Gay Marriage

Marriage between consenting adults was recently upheld in California by the state supreme court. Now California has a proposition on the ballot to change the state constitution to define marriage as between only one man and one woman. The main thrust of the TV ad arguments supporting the proposition is that without it, gay marriage will be taught in schools.

OH MY GAWD! The world will end!

Not just marriage, but the dreaded "gay marriage" will be taught. The argument is just bullshit. But you know what? I wish it was true. I think we would have a better society.


  1. Good post...

    We have always been "pro-gay" around here. (I don't know the correct PC term...)

    When Ryan and I got married.. we had 3 gay men in the wedding party, and 2 walked down the aisle together... AND we live in a conservative area of the midwest.. GOOD LORDY! You would have thought I committed a SIN! I actually had people ASK me WHY I had GAY men walk together?

    F@!% off was my general response. Did people forget that people are still just PEOPLE and I loved them no matter what their sexual orientation? I must be crazy to love people when *GASP* I know their sexual orientation!

    I've even educated my boys about it. At YOUNG ages. (Their close uncle is gay) And last family dinner, Zak told his cousins and I was shocked they didn't know.. they were older and there parents had failed to explain it to them... know what the cousins did? They MADE FUN of their uncles! I guess I'm naive to believe that parents educate their children about this topic. I wonder... if it was taught in schools... would that have happened?

    (Sorry so long... sore subject for me...) :-)

  2. Do they even teach straight marriage in school? Or sex ed in an educational, informative and open format? I am pro-informing so that our youth aren't misled and underinformed. Better to know than to not know!

  3. I've heard more than one person comment "Let gays marry. Then they can share the misery with the rest of us!" Makes me giggle!

    I'm with Sarah. What the hell school teaches anything about ANY kind of marriage? I'll never understand why people think it's their business to decide which people get to marry the person they love. Ridiculous! As I tell my babies at school, "Mind your own beeswax, people!"
