Gay marriage: the most pointless thing to protest against, yet still one of the biggest topics in today's society. Being a lesbian myself, I knew I had to fight for my right to be married when I decided to one day. But lately I've been thinking long and hard about it, and I realized that I can't see the point in fighting for it.
I'm starting to think maybe we should let the baby have its bottle and just throw up our hands and say, "You can have it; we don't want it!" Honestly, what does this whole lack of marriage thing do to us? I can't think of a single thing, other than piss us off because as humans we definitely do deserve all our rights.
But they're not really taking anything away from it, if you think about it.
First off, does being married (I'm directing these questions toward everyone: gay, straight, people who love animals a little too much, etc.) change how you feel about your partner? Let's dissect marriage a little bit. In the end, what is it? A big ceremony with all your friends and families to celebrate the unity of souls? A piece of glue that will make it so you never fall out of love? No.
Marriage is simply a piece of paper and some pain-in-the-ass legal documentation. We are breaking our hearts and souls to protest and fight for... a piece of paper. A. Piece. Of. Paper.
This means nothing to me. When I fall in love, I'm going to get married because a stupid piece of paper is not going to stop me. I'm going to have a huge ceremony in front of my whole family and friends and I'm going to profess my undying love for the woman I plan to finally settle down and spend the rest of my life with.
We'll have many children and a big house, etc. You get where I'm going with this. My point is, you want to really say Eff you to all those homophobes out there? Drop your picket signs and do it anyway. Stop asking for our rights back and just take them!
