I have two things: a solution to the gay marriage dilemma, and a statistical bit of evidence on homosexuality.

Legally, the government cannot keep you from signing contracts that entitle you to all the headaches and privileges that het marriages get. So marry each other in a ceremony that has meaning to you, hire a lawyer to draw up and sign contracts for the other stuff, and ignore everybody else. In a capitalist society, contract law is sacred, and usually upheld over civil laws and social conventions. The Christian Sideways can say you still aren't legally married, but they won't be able to prove it in any meaningful way.

*sing-songs* Na na Na na NA Nah!

Second- take all the gay people you know and sort them into two types: normal/lazy and overacheiving/contrary. Then do the same thing for all the straight people you know. Leave out the bisexuals. If people have a choice between being straight (which has it's perils but is still 100 times safer socially and emotionally) and being gay (which will get you good sex but also family trouble and worries about legal standing, discrimination, closeting, and personal safety) then lazy people are going to choose to be straight and only people who have to do everything the difficult way will choose to be gay. I see no such statistical incidence anywhere.

Woah. Long sentence there, wasn't it? *is dizzy, from the deep*
In further news, I still can't pin down the ideas on how to turn down offers.
