N.J. court says no on gay marriage

Why the fuck is this something that we even have to argue about? Hopefully, New Jersey gets its shit together and lets these people marry, whether it's by a higher court ruling, or new legislation or whatever. I just can't understand why there is even a debate about this in 2005. It's pretty simple, if you're not gay, if you don't like gay people, if you think it's digusting or immoral or whatever, don't get gay married. That's it, that's all there is to it. I'm not gay, I don't want to marry another man, so I didn't. It really is that easy. Just marry someone of the opposite sex instead, or stay single, become a pathetic old hermit. No one is going to force you to marry someone of the same sex, and there is no reason for you to care whether or not other people do it. It's simply none of your fucking business.

Worried about your children? Don't want them to be gay, or tolerant of gays, or whatever? Fine. Teach your kids to be bigoted homophobic assholes, too. Legalizing gay marraige won't take away from your right to be a lousy parent. If you see married gay people on the street, you're still perfectly welcome to point at them and tell your kids how wrong it is, so that if your kids happen to be gay, they can hide it from you and quietly hate themselves because they think there's something wrong with them.

If you're not gay, how is it going to change your life in any way if gay people can get married? I know it won't change mine, except that I'll feel better that rights that I have are not denied to others based purely on bigotry and ignorance. Gay people are going to exist, you're going to see them, your children are going to see them, you can't stop that, not letting them get married is not going to change it. Now if you could make a law that they all have to go back in the closet (like they have in the military), you'd still be stupid and wrong, but at least I'd understand your motivation. Opposition to gay marraige just doesn't make any sense to me, because the people opposing it have absoultely no stake in the argument.
