I’m going to pick on
a random freeper
because he makes an argument that I’ve seen elsewhere: in response to
a question about how gay marriage might possibly affect him and his
own marriage, he writes
er it’s forcing me to explain to my kids why two men or two women are doing what they are doing.
I have to explain that nature did not intend for two of the same sex to be together and that they like to be together for perverted sexual acts
So people’s freedom to marry whomever they love should be restricted
because you don’t want to explain it to your children? Puh-leeze!
I hate to break it to you, honeycakes, but explaining the world to
children is what parents do. It’s part of the job description. Oh,
and when I say “explaining the world”, I mean the world as it is, not just as you would like it to be.
(Thanks to Fez for letting me borrow his sarcastic endearment set.)
