my first post is something from my own lj, tht i found on one of my friends' ljs. i do not claim it as my own work, but i found it an interesting piece and something worth discussing, as it is a problem in our society that has not yet gone.



10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage is "Wrong"



1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3)Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behaviour. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and
can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Brittany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans



there you go. read and tell me what you think. comments of the "gay people suck" nature will be ignored.

Marriage is an essential right of all people. The problem here is, as shown above, that people are inherently biased towards queers for ridiculous reasons. The other thing is, I think, that "marriage" implies sanction by a religion. If that religion does not support homosexual unions, which is fair enough, then it may be seen as an insult to those who have been "married" under that religion. Perhaps a better arrangement is a "civil union", with the same rights as marriage but not the relgious connotation.
