Ten reasons why gay marriage should be illegal. Or not ?

Notice : Be sure to read the whole post before concluding too early :)
There is a rather sacarstic yet amusing meme going all around the internet these days, giving 10 common arguments, and counter-arguments, on why gay marriage should be illegal.
While I admit I am not too opinionated on this topic, the following list is pretty convincing and eventually preaches for open-mindedness. Which is a good thing :)

  • Being gay is not natural.
    Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.
  • Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay
    In the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
  • Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior.
    People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
  • Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all
    Women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
  • Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed
    The sanctity of Britany Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
  • Straight marriages are valid because they produce children.
    Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children
  • Obviously gay parents will raise gay children
    Since straight parents only raise straight children.
  • Gay marriage is not supported by religion.
    In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.
  • Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home.
    That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
  • Gay marriage will change the foundation of society
    We could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Nothing is more effective than humor when it comes to spreading an educational message over such a sensitive topic. Spread the meme on your own blog !
