Lets go further, why can't a man marry his sister? Oh there are genetic deffects that would result in any children born? Well, we can fix that with
egg or sperm donation, so they can still have children just like normal same sex couples can. After all, if they love each other why should we stop
them? What more stable marriage could you get, they were brought up together and know everything about each other, if after all that they want to
live the rest of thier lives together then it is obvious they would make the perfect couple. The children would be brought up in a stable family.
See, you can defend anything if you want to.
First of all, this is already happening in many cultures/ religions, that they intermarry legally [often forced] with [very] close relatives and the
outcomes are horrific but it is legal and happening in many countries, so it isn't just your 'hypothetical' scenario, therefore your argument is
You are also allowed to live with your sibling, regardless if you play with each other's bits and you have already more rights because you are
related. So marriage wouldn't really add anything. Lots of Twins live together.
Secondly homosexuals are all human [last time I looked], they are not of another species. So if two humans fall in love, who actually cares about
Seriously, people are too obsessed with genitals. Oooh, they both have Willies...so effing what?
Would people be as annoyed if two asexual people loved each other and wanted to marry?
A relationship is NOT just based around sex. Sex is part of it but the greater rest is filled with understanding each other, having a laugh, feeling
protected, feeling at ease, being happy with each other, having similar interests, going out together, making a nest to live in, holding hands, having
a cuddle whilst watching a film, cooking together etc etc etc.
Gay people do all those things above and yes, sometimes they play with their bits. How this is in any way relevant to others is beyond me. Unless you
are unhealthily obsessed with genitalia or you are in such a bad marriage where you are jealous when it works for others.
In the end I personally could't care less if you want to marry your sibling [no need , but hey], marry 50 wives or husbands, or marry the same
gender. As long as you are happy and as long as all marriages are treated equally.
Gay people had to fight hard to get what should be their right, if anyone wants to fight for marrying their siblings or become a polygamist then they
also have the RIGHT to fight for it. Who knows, if enough people are interested they may get what they want.
Sitting huffing and puffing in your armchair using illogical arguments will never make a change, it just makes you look very uneducated. All I can say
is that life is short, love is strong and nature is all encompassing.
So why are there some individuals who think they know better than mother nature [who is totally happy with homosexuality as it happens in all
lifeforms, all the time and has never had any negative outcome to evolution or it would be naturally deselected]?
