The spread of memes like the HRC logo illustrates that memes are not simply minor moments of slacktivism, but are part of a complex web of digital activism that involves creating content, transmitting memes, and remixing messages that can have significant impacts on off—line behaviors. J Graff puts it, a change in marriage law would mean that marriage would "ever after stand for sexual choice, forcutting the link between sex and diapers". Maybe we just need to change the name of civil union to gay marriage. Finally, a plebiscite is a little much. How else are you going to stop their crap? De facto marriages are now equal to legal marriages under the law. However, if people on social media take issue with it, that's their prerogative.
That doesn't make me a bigot.
I oppose same-sex marriage (and no, I'm not a bigot)
The increase in the share of adults who favor same-sex marriage is due in part to generational change. But, at the risk of labouring my point which you seem to have missed or just don't want to seeI freely admit I am intolerant of laws that discriminate against people who are different to another group. If it was just a term or piece of vocabulary no one would be worried. The revisionist case has not provided a clear and reasonable definition of marriage beyond saying that if two people want to call their relationship by that name, they should be able to by choice. PS, and then the "logic" that the act of lobbying for an issue is the "exact reason why this issue should never reach legislation" is the most profoundly inane reasoning I have seen on this page. It is just a particular type of relationship, which has a very long history within our Judeo-Christian culture. The HRC logo is embedded in a complex ecology of issues — gay marriage rights; transgender rights; the rights of other marginalized groups such as people of color and undocumented immigrants.
However, you may find a place in Russia if you are o. No difference, no distinction -- no discrimination. The middle has already decided Marriage has had many meanings over the years, to claim that changing the definition 'this time' is simply disingenuous. Similarly, the iconic figure of the Statue of Liberty is immediately recognizable for most Americans. This isn't about the "destruction" of marriage.
