current mood: srsly

Gay couples don't deserve the right to get married because they are... better parents than straight couples?


[T]he New York court also put forth another argument, sometimes called the “reckless procreation” rationale. “Heterosexual intercourse,” the plurality opinion stated, “has a natural tendency to lead to the birth of children; homosexual intercourse does not.” Gays become parents, the opinion said, in a variety of ways, including adoption and artificial insemination, “but they do not become parents as a result of accident or impulse.”

Consequently, “the Legislature could find that unstable relationships between people of the opposite sex present a greater danger that children will be born into or grow up in unstable homes than is the case with same-sex couples... the Legislature could rationally offer the benefits of marriage to opposite-sex couples only.”


Wow! Did you hear what the New York Supreme Court said, folks? They said it's not that gays aren't good enough to get married, it's that STRAIGHTS aren't good enough to NOT get married!

No one could ever accuse them of homophobia now.

::headdesk:: Seriously, people. Stop trying to play both sides of the fence, placating both the radical righties and your own uneasy feelings around homosexuality by keeping gay marriage illegal while pretending that you're totally absolutely 100% a-okay with gay people. You're not fooling anyone.

Yes, okay, so:

So what they're saying is:

- all straight couples who do get married are automatically "stable" (because people never get married for the wrong reasons)
- all gay couples who choose to have a child through various means are automatically "stable" (because people never have kids on purpose for the wrong reasons)
- all straight couples who *choose* not to get married are not "stable" and incapable of committing to their kids

Slap a "the only legitimate reason to enter into marriage is to provide a support system for procreation" on top, and you got it!

last turnoff before Canada

Man, I feel kind of guilty for being a Canadian and not having a gay marriage, since I'm obviously entitled to one and no one cares what I do. I wonder if Jamie would object if I platonically married one of my female friends.
