I see no reason why gay marriage shouldn't be legal EVERYWHERE. I mean seriously it isn't hurting anyone.

There are a few reasons with varying legitimacy, and I'm going to assume you mean in the USA, and not literally everywhere.
1. The reason that it hurts no one is not a reason why legal protections should be offered, and let's be clear, that is exactly what this is at this point. It is not illegal to live with, have sex, or even be married as a gay man - the issue is if it should be legally recognized, which is a VERY different issue than, say, Russia or the Middle East, where you may be jailed or killed just for stating you are gay. (legal)
2. It further legitimizes the legal notion of marriage, which is unnecessary from a legal standpoint. (libertarian)
3. It aids in moral decay. (religious)
4. It creates a slippery slope into incestuous relationships. Do you believe that two male cousins should be allowed to be married? If so, what about male and female cousins? (legal)
5. Gays are just bad people (personal vendettas).
6. Some sort of economic impact (economical).

These are pretty much the arguments against it, and as you can see, most are pretty bad. However, what are the reasons for gay marriage? You'll see they are generally equally as bad.
To me, the issue basically boils down to: "feel-good" policy and false views of equality vs. fear/hate and tradition.
Not much to get excited about if you don't have a dog in the race.
My work here is, finally, done.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.
