There are a number of reasons why the “procreation” argument against same-sex marriage bugs the crap out of me. Obviously, one major reason is because it’s completely illogical and incredibly inconsistent.
But that’s not the main reason it pisses me off. The number one reason why the procreation argument makes me just crazy-mad is because it’s a cop-out. It’s nothing more than a way for people who hate and fear homosexuals to argue against anything that could give them happiness or benefits, without actually saying that they hate and fear homosexuality. Oh no, it’s not about hate and fear, they say. It’s about the children. So, you see, it’s a noble cause that they pursue. They just want what’s best for the children. For da cute widdle babies. Really, it’s just an unfortunate coincidence that it happens to deny happiness to a certain misguided demographic.
So please don’t give me that “traditional marriage” argument or the “procreation” argument or the “family values” argument. If you’re against same-sex marriage, please have the balls to say that you’re against it because you’re full of hate and fear.
