Also, I hear the pills that mother gives you don't do anything at all.

"We should not have sex education because it is immoral to have sex education."
"Well what about for cases of girls who without it will become pregnant at 16?"
"Well, ok, in those cases, sure."
Right there, that exchange alone would cut abortion figures in half. Also you'd know for sure that the girls signing up for sex ed were whores, so ... win-win.

Regardless, I really want to read a copy of the minutes from the state legislature.

Yeah, Star Trek is true!
I worry less about people wanting to marry their androids than I do about people wanting to marry their anthropomorphic dragons, or singing teapots, or talking gargoyles. Because those things exist! It's true! Watch any Disny movie! It's only a matter of time now before the legislation starts! We need to ban gay marriage before human/gargoyle marriage rears its poisonous head!

And yeah, the next time I'm in an argument I'm damn sure going to try to apply the Star Trek attack somehow. It's good to add a new tactic to my repertoire - the iroquis communalismist defense has been getting too much use.

This stuff was discussed of course in Asimov's Robot series, and hence its bastard stepchild, the Data character in Star Trek. Naturally when those writers took on the idea, they were talking about us, here and now. Star Trek with a more general question of identity, and a throwback to times of himan property ownership, while Asimov was referring to more recent miscegenation laws in America. Neither storyline delved into the gay marriage argument (though Trek should have, since human property and miscegenation was over and done), so this guy's doing it for us.
I think its failure to become a meme is it's just too stupid to watch all the way through. Another possibility, and I shudder to think it, is that the gay community are split on whether their argument needs to be a libertarian one. No, it doesn't. I have seen articles written by gays men saying that if they expect society to honour gay marriage then the gay community will have to back religious polygamist communities. No they will not. It is not a libertarian argument focusing on the idea that anyone can do as they please, so long as they hurt noone or any of that Wicca. It is gay marriage, full stop. Either these are legitimate human relationships, and they should be honoured as such, or they are not. Honouring them does not mean that we need to honour incest, or man-boy love, or duck-fucking, or marrying toasters, or whatever. The day comes that society considers those sorts of relationships to have a legitimate place, then discuss marriage at that time. But for now we're talking about a real community of real people who clearly want to marry and whom we have accepted as members of our society. Homosexual love is no longer illegal. That's the argument.
Of course when we get robots that can feel love, someone is going to raise this argument. Of course that will happen, in the unlikely case that the robots are possible. This guy is presenting this as a some harbinger of doom. I don' see why not. Rather than be amazed that we can even imagine a future where humaniform robots are self-aware and capable of abstract thought and emotion, he's worried about two dudes kissing. "You honna! We might, one day, dunno, mebbe two hunnit yeeas away, have robots! So, what then, huh? We can't let these faggits hook up!"
Anyway I am going to link it on my facebook page. Let's roll this ball.

"And the Evil that was vanquished shall rise anew. Wrapped in the guise of man shall he walk amongst the innocent and Terror shall consume they that dwell upon the Earth. The skies will rain fire. The seas shall become as blood. The righteous shall fall before the wicked! And all creation shall tremble before the burning standards of Hell!" - Mephisto
Kurgan X showed me this web comic done with Legos. It pokes fun at all six Star Wars films and I found it to be extremely entertaining.

If in a 100 years we have artificially intelligent androids capable of fully reasonable thinking the way that any other person can, I totally think we should be able to marry them the way we would any other person.
PM me, we'll talk.
