How Your Same-Sex Marriage Affects Me
I've recently come to realize that same-sex-marriage affects me the same way teen pregnancy has affected me. You see, with teen pregnancy, a child is born (though, sadly, they're often murdered by their mothers) in a dysfunctional family dynamic, i.e., they often grow up with one parent missing in their lives, their fathers.
This significant disadvantage explains why so many grow up uneducated, destitute, and/or abused. These end up suffering, as well, from a whole host of mental disorders from Major Depression to Chronic Anxiety and everything else in between. Worst still, these are more likely to either be the victims or perpetrators of crime as contemporary studies and the dramatic jump in prison populations clearly show. It's no wonder, then, that our generation has witnessed higher rates of suicide, rape, murder, larceny, etc., etc., among young adults than in generations passed!
Sadly, we will now witness the rise of a new generation who will grow up without their fathers or mothers as more and more gay couples raise children. All of this will lead us to a world filled with more war, violence, abuse, strife, discord, animosity, hatred, bigotry, inequality, injustice, abject squalor, preventable disease and depravity than ever seen before.
