It’s been an odd month in the gay marriage debate, with both sides trying to outdo each other in the ridiculousness stakes.
The pro-gay marriage lobby did well with their baffling stunt of a gay man and a lesbian (comedians Rhys Nicholson and Zoe Coombs Marr) getting married to prove love, not gender, should rule who can and can’t get married.
But they were spectacularly topped by anti-gay marriage protester Chris Sevier who is suing the state of Texas for refusing to let him marry his MacBook. By his somewhat twisted logic, he says marrying the inanimate chunk of metal is the same as a same-sex couple’s right to tie the knot.
“The question is, should we have policies that encourage that kind of lifestyle?” he told the Houston Press. “The state is not doing anyone any favours by encouraging people to live that lifestyle. We have to define marriage.”
OK we get his point, but it’s undermined slightly by the mental image of him sticking a cock into his computer.
