Just off the top of my head....

I think JiveTurkey's post of "My Two Dads" proves my point better than anything I could say...

Greg Evigan's hair! *shudder*

Yes because all of those hetero couples who are just saying "abstain" and are too scared to talk about sexual development with their children are doing a bang up job. I wonder if Palin did a better job than the two dads?

It also just occurred to me -- I'm also pretty sure men can't have babies.

It just occurred to you?

See? Those hetero couples aren't doing the best job at discussing sexual development.

Learn to throw a baseball from a heterosexual male or you'll end up throwing it like our president.

You could tell Obama was a basketball player with that toss. It was somewhere between a pitch and a jump shot.

I'm just not used to having to explain something as basic. But hey, Irvine asked...

Didn't ask for any examples of women who can't have babies. Give me five examples of men who can.

It would seem that gender essentialism is inherent to biology...

so we're boiling marriage down to who can shit out kids or not?

we could dance around all afternoon with notions of gender essentialism, but you're pretty much making gender contingent upon fertility, and i don't think that's something you want to do. unless it is.

and that all has nothing -- nothing -- to do with marriage equality, since fertility is certainly not required for marriage.

the fact of the matter is i have two very good married gay friends who are going to get pregnant using donor sperm and they are going to have a baby. how is this any different than any other non-traditional means of reproduction -- adoption, IVF, straights sometimes use sperm or egg donors -- and what does this have to do with their legal rights to marry each other?
