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