For several days now, I?ve been in a running argument with an individual who goes by the name of ?On Lawn? over in the comments sections of the blog ran by anti-gay equality group National Organization for Marriage. In several comments here, here, and here, this person seems to imply that procreation, or at least the potential for procreation, is a requirement of marriage. I?ve tried several times to get this person to explain this concept but they keep brushing off the question calling it absurd. When I tried to point out that there is no link between marriage and procreation they came back with this.
Well, there shows the damage they want to do to the institution. If marriage can?t look equally at the interests of all involved in the practice of human mating, then you tell me what can.
Prehistoric humans didn?t marry before they mated, they just found a bush did it. When you look at the whole of human history, marriage is a relatively new creation, only being a few thousand years old. Our very existence proves that marriage is not a requirement or an essential element of the human mating process.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Ok, ok, I know it’s a couple of days late, but I’ve been on vacation for the last two weeks. It was great to spend as much time as possible doing as little as humanly possible.
I spent most of the two weeks loafing around playing World of Warcraft, watching movies, and thoroughly abusing the new pizza cooker that I bought for myself. Of course the new cooker means fewer Godfather’s orders which in the long run will save me money. I went to Hy-Vee today and for the $20.00 I normally spend on one pizza from Godfathers I picked up 10 frozen pizzas. Yes, if your wondering, I tend to eat a lot of pizza. Up until now I was probably wasting around $100.00 a month on pizza from Godfather’s. While they make great pizzas, its something I’ve never really been able to afford on such a regular basis.
With the beginning of the new year, comes my return to work. BOOOO!!! Don’t get me wrong, I’m satisfied with my job, something that not many people can say. But with two weeks off you just sort of get out of the habit and now I have to get back into it.
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the vicotry of the Mexican Militia over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The holiday is actually celebrated more in the US than in Mexico. Check out the Huffington Post’s write up on the history of Cinco de Mayo for more.
