A bigot compared marriage to seatbelts and was hilariously owned – 13 favourite takedowns
In an effort to prove that their opposition to gay marriage was ‘about biology, not bigotry’ this person thought a seatbelt analogy was probably the way ahead.
And it wasn’t, it really wasn’t.
The illustration, such as it is, went wildly viral on Twitter after it was mocked by @mattxiv who said: ‘Real marriage is when seatbelt.’

If you have to try for years and years and years to find new ways to convince people that you’re definitely not a bigot despite all signs to the contrary, then you’re just a fuckin bigot, idk what else to tell you. https://t.co/sP3nzGuwCv

Ironically, a company from a while ago actually tried to do something similar, but it went in the opposite direction pic.twitter.com/EPf6gtjZkB

“Biblical marriage” was sometimes having multiple wives and thousands of concubines lol

The argument that marriage is only for procreation is absurd. Marriage is for love, companionship, intimacy, friendship, joy, strength and so much more. This is not the 1800’s. We expect & demand equality. Get your archaic religion off our lives.
