Let's suppose that you and those like you have the fullest possible enjoyment of rights before the law consistent with others like them. Let's further suppose that another group of people, unlike you in some way, who does not enjoy the same extent of rights under the law is given rights commensurate to yours. To be clear: your status before the law has not changed, and will not in any way change.

How do you feel about that?
Do you feel that this effects you? If so, why?
Do you feel that this does not effect you? why?

Ok... since no one has responded... let's make it more concrete.

Let's suppose that you and those like you (heterosexuals) have the fullest possible enjoyment of rights before the law consistent with others like them. Let's further suppose that another group of people (homosexuals), unlike you in some way, who does not enjoy the same extent of rights under the law is given rights commensurate to yours (the right to marry who they love and be recognized accordingly under the law). To be clear: your status before the law has not changed, and will not in any way change.

If you're arguing specifically that gays should be allowed adopt children because straight people are then you're mad. You're treating kids as objects, but they're not. Trying to get around the sensitivity of the issue like this isn't very commendable

As regards pretty much absolutely everything else, it's your life.

Yeah me too. Your cross dressing thread seemed a bit of an offshoot of that joke though so I was wondering >:D

Oh, I'm sure you are...

I'm still on the fence, though, about whether you're a serial killer or not.

Well... I'm thinking you're either a serial killer of a giant penguin. Given that you're typing, I'm pretty damn sure you're not a giant penguin. lol

The fact that you're able to empathize with a dude named Hannibal resolves any doubt... you're surely a serial killer. Just don't cut people's heads open, and saut" their brains while they're still alive. That would be just too much.

I like it in lattes... but not by itself. I usually have a bagel for breakfast though, with coffee.
