Why I Oppose Straight Marriage [by SerenaDante]

  • Marriage should be between two people of the same sex. Who says? Well, I do—duh. I’m an expert at defining words, and marriage means “an institution between two women or two men.” It has nothing to do with my religion, either, it just has to do with my head…I have a mental dictionary, you know!
  • Straight couples are awful at raising children. Look around. It’s obvious. You see straight couples raising children who end up being criminals ALL the time. And–this is the worst thing of all—straight couples even turn their children straight! *shudder*
  • Straight relationships are so immoral. You know, I have this really old book that was written by a bunch of weirdo people, and it says that straight relationships are wrong. Obviously, I don’t need to think for myself—this book tells me everything I need to know about the world! It definitely has to be 100% right, so that’s why straight relationships, including marriage, are not appropriate in our society.
  • Straight people overpopulate the planet. And that’s horrible. We shouldn’t have even morechildren being put into adoption centers, or being left out on the street, or being allowed to starve to death. Not anymore! Actions must be taken against this constant procreation and mindless encouragement of human reproduction by straights.
  • If straight people are allowed to marry, then we’ll be seeing marriages between animals and humans soon enough too! It’s a fact, especially since animals are able to give their consent to marry, and they can even sign the piece of paper too. (Actually, this is why we should never have let white people get married—now the straights are using that as an excuse to be allowed to as well! So wrong…)
  • Straight sex is disgusting. I would never have straight sex, and neither should you. We should stop all penis-in-vagina sex right now! It spreads so many STDs, every single day! Not to mention that penis-in-vagina sex can really hurt people if they’re not careful about it—one of my straight friends (yeah, I have straight friends) told me how he accidentally made a girl bleed because he wasn’t paying attention to where he was putting things, and he was going way too fast. So for their own good, we need to forbid it.
  • Being straight is obviously unnatural. Oh wait…but animals in nature are straight pretty often. Oops…umm…well…uh, you know what, we’re not animals! Definitely not, we have nothing in common with other mammals. So that means we should know better than to do the things that animals do.
  • If I let people get a straight marriage, then my marriage won’t mean anything anymore. Because straights will try their hardest to break up my marriage once they have theirs, because they’re out to get me, not equal rights. And anyway, my spouse will want to divorce me and get a straight marriage too. After all, she doesn’t actually love me or anything like that, she’s just married to me because I was the only person available at the time.

So, ladies and gentlemen, this is why we shouldn’t allow straight marriage—it’s a vice!

(P.S. By the way, I’m not a heterophobic bigot for opposing heterosexual marriage. It’s not like I hate straights—I even told you guys I have a straight friend. I just hate straightness! And I’m not doing anything wrong by trying to deny people equal rights on account of who they are either. Nope. So don’t call me anything mean, like intolerant or prejudiced or anything like that, because I’m not! It’s just my opinion.)

Day 28: Write a letter to someone. It can be a coming out letter or a letter regarding how you hate their homophobia or whatnot. You don’t have to send it.

Dear Manager Who Believes in Sasquatch:

I get that you think “gay” is a funny word to use when you want to jokingly insult your friends. I get that you think our gay store manager would be down with that. I’m telling you, as a queer myself and as a gay supporter, I find it offensive. A) Why would you even say something like that in a work environment when you’re surrounded by a bunch of people you only know superficially? What if some of us aren’t heterosexual and you don’t know it? SUCH IS THE CASE. B) What right do you have to make a person’s sexual orientation the punchline of your stupid jokes? I get the impression that if you heard some of us standing around taking swings at your Christianity, you’d be offended. You’d take that personally. It’s a part of who you are, part of your identity as a human being. SO IS WHO YOU LOVE.

I’m not campaigning to change your personal opinion. That would take more time than I have, and probably, for you, only God can do that. If you gain a bigger perception of what God means. Right now what I’m interested in is how you’re treating the queers around you, directly and indirectly. The people around you. I feel like, as a manager, it’s partly your responsibility to ensure that we have a workplace where every employee feels welcome to work. That’s currently not happening.

Working graciously with you but not afraid to stand up to you,

The Girl on Make Line.

*This is IRL. I mean. Tonight I told him his use of “gay” offends me. Next time (because there will be a next time), I’m calling him the fuck out.

  • SASSY GAY FRIEND. SASSYGAYFRIENDSASSYGAYFRIENDSASSYGAYFRIEND. I want him to live next door to me.

I’m not totally convinced those count as jokes, but they sure as shooting make me laugh.

Day 25: The LGBT slur you hate most or if you’ve taken back a slur and used it as a definition, ie queer or fag

Well, I use “queer” in a positive way when speaking inclusively of the entire non-heterosexual community. LGBT is a nice start, but what about pan-, demi-, and asexuals? What about genderqueer people who can’t identify with any of those labels? What about all the circumstances I can’t even think of at the moment? There’s such a huge variety of people represented in this catch-all label, I don’t think initials completely work unless you’re prepared to write out the entire alphabet every time you bring the subject up.

“Fag” and “homo” offend me to no end, though. I don’t usually launch into tirades about it though..I prefer to reject peoples’ attempts at slurs outright. Anytime someone uses any of these words in a derogatory way when conversing with me [e.g. “Ummm, okay, Adam Lambert is a FAG. I am NOT a fag. Therefore, we are not going to listen to Adam Lambert” <there’s logic for you!] I gush like they’ve just dished out the biggest compliment [e.g. “I knoooow, isn’t he fabulous? He’s got better eye makeup than any girl I’ve ever seen!”] and watch them dissolve into confusion. Kinda fun, actually.

Oh, and with regards to asexuality, I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a slur, but when people call you “broken,” it makes you want to punch them in the face.

Day 24: The stupidest argument/comment you’ve heard about gay people or an LGBT issue

How to pick just one?! Okay, if I had to narrow it down to a top three, I’d say:

  • Gay parents will churn out gay children.
  • Gay marriage will destroy the family, the country, and the world.
  • Tradition.

EDIT: I wrote this post before the work night when we all had this huge political argument, and now have a few additions:

  • Tab A, Slot B.

THIS from a straight guy who says he’s pro-choice and he doesn’t care what people do in the bedroom.

  • It’s a choice.

THIS from a straight guy who said yes, he chose to be straight, and his choice deserves legal rights whereas other choices don’t.

  • It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

THIS from a straight girl who denied being religious and claimed to be glad that the US isn’t a theocracy.

I work with a bunch of nincompoops!
