|"...a disgrace to humanity!"|
I had an online discussion with a christian yesterday and of course the slippery slope to paedophilia was mentioned as a reason for not allowing marriage equality. Yes it's a tired old irrelevant argument. Marriage equality has nothing to do with paedophilia, any more than straight marriage does.
But there's also the long held belief by some that gays are paedophiles, something that just isn't true. In fact the studies show that most paedophiles identify sexually as straight. I don't know where this lie came from that our community is full of child molesters, and there's people around today who still believe that. It's a terrible slur on our community that we don't deserve.
