Why I Don't Support Gay Marriage or 12 Reasons Why Gay Marriage is "Wrong"

1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control are not natural.

Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people cannot get legally married because the world needs more children.

3. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children because straight parents only raise straight children.

4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful, since Britney Spears's 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and it hasn't changed at all: women are property, Blacks can't marry Whites, and divorce is illegal.

6. Gay marriage should be decided by the people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of minorities.

7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are always imposed on the entire country. That's why we only have one religion in America.

8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people makes you tall.

9. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage license.

10. Children can never succeed without both male and female role models at home.
That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven't adapted to cars or longer lifespans.

12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "separate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Separate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as separate marriages will for gays & lesbians.

Post this if you're for Gay Marriage.

weekend of fiddles and doom Sep. 26th, 2005 @ 01:22 pm
Friday was great... It didn't have a great begining and had some really annoying stuff in the middle but I loved it in general.
I came to the office, had lunch and then went to help to the Fresher's fair where I met Sarah and by some strange circumstances we walked back home together with my flatmate Donald. Before going to the poke gig I got a must curious e-mail saying that I should be giving a talk on the 26th of October. To be honest, those are not great news but the thing that actually freaked me out wast the fact that I was volunteered to do it by "somebody". Well, "sombedody" has her office next door to mine and I actually think it is quite rude that she didn't come to tell it to me in person but she rather asked the other organizer of the meetings of the group to send me an e-mail, as I am a poor non-important student, not as "sombedoy".
Donald and a bunch of people I met that night and me went to the Poke gig which turned out to be FANTASTIC! AND REALLY GOOD FUN! and then whe had a gathering with tunes at home. Lots of folk stuff and fiddles and a couple of bodhrams (dh is not pronounced, yes I know) and booze and it was great!

Saturday we had a long conversation about laterality when having breakfast, went to town, met safetypingirl to say good-bye :( and went to the ceilidh! wheeeeeeeeeeeee unfortunately I caught a cold for being at the door , but I danced 3 songs at least!

Sunday was bizarre. Cat and Josie went to a dance festival as Donald and me tried to recover from his hangover and my cold with lots of tea and silly tv (and randomly singing minnie moosika and poke songs). And some people came to have a look at Donalds room (the last one was a weird guy, we still don't know if it was in a good or in a bad way).

Monday, supervisor doing supervisoring thingies... *sigh* I will hopefully go to Fangas tonight!

So we kind of saved the world.
It seems that the moral of the campaign was "don't be a werewolf" though I am reluctant to think so (yes, I might be crazy or maybe it is too early in the morning).

In the wyrm, in the wyrm... *goes on with the sing-a-long*

it is conferences time!
Well... they make me nervous but it could be worse. I am finally installed at my new house and I've just discovered really nice people ...
My fiddle demands a lot of attention but I am still unable to play if there is more than one person in the house (and it works all in the wrong way if that person is at the same floor/area I am). I do think me struggling to play an arpegio is something nobody should suffer...

I saw Sarah this morning when i was waiting for the bus and I finished my poster, unfortunatelly they did some mistakes at the printing services so I will have to go and complain on Thursday (during office hours so I will not miss the roleplaying session)
