Gay marriage - the 'facts'

Ten reasons why gay marriage is WRONG / RIGHT, take a look...

01) Being gay is not natural. Real South Africans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) 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 contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) *NB* Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

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

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Interesting satire, Donna --- I suspect many readers will plough through this one very very seriously, wihout recognizing that it IS a satire !
Who was the comedian who admitted that HIS objection to legalizing gay mariages was that he'd have to buy so many more wedding presents ?

It's the right to chose more than anything. To have options that others have :)

Lady Nina,
You comment is negative with no frail of hope for any kind of relationship.

if it has a 66% chance of failure, why not fight for the 34% that can be succesful!?

hi there

1 out of 3 marriage ends in divorce and 1 of the remaining 2 are unhappy - i never could understand why they fight for something that has a 66 % failure rate
