people scrutinize the social and economic place of people’s motives really heavily when they’re part of a disadvantaged group
‘this teenaged girl is just trying to make herself look cool’, unlike every other teenager
‘what if people get gay married purely for money’, as distinct from every straight marriage
I saw an article in my grandfathers christian magazines that like interviewed the founder of the ruth institute and I forget the exact quotes but she basically says she wants to make it clear that legalizing gay marriage wouldn’t give gay people the right to marry, it would give anyone the right to marry
like a bad thing
like she was saying that people could get married for any reason, or like marry their best (same sex) frined for tax breaks or whatever.
and I’m reading this like buddy
can’t straight people do that now?
