We have way bigger problems than homosexuality going on in this world and while I don't agree with the lifestyle myself I've never judged any person for that choice and never treated them any different because of it. I have family and friends that have come out over my lifetime. It isn't a lifestyle people choose that I honestly believe. How about we spend this much effort on making our Governments more efficient at actually doing their job? What a concept....We waste so much time trying to deny people their civil rights and liberties we lose touch with the things we should be concentrating on.
: I believe that I might have come up with a compromise to this whole problem that will make everyone happy! People in the gay community want the same rights as married couples, but dissenters don't want the word "marriage" corrupted. So how about we let gay people get married, but call it something else?
: You homosexuals will have all the exact same rights as married couples, but, instead of referring to you as "married", you can be... butt buddies.
: Instead of being "man and wife", you'll be... butt buddies. You won't be "betrothed", you'll be...
: ...butt buddies. Get it? Instead of a "bride and groom", you'd be...
: ...butt buddies.
: We wanna be treated equally!
: You *are* equal. It's just that, instead of getting engaged, you would be... butt buddies. And everyone is happy!
: [from the lesbian crowd
] Well, what about lesbians?
: Well, like anyone cares about fuckin' dykes!
*the crowd goes into an uproar*
: Oh, God, I was sure that would work.
