metta8 saidThe Sexual Fetish of Gay Marriage Opponents
Defenders of DOMA and Proposition 8 say marriage isn’t about love or parenting. It’s about coitus.
As usual, all arguments against gay marriage are based on illogical thinking, narrow religious doctrine or an uncritical acceptance of "tradition"--none of which, in theory, should influence the courts.
This argument isn't any different. Essentially, it goes like this: heterosexual coitus is the only way children can be conceived; however, gay sex cannot do the same; therefore, gay marriage is unacceptable. However, in reality, not all heterosexual coitus leads to or can lead to children, so the premise is flawed and the conclusion nonsensical. Further, if heterosexual coitus that can result in children was of supreme importance, states would prohibit all infertile individuals from marrying, including anyone who is too old to conceive children. But, of course, no state does so and no state ever will.
So, what pathetic argument is next?
