Why do I not feel guilty for my opinion that same sex marriage is an abomination.

Must be my age and intolerance.

Sparklykid, I think we just have to face the fact, however unpalatable some may find it, the TV has to reflect the world as it is today. Unfortunately, because soaps need to be inclusive, I think there is a disproportionate amount of LGBT's, same sex marriages etc. As well as that there seems to be a disproportionate amount of criminality and death by accident...

Same sex relationships are not only in the TV soaps, they exist.

You are entitled to your opinions.

I prefer to have a broader more tolerant view of the people around me.
Might be your blatant homophobia.

Hi Ken. If homophobia means " straight" or normal, I can live with that.
I think you know that 'homophobia' means 'dislike of or prejudice against gay people', Sparkly. However, if you're happy enough to admit it, then more power to your elbow. I have a friend who is openly racist. he doesn't try to hide it, nor does he try to shove it down our throats, so he is tolerated.
"Must be my age and intolerance."

for once I agree with you.........yes it must be your age and intolerance.

I have no problems with civil partnerships for legal reasons.

But surely, marriage must be man and wife.

Sparklykid, I think we just have to face the fact, however unpalatable some may find it, the TV has to reflect the world as it is today. Unfortunately, because soaps need to be inclusive, I think there is a disproportionate amount of LGBT's, same sex marriages etc.

As well as that there seems to be a disproportionate amount of criminality and death by accident or murder -I mean Emmerdale has seen 23 murders since its inception -a tiny village in the Dales!

In your defence, to find something 'unpalatable' is a far cry from being homophobic -we are all allowed our opinions!
i agree with APG.
Also, if there's something you find unpalatable, turn it off. if enough people do so, the program makers will get your message
We have two gay couples in our family, one of them a Married Couple. I went to their wedding. Lovely girls, both of them. They now have two children. It's a loving relationship, the children are loved and cared for. I am probably in your age group Sparkly Kid and as far as I am concerned, there is nothing to tolerate about the situation. So don't blame it on your age. What have you got to tolerate. How does it affect you?



"But surely, marriage must be man and wife."

why?
I must admit the heavy-handed portrayal of minorities (and minority behaviours) in disproportion to their actual presence in society does put me off these shows - so I don't watch 'em.
you are entitled to your opinion
and so i feel guilty for thinking you are a stupid old .....

A man and wife will guarantee the future of our species.

How can a same sex marriage produce offsprings.
I don't watch all the soaps, but it seems to me that they all seem to have the same sort of characters as in same sex marriages or relationships, people of colour, Asian people, nasty people, nice people, etc. I suppose they think that by doing this, they are covering all the bases.
Agree with APG completely about gay stories/criminal etc stories on the media soaps, and I can live with it. In doesn't affect me in any way.
SparklyKid, surrogacy.
Question Author
Hi PP. I have no guilt in my belief that your inane ramblings are imbecilic.
Sparkly, if it's about producing offspring.... should older people be allowed to get married? Or infertile people? Or those who don't want children?
I am not homophobic but I too am a bit fed up with the soaps gay story lines.
//How can a same sex marriage produce offsprings//

By surrogate, UVF, fostering or adoption the same as a barren marriage.
No one ever banned infertile people from marrying
