Then what about polygamist marriages? Ugh, so you’re pulling that card after you’ve exhausted all your time-tried-and-failed other methods? Well let’s see, polygamist marriages, while technically “illegal”, are still occuring all across the United States. Hello Mormonism? And the hit show on TLC “Sister Wives” in which three or four sisters (I don’t remember if one of them wasn’t related to the others or not) are married TO THE SAME MAN.
But here’s the thing: Homosexuality, just like heterosexuality and bisexuality, is just that. It’s a SEXUALITY. You’re either attracted to men or women or both or neither. Polygamy is a choice to accumulate spouses so that you can either have more kids or have more sex or just be able to say “Hey! I’m married to 12 women!”.
But regardless, polygamy doesn’t have to do with attraction. It has to do with desire for more.
I don’t see why it’s so hard for people to not feel the need to butt into other people’s business. “Oh but you gays are all in my face with your pride parades and blah blah blah.” Yes, we do have our pride parades because we have yet to be recognized by the government of the United States as well as countless countries around the world as a legitimate sexuality that is capable of love and compassion just like heterosexual couples.
We live in a country of grand acceptance. Universal suffrage, freedom from bondage, the right to vote for who represents us, and the believe that even the person from the most humble of beginnings can one day have a say in the rulings of the nation are part of our lives. Yet we still live in a country where a representatives of the people can have the idiocy to say things such as that a woman’s body can shut down the reproduction system after rape, and still be allowed to retain any type of leadership power, and where the few (whether they be religiously, politically, or ideologically motivated) can tell me who I can and cannot be married.
