Day 18 : Your views on gay marriage....
As a bisexual woman ( and even if I were totally straight ) I am all for gay marriage. You love who you love, and it knows no bounds. It does not matter if it is two females or two males, or even a mix of more than just two people.
In my own personal experiences, I have found gay relationships to be more stable and last much longer, and have fewer instances of cheating and such than in heterosexual couples. Most of the gay and lesbian couples I know or have known have been together for years, loved each other deeply, and were much happier than a lot of the hetero people I know who were in long term, monogamous relationships.
Now this is not to say that gay couples do not face the same relationship issues that straight couples do, far from it, but from my findings, there seems to be less in gay couples.
It is the same for gay couples raising children. A lot of gay couples I know are better parents than some of the hetero couples I have known with children. I know one of the arguments against gay parents are that they will somehow influence their children to be gay as well. That is such a load of crap. Gay parents ( hopefully ) teach their kids to be open minded and to make whatever choice is right for them as individuals, not to be clones of the parents. If anything, I would think some gay parents would be even more understanding about allowing their children to be their own persons, since they have first hand knowledge of how hard it is to be accepted and to be able to live their own life as they see fit.
So in the end, love who you love, let people get married to who they want to, regardless of gender, race, or creed. We have no right to deny anyone the institution of marriage just because it makes some stuffed shirt types sqirmy. If you subscribe to the " It is a sin and your going to Hell" crowd, then you know what? It is THEIR life. What does it matter, what does it change in your life what people do, who people marry? If you think they are going to Hell, then it is on THEIR shoulders, not yours. You live your life the way you see fit, and let everyone else do the same.
