    They said interracial marriage would lead to men marrying men, and we know that that would never happen.

The idea that interracial marriage could in any way open the door to same-sex marriage is a textbook Slippery-Slope indeed.








    Oh wait, that's actually happening now, never mind.

    Oh, really? Who "said" that?
    I think what they said was that interracial marriage would lead to blacks getting uppity and above their station, and would lead to more biracial children and to the degradation of the white race.

    And look, it's all happened. And it's good.

    I'll bet even the most pessimistic of them never imagined that in 40 scant years, a biracial man would be the President of the United States.
    I hope they're flailing in helpless horror in their wheelchairs right now, or else spinning in their graves.

    This is completely off topic here, but that comment interests me. I work at Macca's, and we have about 100 employees, and at least 25 of them are left handed - most females. What are the odds of that?

    Not good odds, I wouldn't think.
    But... well, there are some (not very scientific, I'm afraid) theories about lefties being more "creative" and "artsy" and "intuitive" and things like that.
    What is "Macca's", exactly? I'm not familiar with it.
    Maybe if it has something to do with art, that would explain the high concentration of lefties.

    I must say, anecdotally, that my experiences parallel yours. it seems that half the people I know, male and female, are left-handed.
    But that's not what the research says.
    I live in a very liberal city; I thought maybe that had something to do with the enormously high concentration of lefties here.

    Also, I've read that the percentage of the population that is left-handed is increasing (I don't know by how much). There are more young left-handed people than old left-handed people.
    This could be explained a number of ways:
    1. in the past, even up to the 1950s, children were systematically broken of lefthandedness at home and especially in school, because it was considered inferior and wrong, and so many older people who started out life lefthanded may have been forced to switch to righthandedness.

    and 2. Our lives today might simply demand more ambidextrousness than people's lives did in former times. We drive, we operate machinery, we type, we do things that require small motor skill in both of our hands, not just our dominant one.

    So people might actually be evolving more toward ambidextrousness and being able to write with both hands. Most people who can write with their left hand consider themselves left-handed, even if they can write equally well with their right hand.
    My husband is one of these. he swears up and down he's left-handed, but he can actually write just as well with either hand, and tends to lead with his right in other pursuits.

    I'd like to see some kind of source that says that this was one of the arguments used against interracial marriage.

    But.. you aren't really commenting on what I asked. I was wanting to see what some think will happen to the polygamists, incest, that sort of thing. Why will they not want in the door as well, and why would it be right/wrong to let them in.

    I don't have an issue with Polygamy. Polygamists can marry as many people as they want. And if the Incest is consentual betwen adults, they can do it without being married. It's a non-sequitor argument. If someone doesn't think the government should be involved in marriage, it's a universal belief.

    I don't care if 27 cousins marry each other. Why should I care?

    Since gays are not hetro why do they insist on adopting the word "marriage"? Why not make up a name for their unity and stay with it?
    Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.

    Because we already have a perfectly good word for it, what's the point in making up another one. We've had enough "separate but equal" nonsense in this country already. Further, even for those who have no problem with "civil unions", the religious asshats are out to deny them equal rights no matter what names you put on it, so it's really irrelevant.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Quite frankly, because society sees those people as freaks. They don't have the support. Jerry Springer isn't enough support.
