History Of Gay Marriage In The United States (INFOGRAPHIC)
Mind you, ALL of this activity took place WHILE the United States legal definition of marriage was in effect.
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
This thread has turned really strange with Dooble's bizarre posts.
Gays are apparently bad because there's "more" gay porn (who the hell actually counts and creates that statistic?) and because gay men have more sex partners than heterosexual men (because it's always only about men). Guess what, MEN have more sexual partners! So, the main complaint that this guy has against gay men... is really just about men.
And then we get to pride parades. Because someone who dresses in an elaborate costume for a spectacle does the same in their everyday life. Marching band members are always in uniform and walk like that, even at the grocery store. People who go to Star Trek conventions wear their uniforms year round. Actors wear their stage makeup 24/7. These are clearly true facts.
What possible bearing could any of that have on... well, I'm not really sure. I think it's just an argument of "gays are bad, mmmkay". And, of course, we have the "gay agenda". Seldom does anyone ever really explain what that is. I think it's something really awful like "gain social acceptance." Why that is a bad thing, however, is something they can never explain. Usually it falls back on the "gays are bad, mmmkay" argument. And invoking the bible.
Seriously, why do that? That is one argument that is never going to convince anyone new. People who believe it believe it, people who don't, don't. And the former will continue to shrink. Who seriously cares what the bible says or not? Either something is harmful or its not. And in this case, sexual orientation creates no harm whatsoever. The poor treatment of people based on their orientation certainly does, and shame on bigots for treating people so poorly and disgracing the role models they claim to emulate.
And then we have "the left is evil" conspiracy nonsense. Because "if the left doesn't like something, it must be wrong". Ever think that maybe dislike of something stems from it being wrong, instead of the other way around? And now we're starting the complaints about using the court to protect people's constitutional rights instead of referendums.
In before "activist judges". You know it's coming.
Haven't we dealt with these same tired arguments over and over already? I wish there were new ones...
Remember, gays are bad, mmmkay...
