I Was Wrong.
And I’m man enough to admit it.
For years here I have defended the idea of gay marriage and derided it’s critics who said that it would ruin the institution of marriage for alla us straight guys. (Woof-woof-woof!) I said that line of reasoning was a stupid argument made by ignorant people who were merely repeating talking points handed down by cynical hate-mongers who knew they’d be foolish enough to buy it. But then… it happened.
Gay marriage ruined marriage for everyone.
In 2005 the Texas legislature passed an amendment to their state constitution with the intention of making it illegal for people who are different from themselves to enjoy the same rights and privileges as they have. Seems like a terrific idea on the face of it, so what could go wrong? Well, in their breathless rush to action legislators seemingly forgot to read the amendment they were passing, and signed this into law:
“This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.”
In other words, no one in Texas is married, nor has been for the past 4 years. (Marriage being more or less identical to marriage.) Clearly, if gay people hadn’t started getting married in other states, this never would have happened. It’s almost as if they think they’re as good as people! And now poor “straight Texas” is left in a “If’n I can’t have it, no one can… BOOM!” state of being… except… well… they could have marriage… before… they just can’t now…
Anyway, if those queers hadn’t gone and got so uppity the Texas legislature would never have gotten so upset that they banned marriage completely. It breaks my heart to think of all those good Christians who will ROAST IN HELL now that they are living in sin. And think of the children! The poor bastards.
The Texas Attorney General stands behind the law, and continues to defend his tragic, stupid mistake. No word yet on his own live-in arrangement with the woman he fraudulently claims is his “wife”, but I doubt it’ll last. Women like a sense of security Texas men can no longer provide.
Yes. I was so very, very wrong…
