The Sexual Fetish of Gay Marriage Opponents

Mar 22, 2013 Full story: www.slate.com 263

As the Supreme Court prepares to hear Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor, opponents of same-sex marriage have scrambled to answer the central question: What is the government’s rational interest in preventing gays from marrying? The standard argument from moral disapproval was revoked by Romer v. Evans and Lawrence v. Texas. The argument that gay marriages undermine the family has been debunked by a decade of same-sex marriage in several countries. So, as Proposition 8 and DOMA wound their way through the courts, gay marriage opponents lit upon a more durable argument, seemingly grounded in science rather than animus or religion. Their case, presented most comprehensively by Princeton professor Robert P. George, is that only sex acts with a “dynamism toward reproduction” — that is, penile to vaginal intercourse — create true marriages and lead to legitimate child-rearing. Same-sex marriages, by this theory, are not “real” marriages, because they do not involve “organic bodily union.”

Editor's note: so I guess all infertile heterosexuals are also denied legal marriage then?

I knew someone who had a pet rat and it was really cute. Unlike our haters. I was speaking of sewer rats, or worse. I just hate to see any poor ugly creature suffering, except Snicker's old skank whore mother, she deserves to be punished for producing such a horror as that brat of hers.

At least I don't make up false names every 3 seconds and pretend to be in different countries, liar.

I was born in Torrance, Calif.
I grew up in Redondo Beach, Calif.
I have lived in Long Beach and now Palm Springs.

When I was younger, I lived in Munich, Germany for a while.

I realized I was gay, though didn't quite understand it, when i was about 6 years old, before I even knew what sex was, was never molested, never converted, it was just me from day one.

Anything else, LIAR? Oh, by the way, REGISTER, you coward. Little pussy.
