During the debate, which was held at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C., things got heated when the subject turned to legalizing drugs. "Libertarians and pot," Coulter said dismissively — in front of more than 1,000 libertarian students. "This is why people think libertarians are p---ies." Coulter's reasoning was that libertarians should be asking questions about more important topics.
But when the subject of gay marriage came up, that's when the students actually booed her. After Stossel asked, "Why can't gays get married?" Coulter replied, "Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex... Marriage is the most important institution to civilize young people. I'd make divorce a lot more difficult. Liberals want to destroy the family."
