Like I already said, my concern is socialization and perpetuation of norms and learned behaviors which underpin modern liberal society, not biological perpetuation (outside of Europe and Eastern Asia, but that's another issue which likewise has nothing to do with the legality or illegality of gay marriage). And my argument is not against gay marriage, but rather against a superfluous justification of gay marriage which ideologically devalues the importance of (broadly defined) fatherhood and motherhood roles.
