First I must disclose this about me. I do not support same-sex marriage. I like James Brown’s definition of life when he says “Its a man’s world…but it wouldn’t be nothing without a boy or a girl!”
Lets take Hollywood. At the end of movies where life as we know it is threatened, somehow, someway, Hollywood makes sure that a man and a woman makes it to the end of the movie. Okay, so you don’t like that one. I hear that a man and a woman is at the space station together. What’s really going on up there?
Have we screwed up traditional marriage so much that allowing these alternative life styles have become the only option?
Okay, if loving someone of the opposite sex and marrying them is law, then why not create a law that would allow someone to married whomever they love? Well the whomever is the operative word. Whomever equates to being human. How long would it before the argument is had that a human wants to marry an animal? Love is a feeling that a human has for another human. Could laws be changed that would redefine love so that a human can marry whatever or whomever they love? We know that anything is possible. In the meantime, let’s address the issue at hand; the gay rights issue of same-sex marriage.
Let’s talk about same-sex marriage as it relates to: Divorce, raising children, domestic violence, benefits, health care, religious affiliations, the economic and political systems, housing and employment discrimination, employment and career opportunities, and same-sex life-style.
Let’s talk about these issues as to how allowing same-sex people to be legally married has changed our cultural. Is it a game changer? Please do not express hate. Lets just talk about the pros and cons on the above issues.
