“Let’s be clear: Children under the age of 21 cannot procure alcohol; children under the age of 18 cannot vote; children under the age of 15 cannot drive; but a child aged 14 can enter into a legally binding union with another child in North Carolina — if the girl is pregnant. And it’s the committed gay couples we need to worry about?”
Well said, Ms. Flaxman.
This is the sort of thing that I just don’t get. Whether you are for or against same-sex marriage, surely it’s clear that getting the government involved is not a good thing. There’s a point where we just need to buckle up and be responsible for our own actions, rather than hoping the government will legislate it. Doing that is just asking for trouble.
