I got a nasty response to one of me comments about the gay character in How To Train Your Dragon 2. He said gays were trying to shove their gayness in everyone’s faces. Ok, there are some very flamboyant, in your face gay people. They love being camp, and drawing attention.
Most gay/bi people just want to live their lives in peace. They want the freedom to get married, to have or adopt kids. They want to have the privileges afforded to married couples (pensions, benefits, inheritance, etc)
Why is it so hard to grasp the concept of live and let live? Is a same sex couple being able to get married going to interfere with their third divorce or something? Is having a loving couple willing to adopt a child out of the foster care system such a horrible thing? Why can’t people just mind their own business?
I happen to be bi, and I’ve been married to man for 20 years. Having a same sex couple getting married doesn’t change a thing about my life. Having it be legal across the entire country is a good thing. Think of the boost to the economy the weddings would be. And if nothing else, think how entertaining a gay Divorce Court would be.
Like it’s been said, if you don’t like gay marriage, don’t marry a gay person. But why should your prejudices prevent them from being happy? And don’t spout the biblical crap about traditional marriage. Traditional marriage meant one man with multiple wives. Brides were bought, sold and bartered. A marriage is the joining of two lives as one.
All any of us ask for is equality. Yes, I am in a “traditional” marriage. But this does effect me. It effects my bi best friend. It effects everyone.
