There are a few things in this world that get me riled up.
- Is hunting. I don’t get why people find killing innocent animals fun. I realize certain animals over-populate areas, and it’s for control. But what did they do wrong? Living their lives is suddenly illegal.
- Hatred towards those who have issues with the English language. I speak English fluently, and even then, I have a hard time speaking my own language on occasion. Have you ever taken a foreign language? My teachers told me constantly that English is so hard, with our different pronunciations of words that have similar spellings and pronunciations (ie; through, tough).
- Equal Rights/Same-Sex marriage.
It’s on the third example that I am definitely quite outspoken. I believe that everyone has the right to marry. Whether you’re attracted to the same sex, or opposite sex; it doesn’t matter. People with mental handicaps are allowed to marry, and they live perfectly normal lives. Hell, even prison inmates on Death Row are allowed to marry. But Sam and Kevin, are denied their right to share their lives together in matrimony, because The Bible says it’s a sin, and defies all laws of nature.
There are people in this world who are married to inanimate objects. While I agree the Eiffel Tower is a beautiful piece of architecture, I don’t want to marry it. There are people who are in love with their cars. But two people of the same gender cannot marry because a bunch of religious zealots think it’s unnatural and disgusting.
You know what’s disgusting? Hatred. We condemn racism, bigotry, and polyagmy. These things are unnatural, disgusting, and go against religious beliefs that many people hold near to themselves. At one point, it was illegal for Mary an African-American woman to marry Johnny, a white man unless they wanted to be arrested. We’ve done away with such a ridiculous law, but we cannot get past homosexuals marrying.
It’s a stupid fight, people. There are more newsworthy things happening in the world. AIDS, war, famine, disease, and homelessness to name a few. Two people of the same sex wanting to marry should not be such a hot-button issue.
You may agree, you may disagree. I am prepared for the mean comments. But let me tell you this: I have several family members who think Mitt Romney is a fucking God come to save us all. And while I am still on speaking terms with my Grandma, I have denied any knowledge of the other’s existences. You’re entitled to your opinion, and I am mine. And I have the tendency to get mean when you attack people I love (yes, I have a gay friend), so keep that in mind.
