    You need to stop reading the Daily Mail.

    If signing a marriage contract makes you appear less likely to be an abuser, you presumably believe that heterosexual marriage should also be outlawed to protect the vulnerable as well.

    Secondly, how can we instill something as socially advanced as gay marriage when heterosexual rape in prison is still a running joke and more men are being sexually abused in America than women?

    I feel like this sentence is made up of three of four separate parts that have nothing to do with each other.

    Did you lose a bunch of paragraphs when you hit the "post" button?

    Fighting in their corner? It wasn't the gays that passed this, it was liberal judges.

    Instead of well done to gays, you should be saying well done Communists for their infiltration of both the Democrat and Republican parties.

    As for the decision, it will not change views on gays. Television and media are doing that. It has to do with how people view the government.

    This thread is the greatest amount of confused nonsense I have seen in a long while. How on earth can anyone conflate removal of bans on "gay marriage" with Communism and prison rape? As for "more men sexually abused in America than women" you must have your head in a paper bag to even say it, much less think it.

    I would like to see alcohol treated like smoking: Your choice but make sure you know the health consequences and don't let your drunkenness impact others negatively. Also restrictions on advertising and drinking in the presence of minors might be good.

    So you would hold off on gay marriage because you don't want to send the message that gay people are not a threat because you believe that the current best deterrent for criminal activity is that you might get raped in jail? (by supposedly gay people).
    Wow. Just wow.

    You sure did manage to beat sonship and his "I don't support gay marriage because it will make me look like a bigot when I criticize gay people" thread.

    He believes that most male prisoners (of which you have quite a number in the US) are sexually abused in prison.

    He clearly doesn't know the statistics.
    About 0.9% of US adults is incarcerated.
    Whereas about 1% of women report being raped in a given year and close to 20% in thier life time:

    I do not know what the lifetime statistic for incarceration is but I believe it is lower than 20%.

    Now I am really curious what you would say if you did not choose your words "gently and with great care."

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 19.3% of
    American women are raped at least once in their lives and about 43.9% of women
    have experienced another form of sexual violence in their lives.
    In contrast, only about 2% of American men are raped at least once in their lives and
    about 23.4% of men have experienced another form of sexual violence in their lives.
    To sum up, as every sensible woman already knows, women are much more vulnerable
    and at risk than men for being raped. Women are quite conscious of being violable.

    So, apparently according to the 'logic' of Thequ1ck, we should ban heterosexual marriage
    until such time as there's much less danger to women of being raped or sexually assaulted.

    Homosexual activity may occur in prisons but there are like very few who actually identify as homosexual and would want to seek marriage. The phenomenon is well known as 'situational homosexuality'. It presents no obstacle to same-sex marriage.

    Because they have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

    I started a thread on this a while back.

    Why is it that the jail system is a whore house for gays?
