It's Friday people. Let the waygook carnival begin.

Thankfully some posters have already begun the madness by trying to engage people about gay marriage since they are horribly confused as to why no one else finds the gays icky. If we can't stop them, I say we pop some random pill, sniff some solvents, throw away our ID cards and ride the whirlwind with them.

I'll start. If you are for gay marriage how do you stand on a progressive income tax system?

 After all, if you are so keen on equality then surely you must find it unfair that some people pay a higher percentage of tax than others. Bet you didn't think of that when you put that rainbow on your facebook page.

What has gay marriage got to do with progressive taxation?

Oh, I see.  It fits in the category of tenuous links.

Anyway, I think we can put most peoples' minds at rest by stating that gay marriage is not compulsory so they needn't worry.

I just hope they legalize gay divorce soon...

We better clarify the laws now, before artificial intelligence proponents come and try to redefine marriage to include human and robot.

Why all the talk about same-sex marriage all of a sudden? I mean, of the 7 countries which send EFL teachers to Korea, the US was #6 in legalizing same-sex marriage...hardly groundbreaking stuff. 

Why were very few people talking about Ireland legalizing same-sex marriage through a referendum just a few months ago. That's far more impressive than a 5-4 vote in the Supreme Court (I mean most of the judges have been there for years, if not decades, what took them so damn long?).

The thing I find pretty funny about this is that many Americans, here and in their country, are freaking out about how this will change everything.  Meanwhile, there are, what 15?  17 now? other countries that have had gay marriage for years now.  Canada will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary this month (Ontario and some other provinces have had it even longer).  It's such a non-thing for us now.  Lightning didn't come down from the heavens, society didn't collapse, cats and dogs didn't suddenly start freely cavorting, straight marriage didn't cease to exist.  Honestly, I think if you polled 100 Canadians on this issue most would probably respond, "Oh yeah...the gays can marry....I forgot.....good for them...."  That is exactly what my mother said last year when the subject was brought up at dinner when I was visiting. 

My point is that it's already been proven around the world that this decision won't really change anything for the majority of people.  But that doesn't make clickbait, so instead American sites and TV have to give a voice to these crazy people.  And same with the people here making these threads.  Many/most of us come from countries that already legalized gay marriage.  Actually, out of the seven countries that can get you an E-2 visa here, now only Australia doesn't allow it.  We've all seen the destruction and devastation that it does to our countries, or lack thereof.  So I don't know who they're expecting to rile up with these threads. 

Been there, done that.  Got the t-shirt.  And it was faaaaaaaaaaabulous!  8)

USA is bigger in terms of population and economy than all of those other minuscule socialist "countries" combined. Naturally this means more gays and gay marriages than all those countries combined.
