Will you accept same-sex marriage?

According the new reports,  
Gay men vow to appeal after judge tosses lawsuit, the first of its kind
Two gay men who lost a court case on Wednesday in which they had battled for the right to marry have vowed to carry on the fight.

It was the first case of its kind in China in which gay people had tested whether same-sex couples have the right to marry. While homosexuality is not illegal in China, same-sex marriage has not yet been explicitly legalized.

The lawsuit was brought by the couple, who were challenging the decision of a local civil affairs bureau that had denied them the right to marry. The case was dismissed after an open hearing that lasted three hours and was held before an audience of nearly 200 people, including many journalists. The case was heard at a court in Furong district, Changsha city, Hunan province.

I am doubting whether you wil support the couple if they are your families or your acquaintance? l

Traditional Chinese parents would normally find it very hard to accept gay children, and to accept gayness as a fact. However, gay people marrying other gay people is an excellent solution.

If a gay child grows up to appease their parents by marrying a heterosexual partner of the opposite sex, then the marriage will almost certainly fail, and everybody end up worse off.

If a gay child grows up to marry a gay partner of their choice, everyone can have a fair chance of happiness provided that the parents can think of their own happiness in terms of happy relationships rather than 'normal' relationships. Society's attitude needs to shift and it will take time to do so.

In the US we don't have that choice anymore. It's been decided for us.
I don't personally have a problem with it. But I don't like seeing it flaunted in public.

That only shows what a sad individual you are. How is other people's happiness away from you?
