I've been thinking about gender, race, and orientation equality a lot recently. I don't know how others feel, but I felt I needed to tell someone my feelings on the subject.
All people are, or should be equal in the eyes of the law. I think that if the term Marriage is such a sticking point, then legally ALL contracts joining two people in that manner should be Civil Unions. I would have no problem having my marriage license reclassified. I see no reason for same sex couples to have anything different from hetero couples. LGBT, hermaphrodites, brown skin or pale, everyone deserves the same legal protections.
I truly don't understand why people are so afraid of this idea. Unfortunately, telling me I'll understand when I'm older isn't going to help, I think by the time you pass 30, if the status quo still doesn't make sense, it probably never will.
I feel it's pretty safe for me to post this here, because I think we can have a civil discussion. Most people here seem willing to think and discuss, rather than just react. (yes, tried this thread elsewhere, bad results)
Thanks for reading.
