    The thought of being pinned down by a bigger, more muscular man after trying to hit him because of a fight is very appealing.

    Plus points if the man is the languid, non-confrontational kind. Or the very nice kind you normally don't get in a fight with.<3

    you know
    people say gay marriage is a slippery slope
    and then other people point out that its a fallacy
    but if we are able to genetically enhance animal sentience
    then people actually will end up wanting rights to marry animals
    (and so would the animals), and neocons will all be, like
    "told you!"

    I believe that there's a state in the US in which someone married their horse, in the time of the "old west" maybe, they did it though.

    To be honest people can think what they like, to a certain extent they can do what they like too, that's always been the case and so long as there's no interference people generally dont care too much. The most important social norms have survived the best and worst attempts at their undoing.

    When it crosses a line into telling others how they should think, through all sorts of censure, how they should act, through pressure, policy or prohibitive laws, that's wrong headed.

    No matter how much good intent there is, no matter what wrongs, past or present, its hoped it will ameliorate, no matter what compensation it is hoped it will be to outsiders or minorities, its still wrong headed, and it will end in greater misery than there was to begin with, not least for the very same people the idea was intended to help out.

    The whole gay "marriage" thing is one of those things that bothers me because its evoked such strong, strong feelings, on all sides of the debate, and next to no serious thinking by any side of the debate or any persuasion, definitely not of the long, long term, long into the past and long into the future. Its a great, great shame because its a topic which should raise good questions about proportionality, minority-majority relations, norms and mores between generations. It sure hasnt.
