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 The standard argument from moral disapproval was revoked by Romer v. Evans and Lawrence v. Texas.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?

"In a sense, George is correct: Perry and Windsor are not simply about who gets to marry, but what marriage is. Is it fundamentally rooted in a sex act? Or is it a means of securing two people’s love and commitment to each other and their children? That, as much as any legal doctrine, is the question the court now faces. "

In many places and times it is neither - it is a way for economic combination of two families or a method of adhering to a cultural directive to have children (in the latter case, that usually means male children). Very few societies even expect monogamy from the male partner in a heterosexual marriage and in some it is not expected from either.

PS: I though this article was going to be about heterosexuals engaging in "scat", since that is what our friend NoQ is so obsessed with.

Two men who bugger each other up the butt should not be allowed anywhere near children!

But those heterosexual religious white men from middle-class families are allowed around children, who by the way commit 80% of the Child Molestation cases that have been prosecuted!!!

Read this:
from the study, we know that child molesters are as equally married, educated, employed, and religious as any other Americans.

Queers are the ones molesting little boys. They may still be in the closet, but they're still queers. Wish we could stop queers from molesting little boys.

It would be a lot safer for little boys if R1's probation officer would find out he's using his computer for hate speech...

And if two heterosexuals cannot produce children, for whatever reason, should they also be barred from being married ?

Should we prohibit by law, the marriage of any woman past menopause, because she cannot produce children ? That would be logical IF marriage is ONLY for producing children, wouldn't it ?

Sorry dumbazz, but men who molest boys are NOT considered Gay.......but then you don't give a crap about the false allegations you make in the first place!!!

Pedophiles don't have normal sexual orientations......so, most consider themselves heterosexuals, when in fact they are more than likely bisexual!!!
