Gay rights should be allowed. In my opinion it's not something that the government should decide.

I accept this debate.

Let me just start off by saying you have it backwards. "Legalizing" gay marriage WOULD BE the governments decision. Technically, gay marriage is legal everywhere in the US. The only thing is, is that the government doesn't recognize it as a legitimate marriage. So if 2 guys want to get married, they can. It just won't be recognized as a marriage, because as any good definition will tell you, marriage is between a man and a woman. Of course, people have changed the definition in the past couple years in some places, but that doesn't mean the word actually changes.

And please also specify what you mean by gay rights being allowed next round as well. Gay rights aren't "illegall".

Anyway, continue with your argument.

This is a very vague debate. Other than the right to legitimate marriage, what other gay rights are being oppressed by the government?
