Why is it that gays/lesbians are not allowed to marry? Who made up that rule in the first place? To me, it's up there with some of the stupidest laws ever made, if not the stupidest one. There are commercials about Proposition 8, the one that will legalize gay marriage, that go against the proposal. The one I watched was of a girl coming home from school with a book called 'The Prince and The Prince' or something, and the mother getting extremely angry/worried. People who actually go against gay marriage are the worst kind of people. Sure, there's the ones like Jefree Starr, Chris Crocker, or Perez Hilton, the really weird and openly gay people. But then there's everyone else. Like, for example, FTG. Say Stal and his chica left each other. FTG made a move on Stal, and with him being in such a state of depression, they hooked up. After months of tasting California Chardonnay, long walks on the beach, watching sunsets, going to movies, going shopping, and whatever else they might be up to (scissoring?), Stal might want to propose. 'Oh wait.. You don't live in California or Massachusetts. Sorry about that,' says the government. 'Yeah, and also, you guys aren't allowed to show any affection to each other at a public setting, i.e. sports game, restaurant, movie. It sets a bad example for our children.' Wait a minute. Bad example??? Dads go looking at porn and leave the sites open for children to see. Kids are getting opened up to things like GTA, bad music, etc. that glamorize prostitution, drug dealing, and unlawful gun use, among other things. Any famous celebrity that could be a role model for kids anywhere is dressing too scantily, taking too many drugs, or doing something stupid that gets them killed. And you're telling me that Stal and FTG can't touch each in the back of a movie theater, much less get married??? What kind of country is this? Why is the whole world afraid of gays? I read an article in the Seattle Times a few months ago, talking about two lesbians that were thrown out of a Seattle Mariners game because they kissed in front of a mother and her child. The mother called security to 'protect' her daughter, and the lesbians were escorted out of the game immediately. That's just one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Why does this happen? Why are gays so 'scary' in the eyes of the straight world? To finish things off, Stal and FTG, I only used you two as an example because I can't find a better gay couple here on the forums. And finally.. Sorry for the long post. Discuss everything.
