Sister post: GOD IS FAKE!
I am 100% in favor of legalizing gay marriage and giving gays every single right a straight couple has. There is NO good reason gays shouldn’t be allowed to get married. Before you come at me with recycled reasons, lets go over them all to save me and you a lot of time:
1) Homosexuality is not natural: According to what international law? The bible? That’s not a law and that isn’t a valid document to base your life on. It is as valid and reliable as a manga.
2) Homosexuals can’t have children: Neither can Infertile men and women. Shall we prohibit them from getting married too? Marriage is about love, not having children. Besides, gays should be allowed to adopt kids.
3) The institution of marriage has traditionally been defined as between a man and a woman: Who gives a flying fuck about tradition? This is 2013, not the 1500s. Shit changes. Conservatives are too stupid and close minded to accept changes.
4) If we will allow gay marriage, whats to stop us from legalizing man and horse or child on adult marriages? : The difference between a gay marriage and an animal on human or child on adult marriage is CONSENT! Animals can’t consent. Children can’t consent. Adult men or women can. Conservatives love to use the Slippery Slope logic but it is a poor logic, at best.
5) Gay marriage is incompatible with my beliefs: Then don’t do it. Mind your own fucking business.
6) People should not be forced to waste their tax dollars on something they find wrong. : You mean like on wars? A lot of Americans are against wars and spending on defense. Shall we stop defense spending and war spending?
7) Children raised in gay homes will be molested: Yep, in the same way your straight dad or mom molested you. Here are the facts: Gays are not more likely to molest children. The American Psychological Association has made that very clear. Did you know white men are more likely to molest children than blacks? Shall we prohibit white men from getting married and having kids? It also seems religious people molest people a lot more than us Atheist. Shall we stop them from getting married? As I, and the experts, have said: Gays are not a hazard to children’s innocence.
Overall, it all comes down to this: IF YOU DON’T LIKE GAY MARRIAGE, DON’T DO IT! Don’t take part in it! But don’t you dare restrict the rights of an adult gay couple because you find their love to be icky and wrong. It is none of your fucking business to decide their rights. The government should either legalize gay marriage or throw out all laws on it and leave it up to the church, not the state, to marry them. Marriage shouldn’t be a state issue anyway, since we are citizens of the UNITED STATES, not of Texas or Virginia or whatever. Rights should not vary from state to state.
