Have you heard about this case where a man has been filing petition after petition demanding the right to marry his computer?
The article cites other precedents, such as people being able to marry dolphins and cardboard cutouts of themselves. On this blog, I gave the example of the person who married a pillow–although I did issue some probing and important questions that all pillow-rights activists should be prepared to answer.
I find the man’s problem with the courts perplexing. After all, state after state has voted to forbid gay marriage, with referendums, through legislation passed by majority-elected representatives, and even constitutional amendments, and US courts have trampled all over all of these efforts–I mean, we may be closing in on a dozen or more examples now. Yet, here we have courts refusing to affirm this man’s love and devotion for his computer.
This bigotry should not be allowed to stand.
And just so we are clear, if you do not think that people should be allowed to marry their computers, or pillows, or cardboard cutouts of themselves, or their dog, or their two year old daughter, YOU ARE A BIGOT.
Marriage equality means marriage equality. You don’t get to pick and choose; if you believe otherwise, you are a BIGOT.
