Burchey,

I know a great number of people who feel romantic love for people of the same sex. It makes me smile to see them gazing lovingly at each other.

Love is love, it transcends gender.

Love only means procreation if you're religious. If you're a kind human who respects people, love can be between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.

As I've said before, I am attracted to women, but I acknowledge and respect the love that same sex couples share. It's natural for people to find love with others of the same sex. It has been happening for millennia, marginalizing or criminalizing it is wrong. Period.

My lady and I have an open relationship. She's 100% lesbo. And a gold star. We love each other.

Ok Burchey, I think I get your point, but discounting romance is super cynical.

Haven't you ever fallen in love with someone?

Brandon-, wonder why Cmac keeps closeting my gay wedding TR to the trip report section only, erasing it from the forum twice. Another poster (friend) alerted me to this.

sully that suck's! Cmac has his favorito's...

We'll let who can piss the farthest remain contentious.

In the meantime a true civil rights issue involves Vodka. It seems Russia cares about what people chew on concerning each other. No one else cares but they do.

So, if you are gay and if you are straight, stop consuming Russian vodka in protest of their nation state's clampdown on private behavior, expressed in public.

The Russians won WWII for every one while we weren't looking. Now in freedom from Communism, they seem to think they can stamp out nascent behavior by writing stuff on paper and making the cops oblige.

BOYCOTT RUSSIAN VODKA AS A PROTEST IN FAVOUR OF HUMAN RIGHTS !

Your girlfriend will, or should consider it a sexy gesture...

Jim,
I just heard about that yesterday from a friend who is a bartender in Brooklyn.

She told me that over 200 NYC bars are boycotting Russian vodka.

I know, 200 bars in NYC isn't many, but maybe it will send a message.

Meanwhile, in Uganda...

“Foes of allowing same-sex marriage might note that there’s been no noticeable breakdown in the fabric of society that can be attributed to extending the right to marry to people who share the same gender.”

thats sort of like the pot smoking study that came out in the 70s. No noticeable difference in someone who smokes pot for 10, 20,30 years. whatever the number was. The problem was their test subjects had been smoking pot for their entire lives and pot had been smoked copiously on that island for generations. So whatever difference might have been noticed had already occurred. If I am 40 years old and have been smoking pot since before I was born, and you test me for 10 years, you likely won't see much of a difference.

Somewhat similar situation here. These people have been living together and having sex and doing all the relationship intimacies, so the piece of paper isn't all that big of a difference if you are trying to understand the effect. The effect is a cumulative thing and has to be studied over large numbers of generations to be understood.

The similarity in climbing are the small mistakes that singly don't lead to catastrophe, but together can.

And Please, you don't need to flame me. I'm just explaining a viewpoint. It doesn't mean that I agree with it. If you want to change something, you generally need to understand it.

The viewpoint of some spiritualist would be over millions of years. 10 years would be next to nothing in that time frame.

The piece of paper IS a big deal to those denied one. Everything from child custody, hospital visitation rights, taxes, social security, wills, and on and on depend on that "piece of paper".

I fully understand that Timid, and I agree. I was speaking in very long term social impacts. I'm sorry if I did not convey that.
