I personally think that it should be legal cause it doesnt hurt anybody and everyone has the right to marry who they love.

[i]What's wrong about consensual love, and the showing/cementing thereof through marriage ceremonies, between two people of the same gender?

Well whats so right about it either???????????

It's emotion that people don't have any say over Calinkidd.
Why should homosexuals suffer because they have feelings for a gender that society deems in most cases 'not the right one'?

1. The expression of love between two consenting people in a way that harms no one is surely always a good thing?
2. Freedom to express this love is a good thing (unless you're into oppression in which case - I hear North Korea is a nice place to be).
3. Why should gender matter when it comes to love?

It shouldn't I just don't want my 4 year old sister asking while we are at DisneyLand " why are those two guys kissing?" I just do not think little kids should have to see that with their innocent eyes.

Honestly a child raised by homosexual parents could ask the same question of a man and a woman kissing.

This i understand, but not homosexual PDA, PDA in general.
Me and my girlfriend never kiss around kids because we don't think it's our place for them to have to ask about homosexuality at such a young age. A young age being ten and under.

This wasn't your argument though, you previously said that it was morally wrong and asked what was right about it, so how does PDA infront of infants support your moral claim?

By that logic - NOBODY should be allowed to kiss anyone in public, lest you have to explain why that man and woman are kissing.

Not that no one should kiss in public, but i think it's good to keep a low key PDA regardless of sexuality. No kid should really watch things getting too frisky.

"Those two people care about one another and kissing can be a physical way of expressing those feelings." Seems like it would be a pretty easy question to answer.

...would you have a problem seeing a girl/guy kissing? I'd think not. This is baseless.

No but she would see her parents kissing at home, so to see gay kisses will just disturb her.

How do you know this?

If explained correctly, as Mage demonstrated, kids would adjust.

...How much do you want to bet? I can almost gurantee that the same thing was said about a little white girl seeing a black person who's not a slave way back when. As a child you don't HAVE any of those preconceptions, they are learned. She would view it EXACTLY the same way she viewed first seeing a guy/girl kiss.

They're exposed to heteronormativity at a young age. They've seen princes kiss princesses in Disney movies. Why should their exposure differ based on sexuality?

Avorne, "homosexuality in general" is not a feminist issue. This thread is about gay marriage in particular, which is a feminist issue.

Even though I feel like its COMPLETELY wrong, people have the rights to marry whoever they want.
