Oh, I forgot to ask my parents if I can have sex.<quoted text>
21st century does not mean that all morality has been thrown out the window. And it's true even elderly straight couples get married, but again no one is stopping any gay couple from getting married either, they do all over America, its just that the majority still view and value legally marriage as traditionally between a man and woman, and they did so through their votes. And yes like it or not the marriage ceremony is a form of the parents giving permission for their children to have sex legally and in the eyes of their god, church, and community, so they then dont have to fear that a child will be born out of wedlock or be be bastard. It was never about gays getting together.
LOL. Poe's Law!
