I just found this, randomly, while doing some stupid searches on the intarwebz. There's a chance that you've read it, already, but hey. Read it again. You know you love it.


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.

Aw, I think that this list is commenting on how much society sucks, really. I'm not entirely sure how you find it annoying, though. Care to elaborate? :3 I mean that, 'cause I'm genuinely curious.

I like hearing other people's opinions, so you're definitely not bugging me. xB

Well, actually it's not this thing that annoys me, it mostly about how society is so bent on changing people who are different than them that sometimes gets out of control. I dunno. I already have a thing about how people are against same-sex marriages, so by seeing that people are sorta making a joke about it as well as giving reasons why it's so wrong is a bit annoying. But... as I said, the content is somewhat amusing to read, but the idea behind it isn't.

But I really agree, this society really sucks. They're being too much of a Nazi, as I keep saying. And gay marriages isn't the only thing that society is trying to change, it's us PGs, it's other minor societies and several other things. Society itself believes it's blasphemy that people are doing these things and want to rid of them so that they can have this... "perfect" society. That's why I refer to them as Nazis and they're hypocrites. They see something like the holocaust as something horrible. But then again, they are doing the exact same thing to the minor societies. And even so, even when society is turning for the worst, there are some societies that have made a difference even though there are still some people out there who still protest against them. Like the African-American civil rights, women's rights, slavery, and other things. They were considered just as bad back then, but things have changed because a few people took it upon themselves to say that this isn't right. And after a really long time, they succeeded in their goal. So, pretty much I'm saying that even though society now really sucks for believing that they're perfect and that there's no room for imperfection, soon or later things will change. For the better, hopefully.

...o.o;... Okay. One, society can rot for all I care... unless they DO try to improve without being Nazis... and two... I think I am talking a bit too much. So... I will STFU now. =)

Have a good day.

No, no, I completely agree. The way some people are being treated, these days, is sickening. Homosexuals, in particular, but so many others too, as you've said. Yes, the list I posted has a horrible intention behind it, but the commentary that goes with it proves it invalid.

Society, in the past, has turned for the worst. All we can do is hope that the future is full of an open-minded society, instead. I've notice that, already, people are starting to think for themselves more often. I take it as a sign of hope for us, y'know? Things will change for the better. It just takes time.

And you certainly weren't talking to much. ;3 It feels good to get things like that off your chest, I know. And our current society will definitely get you upset enough to have to rant. Again, I know. xD

I'm glad I understand what you were talking about, now. :3 Thanks.

You're welcome and glad to have clarified that for you. =B;

Let's hope you're right and that society is changing for the better. It has to. Because as a society, they, themselves, will soon or later be the cause of their own destruction if they don't shape up. But as for minorities like us, the most we can do is watch them... if we try to do something.. well, there is a chance that someone will be successful in making a change like most of the great leaders... but that is overruled by the chance that we will just be as discriminated against like everyone else, which is more than likely and will make things a lot worst than it already is. Just kinda wish society stop thinking about themselves selfishly and consider about the people who they are victimizing. Don't you agree?

I do agree that society is clearly blind if they don't see the pain they cause to some minorities. What I don't agree with is that we have no choice but to watch the story unravel. Personally, I think that if we don't do something about our situations, who will? We'll always be discriminated against, and that's nothing new, but we have to get out and prove ourselves or else society won't know us for who we are or what we're capable of, you know? Bad comes with the good, and that's that. We've just gotta learn to overcome the bad, and I know that we can. People just need to be more knowledgable about certain minorities. The minorities, themselves, need to educating them. Or continue educating them, in some cases. Society's just brainwashed, but that can be changed... and will be, I hope. =3
