Dan Savage Breaks Down the Irrational Arguments of Heterosexuals 

Live Savage, I can't understand why people are threatened by providing equality of other humans living in this country. Will hetrosexual couples refuse to marry and procreate if homosexuals can marry? Who could possibly say yes?

Same-Sex Marriage Wins by Losing - New York Times
When my widowed grandfather remarried in his 60’s, he wasn’t seeking to further the well-being of his children, who were grown and out of the house. He was seeking the security, companionship and legal rights that marriage provides. The survival of humankind was the furthest thing from his mind.

These defeats have demoralized supporters of gay marriage, but I see a silver lining. If heterosexual instability and the link between heterosexual sex and human reproduction are the best arguments opponents of same-sex marriage can muster, I can’t help but feel that our side must be winning. Insulting heterosexuals and discriminating against children with same-sex parents may score the other side a few runs, but these strategies won’t win the game.
