Re: Weapon (so to speak) of choice
I don't know, I've never asked, but then none of the gay people I know, that I know are gay at least, want to be straight either.

Re: off topic but ...
I'm all for equal rights. You are being silly here, of course, because gays have every right I have to get married heterosexually.

If you are for equal rights, then gays should be able to marry homosexually. You are forcing them to go against their own sexual orientation, and that is not equality.

But, bluescat, from my perspective "homosexual marriage" is an oxymoron, like a three-sided rectangle. I'm for legalizing gay "domestic partnerships"—give them all the benefits of a heterosexual marriage, which is NOT an oxymoron.

But when gays insist on being legally "married," I have to ask why. They want to make THAT an issue instead of coming up with their own term for gay domestic partnerships. What about "GDPs"?

Hypothetically from in the SF Chronicle:

In Sausalito yesterday, Chuck and Larry were joined together homosexually in a legailized GDP. And, in San Jose yesterday, John and Sarah were married heterosexually. Both civil unions were equally joyous. The grooms were handsome and the brides were beautiful, depending of course on your particular sexual orientation. Everyone was happy, except for a few bigots who demanded that gays should be allowed to get "married" too. But there's always a few oxymorons around to make fools out of themselves.

Probably best to take this over to the On the Threshold of Bigotry.
