Why gay people should NOT be allowed to get married

As I should have made clearer, when I first posted this list on my journal on 16th February 2004, I’m not the author of this list: it was invented by GatorGSA as a Valentine’s Day project. I just picked it up on the Internet. I think it’s brilliant.

That’s the Gator Gay Straight Alliance of the University of Florida.

12 reasons why gay people should not be allowed to get married

1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control. (You just imagined the penguins. Anyway, penguins are unnatural: they’re birds, they fly underwater. Nuff said.)

2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people can’t legally get married because the world needs more children.

3. Obviously, gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if Gay marriage is allowed, since Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

5. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are property, blacks can’t marry whites, and divorce is illegal.

6. Gay marriage should be decided by people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of the minorities.

7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire counrty. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

9. 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.

10. Children can never suceed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven’t adapted to things like cars or longer lifespans.

12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a “seperate but equal” institution is always constitutional. Seperate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as seperate marriages for gays and lesbians will.

An eyewitness account of last weekend’s historic weddings in San Francisco, and some great photographs.

Another account of a marriage, and of how anti-marriage bigots were dumbfounded by the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner. “Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just”…


  1. […] As I noted yesterday in The Awful Self-Pity of a Self-Righteous Bigot, the only difference between the pile of reasons why same-sex couples shouldn’t be allowed to marry and a hill of beans is that the beans make a nutritious and tasty […]

    • I am not gay but i think it is totally fine if someone is thats just who they are and there life other people shouldn’t be allowed to inter fear with others lives or make decisions for them and now i shall address each comment

      1. WTF penguins are awesome not unnatural and if someone loves someone gay or straight they still love each other and no matter what your do there will always be gays so just let it happen and don’t judge and birth control if someone is taking birth control it’s better than doing an abortion
      2.Ok so some people have sex they make a baby gays adopt the baby not that hard and a lot of times gays are nicer than straights
      3. My next-door neighbors are straight and their son is gay and my friend is straight while his parents are gay
      4. there would be no difference in the world gay and straight marriage will still have the same exact meaning no matter what
      5. I thought that blacks can marry whites or are we now in the south during the 1800′s women are not property they are human beings and what does divorce have to do with this subject
      6.”Gay marriage should be decided by people” then how come gay people still aren’t allowed to get married
      7.Gay marriage does not have anything to do with religion and last time i checked there were a lot more than just one religion in america
      8. people being gay will always happen and i am pretty sure being tall is genetic
      9. Gays will go crazy???? How please elaborate. And if i wanna marry my dog who cares its my life!!!!!!!!
      10. So thats just why my friend is so successful doing ads on tv while his parents are gay and single parents actually kick ass when raising children with all of the handwork they do
      11. Obviously we have changed because we have adapted to a society where there are gays and straights now and forever
      12. again are we in like the 1800′s or what ????

      If you agree with this guy theres a special place in H**L for you so F**K you, you racist B******S

  3. I think you are being immature. Why are you being so sarcastic it makes you sound illiterate.

    1. I think that people are not born gay. I think it is one of two things maybe both is the cause. 1. chemical imbalance. 2. Childhood trauma or adolescent trauma, or even being raped or molested at any age. I know plenty of gay people and all of them have had trauma. Some do not even remember but then finally found out later in life. I do not think that confused people should be married gay or straight for that matter. society had become a joke and its because religion has been obsolete in schools. morals in general or gone. they keep getting striped away. People there has to be a line somewhere in the sand. the bible states. A man shall not lie with another man as he would a woman. it means he does not approve of being gay. also yeah if you are not religious gays cannot reproduce. its unnatural and is not meant to be. the species will not survive. if you look at a pedophile’s childhood they too had some sort of trauma. and then they just pass the trauma on. it is a vicious circle. the line has to be drawn. to prevent the repeated trauma. traditional marriage has enough problems as it is do we need this much more. I am not saying gays are pedophiles or they hurt children intentionally. but they have tremendous effects of young people’s views on life if they are raised by gay’s. people who have faulty views on life should not be able to adopt. if you want a child you know what you have to do (naturally) look at the abortion rate, crime, poverty, all because morals have gone out the window because of decades of faulty viewed people raising children. this country is doomed there is no turning back now.

    • I have a gay sister i am not gay but if you want to turn this into a religios thing well look at what OUR country has done to us. they are trying to take ALL of our rights from us and just because gays raise a child does not mean that they will be gay from my point of view it will make them a more open mined adult. have you looked at the diviorce rate in america? we as american people have let our country go down hill! we are suppose to be a free country, nothing is free anymore. As far as the 12 resons why they shouldn’t be allowed to get married that a crock of shit. If we, the american people, allow them to marry yes they can not reporduce but they could adopt! they would help get the kids out of foster home and into a home where they will be loved and cared for. Who cares if they are allowed to marry, at the end of the day is it really hurting you? we are over populated as it is.

      • once more unto the breech…

        Amanda, what was posted was originally created by a Gay/Straight Alliance, and it’s SATIRE. it takes all the “arguments” that those who don’t want gay marriage USE, and shows how they’re BS.

        PAY ATTENTION. go back and read the WHOLE original post – it’s VERY obvious that it’s satire and the OP is FOR gay marriage being legalized.

        now, the specific person you responded to? HE isn’t for gay marriage, in fact, he’s apparantly completely UN-American and wants a theocracy. note how he quotes the part of the Bible that backs up his claim, and IGNORES the parts of the Bible that contradict his claim – note also how he mentions ONE of over 600 laws in Liviticus, ignoring all the OTHER laws that he, himself, doesn’t keep – and of those laws, many were of the same “weight” as the supposed anti-gay laws [“supposed” because it’s a 4000 year old document that’s been translated multiple times and we KNOW it’s be MIS-translated VERY often – so until one can read it in the orginal Hebrew and Aramaic, i’d take it with a grain of salt. or a whole shaker therof]. like men not cutting facial hair, and people not eating shrimp – the same word translated as “abomonation” was used for all 3 laws. but i bet you this guy shaves and eats shrimp.

    • Yes, because I would choose to be bullied for four years of my life, and for random strangers to come up to me and have a go at me.
      Chemical Imbalance? or maybe just a different set of chemicals, oh no wait, if something is different to your tiny world it must be wrong, sorry. No trauma in my life; there’s trauma in plenty of straight people’s lives, oh my, maybe half the population of the world is actually gay! Confused? Where did you drag confused from, is this an insult to the intelligence of all gays saying we cannot comprehend our sexuality? Or are YOU confused, you can’t comprehend why anybody would want to be different to your perfect sexuality. So, because both religion and science are taught, the younger generation are now immoral? How about, because we do not have religion forced down our throats and we are allowed to make our own choices, we’re not limited to one point of view.
      You may think that homosexuality is sin in the eyes of Christianity. But as there is SO much evidence supporting the fact that homosexuality is genetic, and I can’t choose who I find attractive, it’s NOT a choice. A sin is a choice, this in clear when the Devil is tempting Job, God makes sure he is not tempted past his limit! Also, Jesus threw out Leviticus in his time, and I believe that is where your quote is taken from. Furthermore, it is the same as prawns. There were laws for the Israelites, they couldn’t eat prawns because they didn’t have the equipment to cook them properly and not get ill from food poisoning. If gay sex is not performed with caution, it can transfer diseases, and so that is why it is said in the BIble.
      What is the obsession with the species surviving? I do not speak for everyone, but I personally do not see the important of creating a load of people who would be born into a world of hatred, war, stratification etc. and letting them burn down the environment. And as it stands, the world is incredibly over populated. It is not natural? Unless you’re religious, or don’t believe in evolution, you would think our bodies are not designed, they are just a product of evolution; therefore nothing is natural. If you are religious, then since there is an outstanding amount of evidence to prove that homosexuality is not a choice, but genetic, then since God made each one of us himself, I am obviously not flawed by an innate characteristic.
      Umm, excuse me? Why are you comparing me to a paedophile…
      THERE IS NO TRAUMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Faulty views on life? Oh, I wish to fall in love with a man, and be happy with him, raise a child and do everything I can to support them, Jesus, they are some INCREDIBLY flawed views.
      Yes, morals have gone out the window. Every gay is a promiscuous male, blatantly. The country is doomed because guys fall in love with guys and girls fall in love with girls.
      And P.S.
      Homosexuality is found in over 450 species. Homophobia is found in one. What’s ‘natural’ now? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • First, we were created in Godd image. Second, God gave you free will to make your own choices and act on your own feelings. third, it is a feeling that you get that makes you like the same sex, therefore, it is not any different than a rapest who feels he has to rape women to be sexually fulfilled. Also the molester who gets off on touching little kids. It’s all acted out on feelings that you have. I have feelings that I feel strongly about, but it doesn’t make them right or ok. Also with the bible it talks about traditions and ideas that are created by man and laws set by man. You cannot take what man created and use it to conflict what God has said! We are all created for a purpose in life. Unfortunately being gay isn’t one of those purposes. I see a lot of desperation to twist and contort the bible. You cannot compare specific law of man in the bible with specific law of God in the bible. It specifically says in the bible that God looks down on homosexuality not eating shrimp!

    • Getting married to a member of the same sex isn’t the same as marrying your family members. People are people, black or white, right? So what’s the difference between male or female. The writer of that artical was blind in the most fantastic way. Maybe we should just take gay people as slaves now? Because they aren’t ‘human’ because ‘humans’ deserve to marry who they want. Just like the blacks. They weren’t considered people. Now we have a black president. As foolish as he’s acting, he is still considered a person. So what now? Are we going to have to wait for gay people to act up and speak there minds for them to finaly be seen equal in the eyes of fellow citizens? Love doesn’t have a gender.

      • the writer of that article was indulging in the literary form known as “satire”. the POINT was to show that “anti-gay” is a BS position.

        the writer has, i’m sure, become VERY tired of pointing this is [hence me doing so]. on the OTHER hand, the COMMENT you’re replying to? *IS* as bigoted as you think the writer is.
        and everything ELSE you said is 1,000,000% TRUE.

        if we keep saying it, eventually it’ll get through to everyone. over HALF the country believe same-sex marriage should be legal [it’s just that most don’t CARE enough to do anything about it]

  13. Wow.. This list is utterly ridiculous, and very untrue. I’ve known gay people since I was a child, and I am not gay. Really why is it such a problem, they can’t choose who they love, just like you can’t choose who you love, how would you like it if society said you can’t marry someone. Just because they are gay doesn’t mean their children will be, I know plenty of gay people who have raised children just fine, and they aren’t gay. Studies have also proven that a child raised in a heterosexual home is no different than one raised in a same-sex home. AS for it’s unnatural, what is natural, there really isn’t a definition of natural, at least in society. Everyone is different. The all kinds of crazy really, that is really far fetched, do you really believe people will want to marry their dog, if you do you have a really strange Imagination. I really don’t think it is bad. Just let them get married, will it harm you that much.
    What you should do is focus more on the institute of marriage. Marriage is a joke,what is our divorce rate, nearly 50% of couples get divorced. That is a problem. Not gay couples wanting the same rights as everyone else. I think you really need to look at your priorities.

      • perhaps because assholes like you spend their time ensuring that gays are mistreated everywhere? they’re persecuted, mocked, attacked…

        READ your holy book, ok? points: 1) one can believe in God without being Christian or Jewish, and other religions *DO* accept same-sex marriage as valid 2) your OWN HOLY BOOK says a LOT of things – specifically, the things JESUS said. like “DON’T JUDGE” and “LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF” and “TURN THE OTHER CHEEK”. Jesus HEALED a gay man. Jesus said and did a LOT of things, and what it boiled down to is “Unless you are God, you have NO RIGHT to judge another UNLESS they are doing ACTUAL PROVABLE HARM. PERIOD. that woman cheated on her husband? NOT YOUR BUSINESS. that man and that other man got married? NOT YOUR BUSINESS”
        Jesus preached LOVE TOLERANCE and MERCY.

        show any of it. show ALL of it. or quit preaching – Jesus hates hypocracy a HELL of a lot more than he hates sex. READ THE GOSPELS. [ignore the rest, especially Paul – Paul never met Jesus and most of what he wrote was for political purposes. he was also a well-know misogynist, and he HATED Rome with an unholy passion, which is the ONLY reason he preached against Male/Male homosexuality – it being a standard practice in MOST of the Western world at that point, because Rome didn’t think it bad or illegal. on the other hand, Paul didn’t seem to care about Female/Female homosexuality… makes ya wonder, no?].

        here’s ANOTHER point. Usuary – charging or PAYING interest on a loan [99% of USians are guilty of this, probably ALL of them at some point] is mentioned HUNDREDS of times in the Bible as a HUGE *NO!* Jesus allowed [or perhaps, caused] bankers to die for practicing “usury”. homosexuality is mentioned SIX TIMES. most in the OT. NEVER by Jesus [except by implication when he healed the partner of a Centurion]. which do you think JESUS actually cared about?

  18. macie, i do believe YOUR post was the ‘absolute dumbest’ thing i’ve ever read.

    Why don’t we back that little tongue of yours up a fraction, and have a go at re reading the original journal.. hmm?

    2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children.

    -Infertile couples and old people can’t legally get married because the world needs more children.-

    due to the fact that i presume you’re a little slow, the text separated by these guys – text- IS THE PART OF THE JOKE AS TO WHY’12 REASONS GAY PEOPLE SHOULD NOT GET MARRIED

    obviously infertile couples are able to get married, along with old people.
    I think you’ll find that the sarcasm comes at the end of the ‘reason’.

    “4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if Gay marriage is allowed, since Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful. ”

    there we go again, obviously he isn’t paying out gay people.. he is paying out britney spears and people alike who take marriage so seriously, that the engagement, wedding and honeymoon is over in 55hrs.

    so re read the blog.. and then express your opinion.

    I am embarrassed by the idiocy in here.

  27. omg that is sooo stupid..who the fuck came up wit all of this. I mean just because gay people have children doesnt mean their children are gay (and I have seen many examples of that). Many of those children have actually grown up heterosexual and become doctors. Gays are born that way and shouldnt be descriminated against. People that are gay are sometimes very religious and whether they admit they are gay or not they are still gay. and wtf is that about people who are infertle or old are forbidden to have kids, and single parents are forbidden to raise kids? My next door neighbor is infertle so they adopted and they are such great parents. I cant imagine any one being a better parent, except for my mom. Who, by the way, was a single parent and is such a great role model for me and my brother. Who ever wrote this doesnt know what the fuck they are talking about and needs to get a life.

  28. I don’t care if whoever wrote this is being sarcastic it’s not funny sounds more like hate and descrimination!!! If you love somone strongly you should be able to marry them regardless of sex or race. I think people so prejadice even jelous that a man and a man or a woman and a woman can love each other more than they can love theirself. And with the race comment wow seriously, we are all human the sons and daughters of god just diffrent he put us on the earth as his children he did not want there just to be white people he did’nt just want humans so he put colored people and animals! We are all decedents from africans dummys!!! And why is it that just black people can’t marry outside of their race their are others?!? Anyways this is my opinion and I will stick to it regardless!!!

    • They could have been gay or straight: the original list was compiled by GatorGSA of the University of Florida for Valentine’s Day 2004. The Gator Gay-Straight Alliance sprang into being in the fall of 2000. The Alliance’s purpose is to end homophobia (and indeed all forms of discrimination). The Alliance is ‘outward-directed’; that is, the efforts are not for the members but for the community in which we all live.

      I am absolutely charmed that six years later even people who can’t spell or recognise satire now support equal rights for GLBT people and gay marriage.

    so is this.

    i’ve seen the list before [the local Gay/Straight alliance office, in fact, when i took one of the kids i mentor to a meeting – being 15 and a lesbian in the closet *HAS* to suck, and since i’m straight, i can’t really “get” it, so i took her to people who do] but it’s always funny when i run into it again 😀 ESPECIALLY because I? i am one of those women who CAN’T have kids. lol. and it was legal for me to get married. and it’s even legal for me to marry my black fiancee 😀

As I can see you’re not so bright.Because #1:Just because a child’s parents are gay doesn’t mean that they will raise their child to be gay.Nine times out of ten they will raise thier child to go with their gutt and just be themselves because of what they’ve went through.I am twelve years old and I can tell that your an ignorant dumbass!I call my elders out when they say eww when they happen to see two males kissing or two people who aren’t strait.Because you can’t control who someone loves.That’s how they feel.What if they never let African Americans be free.We wouldn’t have half of the entertainment business that we have today.Or half of the NBA!It’s truley rediculous how obsurd some people act.People who want to be strait will be strait.People who want to be gay will be gay.Everyone will choose their paths.There is no right or wrong way…..Damn retards.

    • as i can see, you’re not old enough to understand the point of this post…

      PAY ATTENTION. it’s called “satire” and the *entire point* of the post is to A) MAKE FUN OF people who are anti-gay people and B)SHOW HOW STUPID people like that are.

      but you just attacked the person [the person who has ALREADY STATED that he got this material from “Gator Gay&Straight Alliance”. as in, *GAY PEOPLE HELPED WRITE AND APPROVED THIS SATIRICAL LIST*

      and the only reason *I* am not ignoring you is your stated age – still young enough to learn better. the writer of this journal is *VERY* much PRO, *not* “anti”

      READ MORE CLOSELY. especially since he said BEFORE THE LIST STARTS that he got this list from a GSA. a gay&straight alliance.

      also; “retard”? *NOT* a cool world. if you hell at people for saying “that’s gay” then you should yell at them for [and yourself NOT use] “that’s retarded” and all forms thereof.

      don’t understand why? Google “feminists with disabilities and “retarded””

  36. ok really people whats so wrong with gay marriage or even gays at all. i am a straight women. so dont get me wrong. but whats really is the big deal about. u love someone then u get married, right but u have to be a man and a women cuz the bible says that so the law goes by religion then. But if you dont believ in wat the buble says or god then what? really law and religion is seperate for a reaason so if u are in love even with the same sex why not allow them to get married. i known a few gay couples just cuz there gay dosnt mean if they have achild there gona rise a gay child. every person chooses what they want and who to fall in love with. and most gays are just like anyone else. really whats the difference between someone whos gay and someone whos straght. exactly nothing besides there personal life. the law states we have freedom, of speach, and do what we want without hurting anyone so how is being gay hurting anyone? if u can answer this let me no. the only thing i can think of this hurting anything or anyone is society it self which stupied. because soceity states children are better off living with a father and a mother. i know many kids are just find with a well rounded good role models that let choose whats right for them wen they grow up and not judge other people beacuse of others background sex color or even there sex life. i have known great gay parents and know good streaight parents as will. so in my opion people in society are always gona be scared of the un known, the knew, adn whats differnt, beacause thats not how is, its always been this know changes. but years go women were at home and no rights know we are treted like men why beacse we are the same and fought for it. So whats the diferent between gays and straights? knowing besides who they sleep with at night. If gay marriges we really not sopose to happen do some states aloow it and others dont? so really people gays are just the same as straights they just live diferent personal like then most people. so get over yourself and let people do what they want we do still have freedom right what will it hurt no one besides the gays u wront allow to marry cux the bible says or state counts why should the state or law tell us who we marry as long as its a human not someone we a realated to and or a child.

  41. So why is it wrong? I dont see any valid reason on this list. The world needs more children? Hello! This Earth is vastly over populated! Look at China! We dont need more children.
    If two people love each other, why shuldn’t they marry? They want to share their lives together, there is no crime in that. Gay people will raise gay children? You couldn’t be more wrong! Straight people raise children, gay people raise children. Who ever these children become is partially due to environmental factors, but is down to that person. You cant help being gay no more than you can help needing glasses.
    There us a massive difference between marrying your same sex partner, and marrying an animal. Gay people are gay, but they are humans, great humans just like any other human. And hello! Look at how many heterosexual marriages fail! Religion contradicts itself. All it preeches is how to love others as equals, and value each other. All you are saying is that they are immoral and wrong for being different! If we were all the same, it would be an awful world we live in. We are apparently “made in God’s image”, then that is what God is…Unique, special, divine and different for everyone!
    People being gay doesn’t stop any heterosexual person from being straight. Same as heterosexual people can’t stop any homosexual from being gay. You are who you are, and you have basically devalued many inteligent people who know who they are and value themselevs, as they should. And another thing, children need a loving, stable home with support and guidance into life. Gay couples can do this to! They can give love, and show love, and guide and discipline when necessary. My mother is a single parent and has done a marvelous job. You dont need two parents of opposite sex to raise a child right, you need love.
    Overall, who ever wrote this is shallow and stupid. Some of these comments were made by someone who clearly needs an education. We are all equal, and all apart of the world, that INCLUDES homosexual people.

    • Hi

      YET AGAIN – this list is SATIRE. the POINT of the list is to PROVE that the “Reasons” the anti-gay crowd throw out are total BS.
      this was WRITTEN by a group of GAY PEOPLE, posted by the OP – and he SAID THAT BEFORE THE LIST.

      learn. to. read. read the comments, made by myself and others, explaining OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, to people with the reading comprehension of your average tea-bagger, what’s REALLY going on.

      then go hate the correct people, if hate you must. better yet, don’t hate at all, and DO SOMETHING to help the LGBTQI people, and let your voice [which is pro-gay] be HEARD.

    “Blacks can’t marry whites, and divorce is illegal”
    Actually YES blacks CAN marry whites you stupid piece of shit.
    Divorce is actually NOT illegal, its very legal.
    “Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven’t adapted to things like cars or longer lifespans”
    We have very much adapted to cars, being that a new model is made EVERY year!
    Also we live longer than people back in the 1800s.
    “People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract”
    Actually NO dogs CAN NOT sign marriage contracts, they dont have opposable thumbs moron!
    Get your facts straight before you post stuff on the internet, you ignorant c–t.
    Thank you.

    • sat·ire /ˈsætaɪər/ –noun

      1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.

      2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.

      3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.

      Not for nothing, but it’s a little irritating to be called an “ignorant c–t” by some uneducated ignoramus who evidently thinks The Onion is a serious newspaper.

      …though mind you, during the Bush years, if you wanted to know what US policy was going to be in a year’s time, you just had to look at The Onion headlines of last week.

  47. I am gay. I don’t agree with these comments because if parents are gay that doesn’t mean the child would be gay and if the parents are straight that doesn’t determine whether the child would be straight or gay. I myself believe in God. I have grown up in the church, I believe that God excepts me the way I am because he is a merciful God. I love who I love, not because of gender but because of who makes me happy, love has no gender. You say its a sin to be gay but the question is did you lay and have sex with a man when you were not married? That is a sin as well but a Christian knows that judging someone is not a feature of Gods work, because he accept us for who we are. I love kids and kids love being around me I don’t influence them I tell them to follow their hearts because telling a child what he or she can’t do is nearly impossible because they are going to do it anyway. Just like when you were young and your mother told you don’t touch that pot because its hot but you didn’t know until you got burnt. Love is of the essence and the heart God doesn’t make mistakes he choose the person that will keep you happy and motivated. Just because I am gay doesn’t determine what or who I am. There is a lot of parents today who are married with their husbands and are not happy but they only do it because someone tells them what they are doing is an abomination to God. No one knows what is an abomination to God because they are not the master themselves he determines what is pleasing to the eye. In what is pleasing to his eye is accepting him as your lord and savior and not being afraid of who you are.

On one hand, I am a bit afraid of backlash, but I’m really more interested in seeing how many more say “you go girl!” without understanding the concept that I don’t necessarily promote, but accept it. Prime example being my mother, who cyberstalks everything I write. If I have a membership at a site, she goes and creates one to stalk me. Creepy, right? Anyhow, great list.

What kind of TV do you watch? No matter how tall your friends are, IT WON’T MAKE YOU ANY TALLER. And no one is dumb enough to marry their pet. Why the fuck who anyone do that? An animal is not a person. Just because they passed a law for same sex marriage, doesn’t mean you can marry your pet! There’s definitely a big difference between man and animal. Gays are not any different from you or from me. They aren’t going around killing anyone. No one is being harmed by two people who love eachother getting married. Plus, nowhere in the Bill of Rights does it say same gender couples can’t get married. The constitution was made for EVERYONE in our country, not just heterosexuals. Marriage is about two people who love eachother wanting to make it official. That’s what it should be about. Not whether or not you are the same sex. As for religion, I respect their opinion and the way they live, but loving someone is not a sin. Going back to the constitution, religious people don’t have the right to deny someone of their rights. The same rights that they have. That should be sin. Oh, and not to mention I’M 14. WOMAN ARE PROPERTY?! WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU? I really hope one day your child is gay, so that you can have sooooo much guilt because you can’t do anything about it. You’ll have to love them, and realize THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. OUR WORLD NEEDS DIFFERENT PEOPLE. And I’m not talking about people who wrote this dumb article.

  63. you are a fucking idiot. you are very obviously racist as well as a homophobe. my mom was a single mother and i know damn well i was raised better than the ignorant son of a bitch that you are! if straight partners raise only straight children then how did gays come to be? they came from a straight mother who had hetero sex with a male you dumb peice of shit. and what exactly makes gay marriage less meaningful than hetero marriage? they love eachother just the same the only difference is they have the same parts you cant help who you love. by the way our world is overpopulated. so it would actually help us some if we just had a few less kids. and i feel really sorry for your significant other if the only reason your marrying her/him is to have kids. karmas a bitch and i do hope you have a wonderfully gay child who forces you to accept the beauty of true love in all forms. your just a little to defensive abouit all this by the way? any chance you might be a little gay yourself.

    • pot, meet kettle. you ARE an idiot. please look up the definition of “satire”. please understand that this is sarcasm and satire, and was – 8 years ago! – originally written by members of a Gay/Straight Alliance, as a way to point out the IDIOCY of homophobic idiots. it was NOT written by Jesurgislac, though zie reposted it with the SAME INTENTION as the original. jesurgislac is, as you pointed out, gay zieself – but isn’t closeted, and works to forward equality. other than attacking people on your side because you’re either too ignorant or too lazy to understand, what do you do?

  69. One of your reasons say ‘gay couples raise gay children’. This is not true! My mother’s girlfriend raised a son, which is not gay! As well as a girl and neither is she. My mother came out about six years ago, and me nor my brothers are gay. Yes some children with gay parents may come out gay, but that is the lifestyle they chose. It’s not just because of their parents.
