I was just casually scrolling through my Twitter timeline when I saw this image showing humans passionately kissing animals (including a giant insect), and a duck making out with a cow. It was retweeted by a friend who thought the image was absurd. Written on the photo are the words “Support ‘gay’ marriage? Liberalism opens the door.”
Why is it that, even now in 2015, some people are still going out of their way to associate same-sex marriage with ridiculous things such as bestiality and marriage to appliances? The most common “reasoning” I’ve heard is that the legalization of marriage between two men or two women would pave the way to other “out of the norm” activities such as the aforementioned things above. They’re comparing apples to (rotten) oranges.
I created the table below to help you if you’re confused as to which marriage is okay and which is not.
Notice how this is not a matter of religion or political affiliation, but rather a matter of logic. Allowing same-sex couples to marry won’t magically give non-humans the right to do so.
Don’t be ridiculous.
