Embedded in that right, Sorceress, to marry someone of the opposite gender, at least for you, is the right to choose to marry someone you're actually attracted to. If I told you you couldn't marry a man because he was black, or because he wasn't a Christian, and actually made that a law, you would have a fit. If I told you you could only marry the undesirable hairy goat-man, you might be a little perturbed. Why? Because you also have the right to choose to marry someone you find sexually attractive. What public policy do we forward by forcing homosexuals to (if they want to marry) marry someone they feel no sexual attraction for?
