Lucia Whale Oil has list of words that should be banned in 2013

He missed out "marriage equality", the biggest piece of political propaganda around, of the type that Goebbels would be proud of. I mean, if you are against "equality", there must be something wrong with you!

"Marriage equality" as a phrase is a clever catchphrase for those who don't think too deeply. It's mostly meaningless, in that it tries to equate the supposed marriage of two of the same sex as equal to that of a man and a woman - except that two of the same sex cannot marry because they are not a man and a woman. It is impossible to call a same-sex relationship marriage, except if you want to introduce lies into the language. Equality is not missing, but an understanding of what reality is, in those who propagate this phrase.

Nothing says 'Love' like a clenched fist....

Isumbras, that's right. Probably why that particular image is not in use today.

I agree that "marriage equality" is meaningless; a sound bite for propaganda.

What about, say, Brother/Sister Equality? I should have the right to call you my sister, even if you're not, because otherwise it's not fair that I'm missing out on the familial relationship that I desire with you and which real brothers and sisters enjoy and I should have the same rights as a real brother - because I'm being discriminated against otherwise.

That makes as much sense.

What worries me is all these people who actually seem to think love is illegal. What's with that?!?

Fletch, you rarely make sense, and that post is no exception.

You can call anyone you like sister, it is not an activity controlled by law, it does not require the entering in to of a binding contract.

At the church I once attended we called everyone there our brothers and sisters, and we were by no means alone in that.

Does not the catholic church have brothers and sisters that are not blood relatives?

LRO, Lucia wrote the post.

All you've managed to argue there LRO, that the word "brother" means something different when placed in a different context.

And yet with the the marriage equality debate, the argument is that a gay marriage is exactly the same as a marriage between a man and a women.

So do we accept your argument to keep everyone happy? Gay people can call themselves married, but we all know that it is a fiction, merely using the word in a different way, just as using the word "brother" to describe a fellow is different than a brother created from the same parents?

wow ZT! You've bin a thunkin' for a month, and this is all you have?

ZenTiger said...

Heh, more like that's all your argument required.
