America Loves Incest, But Not the Gays.

Well, on my browse around the internugget I came across a rather interesting picture that I just couldn’t help but to pass on to the web world I have access to.

The New York Times published a ballsy infographic with a clear message. The U.S. is ass backwards. Hopefully this will make an impression on you. The two very different graphics side by side show firstly the six (seven including Rhode Island) states supporting gay marriage, and below it the 24 states where it’s legal to marry your first cousin. Excuse me? That’s right. Read it again. The states. Where it’s legal. To marry. Your first cousin.

I want to not be surprised, but I just can’t. Shocking to say the least. The crazy thing is, that some of these states only allow the marriage to take place between these family members when the woman is getting on in years and unable to bear children (age restriction 65), most likely to avoid the momo’s you create when you put same-same genes together! This puts all the pro-marriage groups at a loss for a fight when they say that gay marriage will deplete procreation! Not to mention the ignorant opinion that gay marriage will promote the decline of American morality. Show me the morality first!

Well let’s not stop there. Let’s go off topic of the infographic and share a little information on sex with animals! Did you know that bestiality/zoosexuality/however you want to call it, is not only not illegal, but only a misdemeanor or felony in 37 out of 50 of the states! That’s clearly the majority. People who want to have sex with animals have more rights than gay people who have the prospect of bonding together in marital union.

Pass it on like a hot potato, because information is power and a catalyst for change. Next time you’re in a position to write a senator or your state, attend a rally, or talk to someone in your life about how much it means to get same-sex unions passed, maybe this will help put into perspective how ridiculous it is that congress is still opposing a law that will one day be looked at as the norm. Because in the eyes of most states in America, if my legal Canadian same-sex marriage ever fails, I can always fall back on my Aunt’s children, and my donkey, in the land of the free.
