  •  Marriage legalizes rape, degradation, concubinage (5+ / 0-)

    Who are they kidding?  

    Marriage from its inception, certainly in Western culture, gave men the absolute power over women BY THE LAWS OF MARRIAGE including putting the wife to death.  Marriage made women property.  A husband could demand sex at any time (rape). A wife was the man's service (degradation) The Jewish/Christian/Muslim origins of marriage included multiple wives which defines concubinage.

    It is the right wing that has fought against women's rights along with all other civil rights, gays, blacks, etc.

    For them to hide behind women now to fight civil rights for homosexuals is the most dishonest hypocrisy.
