And when you have identical male twins and one is heterosexual and the other homosexual, I guess it suggests there factors other than genetics involved.
So the parents chose one of them to be gay, and raised the chosen one that way?

The belief that you can choose your sexuality is up there with the flat earth theory in terms of ignorance.

Clearly there are a number of factors involved in determination of sexual orientation. The example of identical male twins with differing orientations is proof that genetics may play a part but there are other factors involved. This LA Times article is interesting to read

Crazy and sickening. Would rather my tax dollars be put towards helping sick children in some way.

That guy Macklemore is singing, would not have a clue what about - his voice is not that hot anyway, very limited.

Apparently the no side wanted a song sung that represented their side of the argument as well. Are there any? And who sings them?

I don't know about no side songs but this would be hard to beat as one of the best love songs of all time in a traditional sense :D



A couple of comments on this song :D

Women shouldn't listen to this song without protection!

How many kids were made during this song only god knows


The hottest and most erotic song ever .

The Kinks' Lola straight down the middle - that would have had them confused!

I'm not much of a rap fan, but I didn't mind the Macklemore set. I hope to see Michael Morgan up on stage with him later.

Seeing that the hierarchy of the NRL have gotten on board for gay rights it is a wonder that the NO campaign are not pestering the NRL for gay and hippy footie teams to be allowed in on consistency grounds.

Can't stand Rap usually, but that was the best NRL show I've seen , other than Tina Turner or Jimmy Barnes, The crowd really got into itat the ground, and we were at a GF part , and not one person was negative about it. Every one of us is straight but we all enjoyed the full performance.

After watching Macklemore live I am shocked, no booing, no fighting, no rioting? What is this? Also, his gay propaganda did not turn me gay. Is this real life?

On a serious note, that was a top pregame show (and I am not even a Macklemore fan), the whole crowd got right into it. Hats off to him as well as the NRL for getting a top international act to perform.

Yes, but was that song written as a protest to SSM? And was Michael Bolton available?

Yeah, I didn't like the music, but from a spectacle POV, it was the best pre game entertainment they have produced in a long long time. Having people in front of the stage really makes it better amd makes it feel like a real concert. The only thing they are missing is a decent act. Hats off to the NRL for pulling their finger out and putting some effort into it.
