For those of us who are not Californians there is a Proposition that will eliminate the right for same sex couples to marry.

So here are the reasons for voting for it and the common sense responses to said arguments:



01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

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

03) 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.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

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

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Repost if you think love makes a marriage. Vote NO on Proposition 8

I've read that response, but... not for the voting.

It's been around for a while ^^

Yeah, but that's me just finding it. And the "Vote NO" appealed to me. Makes me feel like I'm doing something useful.
30th-Oct-2008 09:27 am (UTC)
That's a cool way to look at it then ^^

^_^ Well, the idea was to go volunteer at a free health clinic when I was in the States, they're absolutely crying out for help, and my visa wouldn't have let me work, but since I'm not going anymore...*shrugs*

There really isn't enough to do in the way of GLBT rights over here, unless you are, y'know? It annoys me.

Ugh sucks.

*hugs*

But, I mean, you can support internally, y/y?
30th-Oct-2008 01:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah, sure. You just don't get much of a feeling anyone in power's listening or anything. At least in a clinic, you'd be doing something active, working to fix the problem.

*sigh*

I'mma shut up now. But this something that really gets to me, y'know?
30th-Oct-2008 01:31 pm (UTC)
No, I get what you're syaing, and I understand - to a degree, since I wouldn't volunteer personally. I'm mroe of a rally type person :P

It just sucks you can't do more :(
30th-Oct-2008 01:43 pm (UTC)
I'd do rallies if I could. I did the Make Poverty History one a few years ago. We're organising going to New York during the Gay Pride Parade so we can be there. I just like the idea of intimately involved, y'know?

But yeah, it really, really does. :(

Anything that has the thread of arrest and is for a good cause, well, it's totally worth it ^^

*hugs*
31st-Oct-2008 01:54 pm (UTC)

31st-Oct-2008 02:14 pm (UTC)
Omg, it's started but I'm beat so, iono, I'll do it when I wake up tomorrow - and after work.

Love you!!
31st-Oct-2008 02:44 pm (UTC)
