Guess what?

Even in some fanciful alternate world in which gay marriage did pose some sorta huge threat to straight marriage and the fabric of society and blahdy blah--I would still support it, because it still would be unethical to deprive a large swath of citizens their equal rights. I feel like there's this implicit concession out there that "oh, well, if gay marriage did do all these things..." Nope! Right is right. Ending slavery was economically painful for a large number of southerners. Would anyone in the world try to represent that as a cogent pro-slavery argument?

...though come to think of it, this "alternate world" would have to be so fundamentally different from our own in every respect that arguments as to what one would do there are probably kind of meaningless.
