Well as INDY pointed out, if gay robots were allowed to marry all the straight robots would get divorced, it's simple math.

You should look into it, maybe you can deprogram one down to your intellect.

I think it's talking about humans marrying robots.

So, you guys think it ok for a human to marry a robot be it- a gay human, or a straight human?

The Devil's Advocate thread was closed for at lot less than this.

Some posters seem to get away with comments like the above more than others.

Just sayin'.

This is not a thread for discussing human-robot marriages, diamond.

i can't believe i'm feeding this discussion...

i don't understand the purpose of marrying a robot. obviously robots do not have rights. so one isn't looking to share property, accounts, last will and testament, child custody or anything.

i honestly don't understand how this is even relevant.


eta: oops, yolland beat me to it

But it's OK to equate homosexuals with robots?

Get over yourself...

It is a thread about redifining the meaning of the word marriage though, and that was my point.

And no one has ever suggested that we should be able to marry our computers or a toolbox, and that was her(and every other thinking person's) point.

It is a thread about whether or not gay people should have the legal right to get married. Period. That does not make it sarcastic open season on the marriageable availability to humans of chickens, cockroaches, cyborgs, blades of grass or what the hell else.

Drop it.

No it isn't. Marriage is still marriage.

Exactly. Thank you. It's a thing called consent, people, not that hard, really.

That said, I really don't give a flying pig's behind who or what you want to marry. As long as both parties are madly in love and fully consenting and all that good stuff, that's all that matters to me.

Meant to respond to this last night, too:

I can safely say I would. If I know a candidate is not only against gay marriage, but also wants to try and actively stop it from happening, they aren't getting any support from me. That was one reason (of many) why I could never put a vote down for Bush.

Right now, unfortunately, it seems to be the libertarian party only who's in favor of gay marriage. Which is great, don't get me wrong-I'd just love for once to see a Democrat (or a Republican, it certainly isn't implausible) come right out and say, "Yes, I support same-sex marriage and I will work to make sure that it is legal." (either that or say they support it and fail to understand why people's personal love lives should be anyone else's beeswax). And any candidate from any party that says that, they'll get my support.

Even if you disagree with every single one of their other stances?

I guess I'd just assume that someone who is pro-gay marriage would also likely be someone I'd agree with in quite a few other areas. But that is a good point and question. I'd say it'd depend on what the other issues are that they and I would disagree on. If they're pro gay-marriage but also, say, very pro-war, that would indeed make it tougher to throw my support at them, I won't lie.

Thank you for that link, unico . I've heard a bit about this guy in the past...looking at that link right now I think it's safe to say that, unless somebody else really winds up convincing me they should be the one I vote for, this is the guy who's gonna have my vote . I really like what I'm reading here.
