Ok… so the German state supports marriage with special privileges to ensure people actually get some kids…

But what about single parents? - Well, any child support directly aimed at the child goes to the raising parent.

But no tax cuts, as far as I know. Stuff that might help the parent and thus indirectly the kid go only to married couples who not always will have kids…

And on the other hand, being married is obligatory if you wish to adopt a child (I never got behind this. Any reason one can bring up about this is so full of holes I can throw it on the floor as a decorative rug.)… 

Yet, gay people who’d wish to marry and adopt a kid are banned from this, since they are not allowed to marry. 

Meanwhile, kids who’d find a loving home remain in state custody… because this is apparently still better for them, Idk…

The only benefit and privilege of marraige I don’t see a reason arguing against is that in case of an accident your spouse can speak for you and act in your name regarding your health, That’s it.

Aside of that, marriage privileges is the government way to say “So, we give you some tax cuts, now go and make babies.” (which would be no problem with me if a) gay people would be allowed to marry and b) such tax cuts would be related to the children in your custody - you have kids, you get tax cuts, because kids are expensive and you can do with paying less taxes. Less kids - less cuts. No kids? No cuts - and this please related to how many people share custody over how many kids.)

In short, marriage is pretty full of heteronormativity and needs a dire reform. First step would be marriage equality.

I honestly think people forget that the church and state are supposed to be separate. Give me one non-religious reason against same sex marriage. One non-religious reason against stem cell research. One non-religious reason against safe abortions. Go ahead.

It makes the German Chancellor uncomfortable

No but it IS her argument. Like seriously.

It causes her “great distress”.

Still don’t know what the reasons for Austrian politicians are. Probably also that they’re uncomfortable.

But well okay, we have some almost-marriage-like thing for same sex partners but it’s no full marriage and that’s really annoying because people argue that we already have that so ‘why do we need more?’.
Because the people who want to marry are humans. That’s why.
Unfortunately reasons that apply to logic aren’t very popular in politics.

Same here, we have this “Eingetragene Lebenspartnershaft” thing.
Thing is, this STILL is not on the same level as marriage. Oh you can have this and say “We’re married” it’s taken as such, but on insurance, taxes, family issues it’s still WAY less than marriage.
and… you know, if people wish to support marriage with special privileges for married couples ok. Fine. I guess (these shennanigans were to support people and get them to have some kids. Which is discriminating against single parents, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut… ok? Let’s say, the whole institution needs a goddamn reform)

So… privileges for married couples - hm, ok, fine. I guess. (no, actually not fine, but I digress).
BUT: Marriage IN ITSELF is declared a civil right by German law.
… … why the fuck is it treated like a privilege then?

And dear Mrs. Merkel KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DISCOMFORT OUT OF A DEBATE DECIDING ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.

You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.

And not that Denny’s. Let’s go to the good one across town.

The accuracy of this scares me so much

And you only end up at Denny’s if the Steak & Shake is overrun with teenagers.

Denny’s, Steak & Shake, Four Guys… what the fuck is wrong with you

why don’t you eat at normal places like greasy kebab shops

everybody knows that the only thing you can eat at 3 am is a kebab without onions and some baklava

Shhh, sweetie, this is America, I doubt they know the joy of having 20 independent kebab vendors in your city… poor, unfortunate souls…
