Gay Marriage- or as I call it, Marriage!

This was originally going to be my entry for the Movellas gets Political contest, but I couldn't devote the time to it that I wanted. Nevertheless, it is now here- my discussion on gay marriage.


2. What's the Harm?

So what are the consequences of gay marriage? If you believe the scaremongering right-wingers, it will be the collapse of society as we know it, with good old-fashioned family values disintegrating and the rise of pedophilia (yes, that really as an argument, one I've seen opponents of gay marriage make).

But is this really likely?

The short answer is no. Hence why I refer to the actions of gay marriage opponents as scare-mongers. If you believed everyone whose made such impassioned arguments down the years, women would not have the vote, slavery would still exist and we'd still believe the sun moved around the earth.

I've also seen the argument that gays are not interested in loving relationships, but only in sex, which is rubbish. I personally know homosexual couples and I can assure you they are together out of love, and are not the promiscuous sorts that anti-gay arguers would have you believe.

The only difference between myself and a person of homosexual persuasion is their sexual preference. That's it. Remember that people.
