    This is too funny.

    Check out this article in the Seattle Times:



    Here's a snippet:

    "...A group of gay-marriage supporters could begin collecting signatures today for a November ballot initiative that would limit marriage in Washington to couples willing and able to have children.

    The measure would also dissolve the union of those who remain childless three years after marrying..."

    At the very least, this could garner attention that might shut up the sanctamonius religious right that use "procreation is God's plan" argument to oppose same sex marriage.

    After recent dealings with the IRS and health insurers I am now categorically against the government acknowledging anything but soverign individuals. That is the only fair way to go. Whatever realtionships people want to form should be there own private business not the governments, employers or insurance companies.

    Well, the tactic is almost independent of the issue of gay marriage or government sanction of relationships. It's meant to point out the hypocrisy inherent in the position that only heterosexuals should marry since the only purpose of marriage is to produce kids.

    Of course, the intent of the signature gatherers is not to take a potshot at straight couples who don't or have kids. It's meant to expose the lunacy and hypocrisy who use procreation as a basis for defining what is a marriage.

    Well I for one would LOVE to support that bill. In a world where heterosexuals are trying to deny us simple rights and happiness, what then, when their fundamental 'rights' that they so obviously take for granted then become threatened?

    It'll force people to wake up and see the struggle we've been fighting for so long. This isn't a bill to create prejudice, it's a bill to stir up confrontations from within. Every person will finally start to realize no human has the right to tell another human how they should live their lives.
