    Politically-speaking, those choices are all over the place and don't fit me into any one category - right-wing, left-wing or even centrist. However, these are how I view the respective topics.

    Because instead of ID cards I believe the government should scrawl our names on our foreheads in permanent marker pen, lest we forget :rolleyes:

    Not everyone fits into a box :tongue: If you have your own views, that's fine and legitimate, regardless of whether you can be "labeled" as something

    Some interesting responses,

    Why are some people for Gay Marraige but not Adoption?

    It'd be interesting if all the responses were put in to poll form so it's easier to assess.

    I'd hazard a guess that it's because whilst gay marriage is between two consenting adults, adoption involves a child and many people believe the child as a dependant minor shouldn't have two parents of the same sex for various reasons (most of which, in my opinion, are very weak) .

    This would be a great way of filtering potential partners... I don't think they would approve of being 'screened' though. And I can't afford to be picky :p:
