The Gay Marriage issue has hotted up in The US, the case has reached The Supreme Court for hearing and is being hotly debated.
What has hitherto an aberration in Behavior, has been taken as sanctioned socially.
They may not agree that it has never been an aberration.
The whole issue snowballed into a Legal and Constitutional Controversy because California vetoed Gay Marriage and a Couple (Gay) have approached the Court for marriage.
Gay Marriage has now become an issue of Constitutional importance involving the the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 is unconstitutional.
What beats me is the argument that the Homosexuals couples want to be treated on par with hetero sexual couples!
The very terms used to denote these groups distinctly is, because of their difference, behaviour.
It is like making a Circle equal to a Square!
What exactly are these people demanding now?
To be treated on par with hetero sexual Family and the benefits?
You want the approval of the Society?
You did not listen to the objection of the majority, normal one at that,of going Homosexual, citing all and sundry arguments to justify not-normal behaviour!
You went ahead.
Why do you seek approval from the Society , only to claim the benefits from the Society?
Or respect and regards from the people?
This is obtained by vilification or arguments but by adhering to Social Norms.
Since you chose a different path, have a set of rules and benefits among yourselves for yourselves.
Well. you can not eat the cake and have it too.
