Shame on you, California

Today, I am ashamed to be a Californian.

The California supreme court has upheld the ban on gay marriage, violating the civil rights of hundreds of thousands of people.

What is the big fucking deal?

Gay marriage will not lead to the erosion of “traditional” marriage…so-called traditional marriage has done that to itself with the country’s 50% divorce rate.

Gay marriage will not lead to pedophilia, child molestation, zoophilia, or other sexual perversion. What part of “two consenting adults” do you not understand?

Gay marriage will not infringe on the rights of employers, children, heterosexually married people, heterosexually unmarried people, animals, the environment, or taxpayers. Overturning the ban will not mark the downturn of civilization.

I understand that among some heterosexual people (and some gay people too) that there is a certain “yuck” factor when it comes to this issue. Just because you think something is yucky doesn’t mean that you should keep other people from it. I think brain surgery is yucky, but I wouldn’t try to ban it.

Gay marriage is not a religious issue, it is a civil rights issue. I have yet to hear a cohesive argument in favor of the ban that doesn’t begin with a God argument. Any god that would dissaprove of protected family units is not my god.

You people make me sick.
