Gay Marriage

I went to a get-together of gays, straights and mohos tonight and someone brought up Gay Marriage briefly as I was walking out the door. They were like "Who wouldn't want to support Gay Marriage here?"

Knowing that the audience was gay-friendly, I'm sure they never would have guessed that I almost piped up and said "Me!"

I guess I'm a little different because I don't support gay marriage. And I don't ever see myself fighting for gay rights.

Aren't people given natural rights of being a human being? Does being gay offer you more rights or the right to shove your opinions on others? Doesn't the gay Minority (and yes, despite what people think---gays are a minority of the population no matter what they say...) say that mainstream society pushes their views of traditional marriage on them?

Well, if that's the case, then isn't the minority pushing their marriage views on the majority the same thing but in reverse?

Sure, I'm attracted to guys plenty... Just as much as the next guy. Okay, so not really the NEXT guy since most men are not gay. But you know what I mean. :)

Am I getting more and more old fashioned everyday? Am I in fact turning into my parents?

If I start making quilts and complaining about how much things cost, then I'll know I am.

There are legal rights and benefits to be considered for married couples that same sex couples are denied. Check out Marriage & Living Together.

Just playing devils advocate.

Coincidently, this is a topic I've been composing a quote on which I'll be publishing in a couple of days.

I'm glad someone else out there doesn't support gay marriage. I would have said "me" too, if hadn't had to leave early.

Well, I've read plenty of pro-gay, pro-family, pro-this, anti-this, etc.

It just kind of bugs me sometimes.
