Chinese language Prop 8 ad needs little translation

If you’re not interested in watching, using dolls this Chinese language ad claims that if Prop 8 doesn’t pass soon mothers will be able to marry their sons, polygamy will be legalized, and minors will be able to marry adults. I’m guessing they couldn’t find any toy sheep, as no mention is made of bestiality.

And a personal plug: if you haven’t read them already, my Top 8 Reasons to Vote Yea on Prop 8.

  1. This is a little extreme, but it is important for marriage to be defined. I’m glad that domestic parters have the same legal rights as married couples. I’m from here in California, and I wish that people could be respectful when they present their views and opinions. We all have the right to voice our beliefs, and stand by them… but we don’t have to be belittling to do so.

  3. Defining marriage as between one man and one woman is not taking away anyone’s rights. The definition simply distinguishes a union that is biologically capable of producing its own children. Whether a married couple has children or not, I feel like this deserves a separate name–even the potential is kind of a miracle.

    Actually this definition can be seen as the ultimate expression of equality our society has to offer: it takes one man and one woman. One could see a lesbian union as a marginalization of men, or a homosexual union as a marginalization of women.

    Equality is especially important when it comes to raising children. Children deserve/need a father and a mother. Neither parent should be marginalized.

    Yes, many children are already growing up in single-parent homes. Prop 8 should be a reminder to everyone that as a society we need to assist and strengthen families as much as possible. Really, as a society we should be most concerned with the success and health of our families.

    peace out.

  4. Gay marriage is now legal. If we eliminate that, we ARE taking rights away. Clothe it as nicely as you like, but people, including many children, will suffer. Who suffers if it is legal? Nobody. This is total bullshit.

    Following this logic, Lee, do you support the elimination or dissolution of marriages that do not produce children? How about making divorce illegal? Thought so.

    Miracle?

    Reproduction is a miracle? Are the Christian conservatives so enamored with themselves to actually believe this? There is nothing “miraculous” about being able to reproduce another copy of the species. In fact, last time I checked, every species still in existence is capable of doing so.

    But now the argument is that this act is so “miraculous,” that the term “marriage” must preserved to describe it.

    So, when we see two dogs f@#$^!, we ought remember the “miracle” and solemnize their union in “marriage.” Or, when we sneeze due to allergies, we must not be frustrated at the pollen but be in awe of the “miracle” of the trees reproducing.

    Sounds pretty idiotic, huh? Almost as idiotic as asserting that “marriage” is anything but a social construct — the definition of which should be defined by society.

    Yes… if those were the only unions that were legal. Hey, wait a minute… you just made the case against Prop 8! Thanks!

    (btw, the word “homosexual” includes the subclass of “lesbian”. try to figure out what you’re discussing before you just start spewing vile, mindless crap out onto “teh interwebs”.)
