Klipspringer:ajobbins:Klipspringer: So you happy that gay brothers can get married but not heterosexual brothers and sisters.
Hang on... Slippery slope approaching...
If what you are saying is that the biological reason preventing a brother and sister for marrying doesn't apply to two brothers, then you are right.
HOWEVER. This is not what we are taking about changing the law to accommodate now. If and when that ever was on the table, you can debate the merits of that then.
Until that time, it's just a slippery slope argument - which as we should all know by now is a logical fallacy and is an invalid argument.
This is all about the right for 2 people who "love" each other to marry? Right?
If so then what has sex got to do with it?
You implying that marriage should not be allowed because of sex. Thats 2 different things.
By your statement I can only presume that you would be happy that a brother and sister get married just as long as they don't have sex? Or there was some way of insuring it would not happen?
This needs to be debated.
Hang on... Slippery slope number 2 approaching...
I'm sorry, but the more you say the less respect I seem to have for you. This is not meant as a personal attack, it's just how you are making me feel.
I look back on how I used to be (a little like yourself) and I'm embarrassed. Now my best friend is a lesbian, in fact she was the best man at my hetro wedding, and I was hers at her civil "marriage" union. I am welcomed by all her friends who are all awesome people who are all just struggling for acceptance from people like you.
And you wonder why the suicide rate is so high, It's because walking down the street people stare and some make rude comments. The suicide is NOT because of who they are, but how they are treated in this world by others.
