Q&A: What does gay marriage have to do with marrying farm animals, polygamy or child marriages?

Question by Ted N: What does gay marriage have to do with marrying farm animals, polygamy or child marriages?
Gay marriage: one consenting adult consents to marry another consenting adult.

Polygamy: automatic inequality as one man enjoys the favors of multiple wives while the wives only have one husband to take care of them. Unequal, so it's illegal.

Bestiality/marrying farm animals: an animal doesn't have the ability to consent to marriage, therefore we can't marry animals. If the animal could understand the concept of marriage and sign a marriage certificate and organize a wedding, the law would probably be under consideration.

Child marriage: children are not adults, they do not have the thinking abilities of adults, therefore they are not allowed to engage in an activity that requires a high level of maturity.

Now, please tell me why so many of you reactionaries feel the need to bring up bestiality, polygamy and child marriage once gay marriage is brought up? I see this all the time and it just shows a lack of analytical abilities.
Incest is illegal because....(c'mon you guys are smart enough to know why, it has to do with that demographic you're always trying to protect)....why should that law be lifted b/c two siblings have the privilege of being the same sex? Also, why do you care? You believe God hates "sodomites" and will punish them for all eternity, so in your eyes it isn't even a marriage ---they're going to hell any way in your opinion, right? Gays go about their business every day, my life will be no different tomorrow if the two men down my street have a certificate from a judge saying that they are married. If we are not supposed to be concerned about our neighbour's health care, then why should we care about a piece of paper?

Don't get these insipid bigots started.

As you can see, their arguments make no sense. I often wonder how they manage to tie their shoes with the absence of any functioning gray matter.

"Homosexuals were also considered mentally ill and criminal until they weren't" Spoken like a true imbecile.

"There is no gay marriage, it cannot be" That's like saying the Sun doesn't exist.

    Should two adult brothers be allowed to marry?

    Should a man be able to marry his adult daughter?

    If not why not?

    Try using logic please.

  2. Confused Guy

    because they think it is all the same because gay marriage goes against the bible
    polygamy should be legal though if they dont want to be inequal don’t marry they are adults they can choose for them selves

  3. Demsmierda

    Because they are ALL Abnormal.

    ALL are against Nature.

    Your whole life probably revolves around you getting to marry your boyfriend.

    I don’t care if you marry your gay partner —- just leave the little kids alone, eh?

    Polygamy and incest can be consenting adults. You’ve just made up your own facts. Perversion is perversion. Period. But you know that.

  5. Ghost of Zeuz

    Great question. If gay marriage is a “right”, then it is an individual “right”. That means a person has the right to marry any other consenting adult. Consequently, why wouldn’t three individuals have the “right” to consent to marrying one another? In other words, why is “marriage” a union of exactly 2 people? If you can’t explain why, then the argument supporting gay marriage is the same argument that can support polygamy. It can also support incest.

    If you are CHANGING THE DEFINITION. Where does it end? It doesn’t.

    There is no gay marriage, it cannot be. Socialist judges cannot make it so, it is not within their power. There can be gay unions of sorts, but it is not and never will be marriage. Marriage is between a man and a woman.

    Incest marriage fits into the description of one adult consenting to another adult. And since reproduction has been shown not to matter in the Gay marriage debate, the only counter argument against incest marriage has already been struck down.
    Siblings could also just get sterilized if they’re hetero.

    And by the way, you used a sexist argument to argue against polygamy, no matter how many of them consent. Polygamists could also have 2 men and 2 women

    50 years ago, when we made interracial marriage legal, nobody would have thought gays would be able to marry, and even the liberals were against it. Now, you foolishly apply your false logic and say you would never make polygamy or incest legal.

    Two out of three ain’t bad:

    You are correct with children and animals. Neither have a legal right to enter into a contract, which in a legal sense is what marriage is. No argument on those points.

    Polygamy: If the multiple wives are happy with the arrangement, why is it up to the state to decide whether it is equal or not? In fact, who is it to say that it has to be a husband and multiple wives? Why not two men and three women? If marriage is a contract, then what makes the number “two” special? More than two people enter into contracts every day.

    Funny most of us always wondered what gays had to do with marriage.

    You do understand it is a perversion no matter what any judge ruled. It is unnatural for a man to be used as a woman.
    Homosexuals were also considered mentally ill and criminal until they weren’t. When you start accepting one perversion you will then be pushed to accept more because all of the perverts will want special rights just like the homosexuals.

    Look. You really, truly cannot enter into an actual conversation with the foaming, lowest common denominator fanatic cons here. Making a point is not only not appreciated, they are not capable of rational or logical thought. They respond to light and sound and images, and respond angrily. Think in those terms when speaking with them. So you can say for instance…
    You: “gay marriage good!”
    Cons: “No! Argh! Bad! Kill! I’m actually gay! Argh! Inside voice! Kill!”

    and so on.

  12. Red Rooster

    Because it is known that for some things permitted get out of hand and totally out of control!

  13. Summer

    I don’t get it either. I don’t even understand the religious aspect of anti- gay marriage. I’m agnostic but, if there is a God and he hates homosexuals so much then let him deal with it when they die. I’m sure God doesn’t appreciate people advocating for him lol.

  14. SERENAZ

    Of course it doesn’t have anything to do with all that … or with incest etc etc … but that won’t stop those who are first to jump in and judge others and take away their freedoms under the guise that the ‘bible’ says so … !

    Marriage is between a man and a woman. A lot of people talk about how gay people will work wonders in this society but I don’t think so because no

    society is perfect not even the heterosexual society so the gay marriage society won’t be much different, there will still be problems in the family, ok,
    Just like the hetero society. These people are motivated by there feelings and you can’t do that, you must control yourself. Ex: So if I have a feeling to

    have sex with a cat or chicken or a baby I’m I going to do it, NO!!! so gay people have to stop living in sin and do what is right that is why many are

    confused at times or hate the world cause they are going beyond nature and are going too far already.
    It’s not about break tradition, it’s about what is right and wrong! A lot of gay people try to make logical what they are saying but in the end they really

    don’t make any sense in the underlying of it. They will said things like it’s the bird or that God isn’t real and they do not want to live by rules of God

    they are so out there that they cannot go back to the basics of life. I guess if God is not real then we should forget about the 6th commandment of “thou

    shall not kill” and so a person would just go out and go around killing people, since God is not real so his commendments are not real, wrong!!! disobeying

    all the commendments, and go stealing and do adultery since God is not real. lawlessmess then right, wrong!!! God gives us choice so make the right one not

    the wrong one: killing, stealing, homosexuality. In all, Gay people try to influence people to say it is right, yet they give you all the non-sense in the

    world to try to convince you it’s right, when in fact there reasons are all smoke, fumes and mirrors.

    First of all I want to say I do not hate Gay people we are all God’s children I just think they are acting on the wrong feelings:

    NO! Marriage is between a man and a woman. A lot of people talk about how gay people will work wonders in this society but I don’t think so because no

    society is perfect not even the heterosexual society so the gay marriage society won’t be much different, there will still be problems in the family, ok,
    Just like the hetero society. These people are motivated by there feelings and you can’t do that, you must control yourself. Ex: So if I have a feeling to

    It’s not about breaking tradition, it’s about what is right and wrong! A lot of gay people try to make logical what they are saying but in the end they

    really don’t make any sense in the underlying of it. They will said things like it’s the bird or that God isn’t real and they do not want to live by rules

    of God they are so out there that they cannot go back to the basics of life. I guess if God is not real then we should forget about the 6th commandment of

    is my opinion.

    Excellent points – you’ll appreciate this:

    10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage is Wrong

    01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

    02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

    03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

    04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

    05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

    06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

    07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

    08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

    09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

    10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.
