I don’t get it. You (as a rational human being) abhor the idea and stupidities of marriage, but you applaud New York for passing laws that condone same-sex marriage. Why? Marriage isn’t some great, sacrosanct union. Civil unions based on love, respect and mutual admiration (not to mention sexual interest) are to be cherished. A business contract overwhelmingly consumed by religious idiocies with some legal implications (e.g. marriage) isn’t. So why support the new NY legislature?
And who gives a fuck what you or I think of marriage? Our personal opinions don’t deserve to be enshrined in legislation. Only assholes think like that.
