I would like to start out by saying, I am unequivocally for the rights for gay marriage. One hundred percent. Why should straight people have to be the only ones to suffer? I mean, come on. The divorce rate for married couples is at around 50 percent. It’s pretty obvious the straight people can’t figure it out. What will it matter if the gay community gets involved with the fun? Heck, divorces might even become more festive.
Love is love, it is as simple as that. Biologically, it’s all the same neurons and chemicals burning, even if it’s not an anatomical certainty. Besides that, what another person does in their bedroom is no more my business then what they do in their bathroom. I really don’t want to know. OK, maybe in SOME cases I’d like to know and have pictures, but that is a whole other blog.
Then of course there is the religious debate. I will be honest, I don’t get that one. When I got married it had absolutely zero to do with any church. And from what I understand according to a lot, if not all, government offices, they tell us not to discriminate on the basis of color, sex, creed, etc., that maybe just maybe, they should heed their own advice. Let’s face a few facts here kiddies, the Bible tells us to do or not do a lot of things that don’t make a whole lot of sense nowadays. We seem to pick and choose, so why hang on so vehemently to this one? Personally, I would have rather held on to the one about not mixing fibers or some such thing. If we had, then we wouldn’t have those nasty memories from the 1970s leisure suits or the 1980s fitness outfits that still give me nightmares.
Heck, even the President of the United States came out and said he believed it was cool. Granted, he said it during an election year and AFTER North Carolina made it illegal, but hey… better late than never, right? I’ve seen the West Wing on TV. Pretty sure there was a guy around to tell him N.C. was doing it, and he didn’t just get it off CNN and went, “Hmm. Maybe I should say something about this gay marriage thing.” Would have been nice if he said a little earlier… you know, before they made in “unconstitutional”?
Come to think of it, I have no problem with homosexuals at all. My brother was a homosexual. Some of my friends are homosexual. If I am to be honest, two men “getting it on” is kind of gross to me. So is sushi, but I don’t see a reason to make it illegal. Plus, though I have absolutely no scientific data to confirm this, I believe about 75 percent of the men out there are all for gay marriage if it’s two hot females!
Of course there is the moronic argument of, “Well, if we do this, what will keep people from marrying plants, animals, or a lamp?” Really? Seriously? Oh I don’t know, how about some FRIGGIN’ common sense. Granted, I know it is seriously lacking in society today, but come on!
So, as my opinion has always been, your rights end where mine begin. If I want to have a relationship with another consenting male … BITE ME! It is absolutely none of your business. No more than it is my business what you had for dinner last night, or what you or your spouse did or didn’t do in your bedroom. If we continue down the path we may be heading, what’s next? Are we going to make sex between two adults “Unconstitutional” unless it is for procreation? God, I hope not! Why? Because of what I stated in the beginning. I have suffered enough.
