Got into yet another fight with my mom over LGBTQ rights.

Heh, it's sad that I can never get through to her with fucking cold hard facts. YES, more states allow 1st cousin marriage than gay marriage. YES, being gay was at one time in the fucking DSM. NO, being raised by gay parents doesn't not make you more likely to get into crime THEY COME OUT PERFECTLY FINE GODDAMMIT, THEY ARE NOT FUCKING "CONFUSED". AND YES THEY DID FUCKING STUDIES ON THIS.

Being ok with LGBTQ relationships but saying they're "disgusting" at the same time, and that marriage is only for a man and a woman? What the actual fuck mother? Oh and she used the slippery slope argument too. Uh, no, marrying someone of the same sex and marrying your own children DOES NOT FUCKING COMPARE.

Ugh. I just want to go curl up and cry.

I can't get through to her.

I can't put up with this anymore.

For the 'slippery slope' argument - ask her why she thinks a consenting adult who was already able to marry someone is the same as a child or animal. And ask her if she realises that people made the same argument that people could marry children or their pets when they were legalising interracial marriage, and that didn't exactly... happen.

But ugh, I'm sorry you had to deal with that :(

Yeahhh >.< It's why, when I've been arguing for marriage equality, I've been leaving out the 'two' part in 'two consenting adults'. If everyone involved is able to consent, and does so, then what's the problem?
