Gay marriage. Does it upset you? Are you a member of the “silent majority”? Are you concerned about the effect legalising gay marriage will have on the fabric of our society? If so, please fuck off and read a different blog.
It’s interesting that some 10, 20 years ago in western countries gay sex was legalised. And later people could spoof whomever they wanted to at the same age as all the heteros. And yet we are arguing now aboout allowing loving, committed gay couples to express that love and commitment in a legal sense by getting married. Is time going backwards? WTF?
Too many weddings are about dresses and frippery and less about love and commitment. But yet, so what? Let gay, straight, whatever people to marry, adopt, have surrogates. There will always be good and bad people, good and bad parents, good and bad couples as long as we tragic creatures walk the earth.
Most of us are beyond this kind of prescriptive bullshit. Marry, don’t marry, have sex, don’t have sex. Whatever. I’d love my dear friends to be able to get married in this and any other country if they wanted to – or not get married if that’s what they wanted (although who doesn’t love an excuse for a dear sweet new frock and possibly a hat if it’s posh).
I fail to see how two people who love each other and exchange vows has any impact at all on anyone else. Apart from themselves and their family and friends who are bloody well happy for them. Fewer than 15 per cent of us regularly attend a church at all, let alone one that says homosexual is all kinds of wrong. Something in the region of 70 per cent support gay marriage or simply don’t give a shit. It’s creepy that religious types are so obsessed with what other people do in their spare time/beds/lives. Perhaps you should spend more time being charitable and Jesus-like and shit.
Because the rest of us think you are stupid and I, for one, would like to double my chances of being a bridesmaid.
