There are many stupid arguments against gay marriage. In fact, most of them are stupid, especially since there are no good arguments against it.
But the one that has to take the cake is the one that an actual lawyer argued last week before — get this — the United States Supreme Court.
“Marriage has to be between only men and women because, you know, kids. Gays can’t make kids and so their marriage can’t be real.”
How bad do your legal arguments have to be if you’re relying on that? Or, alternatively, how bad of a lawyer must you be?
And how much of an insult is that to people like me and my wife, happily married now for 30 years and childless by choice? What, our marriage isn’t real? It’s not legitimate?
Fortunately, there are some actual smart people on the Supreme Court who are very good at cutting through this bullshit. Let’s all hope they can get through the heads of the bigots that are there, too.
