    What seems unnatural to me is entering into a relationship with someone I'm not attracted to in any way, and trying to make that work just to conform to a perception of 'normal' or 'natural'.

    I don't want to start a fight - for me it is a case of what seems natural. Yes there is likely influence from a religious child hood which I no longer practice.

    It does not seem natural. I have some great male friends but don't need to marry them to solidify that friendship. My arguments will be the same as everyone one else's with a similar view and there will be the same counter arguments this. I saw posting as pointless.

    Hand raised - now I'll crawl back I to my box.

    I think you will find that gay people wanting to marry are not wishing to "cement a friendship" but to formalise a loving, committed romantic relationship- which is not something you likely have with your great male friends.

    Can I ask why your relationship with a woman is more deserving of legal recognition than that of a same sex couple?

    It may not come naturally to you but I don't think it is natural to have relationships with people you aren't attracted to. The whole institution of marriage is not "natural" so I don't understand this belief.

    I dont think I see the point in responding. The arguments for and against are all the same.

    Sex is pleasurable and designed or developed the route purpose is to procreate. If marriage is not natural then what's the deal with same sex marriage - Dont marry

    Just because someone has an inclination some way does not mean it should be promoted or even accepted. Many are born with a violent disposition or it becomes evident in later life. For some it is a conscious life choice. Others due to social environment. Whatever the reason we in society do not generally take the view that it is ok to go around hitting people or for a man to hit his wife etc. We dont accept violence.

    My input on this particular thread is not going to lead to any good and I'm not interested in starting any fights. This is my view. I respect the views of others but strongly disagree. I don't feel the need to protest - I just get on with my life. If all were gay and remained truly homosexual there would be no human race.

    Yeah, see that's what I don't understand either.


    Mr Abbott answered: "I probably feel a bit threatened, as so many people do. It's a fact of life.


    but how many is "so many"?
    It's a big assumption to state that so many people share his view and also feel threatened

    First up, I 100% support gay marriage. What I dont understand is that for Centrelink purposes, two ladies or men with children cliving together in a relationship are paid as if they are a couple instead of as single parents but this same relationship isnt allowed to be cemented in marriage.

    Yes I support it. If two consenting adults want to get married, it should not be a problem!

    I don't understand people that oppose same sex marriage. In reality, even if you are the biggest homophobe on the planet, 2 people you don't even know getting hitched will not impact on your own life at all!

    If s.ex is only for procreation, then why do straight people have s.ex outside of the purpose of having babies? Once they have finished having babies, should they never have s.ex again?

    And believe me, there doesn't have to be a male involved in my relationship for s.ex to be pleasurable ;-)
