It's a tag many people will use as a friendly heads- up to people that they might not want to click this link or watch this video if they're at work.

I always read it as New South Fucking Wales, but that's probably just me.

Ah, okay. Thanks .

I was for some reason thinking "Not So Far Wrong". I don't know why.

Ever notice that the society has a greater issue with a gay couple raising children than a lesbian couple?

Says alot about our perception of homosexuality and our tolerance.

Doesn't society generally favor granting children to the mother in a divorce case?
Isn't society generally more accepting of single mothers over single fathers?
Aren't the majority of nannies, au pairs, school teachers and babysitters females?

And you would have a problem that your daughter 3rd grade teacher is a man?

..(but that's a whole other can of worms to open.This being a same sex marriage thread.)

But coming to the same sex couple with children.Being oppose for gay couples to raise kids but accepting lesbian couples to do so,it feels that that point of view is trying to be "half pregnant"

...Which means,you can't.

I'm guessing part of that has to do with the fact that women can still reproduce, so as long as they can still "fulfill the duties of mankind", anti-gay marriage people are willing to look the other way. Men...not really an option there.

And, this doesn't have to do with raising children, but there's also the belief that two girls in a relationship is generally seen as "hot" (unless they're "butch"), whereas with guys, it's more disgusting to a lot of people. Why, I don't know. So I guess once you accept the couple, maybe seeing them do anything else-raise kids, live together, get married, whatever-is easier for people to deal with.

Fur better or worse: Postman Uwe Mitzscherlich marries his cat
news.com.au

Quote:
A German postman has "married" his obese and asthmatic cat, saying he wanted to tie the knot before his pet died.

"Cecilia is such a trusting creature. We cuddle all the time, and she has always slept in my bed," Uwe Mitzscherlich, 39, told Bild newspaper.

"Our hearts beat as one - it's unique!"

Because marrying an animal is illegal, Mr Mitzscherlich paid €300 ($428) for a television actress to play officiator in the ceremony. His twin brother, Erik, served as witness.

Actress Christin-Maria Lohri, who officiated the ceremony, was quoted as saying: "At first I thought it was a joke. But for Mr Mitzscherlich it's a dream come true."
Just thought I'd pass on this dispatch from the slippery slope.

And that slippery slope is flat out stupid. That's just one of those every once in a while crazy, lonely guy (or girl) stories. I'd be willing to make a very safe bet that 99.999999999% of the people in the world have absolutely zero desire to marry cats. Or dogs. Or horses. Or lamps. Or whatever the hell else people who spin out that insane "slippery slope" argument throw out there (not to mention, from what I recall in my studies in school, the "slippery slope" argument is not advised as a worthwhile debate tactic, so anyone using that might want to brush up on their debating skills).

That, and in most places this wouldn't be considered valid anyway, 'cause you kinda have to have a thing called consent going on between both parties. Animal species can't exactly do that, so those "marriages" are really null and void to begin with. I'm pretty sure that isn't going to be recognized as a truly legal marriage, and if it is, well, I don't know what to tell you other than that particular area is very strange.

and where do these (almost nonexistent) people say that they have been emboldened, or inspired, by gay people?

(nowhere)

In case you didn't read or weren't able to comprehend the text you posted. And it's a heterosexual marriage, since the cat is female. So I'm afraid this slippery slope you are somehow imagining starts a bit earlier than you want to acknowledge.

Words can't express how much I love this part of your post

What about the straight woman who wanted to marry the Berlin Wall and all of those other kinds of relationships-we had a thread about it here. And what about straight guys who are sexually turned on watching a woman gorge herself with food and pay money to watch that online? Zero to do with gay marriage but I'll just pull them out of my (ass) hat.

A guy marrying his cat has zero to do with two people who are gay who love each other and want to get married.

...way to point that out, Vincent Vega.

Yeah, come to think of it, it does seem usually when you hear these stories the human and the animal are of opposite sexes, not the same sex, so.... Wonder what that means ?
