A friend of mine posted this on her page.

If you do not support marriage equality, and you currently patronize any of these products/stores/sites...would you stop immediately upon finding out that they do support same sex marriage?

Why is that wrong?

Quoting lizzielouaf:

That's not SSM, that is incest.


Quoting JoshRachelsMAMA:

So would it be acceptable if two brothers married each other or two sisters?

It is, but it's two adults of the same sex wanting to be married. Who are you, or any of us, to deny them their civil rights just because they're related by blood?

After all, if we want marriage "equality", shouldn't it be equal for all?

it is still same sex marriage.   Both are male.


So, why focus on the relative part?

 Right, but why would it be wrong to re-define incest?  Since marriage isn't about children what would be the reason to discriminate against Same Sibling Marriage?

You're all clearly correct. It certainly is a reasonable leap of logic to say two consenting adults will now be applicable to incest, beastiality, fetishism, pedophilia and any other extreme end of the continuum.

You are playing the slippery slope dear.


We are only discussing consenting adults.   Why do you bring children and animals into the discussion?  Why should the uncomfortableness with two brothers or 3 women and 1 man being legally married be such a problem?   Are you a prejudiced?

 It really is a good question when you consider the way many children are being conceived using artificial means.  It is very plausible for 2 people to be genetically related and not even know.
