con't: the reality is, that parent and NON parent couples coexist under the same basic requirements of marriage. And gay couples MEET those standards. Denying it, doesn't help anyone's argument here. Not even for it's own sake. It's not evidence that gay couples don't deserve to marry, it's just evidence of resistance to the truth. And that is irrelevant. We coexist as religious and not. Old and young, rich and poor, educated and not, parent or not, and all other forms of diverse and REASONABLE standards of being a citizen. Do I have to repeat again that gay people are part of the law abiding tax base, so therefore that alone qualifies equal treatment that goes with their equal responsibility? Homosexuality isn't anti social, bigotry is.
