I voted no, simply because I don't see a need for it. It's not part of the homosexual life style and seems to only be about sticking it to the status quo. There are psychological reasons for it and equally against it. I think if we accept it publicly in this sense then what's next. The only valid reason I can argue it with little conflict is to compare it to incestuous marriages, yet not one homosexual advocate will argue for the rights of incestuous couples, not even incestuous homosexual relationships. I don't care about the argument who can breed or not, it's irrelevant. And in most cultures what we consider pedophilia is legal in some countries, so it's cultural and not abnormal in nature. I don't care what other animals do to survive or to masturbate or why they rape. I also voted no because heterosexuals outnumber homosexuals, it's important to us/me that we retain a sense of gender roles for psychologically healthy children, and no I'm sorry but homosexuals will just have to sacrifice them selves, to fee like the outcast, that they some how don't belong.. because quite frankly you don't. My answer isn't about ignorance, bigotry or malice of any kind. It's simply for the mental health of our children. They have enough to figure out without one more obscure sexual fetish to ponder. I'd rather the FEW homosexuals growing up to be confused about their sexual identity then every single heterosexual. Has anyone thought about the suicide rates of those who can't figure out they are gay, and what effect that would be on heterosexual children if they feel they are not gay. What if these roles were reversed?... No one likes to be the outcast and I have no doubt children will mimic homosexual behavior just to fit in, be a part of something if the acceptance of it grows. There is talk already about homosexual advocates wanting to Black List anyone who doesn't support homosexuality from jobs and college. If that isn't a social ill then what is....
