2M4M

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I owe a big old tip-of-the-hat to Buffy at Gaytheist Agenda for mentioning this great web coup:

The anti-marriage group National Organization for Marriage got themselves all torqued up over progress on marriage equality and decided to launch a campaign called "2 Million 4 Marriage," which they abbreviated "2M4M."

The irony is here.

Some pro-marriage folks decided to jump on this, and there is now a website at 2M4M.org called "Two Men for Marriage."

They have a delightfully sarcastic response to NOM's insipid "Gathering Storm" ad, and they reposted the great email list of "Ten Reasons Gay Marriage Is Wrong:"

1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.
2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4. Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Brittany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6. Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in the world.
9. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans

Kudos all around!
