rant alert .. lol
It honestly blows my mind that in 2012 people are still against same sex relationships ... I just dont understand why? If its CONSENSUAL .. and its making people happy .. what is so wrong with it?? its not hurting anyone else - they wouldn't be happy in a heterosexual relationship .. so why expect them to lie to a partner .. when you can be honest and happy with someone else??
I personally do not believe that its a choice to be gay - I have a long term friend (was the best man at our wedding) and I've had many a chats with him, and he has said that by the age of about 9 he just knew that he was different ..
why is this an issue??? .. it really is discrimination .. if someone was 'different' because they were a different race .. and we said no marriage - there would be outrage ... if someone was different because they had a disability .. and we said no marriage the media would be all over it .. but because someone is different because they love someone other than who they are "suppose to" - they cant get married and its all ok???
imo its discrimination to state that two independent adults can not get married .. and if it affected me personally I would be upset. If either of my boys are gay I hope it still not an issue when they are grown up ..
Yes I support it. Everyone should have the right.
Yes, I do support it
My DH does lots of "womens work" the only jobs thats exclusively mine, based on gender, is breastfeeding, since DH isnt lactating!
Two people who love each other and want to make a commitment to each other should be allowed to marry - what does it matter what genitals they have? Even if sexuality was 100% choice, why would this change anything? We're talking about 2 consenting adults! The biggest issue I have with marriage is that it can take as little as 31 days to get married! (By contrast it would usually take a minumum of 15 months to get divorced). 31 days!! Personally I'd like to see some changes to make it more difficult for anyone to get married (ie, make the process longer). I just don't get why some people are against it, it doesn't affect you, what's the issue? The couple would be living together anyway, they are just 'making it legal'.
How absolutely insulting to children of same sex parents (and single parents!) to be of the belief that children need a "mum" and a "dad".
