I Will Marry a Latte!!!....and Other Fun Stuff That Will Happen When Gay Marriage Is Legal...

Updated on August 2, 2018

I have literally sat and stared at this blank page for over 10 minutes unsure of what to write. The title was easy since the fight to prevent gay marriage is just so blatantly ridiculous, like the point in the title. Seriously?? One of the biggest arguments is gay marriage will lead to people marrying anything. Like it will open the floodgates of marital ridiculousness...Ummm, pretty sure Britney and Kim already did that? When did the government become the sounding board of who we as humans choose to marry? I chose to marry a guy...why? Because women are too whiny for me, oh and the sex would be awkward if I chose a woman. Truth be told, IF I chose to marry a woman, more power too me..who cares and why?

This whole argument is so annoying to me that I am honestly having a hard time writing this due to the fact that I don't even know where to start, so I will go with what I am comfortable doing....dun dun dun.....YUP, a list!!

1. It will ruin the sanctity of marriage.

Ok? Well, so does divorce, infidelity, abuse, pornography, money etc.....next? Look, if gay marriage ruins the sanctity of marriage then there should be a punishment for those things I listed, right? If the government is involved in the START of the marriage, they should be involved in the whole thing...right? Ooooohhhh wait that sounds ridiculous. Exactly.

2. God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve...

Hmmm, well if we ARE all children of God, he in turn also made Steve, and I like Steve...he is fun to shop with and does my hair. Also if we are throwing the bible into this, here is a list of things you may no longer eat. Actually it is much easier to give you the scriptures which will explain what you are allowed to eat. Here is a hint. You may no longer eat shellfish...sorry...

Leviticus 11:1-4, 11:9-10

Deuteronomy 14: 1-29

Genesis 9:3

Leviticus

Also read; Mark, Hebrews, Ephesians, screw it, just read the whole book. It will tell you the things you are allowed to eat...SO as my mother always said, 'Can't pick only one commandment to follow, it's all or none..'

3. Once we allow Gays to marry, then people will marry their dogs, cats, horses, cars, etc...really?

Did you even think about how stupid this was once it came out of your mouth or did it fly out so quickly due to the lack of teeth to stop it. Look, IF that is the truth? More power to you...weddings help our economy, SO put a dress on that El-camino and let's do this...btw? I am a DJ, and Yes, I have a TON of Hank Williams for you and your sister to dance to...

4. All gay couples are sexual deviants...WOW, this by far has to be the sickest, most ridiculous, offensive, pathetic and downright disgusting argument there is. I will not even grace this argument with a response, instead I will finish #4 with a *gag, choke, vomit, eye roll, and sigh*...but you know what? You gotta 'keep it freaky' in ANY relationship....if you want to dress up like a pirate? AAARRRRGGGHHH Matey!

5. They cannot be successful parents.

Oh they can't huh? Why is that? *waiting for logic*...Here is my thought on this. Nobody is a totally 'successful' parent. EVERYONE, regardless of sexual orientation, fails miserably as a parent in some ways. SO until you start giving people a psych/IQ test before they pro-create? Not a valid point. Also, IF we actually started testing before we could have kids? The human race would've died centuries ago. Nobody can argue with that.

I am so frustrated as a human that this is still an argument. I can't even imagine how we as a people will look back on this in another 50 years. If you recall it wasn't that long ago that these things were illegal and now we look back on them as ridiculous;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_suffrage

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_segregation

It is 2012 people, this is silly we are still fighting over the rights of others. It is not my business or the business of anyone else who we marry or fall in love with. Why do who we chose to share our love, bed, or lives with the concern of others? People don't refer to me as 'Gina, who sleeps with Kevin'...they refer to me as 'Gina, the wife, mother, friend, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, etc.' The argument is mute at this point. The fight is mute. The point is human. Human love, human relationships, human commitment.

Ignorance is not bliss, it is UN-education....

Kevin and I WILL educate our children that people are people and they ALL deserve love, respect, privacy and the chance to be happy....

      Bradley: Thank you so much for your comment. Unfortunately I 'feel' my point was missed while you read this...I am fully aware of the changes and/or scriptures you are referring to. I was raised Catholic and Mormon...(Ya, don't ask haha) and have read the Bible more then once...the point I was attempting to put across was the ridiculousness of people using their own interpretation of a scripture to 'put down' or 'judge' others. Like I said at the end of that point; 'SO as my mother always said, 'Can't pick only one commandment to follow, it's all or none..' I appreciate your points that you have posted and am grateful for your comment!!! Are you reading Luke from the King James? I love that whole chapter but have only read the King James version...I appreciate you putting the facts out there that we are all accountable for our OWN sins, not others. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

      Just wanted to make a quick comment. The Old Testament dietary restrictions are no longer in effect as Christ fulfilled the law (Romans 10:14; Galatians 3:24-26; Ephesians 2:15). Also, regardless of the specific sin the Bible is clear, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). We're all guilty (Genesis 8:21), and we're all held accountable before the Lord (Psalm 51:4). Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer (1 John 3:15), anyone who lusts is an adulterer (Matthew 5:28) and anyone who says they have no sin deceives themselves (1 John 1:8). The Lord says in Luke 5:32 "I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." I agree with your comment whole heartily, please read your Bible. Thanks Gina for you post!

      TT, you are not a new hubber...hence Tact gets the award and you don't. As for you kissing your horse before your future husband....hmmm...best I stay quiet.

      Tact, great hub! With TT and me in your corner you can do no wrong.

      Great hub, and all completely valid points! I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a real argument against gay marriage that doesn't include religion or idiocy. So far, I feel like it's never going to happen.

      This is the reason that I just can't stand most people, most government, or most government people.

      Voted up! A million times if I could!!

      HA!!! Any friend of Bills is truly a friend of mine!!!! It is just AWESOME that you pulled the Declaration of Independence out here, I typed that exact line more then 5 times, but felt it would welcome too many 'nay-sayers'...

      Would you look at this Billy, a girl fight, you caused!!! Hahaha!!! And truth be told, I would TOTALLY marry a latte, but then again, latte's don't mow the lawn...and Kevin TOTALLY does!!!

      Tact, this was great. If I could have married my horse instead of my husband, I would have. After work, I would drive over to see him at work (he was a horseback guide when I met him, later I let him borrow my horse to ride). I would go to my horse first and give him a hug and a kiss before the to-be hubby. :) Seriously, tho, I'm pretty sure there's something in the constitution about life, libery, and "the pursuit of happiness." SO, if marrying someone that shares my gender, wouldn't that make me persuing happiness and therefore approved by the government? :) Just throwing that out there. Loved the hub, voting it up and totally jealous that Bill likes you better than me...probably cuz I poked fun of him on my last. *evil giggle*

      Well, I've always referred to you as "Gina, who sleeps with Kevin" but I guess I could stop.

      My thinking has always been if someone is against same sex marriage then they shouldn't marry someone of the same sex. To me that is an easy solution.

      Hi Tactfully rude, I couldn't agree with you more despising the hypocrite comments.

      This is my take on it: a non-religious marriage is no more than a legal contract. If two people of the same sex that love each other want to define their relationship through a contract, it can be beneficial for both them and the society.
