No, Bulgar. I am a gay man and I oppose any legal recognition of polygamy (although polyamory isn't illegal). I suggest that you read the Bountiful case findings from British Columbia in Canada. Polygamists have far too great a tolerance for spousal violence and child sexual abuse for it to ever be decriminalised in New Zealand.

I'm not sure where this guy gets his facts from but Junopee's point is absolutely valid - permit same sex marriage and you must also allow polygamy. I have no strong opinions so long as they stay out of your face and personally I dont need to take part in a street parade to affirm that I'm straight or mainstream.

We are in the 21st Century people, the etymology of the word marriage may very well have meant between man and woman, but this clearly needs to change with the times.
As a heterosexual male, I support Gay marriage and its about time that this was tabled.
