"I don't feel threatened by two people of the same sex who love each other and want to get married. This is a standard response of progressively minded individuals who do not want to appear intolerant towards homosexual marriage. It is also a response designed to end the conversation on the subject.
If one person doesn’t feel personally threatened by the prospect of two individuals of the same sex tying the knot, then there isn’t much else to talk about, is there? Unless someone else feels threatened by it, in which case it is their problem, and not the other person’s, who is indifferent about the whole matter because it doesn’t really affect him or her anyway.
But there is more than meets the eye to this seemingly innocuous and preemptively defensive response to what is after all a very controversial subject."- Miguel Guanipa, The American Daily, Mar1, 2006
