 100 ways why you are a complet narrow minded biggit but ill just give you one personal example:

my brother was born gay.
he was very religious.
in his suicide note he expressed a complete self loathing of his sexuality because it was apparently against god.
he tried everything in his power to be straight. but as he would know, straight isnt a choice anymore than being gay is.
he then gassed himself in the car until he died of asphyxiation.
And do you know the weird thing? He was the only christian in our family.

f*** you

I know someone who came out as a lesbian. She was a grown, married woman with three daughters. As time went on, she naturally became more attracted to women. It wasn't something she chose. It came naturally.

I probably should have finished. She tried to ignore her attraction to women. She talked with her husband about it. But it couldn't be ignored. Eventually she just accepted it, divorced, and remarried. She's a lot happier now being who she really is than trying to ignore it.

Look. We can both agrue here. But we arent Going to change our minds. The way I see is that does it really matter if their gay or not. I mean dose matter is if their kind hearted. I azlso see it as how the way the african americans were judged that way. And were the people who wanted them to die and tthe people who judged them were right?

Your only argument against gay marriage is that it says so in the Bible. You can't use a Christian document to ban something that isn't only for Christians.

Where does it say He doesn't like it? The Bible? What page, which colomn, and what paragraph? I'm just wondering...and capatalize God next time if you're so religious you don't think certain PEOPLE should exist (yes, shockingly enough, they are people, too) because He doesn't like it.

Let me open up my pocket bible.

Leviticus 20:13

If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

New Living Bible Translation:

If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.

It doesn't matter how many sins you have in your life if you do not repent for all of them. And you can't repent for a sin if you think it's okay.

Only if you eat with your partner is it called "gay lunch", or if you park with your partner, is it called "gay parking"

Marriage is much more than a sandwich, or parking your car. Its a man and a woman coming together, body and soul. Its ordained by God, and people have been screwing it up from almost the beginning of time.

@danieljc2008 Marriage is much more than a sandwich, or parking your car. Its a man and a woman coming together, body and soul...

You don't need to have a religious ceremony to get married. Marriage WAS a religious ceremony, bringing two people together under God. Now, it's a legal right that should be granted to any and all consenting adults.

@danieljc2008 Yes.... he does. And no... it isn't.

Marriage is a financial situation in which both partners are mutually beneficial because marriage is a legal organization. Not a religious one.

@danieljc2008 I've already posted the truth. I'm not going to repost it or start arguing about it.

And by truth you mean opinion. Because not everyone thinks God exists, I don't. In mine and billions of other people's opinion marriage is an act of love and has no gender.

Well it is what it is.

gay marriage(an oxymoron) is not the same as a real marriage, so they therefore have different names

They were talking about how a sin is a sin. Not the punishment we deal out as society.

@You are quite wrong. If they are all equal, then why can a murderer be put to death but an adulterer can walk free?...

Because God's rules and man's rules are not the same. Man gave different values to different crimes,but God sees all sins with the same value.
