"I don't really care what people do in their private lives," said 62-year-old communications consultant George Werl of Minneapolis. But he said marriage should be limited to heterosexual couples because it was designed to protect the children of those unions. (via)
What he means to say is:
"I don't really care what people do in their private lives. I really
care what people do in their private lives". It's a Rick James moment.
This amendment vote is a year away. We must all fight it. Fuck the
spin, it's homophobic, bigoted and simple minded. Marriage is a dying
arbitrary patriarchal institution anyhow, not to mention the SIBS study
has all but proven that biological relationship between parents and
children has no impact positive or negative on the child's "success" in
life (but it's OK to use a child to force a mother or father into
"calming down"/"growing up")
These are bogus issues designed to pit us against each other and ignore
the reality that we're all being screwed ... by the 1% (Thanks
adbusters for making that so succinct). If you REALLY FUCKING DON'T
CARE what people do in their private lives, [then] SHUT THE FUCK UP.
**edit: than? Idiot.
