    It was sourced from here which includes Daesh as although it might not be illegal in all of the countries that Daesh operate in, executions for being gay are standard.

    Kind of a shame that that is all you took from my post though. Completely ignoring the point of it.

    Says who? What is the reasoning behind this? Just because something has stayed the same throughout history and been traditional, doesn't make it right, especially when that institution excludes many couples and deems their relationship as not worthy of marriage, basically telling them their same-sex relationship is inferior to a heterosexual one.

    But thankfully people are starting to wake up and realise that the 'traditional' institution of marriage was problematic and unfair on same-sex couples wanting to get married just like any heterosexual couple would, and there is no reason why they should be denied that right because of vague prejudices and religious reasons.

    Why do you categorise people into female and male?

    Surely that's reducing their individuality as an individual.

    Still you can't deny that females and males are opposites like protons and electrons, north and south....There's things in this world that have to be opposite and the sides of a marriage are no exception

    As marriage is a social construct, surely you can engineer it differently, to allow a "pair of electrons"? Spinning in opposite directions even?

    Totally support it, I don't see the problem people have with it. Two people who love each other dearly and want to spend the rest of their lives together should have the opportunity to do so, regardless of their genders. The idea of finding someone who wants to be with you for the rest of your life; I can't think of anything more worth celebrating and everyone should have that right.

    You seemed to have ignored my reasoning for Daesh to be included. The point was that I was replying to someone who said gay marriage was legal in most countries, which it is not. Who cares if they aren't first world progressive countries? Are the gay people there not as important as in the United Kingdom or the United States? They are still a part of the LGBT community so no it is not 'a pointless battle' it is an important one to try and stop Gay people in less advantaged countries being murdered because of a lack of understanding and a lack of basic human rights. I am lucky enough to be born into an accepting society and to have these rights and privileges and I think its important than in western society we help our LGBT neighbours in these less privileged countries because they aren't so lucky.

    But everyone's either homosexual, heterosexual, or another sexual orientation.

    But that doesn't mean I go around categorising people into those categories.

    How narrow-minded.

    Never segregate anyone on the basis that they are different - such ideas gave power to the Nazis, caused black people to be subjected to slavery and caused women to be oppressed for countless years.

    Everyone deserves equality, especially for something as simple as a document confirming love.

    Oh and, please don't base your arguments off something like yin and yang - especially if you're going to apply it to marriage. What the actual **** lmaoooo, "yin-yang tell mi opposit gud thus everyting mus b opposit"

    I know what you mean, but do you really think you're going to change anything in the middle east or certain parts of Africa, where no only the government, but also the majority of their population think being gay is wrong? The gays over there are terribly unlucky to be born in such countries, and to protect themselves, they must hide their sexual orientation.

    How da *** is it immoral and wrong?

    Marriage offers the benefits of better hospital visitation rights to your partner and offers reduced taxes, making it institutionalised discrimination to deny same-sex marriage.

    Civil partnership now discriminates against heterosexual couples, as heterosexual couples aren't allowed to have one.

    Marriage should be between a man and woman. It's a religious ceremony and also its against nature to be gay, as they can't reproduce. I suppose it's a disease in a way.
    The only disease is religious extremism. We've seen the doings of that crystal clear.
