I'm going to preface this post by saying that I honestly don't know why we are STILL debating this. I covered this issue in my blog previously, in this post.
In amongst the daytime TV ads for funeral insurance there are a worrying amount of ads for something called 'Marriage Alliance'.
I checked it out so you don't have to. They don't need more clicks on their website.
Basically, it's where you can go to read propaganda about how marriage equality is going to fuck shit up for straight people.
Children need a father AND mother.
So I guess if you divorce, or your spouse dies, children of straight couples are automatically ruined too?
Children will learn about homosexuality in schools
Why is this listed as a negative? Of course they should. Because it's an actual thing that exists. Oh, sorry, you want to just teach them about pretend men in the sky? Carry on then.
Children of same-sex parents won't know their biological history.
I don't even know where to start with this one. They will probably know more about their biological history than little Neaveh-Caprice Smyth who was conceived out the back of Tunnel nightclub. (Does Tunnel even exist anymore? Whatever, you get my point)
GLTB already have the same legal rights as straight couples. Why do they need to be able to actually marry?
Well, why did you, as a straight person, decide to get married? Why aren't you living in a de facto relationship yourself? There's your answer.
When I read the press release that said the Gay Lobby was using bullying tactics my head exploded and I was unable to read any further.
