I sometimes want to ask those who support stupid propositions why I matter so much to them? Why does my existence as a loving person, who happens to love another person, of the same gender, matter so much to you? So, let's take away the people who proposed this proposition and talk to the people who were convinced by them to vote for this proposition: since when did anyone marrying another person, hetero or homo, change you obviously empty life?
I don't understand why there are people out there who think it matters so much that two people of the same gender marry. Seriously? I mean, seriously? I don't care if they are in love. I don't care if they are doing it for the tax break. I don't care if they are doing it for the green card. I don't care if they are just doing it for shits and giggles. Because we all know that hetero couples never marry for any of those reasons. Why, am I such a matter to your existence?
Is it because you are scared that me marrying my partner is going to take away your hard earned money? Try talking the the outgoing president about that. Is it because we may cause your marriage to break up? Try looking in the mirror for that reason. Is it because two women marrying each other is going to cause frogs to rain from the skies? Try watching the news sometime (and try reading another book). Is it because you value human beings so little that you would relegate them to being second-class citizens? Let me guess: you're pro-life as well.
So, why do I matter that much that you won't let me marry anyone I want? I don't want to marry a chicken. Or my cat. Or a pencil. Only uneducated, small-minded people think that way. Which I am willing to go out on a limb and assume that you are neither uneducated or small-minded. Are you? Because I can't fathom any reason why you would vote to deny me a silly, simple, yet basic right, to marry the person who I want to spend the rest of my life with. But would gladly vote to prevent a chicken or my cat from being treated with less dignity than you give me. Just wondering? Later.
