Tradition

February 13th, 2010

Who is allowed to get married:

Terrorists

Rapists

Murderers

Child molesters

Convicted felons

Serial divorcers

Wife beaters

Husband beaters

People who want to have children

People who don’t want to have children

People who can’t have children

Religious people

Atheists

First cousins

Fourteen year olds

Pretty much everybody.

 

Who isn’t allowed to get married:

Siblings

Gays

 

There are good genetic reasons for not letting close relatives marry

(Noone has ever argued the contrary).

But gays? The only offered exposition

Is that it doesn’t fit the “traditional” definition.

     Slavery too used to be a tradition

For most of human history (until its recent abolition).

Just because something’s a tradition doesn’t mean it’s right,

So let’s create a new tradition: equal marriage right.
