I also think that anyone who supports traditional marriage should support traditional male and females roles. I mean if you want to get down to traditional marriage you need to look at what it was. We as a country in whole in no way hold up traditional marriage or shouldn't.
Actually I am someone who supports traditional marriage but is opposed to males and females following traditional gender roles. Gender roles should be thrown out the door. Gender roles and marriage have nothing to do with each other as far as I am concerned. I know many, myself included that have crossed over and done things typically reserved for the other gender before. I have no problem with that. In our society today you are not going to find many males and females that stick to their defined roles.
Traditional marrage as the united states knows it also tries to stop a person who is born both sexes from marrying. Do you support that?
Well if you are referring to those individuals who are physically/biologically born with the hormones and reproductive organs of both sexes then it would depend on the sex that individual chooses. I know most have surgeries to go with the sex they feel most comfortable as. In the end they would have to choose some sex to put down on the marriage license, and it could be the one listed on their birth certificate if they never go and change their anatomy around. I doubt even in the few states that have gay marriage that you can get away with not putting any sex at all even given that situation.
What if they don't want to choose a sex? Who says that they should have to? Why should they have to? They aren't one sex. And they may not have a "comfortable" sex. They could be gender fluid and therefore would want to stay both sexes or feel that they are both sexes gender wise. Why do you get to say that they should choose? Who are you to say that they should choose? They are born both sexes and they should be able to to stay that way if they want to. People that have tried to install laws like that have tried deciding for the people by thier chromosomes. Others have tried to do it based on thier hormones. Nothing works because it's up to them to decide thier gender and they may fell like both genders. They shouldn't have to choose for your benifit of wanting a "traditional" marrage.
People should start reconizing that there is more than one sex and that the body's gender doesn't always match up with the sex.
In fact laws like that allow parents to mutilate the genitals of their baby. Do you support parents being able to choose the gender?
What if they are intersexed and the parents do choose the gender. They choose girl because that is the easiest to make them into, but they aren't a girl. They knew that they were a man even if they didn't find this fact out. Although laws like the traditional marrage laws would prevent them from marrying another female because they were made into a female at birth? Do you support that?
I guess it would depend on the circumstances, but if the parents do not feel comfortable making that decision then wait until the child is older and make the decision before puberty sets in and some of the physical changes are irreversible. But I could see the parents choosing to avoid a lot of conflict in the child's life if that the child may find that decision far too difficult to make for themselves. I would probably recommend go with the gender that is most dominate in accordance with the physical anatomy of the child, as that would mean less surgery to correct the problem. That is if the parents choose at birth, instead of waiting till the child is older and can decide for themselves which to be. But I do believe at some point the child has to decide if I am one gender or the other, because you cannot be genderless for life. I would personally prefer if the child made that decision, since there is always a chance of error in the parents choosing. As to what I do not support, I do not support two individuals of the same sex marrying, regardless of circumstances. Adjusting the laws to accommodate these individuals would be far too difficult in my opinion, because if you did not make them choose a gender then that could possibly lead the way for homosexual marriage as far as the marriage issue is concerned, and I do not agree with that one bit. Gays and lesbians would be in an outrage if you allowed those intersexed individuals an exception and not them, and while intersex may be an actual condition that is out of that individuals control, I do not believe homosexuality is natural, something you are born as, and do not deserve the marriage rights that heterosexual couples have. But as far as I am aware the instances of intersex children being born is a rather low rate. And I mean fully intersexed. If proof could be given to determine genetically that this person was born XY yet has the appearance of XX then I would consider an exception, but only if gays and lesbians were still restricted, since I consider their lifestyles a choice, whereas intersexed individuals have an actual genetic condition. But marriage between XX and XX and XY and XY to me is not natural in any way.
