    If the majority of Australians support marriage equality, and there have been many polls that indicate that this is the case, then what does that make those who are against it?

    Sorry Dave and pals...you're just not normal and possibly vicious beasts!

    I find it interesting that homosexuals have been called unnatural, not normal, and have been compared to violent acts and yet it's considered by some that those 'opinions' being 'crucified'? I'd imagine if someone said hurtful things like that about their marriage they'd feel like crucifying it, too!

    The more I think about it, the more against homophobic marriage I am. If people are so frightened that their husband or wife will leave them for a man/woman because they are finally allowed to marry someone of the same sex, perhaps their marriage just isn't that strong and they shouldn't be married in the first place.

    Omg - Being gay did not just get compared to vicious animals & violent offenders did it?

    Must be a pretty lame reason then, if it can't stand up to criticism?

Please, please think more about this. Your discomfort is not more important than someone else's human rights.
    Totally agree. If someone was to say that interracial relationships were unnatural, not normal, not to be accepted, promoted or encouraged, compared it to an inclination towards violence, made illogical comments about procreation within an interracial marriage and speculated if all people were to remain in interracial relationships that it would harm the human race and it's not normal just because some dogs are vicious.

    I would lose my **** and be absolutely justified. Even if I would probably earn myself an infraction.

    But it's okay to say all that if it's about same sex marriage? Your opinions shouldn't hurt anyone and be respected? Righteo.

    What if marriage equality also applies to heterosexual couples who don't have sex the right way? Like.. I enjoy some not very vanilla things on occasion, but what if you HAVE to have sex in missionary with the lights out every Tuesday and can never do anything other than that or it's not natural and so you cant marry the person?

    What if suddenly people decided to widen the gene pool, so people with brown hair and brown eyes can't marry people with brown hair and brown eyes because itll reduce the chances of a blonde haired blue eyed baby.

    What if people who are lactose intollerant suddenly can't marry in case there's MORE lactose intollerant people!? (And considering all humans are actually designed to be lactose intollerant, this is the closest one I can come up with at present in comparison to Daves.)

    And who gives a rats if homosexuality is a choice? What harm does that choice do anyone? It's just not logical to take such an interest in someone elses s3x life.

    And btw Dave, theoretically men have more of a problem with gay men than they do women because suddenly they're faced with someone who can actually overpower them and force themselves on them. It's kind of like being a woman in that respect. Constantly fearing the man you see late at night might not actually be as nice as you would hope. The only way people can save "losing face" due to their fears of being overpowered by a "poof"(and I shuddered just typing that and feel I should scrub my phone and hands clean) is to decide they aren't natural and so are beneath them. It gives men a sense of superiority and it helps banish their fears.

    Homosexuality is found in 100's and 100's of animal species and humans are the abnormal ones? Okay, I can see the logic in that reasoning. We just aren't as civilized and loving as those vicious beasts!!

    I think that's the problem with humans believing that technology and a large brain capacity makes them superior to any other creature in the world. They forget at the very heart of it, we are animals just like everything else.
