Default How do supporters of so-called same-sex "marriage" believe this union can be consummated?

They don't think it matters.

But in fact, same sex couples are incapable of engaging in marital intercourse.

The liberal strategy is if reality doesn't agree with their agenda then redefine reality. They will probably try to redefine "marital intercourse" to fit with their agenda. It's like they think this world is just one big illusion or that they are dreaming all of this and can make it all up as they go. I think they have adopted the philosophy that rejects the concept that reality is something external to one's self.

This is a concept that very much invites, sustains and absolutely depends upon wishful thinking. Something will occur simply because it is desired to occur. In fact, it must occur, or something is truly wrong with those who think it. Reality is suppressed, as it is unpalatable.

Bishop Sheen gave a talk once in which he asked, "Where are your sox?" Western minds turn to reality and conclude that sox are in the dresser drawer. Leftist respond by saying, "Wherever the party says they are!"

Political correctness: the rejection of truth that conflicts with ideology. It requires that we pretend not to know things that we do.

They redefine what "sex" is to fit their vision of what they think it should be. Then again, they've been doing that since their Glorious Sexual Revolution. And we see how good that's been for us...

...[forty-three] years have passed since the infamous Stonewall riots of 1969 in New York, the Lexington and Concord of the gay liberation movement. During that time, homosexuals have carved out for themselves public spaces in every major American city, and many of the minor ones as well. They have had the chance to create whatever they wanted in those spaces, and what have they created? New spaces for locating sexual partners.

That's why we get statements like, "What's true for you is not necessarily true for me." AKA, relativism.

I am sure the google would turn up quite a few results if searched about how one would consummate a gay marriage. I wouldn't suggest doing the search though.
