    Because by their very nature, a same sex couple cannot have children. Sure, they can adopt, but that's not exactly the same. There are also a number of variants in that segment of population, tiny though it is, that promote unhealthy lifestyle choices simply by their sexual ones.

    I've mentioned before the astronomically high suicide rate of transsexuals for example.
    It is EXACTLY the same from the perspective of assuming responsibilities which YOU brought to the conversation.

    Except the Left has figured that out and has done their best to eliminate marriage and family from society. There's the push for LGBT rights. The Feminist movement. Altering tax codes and social welfare to favor single parents (mostly women) over stable married families.
    The result is you get kids who are growing up and remaining children rather than becoming stable responsible adults.

      You understand that children are not a prerequisite of marriage? People who are infertile can marry, people who donít want kids can marry, LGBTQ couples can get a surrogate or adopt. So your argument is false. Whatís your next excuse to pursue bigotry?

        I was hearing a lecture from the LSE via podcast today about the Labour Party's drift from Social Democracy towards Socialism, how the Tories have failed to engage with the young in society, and I think that it's valid on this thread.

        The main point is, due to the after effects of the credit crunch, and the recession that followed it with the squeeze on income, you have a huge part of society that have no capital, for example they do not own their own home, or have savings or a pension etc.

        So the problem that our politicians have to face is, how can you sell capitalism to people with no capital.

            Hillary is a promoter, not the promoter. I know this point is subtle but you need to understand it.

              I should point out that the title of this thread isn't exactly accurate, because not all millennials think this way. First off, my wife is considered a millennial, and there is no way in hell that she'd want to live in any of those choices. But, she's smart and successful, unlike most other millennials.
              Millennial itself is a useless term, used by those who like easily constructed boxes into which they can classify people based on the most tenuous of links. I myself am considered a millennial despite being born during the Reagan administration, putting me in the same group as people who grew up in the post-9/11 world, or for whom smart phones and WiFi were taken for granted.

              One can use it only in the loosest sense, but it isn't something one can apply to the individual.

                And they are. Contracts like that do not occur in nature - they are created by Man.

                  Don't worry, soon we'll have someone trying to claim that animals display no homosexual behavior in nature either.

                    A question?

                    That is nothing but a mishmash of irrelevant appeals that amount to a logical fallacy. I could care less what the Cato Institute puts out as a mission statement. I clearly showed several examples directly from their report on how the results could easily be biased in a manner that gives wrong answers.
                    The US would rank much higher in many areas than it was given credit for because of the way the study was done. Cato isn't the first or last to bias such a study.



                    None of that exempts it from being part of China. Many countries have special economic or political zones within their borders to encourage trade.

                    Mexico has them too. So...?

                    Why the special treatment just for Hong Kong?



                    I think it demonstrates once again that the study has serious biases in it.
                    I'm not going to argue with you, I'm just going to point out that this index is dated 2016 or in political terms, Obama was still in office. That said, where would you put the US in 2017, and Trump in office?

                      That was the latest I could find on-line. Many of those special economic zones definitely still exist. The ones with Mexico certainly do. Trump may have railed against NAFTA, but it hasn't been rescinded.
