    So yesterday the United Kingdom House of Commons voted to pass a new bill giving gay couples the legal ability to marry instead of only having a 'civil partnership'!

    I was just wondering what the members of BHW think of this legalisation, and for those outside of the United Kingdom - is gay marriage legal in your state/country? Any gay BHW members planning on marrying or already in a civil partnership with a same sex partner? Any gay BHW members believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman (I've heard this claimed)?

    EDIT: Link to BBC News article, in case anyone missed the news last night.
    EDIT2: Link to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, in case anyone wants to read the legal specifications.

    I don't think you can discuss politics here. The thread will probably devolve into, "No! Being gay is wrong!" and "No! Being gay is okay!" and will go back and forth for hours until the Mighty Thor shows up and electrocutes everyone just for laughs and then abruptly flies away.

    Seems OK by the majority vote which is about right for these times...

    After all most things are acceptable in modern society...

    Although I'd usually agree with you, I'm really interested to see if BHW members can have a mature debate - if all hell breaks loose and the mods need descend then I'll just ask them to close this topic.

    Canada has some very encouraging equal rights laws, according to some quick research it was the first country outside Europe to legalise gay marriage!
    EDIT: Out of curiosity, are you married?

    I think it was stupid for it to be illegal in the first place. Other then that I also think it's stupid to be gay.

    Wow, hating lesbians and hating gays too. Are you feeling a little insecure about something?

    Isn't that pretty much like saying you 'think it's stupid to be black/white'?

    I thought everyone who lives in the United Kingdom was already gay, what does it matter?

    Kidding, of course. :eek:

    No sex = Human extinction.

    Too much sex = Overpopulation.

    So is having tattoos and anal sex. No one invokes the bible when discussing those things. They have no legitimate argument against homosexuality so they instinctively bring up the THY HOLY BOOK.

    Not even worth discussing. It's about time we started accepting people for who they are.

    But it's true, politics not allowed here.
