It has been an interesting last couple of weeks- waiting to hear whether gay and lesbian Americans will be allowed to get married in New York. I find the very fact that we have to rely on straight people to decide whether we can marry to be really, really disgusting. I've never gotten to vote on whether straight people should be allowed to marry. In my own immediate family (grandparents on down) there have been 26 marriages and 12 divorces (46 percent). Of course one uncle was married five times. Sanctity!

The reasons the anti-gay folks come up with are constantly changing. One moment we shouldn't be allowed to marry is because we are promiscuous, disease-filled perverts and the next it is because it will someone destroy straight marriages because we might actually be better at it. Then it was because of those darling children, who shouldn't ever have to face reality that someones two women can be in love or that two men might be little Emily's daddies. Then it was because only a man and a woman can fuck to make babies. That one was extra special.

But really it is all about religion- there aren't a lot of atheists blathering about this topic. Now religion is a choice- you are dragged to church as a child and your head filled with whatever bullshit that particular church patriarchy spouts off before passing the collection plate. Or you have some crisis event and turn to a church because life is a lot easier if you don't have to take responsibility for your own actions.

And now, because you choose to believe in Bullshit A or Bullshit B, gays and lesbians shouldn't be allowed to marry. Unless you believe in Bullshit C which allows them to marry just to be contrary and which may cause Hasidic Jews to spit on you.

But anyways, it looks like the New York Senate will actually pass the bill. If the make believe Christian deity is so all-powerful, how can this happen? lol
