Yes, because we are all human beings just being differentiated by our genders. What matters is from the inside, not the outside. I'm very confident to say that homosexuality is a thing that should be accepted because what we people choose makes us happy. Although I do not know how homosexual people think, i could say that we are not different from them. We should accept them and treat them like how we treat other males and females.

In order for such an argument to be made, the burden of proof must be sated. The instigator has NOT given any evidence, nor do I see any, that gender confused citizens of America are being mistreated. I also would state that the concept of gender confusion is even a matter that 'rights' as defined by the constitution must address.

I would appreciate it if the instigator were to give any actual instances of the 'gender confused' having their rights taken or abused. Marriage isn't exactly a 'right' defined by the Constitution, nor is it necessary for the document to address it at all, marriage as we know it has only been around for a few centuries, therefor their's no necessity for the government to recognise WHO you're married to at all. The largest argument I've heard besides 'they're being wronged' is the statement that certain insurance companies don't give marital benefits to homosexual couples, and sure that should be changed, but no one discriminates against the 'gender confused' in a legal sense.

This is just the opening round. He can't give you the burden of proof in his introduction.

"Equal rights." Just robotic libtard rhetoric... And they never say what those "rights" are.

This is a silly resolution. I'm against gay marriage, but I don't think gays should be given unequal rights. lol.

And kbub is right, it is considered an offensive term in many communities, because it's often completely lacking in confusion. A person not identifying with their sex or gender roles is often very certain. Why should we look to define it as confusion? Why is a certain gender role "appropriate" while others aren't? And why is selecting that appropriate gender role somehow not acting confused, while selecting an alternative shocases confusion?

You realize that most homosexuals aren't "gender confused," right? Neither are most heterosexuals. Gender confusion normally takes the form of gender identity disorder, where someone experiences discontent with the sex they were assigned at birth or the gender roles associated with that sex. You could look at it as someone who remains uncertain about their sexuality, but you run into trouble here, since there are people out there who are sexually attracted to both sexes and a wide variety of genders. How do you determine if this is the case or if someone is confused? You should just make sure you keep these in mind, since you seem to be defending homosexuality rather than gender confusion.

Also, sexual orientation does NOT imply gender. A gay male is as much a male as a straight male. A lesbian female is as much a female as a straight female.

"Gender confused" is an offensive term.
