Because personally I don't like being told who I can or can't marry.
Also I believe in a women's right to choose.

But I think we(the dems as a whole) as more socially right than people think.

Just look at Tipper Gore's war on naughty music and Hillary Clinton's war on naughty video games.(personally I think there both insane on these issues)

Could you provide some examples?

I do see the point of the First Amendment arguments against censorship, or even against "community standards," but I have to tell you, Anym: as a dad, and as a public school teacher, I am absolutely sickened by what's being marketed to and targeted at kids. The newest demographic is 'tweens', i.e. 9-12 year olds. It's disgusting, it's immoral, and it's everywhere. If you don't think this media pollution is having an impact on kids' behavior, go and watch a middle school dance some Friday night. Kids are losing their childhood because someone can make money by sexualizing them, or by selling them graphic, gratuitous violence. Legal? Yes. Moral? Not at all...so I salute both Hillary and Tipper for having the balls (doh!) to take this subject on at all.
