The Purpose of This Bl;og

By and large, liberals are very decent, kind, and compassionate people who genuinely want what is best. This should be kept in mind as we explore the Law of Unintended Negative Consequences near invariably resulting from Leftist big-hearted solutions to societal problems.

Same-Sex Marriage--Blurs Critical Male/Female Distinction

Whether intended or not, legalized gay marriage puts the government's seal of approval on not only the obliteration of traditional gender roles in marriage and families, but also on the notion that there is no meaningful difference between men and women.

As Dennis Prager explains: "There is a fierce battle taking place to render meaningless the man-woman distinction, the most important distinction regarding human beings' personal identity. Nothing would accomplish this as much as same-sex marriage. The whole premise of same-sex marriage is that gender is insignificant: It doesn't matter whether you marry a man or a woman. Love, not gender, matters...Increasingly, even the mother-father ideal is being shattered in this battle to render male-female distinction insignificant...[deleted list of examples]...And all this is happening before same-sex marriage is allowed. Imagine what will happen should same-sex marriage become the law of the land. It will hasten the end of the male-female distinction and of any significance to mothers or fathers as distinctive entities....By redefining marriage to include same sex couples we are playing with sexual and societal fire. Just as the entitlement state passes on the cost of our good intentions to our children and grandchildren - unsustainable dependency and debt -- so, too, same-sex marriage will pass along the consequences of our good intentions to our children and grandchildren - gender confusion and the loss of motherhood and fatherhood as values, just to cite two obvious consequences. " (see HERE. See also HERE)

This fits quite well with liberal feminism, most particularly its gender equality agenda and the failed Equal Rights Amendment. (I will be addressing the Leftist LUNCs of feminism at a later date.)

Granted, civil rights ought to be equal between men and women (such as due process and equal protect), and certain societal conditions lend themselves best to equality as well (such as equal pay for equal work---though not in the overly simplified sense that liberals imagine it).

However, societal advantages also exist in recognizing, maintaining, and utilizing natural differences between females and males and mothers and father--and this beyond just anatomical differences.

There is good reason that at the end of millions of years of biological and social evolution, nature would be replete with males and females at nearly all levels of the animal kingdom, and societies would generally have father-mother families as their predominate and fundamental institution.

There is good reason why nations send mostly men to fight on the front lines of war, and why stay-at-home parents are mostly mothers rather than fathers, and why there are different sporting events for men and women, and different retail stores/departments for each, and different kinds of advertising that target respectively.

Each gender is different, and has its own respective beneficial qualities and characteristics (see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE) that, as a general rule, they excel at over the other gender (see previous links as well as HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE), and with which they compliment each other, particularly in terms of raising children (see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE).

If liberals doubt this, they need only ask themselves whether government and business have been improved by including women into those once near-exclusively male environs? Or, as Dennis Prager suggests: "Ask anyone who supports same-sex marriage this: Do you believe that a mother has something unique to give to a child that no father can give and that a father has something unique to give a child that no mother can give? One has to assume that most people -- including supporters of same-sex marriage -- would respond in the affirmative." (See HERE)

Leave it to liberals to cause the Leftist LUNC of bucking millions of years of biological and social evolution and defying the basic political-economic principles of specialization and division of labor by blurring or attempting to eliminate advantageous differences between males and females through, among other things, legalization of same-sex marraige.
