Gay marriage

I suppose I should say a few words about gay marriage, since I have a blog and everyone else has already said something.

The topic came up because North Carolina became the latest state to constitutionally prohibit gay marriage.

It’s going to be pretty entertaining in a few years when lots of gay people are married in all these states in which gay marriage is "constitutionally" barred. After all, it’s increasingly clear that the Constitution allows gay marriage. Lots of people think the Civil War was fought to free the slaves, but it was really fought so that women could abort their children and dudes could get married to other dudes.

I propose that those of us on the reactionary right make a deal with the homos now. We will support their "right" to get married if they’ll give up status as a "victims" group.

I have no problems with gay people – I lived in one of the top 15 gayest zip codes according to this list. I have friends that are gay, but I should be able to make fun of them (and I do) without being sued by leftist "victims" groups. They’re free to make fun of me as well. Let’s just be grown-ups about it.

    lol, with “reactionaries” like you, who needs leftists.

    Foseti,
    Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. Either being gay is illegal or it’s illegal to criticize gay people for more or less any reason. Those are the only two states that are stable given the temperment of the US population.

    • Foseti says:

      Yeah, I think you’re right.

      Frankly, I have no problem with gay people getting married, but I would never say that I support gay marriage because I don’t want to do anything to further legitimize another privileged group.

    • AC says:

      Can you explain your reasoning further? It doesn’t seem to apply to, say, horseback riders, or Asians. Isn’t Foseti’s point to try to avoid “gay” being a weaponized minority group?

      • Jehu says:

        AC,
        Asians and horseback riders aren’t connecting themselves to the central trunk of the Cathedral tree—-civil rights. Because gays are, they have to be fought. You’ve already seen the result where they are classed as a protected group—people get sued for criticizing them, wedding photographers get sued for refusing to cover their events, etc. So gay is already a weaponized minority group, whether we like that or not.

    Don’t conflate “having a problem with gay dudes” with a totalitarian party mandating that red and yellow are actually the same color because they only exist in our minds.

    And on the particular issue of marriage, I suggest you do some homework. Even from your semi-utilitarian POV, the consequences could be unfathomable disastrous. Have you read Sailer’s cousin marriage articles?

    Uh, what is going on with/in Clear, Alaska? 20% gay. This does not compute.

  5. z says:

    I find it amusing that Simon attacks you with snark the way a leftist would.

  6. samstarrett says:

    I don’t see how there can be anything positive to say about granting the blessing of the civil power to sinful and unnatural unions.

  7. spandrell says:

    We’re supposed the ones who don’t yield to leftist evil. Homos don’t need our support.

  8. Allan says:

    It is puzzling to see our reactionary
    bowing before political conformism
    to use that ultimate Orwellian word:
    ‘gay’.

  9. Erik says:

    In retrospect, morbidly amusing that the proposed deal appears to be underway anyway, with proglodytes eating their own and needing new special snowflakes.
