Intolerance unleashed
25 Oct 2012 | CONJUGALITY |  
tags: Referendum 74, Washington State
It is often the case that the presenters of reasoned and reasonable arguments end up driving their opponents to a level of frustration which makes them explode violently – because they have no reasoned argument with which to respond. Is this a case in point?


It’s just not fair, is it?

Segregating genders in marriage to suit the sexual attractions of less than 2% of the population isn’t enough. This woman with same-sex attraction wants scientists to “try harder” and give “priority” to making it possible for two women to procreate. Michelle Cheever says: “I want to have babies the way straight people do.”


Silly but sinister

The hi-jacking of language and the future of marriage
13 Aug 2012 | CONJUGALITY |  
tags: Chick-fil-A, language
A decade ago you could simply say “married” and everybody and his gay brother knew you were talking about a husband and wife. No more. I live in Vermont, which is one of the six states that legalized monogender marriage. When a couple marries, you have no idea what gender they are. It could be one of three distinct compositions: male-male, female-female, or male-female.

Robert Lopez tells his story about being raised by two moms. It is not just his sexual orientation that was impacted, but he missed out on vital gender cues that a male role model normally provides.

tags: Dan Cathy, marriage, Savage
Pro-gender advocates believe gender-integration is crucial to marriage, the bedrock of culture. This allows children to grow up with both a mother and a father.

In contrast, the born-this-way believers have elevated sexual orientation to such an extent that it has become more important than sexual gender.
