    Oh Maude...

    Suggesting that Forkie can get married only if she marries a man is unbelievably vile.

    Your opinion and those of people like you HAVE been made into action by denying gay people the right to get married. And going by the most recent polls, our society is being held up by a minority since the majority of Australians support gay marriage.

    Increasing minority or decreasing??? Doesn't matter.
    I am in no way belittling anyone. Please direct me to a quote where I have done such a thing.
    I am not trying to convince her and get her to change her mind. Why would I want to do that? I was merely commenting on the thread about the government backing gay marriage. Am I not entitled to do this because of my 'minority' view?

    yes, you are! i said that! but you seem to think that your way is the only right way. that is my perception, so shoot me. if you were just commenting you wouldn't have made this many posts in this one thread. if you didn't want to convey that you think your view is more correct or important or whatever you would've gone okay, whatever, that's my opinion, and bowed out. which sounds like an appealing course of action right about now.
    shrinking minority might be a better way of saying it. tired.

    ps. maybe one day i'll meet my mrs right too.. and marry her. i'd like to do that. my sister is getting married in january and that's really really special. i'd like that too. there is no single reason why i shouldn't be allowed to marry someone i love. sexuality shouldn't be a barrier. and i will be wearing a suit and tailcoat for the ceremony. no dresses for me.

    If you feel that this is the case, then good on you.

    You might want to read this article from the ABC then.

    That's why.

    Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services.

    People keep responding to my posts, so I feel obligated to answer their questions of me.
    I my opinion is of such little worth, then why is everyone repeatedly questioning my opinion? I would be more than happy if I am ignored and not constantly being attacked because of my views.
