Slippery slope.

Posted: February 15, 2015 in Uncategorized

I was having a conversation with a client the other day (yes…I realize most of my posts start this way.) She was telling me about Alabama refusing to sign marriage certificates because they didn’t want to support gay marriage.
The argument one judge was using is that if we allow same sex marriage we will take a ride on a slippery slope, and soon enough, people will be marrying their pets. Yes he went from two human beings to bestiality.
Honestly if a person wants to marry their dog I think we should have them fill out some sort license. Then we would know that they do in fact want to marry their dog. Wouldn’t that be something you would want to know about a person. As a woman I would want to know if the person I’m dating is only doing so because he can’t date Fluffy. To be second best to a persons pet would be a huge blow to someone’s self esteem. Or if you weren’t dating them you would still want to know for other reasons. (If the person runs a kennel I would think twice about sending. Delilah Jane there.)

You would be able to make a informed decision on if you want to communicate with them and their bitch. (Couldn’t resist)
Just because something is illegal doesn’t mean people automatically follow the rule. I guarantee the thoughts were already there. I don’t see someone that has never had romantic feelings for their pet one day decide to take the marital plunge because it is now legal.
If people showed their true colors more misunderstandings and heartbreak would be reduced incredibly. I go back to the dating contact idea in my last post. Let your freak flag fly don’t hide it just to have it revealed at the worst possible time.
I have a feeling this has nothing to do with this judges feelings for two human beings who want to partake in marriage, but maybe its his confusing feelings he has toward his dog.

    I found that leap to a slippery slop rather absurd myself.

    I also find it difficult to understand this fear of gay marriage morphing into bestiality. I do kind of get the concern that gay marriage could lead to acceptance of polyamory or maybe bigamy down the road?
