About the same as farking straight marriage, but with a lot fewer pregnancies.

"If you use idempotency, it's a reaction in mathematics where A + A = A. Actually in abstract algebra, A + A =2A but we are less concerned with the numerical value two. We are more less concerned with the symbols A, you find out that A + A will give you A showing that the whole thing goes unchanged. It didn't change unlike commutativity A + B give B + A there is a change. A started the journey in commutativity and A + B gave us B + A and B started the journey after the equality sign."

Watch me blow this guy's silly little mind.

A = B

I guess the physics guy doesn't know his biology because men and women ARE THE SAME during the earliest stages of fetal development.  It's why men have nipples among all the other similarities.

And in his mathematical equations if A=penis and B=vagina then you need a C=anus D=mouth E=tits F=hands G=swords/scissors and H=any other body part that can produce friction

Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics to "prove gay marriage is wrong?"  Why not try BIOLOGY, big guy (you know, two males can't reproduce, two females can't reproduce)?  That would seem the obvious, and actually applicable, science to use.


Before I get jumped on by the Fark brigade:
1. My son is gay, I hope he finds the man of his dreams some day and lives somewhere where he can get married.
2. I'm talking higher-order animals, please don't bring up worms.

Marriage has nothing to do with reproduction, it's a Taxation/Estate/legal function.

Since we are using forces to explain human sexuality:

All matter has mass, and hence exerts a gravitational force. So everyone is attracted gravitationally to everyone else. Ergo everyone is a little bi. QED. End of discussion.

If I recall right, a few of them mentioned it off-handedly in a "Look at this adorable kid who got the right answer, but with wrong methodology," sort of way.

Not that this is an invitation to experiment, but I'm pretty sure there is nothing you could do with that implement that would get me pregnant. You could easily get my attention, but you couldn't get me pregnant.

I was more poking (pun intended) fun at the fact that gay can be the females too where marriage is concerned. I have yet to hear anyone coin the phrase 'lesbian marriage'.

Would argue that point with you, but are too busy farking each other's brains out.

Sure, two magnets with the same pole will naturally repel each other. But homosexuals have long figured out that all you have to do is flip one of them over and the attraction works out fine.
