A Contemporary Discussion
As discussed in Volokh, the idea of homosexual marriage may presuppose that same or opposite sex object choice is a difference without further psychological implication. However it may be that homosexual object choice is a degree of narcissistic object choice which conveys more ego risks than a heterosexual choice. For instance there nay be a greater risk of guilt projected on to the object which leads to instances such as that of the gay porn star cited in Drudge today*, someone who chopped up another man and mailed his body parts. Certainly, some people psychologically may not have a choice in object and may be quite stable but encouraging viewing the choices as immaterial may be unfortunate for others. There are assumptions you are making as lawyers which are reductionistic necessarily.
