My Opinion on Gay Marriage

Gay marriage... while I'm not opposed to gay marriage, I'm definitely not going to make it mandatory! 

Seriously, gay people have been getting married for hundreds of years, they just haven't had the civil rights. 

Whether or not it's okay for people to be gay is a moral issue.  It should be argued about in churches and across dinner tables, but not in the Supreme Court.  If we, as Americans, are going to be a society that universally respects others, then we have to allow gay marriage.  The only time that the state should impose its will on morality is when there are issues of public health and safety or significant issues of economic importance at risk. 

What we know is that gay couples who have long term monogamous relationships are far less likely to acquire AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases.  Furthermore, most gay couples are dual income households.  With the exception of extra penises and vaginas, gay couples are probably the model American household.  Lastly, we can't legislate love, nor should we try.

  1. SunFyre, I've read a few of your posts and I find them extremely interesting. Your claim to have an IQ of 165 is a bit dubious considering that the typical standard deviation of a normal IQ distribution is 15 points (putting you in about the 99.999% territory). However, I'm willing to let it slide...

    I read an article a while back about some of the less publicized consequences of homosexuality, and after reading your post I thought you might like to read it too. It offers compelling evidence why homosexual marriage, since the time of Nero and before, has never been accepted by any healthy society. There are some very important differences between hetero and homosexual relationships that people need to understand before forming an educated opinion on the matter.

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
