AZ Proposition 102

Monday, 29 September 2008 at 11:10 am Pacific USA Time.

With the election coming up soon, there are lots of commercials about voting for or against propositions. Prop 102 is, to cut to the chase, an anti-gay-marriage proposition.

I am listening to these commercials and reading what was submitted about this proposition, and there is one thing that is really odd.

Based on how these people are phrasing things, they are against MY marriage.

Over and over, these people are writing that marriage is about a father, mother, and children. A man and woman coming together to have a family. Guess what. I don’t have kids and I don’t want kids. Evidently, these people are against my marriage.

What’s more than that is their really bizarre logic. According to what they filed, you will ONLY get holidays with grandma and grandpa if there is no gay marriage. So if we don’t let gay people get married, grandma and grandpa can be whole again?

What about divorce? 50% of marriages end in divorce. People are freaking miserable, including many NOT getting divorced. I think if somebody wants to improve marriage, they need to start by making it something people want to stay in! I think the thing that threatens male-female marriages the most are that people are choosing the wrong people and then getting divorced.

Two gay people marrying each other has NOTHING to do with me. I am not sure why anybody thinks that what two other people choose affects them. I’m not affected by my neighbour’s religion. I’m not affected by my neighbour’s income or debt. I’m not affected by whether or not my neighbours are gay. I’m not affected by what colour skin my neighbours have. Why should government step in and take rights away from people who deserve rights?

Once upon a time, people wanted to take rights away from people based on the colour of their skin or their gender. Now, we wouldn’t DREAM of trying to deny a woman the same rights everybody else has. Why are we trying to put people into labelled boxes and then find something to take away from them?

AZ already voted AGAINST a gay marriage ban in 2006, and here it is again. I hope AZ will come out and vote this down AGAIN.
