Stop Hating People based On Who They Love!I don't think words can adequately express how SICK I am of homophobia and all the anti gay marriage folks!!! I truly don't even get why so many people feel it's permissible to deny consenting adults their right to marry - a basic civil right. It's preposterous! If you are against gay marriage then don't have one, don't attend one. But to deny others their right to form legal unions is just WRONG. In fact, I think it's also totally anti-child too. Conservatives like to try and argue the family values, what-about-the-children debate...but then they deny people the right to form legal families. If you, like myself, are totally pro-children's rights then don't deny their parents the right to marry! Like it or not, there will always be children of gay couples (some biological, some adopted, whatever)...and these children deserve to have legally sanctioned and protected families just like any other child whose straight parents choose to marry.
I also find it absurd when people try to argue that allowing gay marriage somehow cheapens the "sanctity" of straight marriage. Give me a break! How is that even possible?! Look at the divorce rates in America! It's not like straight couples have been doing such a great job with preserving the sanctity of marriage and honoring the institution.
I think it's an absolute disgrace that the USA is so backwards when it comes to our collective government stance on gay marriage. I truly believe we will look back at this era with the same disgust and shock that we feel when we look back on US anti-miscegenation laws. Get over it, people. Stop hating people because of who they love!!!
