Gay Marriage

As hard as it might seem to believe, I have absolutely no opinion on gay marriage.
Maybe it's because I'm not gay and I can't relate to the gay lifestyle. I can't understand what it's like to be gay etc etc etc.
In fact I'm neither for or against gay marriage. I have no opinion at all. It leaves me cold.
I'd probably have a strong opinion for example if cats married dogs but that's not the issue here.
So, I'll open the floodgate here and ask, somebody... anybody please tell me why I should care and have an opinion on this.

Science confirms that most homosexuals become gay in the womb.
To deny someone born that way the same rights as every other human is just wrong.
And I strongly believe that homosexuals have every right to be just as miserable as married heterosexuals like myself.

Baconeater, I never imagined that somebody would choose to be homosexual any more than I have any choice in being attracted to females.

I don't understand what the big deal is. I would think that allowing them the sanctity of marriage to have their jollies like heterosexuals do would be fair. It's like saying condoms are wrong so it's better not to use them when having illicit sex. Wha????? I'm not even sure I think legal marriage is all that it's cracked up to be. It's nice to have the promise for sure but it also takes a lot of expense and a couple lawyers to end it if it just doesn't work. I think people should have contracts made up to live together as a family for a period of time to share benefits (because this is the real issue). Sex should have no part. So a couple students could agree to live together for 6 months legally. Two sisters or brothers could share living expenses and childcare and benefits for a year at a time. Renewable, of course. Pay a nominal fee and you have legal benefits for that period of time.

Jeannie, good points you raise. However, in Australia we've progressed to issues concerning gay parenthood, gay in-vitro fertilization, and gay entitlements to deceased estates of partners. A real can of worms.

Baconeater, you are full of it. Science confirms no such thing. Think about how ridiculous that claim is. How the can you determine sexuality in the womb?
