A huge day, today. I love how mad Texas politicians are about SCOTUS. Fuck ’em.
“Today’s ruling by five Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court marks a radical departure from countless generations of societal law and tradition. The impact of this opinion on our society and the familial fabric of our nation will be profound. Far from a victory for anyone, this is instead a dilution of marriage as a societal institution.
So why the fuck haven’t you outlawed divorce? If anything dilutes marriage it’s the fact that it is so fucking easy to walk away when you feel like it. 80,000 divorces a year just in Texas. Over half of the divorce cases involve children. THIS is the problem.
Whatever, not gonna give a fuck about small-minded people. Of course there’s a Halestorm song that applies, too
You can’t rewire these circuits any other way
Yeah, you can twist the signal
The message is the same
Step out of your bubble and
Maybe you will find
Something that’ll save you
Something that you like
Your old familiar logic is poison on your lips
There’s nothing in the water
It’s just the way it is
There is a lot of energy fretting about the so-called sacred institution of marriage; while divorce rates soar, there are industries dedicated to helping people hook up for no strings attached sex. Marriage may not be what you think it is. It certainly isn’t (here at least) arranged by parents in order to create a better kingdom, and we don’t trade livestock for partners very often any more.
Stop hating, find something else for that energy. People love who they love, and if they are committed enough to want to get married, why the hell not?
