    I think it's a basic human right to choose who you want to marry, whether same sex or not!! What I can't understand is why people are against it. Why should those people care whether or not same sex couples get married or not?? How does it affect their lives!! I really hope the politicians in our country come to their senses soon and give same sex couples the same rights as everyone else. I am personally heterosexual but have some friends living in same sex relationships and i personally don't see any difference. Sorry for the rant but something I feel very strongly about!!!

    My 4yr old already likes girls and knows because of people around him, girls with boys is the norm, that girls like boys and boys like girls. That's the way it is as that's what he sees. So we arent going to bring anything else into the equation unless he asks. We don't have any gay people where we live that I am aware off. If kids see boys with boys or girls with girls I believe they will think its the norm and be influenced. I don't believe it's in their genes or girls were born as girls, they end up with men then decided later, oh hang on I think I like girls. I just don't believe that!

    Well yes, indeed I do! Who is anybody to tell anybody else who they can and cant marry?

    Typical that the hate for same sex marriage stems from mans interpretation of god's law though hey? God loves everybody... except homo's, astrologists...etc

    I don't mind being called a bigot etc because I think it's a conscience choice. I didn't compare homosexuality to incest or to robbery...I was merely saying happiness and it feeling right doesn't make it natural. I think we are not born with preference I think life experience dictates these things. Should same sex couples be allowed to marry sure, have kids sure I have no problem with it. I have taught kids with gay parents who do an amazing job. My reason for thinking it should happen is not based on altruistic views but based on that it makes no difference to my life. These are still good people just because they choose a relationship with the same sex.

    I'd take a stab in the dark & say there ARE gay people where you live who are simply too ashamed, scared and feel unsupported in coming out because of people like you.

    And if your kid(s) did identify as gay, I think you could safely apply the same argument.

    So you believe that the only reason that you're sexually attracted to men is because you didn't grow up around gay people?

    Not the thread making me feel sick as for the most part, people are supportive. There are certainly viewpoints and opinions that are in the minority that are causing me to see red & are making my stomach turn.

    Take heart. A measly 10.8% are against gay marriage. Most of us have open hearts and open minds.

    I liked girls before I knew what sex was.
    I liked girls before I even knew that girls could be with girls and boys could be with boys.
    I was not influenced and grew up with homophobic parents.

    I have always wondered why people think someone else's relationship will affect them. My mum's parents grew up in a small country town, were involved in the community, my dad's parents also grew up in the same town but when people found out my mum's parents never married, a lot of people kept their distance. By that time my mum and her siblings had left home, my mum's sister had left town and my mum was married with a 2nd child on the way. My mum's mum had worked in the tuckshop 2 days a week, did reading every afternoon with different year levels, and volunteered at the community nursery which operated from 9 to 12 weekdays so mums could shop in peace. After 20 years of this type of volunteer work, people turned their back on them because they never got married. I am not from a particularly religious town, it was social standards that dictated people were to marry. I cannot work out why a piece of paper is so important that every heterosexual couple is meant to have it, yet same sex couples are denied that right.
