"The impacts of same-sex marriage include the 'domino effect' that it may bring upon the marriage system. Once same-sex marriage is legalized, it may lead to the debates on legalizing 'multi-partner marriage' and 'human-animal marriage.'

If the law recognizes same-sex marriage, what about the 'rights' to adultery, incest or pedophilia? Does this bring a challenge to the bottom line of civilization?"

--Li Tie, in an argument on same-sex marriage in China on the big Chinese blog NetEase

Considering the ratio of men to women, same-sex marriage and multi-partner marriages may actually benefit China. In future China it might be chic for two straight men to get married and raise a child if they can't find a wife. :)

In adultery, incest and pedophilia, others are hurt, sometimes irreparably. Who is hurt by the marriage of a same-sex couple?
