Head of Hawaii's anti-equality movement: Marriage equality will lead to bestiality, women marrying selves

by Jeremy Hooper

Jim Hochberg is Hawaii's longtime foe of marriage equality and the head of the current effort against us. Here's what he's telling his neighbors:

Beastaility [sic]? Conubinage? Person-on-self marriage? Oh, the aggressive fear mongering! What a charming, charming movement.

And oh, that old nugget about bisexual people supposedly wanting two spouses. Why can't they understand that capacity for attraction is not the same thing as commitment to a spouse? I mean, any of us are potentially attracted to any number of prospective partners, regardless of gender. But those of us who want to commit to a relationship and marriage self-limit our options to our own, dedicated, loving partner/spouse. That does not change simply because a person's orientation is less interested in genitalia and more interested in the person.

If Hawaii legislators needed even more reason to move forward with the marriage bill, here it is. Hawaii's loving same-sex couples are not "slippery slopes"—they are good, decent, taxpaying citizens. Our 50th state has a great opportunity to take a much more forward-thinking placement in our national state lineup.
