Courtesy of Lil’ P, we learn that Martin Kennedy sees nothing funny about nor even particularly wrong with a self-hating gay man passing legislation that deliberately curtails the rights of other gay people.
I will let those of you who are married without children explain to Martin how deep in bullshit he stands when he says, “Extending the benefits of marriage to those who can not procreate renders marriage an arbitrary relationship.” I, instead, ask you readers to consider the following:
Who better than Larry Craig to appreciate that allowing gays to serve openly in the military could be problematic? A gay person’s right must be balanced with concern regarding the unique mission of the military – to fight and win wars. Who better than Larry Craig to appreciate that gay marriage is not the same thing as traditional marriage? The state has a keen interest in the state of the family.
I’m sorry. I wish I had astute analysis but I’m too busy laughing. Seriously, this is ludicrous. It’s like there’s a huge fabulous pool we might call “Homosexual America” and all the folks who are in the pool are having a grand ole time, they just wish they had a diving board like the folks at the “Heterosexual America” pool. Now let’s say that, for some reason, the folks at the Heterosexual America pool are the ones in charge of doling out the diving boards and, for some reason, they refuse to give the folks at the other pool one. The folks in the pool are all “Hey, we’d really like one.” The folks in the straight pool are split, but most folks believe, for some reason that giving the gays a diving board would somehow ruin their diving board.
And who do straight people like Kennedy turn to for guidance about this? Not the vast majority of gay people who are openly in the pool and openly having a good time. No, he turns to the fucked-up dudes who are standing in the bushes, peering through the fence at the gay pool, throwing rocks at the cute boys, trying to get their attention.
That is hilarious to me.
