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'm Disabled and I Can Prove It

I'm disabled. 
I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Friday Funnies: Aging Gracefully

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!"
