The Best Gay Rights Video You’ll See Today

The Best Gay Rights Video You’ll See Today

Hey you! Yeah, you. Stop what you’re doing right now and watch this video. The speech this video documents was evidently given back in August, but has only recently blown up in a big way. Remember, watch the video all the way through. It’s easy to conflate Christians and anti-gay bigots. Now, that’s just a little bit more difficult to do.

Bigots PWNED.

No Henry, no one with an ounce of sex has ever brought up the idea of marriage between humans and animals. It is not even concievable. Animals are not humans, do not have civil rights like humans, and cannot enter into legal contracts (such as marriage) like humans.

The whole marrying animals thing is a hateful construct developed by bigots and homophobes to try and deny homosexuals their civil rights and to keep bringing it up is to attempt to spread bigotry. It is a non-issue designed by hate-mongers. So I recommend you stop trying to sell it as a viable idea. Because it is an idea developed, manufactured, and repeated only by bigots.

I am not trying to be hateful or a bigot. I have friends and family who are homosexuals. But in order to expand marriage to account for a sexual orientation that is not heterosexual, it can only be fair if all sexualities are taken into account. Otherwise, there will be activists demanding marriage for more than two individuals. And yes, there will be people who demand for marriage between humans and animals. I hope I am not a bigot by simply pointing out a fact. There are people like that who exist.

Henry K. I am going to take a moment with you and give you the benefit of the doubt that you have merely a young mind and not a bigoted one.

"Traditional" marriage used to be polygamy, with one man having many wives (just look at the Old Testament). We evolved from that "traditional" misogynistic practice.

Until well into the 19th century "traditional" marriage meant that the woman became the "property" of her husband. We evolved from that "traditional" misogynistic practice.

Through most of the 20th century "traditional" marriage was only between people of the same race and it was illegal for whites to marry blacks (or other minorities) and vice versa. We evolved from that "traditional" racist practice.

The US Supreme Court has held that marriage between two people is a civil right. It is a civil right that we generally deny homosexuals for no reason other than bigotry.

The ONLY individuals who repeat the stupid "well you could marry animals" argument are bigots. Please do not embrace the talking points of bigots. You are young enough to expand beyond the limited and hateful thinking of bigots or you can become one, it is your choice.

To all C2 members, I would be very cautious discussing sexuality/sodomy/bestiality with Henry K, as he is a MINOR.

For years, Homosexual intercourse has been considered wrong, disgusting, and immoral. Now homosexuality has become so culturally accepted that many are proposing for certain rights including gay and lesbian marriage. In a sense, they are attempting to completely redefine marriage. If marriage can be redefined once to include gays and lesbians, who's to say it can't be redefined again. There are many other sexualities that are still shunned by society ("bestiallity", transgenderism, and polygamy). Any legislation that redefines marriage would have to include all of these other sexualities in order to be fair. So technically, you could have polygamist-trangender marriages and human-animal marriages and so forth. otherwise, a new marriage law would still be discriminating against certain sexualities.

I'm sorry for the typo "non-penile-vaginal intercourse" is what I meant to say.

9:05AM PDT on Oct 31, 2012

Henry K.- Why do you insist upon bringing up the issue of the sexual molestation of animals in a discussion dealing with gay rights?

You are correct that sometimes the term sodomy has been used to also describe sex with animals although that is not the definition of it in U.S. law. Sodomy is not-penile-vaginal intercourse between two people (including oral and anal sex); bestiality is sexual contact between a human and an animal.

Now that we have once again dealt with that question, why do you want to bring the sexual molestation of animals into a discussion of gay rights? I would like an answer to that question.

7:55AM PDT on Oct 31, 2012

Sodomy can also be used to describe sex between a human and an animal. Look it up.

7:13AM PDT on Oct 31, 2012

Henry K, if you want to have a open-minded discussion you first have to know what you are talking about, not act ignorant. Why should anyone read and respond to your point of view when you don't even know what "sodomy" means?? If you did you wouldn't talk about animals, you would know that it IS legal, and that plenty of HETEROSEXUAL people practice it.

Thanks for flagging and deleting my "controversial" comments. So much for being open-minded. Good luck having an thoughtful discussion in a forum that only welcomes liberal points of view. I'm sure you all feel so good by constantly agreeing with each other on everything. Perhaps that is why some of you are so mistaken. You're only listening to one point of view, not even reading and addressing alternative points of view. Just watch, this comment will also be deleted.
