"Marriage by close relations damages the family by creating redundant kinship and the risk of passing on genetic diseases."
I thought marriage wasn't about procreation. Your own side's words. With access to abortion on demand, what's the issue?
The point was that is isn't equality if "someone can't marry the person that they love", is it?
Also, I thought domestic partnership laws that created a "separate but equal" class of couples which, by having all the legal privileges of marriage, except for the word itself, was unacceptable to the activists. Also, it's not ant-equality, any man can marry any women who they aren't related to by various degrees of relation, it's anti-redefining marriage.
