What If…?

What if you were told you couldn’t marry your partner because they were the same race?

What if you were told you couldn’t marry your partner because they were the same religion?

What if you were told you couldn’t marry your partner because they were the same age?

What if you were told you couldn’t marry your partner because they had the same colour hair as you?

Ridiculous, right?

What if you were told you couldn’t marry your partner because they are same sex?

Just as ridiculous!

Love comes in all shapes, sizes, religions, races and yes, sexes. What does it honest-to-God matter who you love? Tell me how it affects you, if two men, or two women, love each other and want to get married and have a family? I’m sick of the bullshit excuses like, “Because it is wrong” or “Because the Bible says so.” I’m even more sick of the terrible, asinine, offensive analogies to bestiality.

Two men loving each other affects you as much as two muslims, two blondes, two Christians, or two 28 year olds.

I thought, in 2012, we’d have long put the days behind us of anyone being treated like a second class citizen for any reason. I hope by the time my son is grown up he will be free to choose who he loves and how he commits to that person, without judgement, hate, ridicule or prejudice.
