    Please. Leave Bert and Ernie out of this.

  • Pro Libertate||

    They are not fucking gay. They are roommates. Christ, the one thing I hate about gay politics is that now, everything is gay. Guys can't be friends without being gay. Gay, gay, gay.

    We need a new social cause of the day. Maybe polygamists? Or robot rights?

    Robot polygamists?

  • Pro Libertate||

    Sure. Just something else, please.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    To be clear, this is an event promoting same-sex marriage licensing and not promoting deregulation of the marriage industry, right? Because technically the latter leads to equality, too.

  • Alex||

    If one is to be consistent with the pro-gay marriage argument, then ending the state's role in marriage altogether would deny everyone their rights. Or something.

  • T o n y||

    It would be rather suspicious timing. "Gays want equal access to rights and entitlements? Fine! Nobody gets them!"

  • JeremyR||

    Shouldn't you be protesting that the government is in the marriage business in the first place?

  • Pro Libertate||

    Yeah, instead of "Marriage Equality" how about "Marriage Neutrality"?

  • Lucretio||

    What'll happen first: gay marriage or humans lose an affinity for statism? Hoping for the latter while blocking the former is super, suuuper mean.

    Drug offenders can't vote until we switch to the Condorcet method.

    No. Because even here at Reason, they want to use the government to force their social preferences on everyone else. Drugs? Legalize now. Gay Marriage? Let’s compromise and use existing government structures to advance our agenda.
