Should Gay Couples be Able to Marry?
That’s a stupid question. Why are men and women able to marry? This institution of marriage was developed by a society that would be considered openly racist, sexist bigots by today’s standards. The fact that we have to even debate this question shows a definite disconnect between today’s society at large and the other end of the brain stem.
When you create an officially sanctioned institution such as marriage and not just control the rules of it but have the rules permanently restrict people from ever qualifying for it based on sexual orientation, then you are discriminating. Sorry, some people won’t do what you tell them no matter how loud you bark, but then again why should they, who are you (society)? Why do you think you have the right to impose your will upon them?
I understand if homophobic, heterosexuals are so insecure about their ‘marriage’ status that they feel it automatically renders them ‘not gay’ and that we have a definition of ‘marriage’ that requires a consenting female and male couple. I am OK with this. Let’s call it something else that means ‘marriage’ but it’s not called marriage like ‘partnership’ or whatever, whatever can be agreed upon and put forth as a title.
I am sure we could even still get away with a name that is not even politically correct, one that screams ‘I am gay’, you know, I meet you and I say “hey Jim!, long time no see, Jim meet Tom, Tom meet Jim, Jim and I are partners.” This way the aforementioned people can still live in their “I am automatically not gay dimension” and everyone is happy.
So why bother at all? Why we have to ‘bother’ about this is because all you stupid legislators have gone and attached benefits, tax credits and incentives to the ‘marriage’ status with public funds thus making it of public concern which actually includes all the public not just the ‘marriage status’ folks.
Saying gays can’t ‘partner’ is like saying in a job advert “black people don’t even apply for this high paying job because you are black!” Now, some of you know that even though it’s not said (it’s not cool to say that), it’s what happens (real word dimension) but for some difficult-to-understand, brain-stem disconnect logic we can say that out loud in regard to gays and marriage.
