>I get the "Gays are icky" sentiment
Dude, sorry but again, it's not that gays are icky. Also, no. You totally don't get the sentiment.
I mean, sure. Some may think the gay themselves are icky. I personally think gay sex is icky, but I don't think that about the gay.
In the same sense, I think sex between my parents is icky but I don't dislike my parents. It's a thing I don't like to think about even though I know it's not wrong.
I guess we're all for same-sex marriage here, and that's OK but also kinda dangerous. We're just hearing or own opinions coming from other people so nothing new is added to the conversation. It's important to listen to the other side.
And here it is. This picture is the entire other side, in all its crudeness.
>to act like this is the worst thing to happen since 9/11 is just incomprehensible to me
Sure, but if I may I'll be the Devil's advocate, since I used to oppose same-sex marriage and I know where the opposition comes from.
