Proposition 8 
29th-Oct-2008 12:39 am
Proposition 8

1. Being Gay Is Not Natural
And real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning, tattoos, piercings and silicon breasts...

2. Gay Marriage Will Encourage People To Be Gay
In the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing Gay Marriage Will Open The Door To All Kinds Of Crazy Behavior
People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract. Lamps are next.

4. Straight Marriage Has Been Around A Long Time And Hasn't Changed At All
Hence why women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight Marriage Will Be Less Meaningful If Gay Marriage Were Allowed
And we can't let the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage be destroyed.

6. Straight Marriages Are Valid Because They Produce Children
So therefore, gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our population isn't out of control, our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously Gay Parents Will Raise Gay Children
Since, of course, straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay Marriage Is Not Supported By Religion
In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children Can Never Succeed Without A Male And A Female Role Model
Which is exactly why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay Marriage Will Change The Foundation Of Society; We Could Never Adapt To New Social Norms
Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

I've seen this before, but I smile every time. I wish everyone would just wake up and step out of their own narrow-minded bubbles.

I am SO hoping my state votes right, but I must admit I am worried. There are a lot of hateful, ignorant people around here.

NO ON 8!

Grrrrrr....I hate the fact that we're even living in a country where this is a fucking issue! Gayness is not a contagion! It's not some horrible thing...

It's natural. It's human.

Judging someone for their sexuality is the inhuman fucking thing to do...

My grandma, who is kind of anti-gay, thinks that this shouldn't even be an issue...she thinks that gay people should have the right to marry, and that it's not anyone else's business...

Close-mindedness makes me mad. :(

*fumes quietly in the corner*

cheers! <33333

And this is yet another reason I love Canada. When the government finally got around to addressing the issue it was made legal across the country and all was happy. Well, except the brief worry that Harper might try to get it overturned, but with his minority government he didn't have a shot in hell and now I think the chance has mostly passed.

So, um, Yay Canada. And I hope the vote goes well in the States.
