legalize or not?
Debate Round No. 2

Con

The government should not be able to recognize or "legalize" any type of marriage. A marriage should not be regulated by the government. Technically I am against gay marriage but the government legalizing it would mean that it is recognizing it. It is not the government's job to recognize any type of marriage. People shouldn't need the government's consent to get married.

Pro

Gay marriage legalization

Legalization means that government is getting its hands OFF of something. Legalization of gay marriage means no more regulating gay marriage, and being pro-gay marriage legalization does not imply that we are for the political process of deciding whether you get punished if you marry w. It's just a preference for the net positive of legalization in case it's illegal to begin with.

Gay marriage

Opposing gay marriage is in no way a good thing because the act is an association that regards you and your partner and isn't inherently offensive or aggressive. And since you don't know the reasons why someone would want to marry someone of the same gender, and can't judge unless you're in the subject's skin, your stance against gay marriage is irrational.

Defining marriage in terms of sex begs the question of how we define the sexes - how we define who is a "man" and who is a "woman."

Why does "normal" qualify as well brought up. I am raised in a Jewish household. Most of my friends are raised in Christian households. I am not raised normal. No studies support gay parents doing worse than straight parents, and they can have children. If their lesbian they can do invitrofertilization, and if their gay they can get a woman, scientifically impregnated to carry their baby.

ok, if we age going to talk about love, yes, of course love is more important than gender, but gay marriages can't born a baby and to them to adopt children must be prohibitat! because we need in normal and well- brought-up children

So, you are against gay marriage and are going to give valid, logical reasons to justify this belief that you hold?

Reasons for voting decision: Nice distinction by Corneliuss--"legalization" is not the government endorsing something, it is merely the government permitting something. As this was really the only point of contention (since you both agree that gay marriages are fine), I vote for Pro.
