Do You Support Full Marriage Equality?

If you are in favor of having any law that would prevent an adult from sharing love, sex, residence, or marriage with any consenting adults, then you are against full marriage equality.

If you think a same-sex couple should be happy with a second-class relationship designation, you are not supporting full marriage equality.

If you would deny a marriage license to a woman and man who want to marry another man, you are not supporting full marriage equality.

If you would deny a marriage license to partners who are polyamorous or to partners who agree to have an open marriage, you are not supporting full marriage equality.

If you would deny a marriage license to two sisters, you are not supporting full marriage equality.

If you support a law against any of these people even living together or having sex, you are certainly against full marriage equality and you are trying to interfere in the private lives of others.

You may support the freedom to marry for yourself or your friends. But do you support the right to marry and marriage equality for all? Equality just for some is not equality.

Full marriage equality depends on gender equality, freedom of association, the right to not marry, protections against domestic violence, equal access to divorce, and protection against bullying and discrimination. The sooner we reach full marriage equality, the better, as people will be able to have the relationships of their choosing, the relationships in which they can best function and share love and happiness. If you think marriage is dying and you don't like that, revive marriage by allowing more people to have happy marriages.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
