marriage is between a man and a woman

but beyond that, no holds barred. feel free to use your legal privileges as a straight person to launch yourself into reality tv mediocrity. its the american dream.

CBS has just announced their newest reality show, "Arranged Marriage." in the show, four couples, chosen for one another by their families, will actually legally get married and the show will follow those marriages and see how they turn out. what i'm getting out of this? letting gay people get married would pretty much destroy the fabric of our society, cheapen our family values, and bring about the End of Days with some dramatic rains of fire. but straight people should feel free to use marriage as a publicity stunt, a joke, a fun activity in vegas (don't worry, you can always just cancel it when you sober up!) and whatever the f*ck else they want. sounds about right. as long as the people involved are of opposite genders, its a positive addition to American culture, and jesus will in no way be upset. score one more point for reason and rationality.

Well, your point is taken. Straight people aren't doing what is right either. Some people would say the answer is for the to start doing so.

so i'm bored and just remembered your essay length post on my blog so i thought i'd return the favor!

so making a straw man argument out of the opinions of others is ok now? i'm pretty sure not very many rational people who are against gay marriage think it will destroy the fabric of society or do anything more than change the legal definition of marriage.

But since we're going to use exaggerated representations of people's opinions, i think i'll try one..."straight people have fucked marriage up and now gay people deserve a shot at it! how dare you trample on gay rights by suggesting that you disagree with someone else's value system? this is apartheid, the triangular trade and the jewish holocaust all rolled into one! we shall march the streets yelling 'si se puede' and all the other meaningless cliches about the rights of the people!"

dude, few rational members of society fit into the cookie cutter framework we would love to use to describe their opinions. people tend to be much more complex than that. chill out.

oh and I almost forgot, you tagged homophobia in this post. last i checked, a phobia is an irrational, intense, persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, or people (shout out to wikipedia). now i may just be slow but i'm almost sure that not everyone who thinks marriage is defined as the bond between a man and a woman has an irrational, intense or persistent fear of gay people or the idea of gay marriage. some of them (GASP) might just disagree. some people may in fact be homophobic but i'm quite sure we can't accuse everyone of that. let's not box people in with stereotypes, lest someone mistake your reasoned, logical perspective for knee-jerk identity politics.

tight graphic on your front page tho,
