Speaking about it on other forums, though, some gay people still consider this discrimination. Not sure why, that wasn't my intention.

I don't see how there is discrimination in that, since it's all equal.
    Doesn't seem odd to me at all. While some folks may say they want an end to discrimination what they really want is public sanctioning and acceptance of themselves. Anything less than marriage will feel like rejection to those people.

Seems very closed minded in my opinion.

    Jaguar, she does have a point. You don't have balls at all. You never say what you mean. says something vague hoping the other would feel insulted, yet keeping your ass safe.

    Lolz... And please stop trolling other members.

    The thread was done days ago, but Curzon revived it to troll. Same thing he's done for years.

    ah... I can think of some really catty things that I could say to that, but I really don't have the patience to put up with any drama at the moment... especially with someone who's trolled me before

    I ain't baiting. I am saying. All you have to do is defend yourself by explaining yourself.

    The results show that the majority of people agree with this opinion. The ratio is almost 100 to 4. That explains a lot.

    Though I would love to point out how incorrect you are, I probably shouldn't, since it would add to a thread which is discussing a totally different subject and would ruin the mood of the thread.

    And besides the thread is over. Exhausted I mean.

    Or, as it is more popularly known, 25 to 1.
