I would say this to the "you are a hypocrite" argument; I couldn't care less one way or the other if gays want some sort of marriage equivalent union, personally I think calling it marriage is a deliberate provocation to the uber right though. Furthermore, I would go as far as to say if you are willing to live with the words 'gay' and 'straight' yet object to calling a same sex union something besides marriage, you are a hypocrite. Why is one kind of distinction between the two groups fine and another similar distinction wrong? I also hate the divorce rate counterargument that gay rights activists give. It is both presumptuous and arrogant, because they are basically saying if gays got married they would never get divorced, which is straight up bullshit. Gays are human beings and would divorce just as much as straight people.
Well, here's the typical counter-argument from both sides of the argument:
WELL WHY CANT BLACKS JUST HAVE THEIR OWN SCHOOLS
pretty much both sides are big bitches
I also hate the divorce rate counterargument that gay rights activists give.
not sure what argument you're referring to but usually when people say this they are responding to people who use arguments like, "THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE" (MY FAVORITE MEANINGLESS TERM) or saying that gays would undermine the instutition of marriage, when it clearly already has been... not that they would divorce any more or less.
although a lot of people make the argument that gay people would divorce too much cause all of them are all promiscuous and can't go five minutes without getting gang banged or something.
