I am by no means a politics guru. I rarely read political news - I get my major-events-that-are-happening feed from Twitter. But I become interested every once in a while in topics concerning government's involvement in civil liberties. Today Supreme Court is hearing arguments on California's Prop 8 (ban of same-sex marriage). Thus this post.
I believe same-sex marriage should be legal because:
- We are all aware a lot of federal/state legislation do include words that regard marital status, something completely personal (among many many other things) that shouldn't have anything to do with the government.
- If the government is involved in some of us's personal relationships (marriage, in this case), and we know that our government's involvement isn't going away any time soon, then it is only reasonable to let these legislation extend to all of those who want to have government in their personal relationships.
- What is your belief based upon? Some wild interpretations? Archaic thoughts from a bunch of archaic people who know so much less than we do in the 21st century (you can't blame them then!)? Then, see post banner.
- If they are just homophobic, then, see post banner.
- Or maybe they are OK with same-sex relationships, but they think same-sex couples shouldn't be able to get married. This leads to my third point/question: why is marriage regulated by the government again?!
Sadly government is like, MUST COCKBLOCK!
*Red for marriage equality. If straight people get to suffer, why not sharing the fun?
