Day 18 – Your views on gay marriage.
WARNING: post contains gratuitous yelly CAPS LOCK written in a less than profound manner.
This is going to sound exactly the opposite of how I mean it, but gah. I am so SICK of the controversy surrounding gay marriage. Why do people feel they have the right to tell ANYONE who they can or can’t love and legally bind themselves to? Between two consenting adults, I mean.
Honestly, I couldn’t give a rat’s patoot who gets married. Gay, straight, whatever. WHO CARES? WHY DO PEOPLE CARE? They think allowing gay marriage will, what? Ruin the sanctity? I don’t even get it. Get over yourself.
I live in a place where people of all orientations can be bound in holy matrimony. We embrace all combinations of love (again, consenting adults, of course). DOING IT RIGHT, FOLKS. LEARN FROM IT.
Is the problem that people don’t like thinking about two guys having sex? Well, I hate to break it to them, but you don’t need marriage for that to happen. And besides, why would they think about that? I know I don’t think of other married couples having sex and I certainly hope no one thinks of me. Just keep your dirty minds out of the gutter, you narrow minded busy bodies, and mind your business.
I was fortunate enough to confidently marry the man I love without having to worry about people thinking we were freaks of nature or that we shouldn’t have the right of matrimony or worrying about our legal rights as a couple. How is it fair that I got that privilege and so many others don’t? The negative views toward gay marriage is what perverts the sanctity of marriage, not the people who want to marry. Love is love, people. My rights are not more important or valid than anyone else’s. We all pay the same taxes and breathe the same air and occupy the same space. Why are we treated so differently?
I don’t care who straight people marry. I don’t care IF they marry. I don’t care if gay or lesbian couples get married. I JUST DON’T CARE. And I can’t, for the life of me, see why anyone else does.
