It honestly makes me sad to think that gay marriage may never be legal in my lifetime. I hope it happens, but, given the moral climate of some states I feel like there is still alot of progression that needs to happen before it can be achieved. Two of my best friends are gay it pisses me off that i will never get to see them experience the happiness that some people do on thier wedding day.
I mean, it doesn't even have to be a religious ceremony, even if it's a non denominational affair performed by a Judge or a Boat Captain (I'm pretty sure they can still marry people).
I also find the whole argument of "ruining the sanctity of marriage" to be flawed. When you get down to it, in a legal sense, marriage is nothing more than a contract recognized by the law. People "ruin the sanctity of contracts" all the time when the embezzle money, steal, cheat people out of goods and services, etc. Yea, people get pissed off about it, but they don't flip out like some people do over the issue of gay marriage. Since when does wanting to marry someone you love make you less of a person than someone who screws over people that trust them?
I'm not gay so i don't exactly have a horse in the race, but since the issue can directly effect some people that are close to me i just felt compelled to give my input.
Edit: As far as queercore goes, check out Pansy Division. Easily one of my fav punk bands.
