The Very Newest Line On LGBT Marriage: Didn't Count This As Humor, But Should Have

I have read, watched and heard some awfully absurd things about lgbt marriage and why it should not be approved. But this takes the cake! I have to say it certainly made my giggle reflex come to life.

Just about every thought, coming from this thrice divorced writer, is patently bizarre. Try this on for size:

...It is that marriage is concerned above all with female sexuality. The very existence of kinship depends on the protection of females from rape, degradation, and concubinage. This is why marriage between men and women has been necessary in virtually every society ever known. Marriage, whatever its particular manifestation in a particular culture or epoch, is essentially about who may and who may not have sexual access to a woman when she becomes an adult, and is also about how her adulthood--and sexual accessibility--is defined.

Good Lord. Put me on a dinosaur and carry me away, would you?

So now, in 2009, we surrender women to the past in the necessary care of only a man? What about herself? What about law? What about family and friends?

This... this clearly absurd idea is the reason to be against gay marriage?

We're winning as evidenced by such shoddy, if humorous, logic. Next thing you know, the reason to stop same gender marriage is that certain complexions don't look good against off-white!

I guess when you are desperate, you throw whatever the spaghetti machine spits out at the wall to see if it sticks. It ain't stickin'.
