Love Is Love. Terms and Conditions May Apply.
There is a curious paradox in our society concerning one of the most fundamental concepts of the human experience, love.
Who can define it? Who can tell you what love is and is not, or how it should be for the many billions of people who do or will experience it?
In the United States today, a social and legal war is raging over what rights two (or more) people in love have, as well as how those rights are decided. Should religious canon dictate our laws? Our forefathers founded this country based on the notion of separation of Church and State, but as we can so plainly see in the gay marriage debate, that separation is still being fought for 240 years later.
Even a year removed from Obergefell v. Hodges, in which the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry, dissenters across the nation refute that the LGBT community is equal to their heterosexual counterparts. Following horrifying attacks against the gay community, such as the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, the refrain “Love is love” has been plastered on banners, sidewalks, and social media accounts everywhere you look: But do they mean what they say, or is there hypocrisy even among those who most support ‘equality’?
Recently arrested for incest, this mother-son couple maintains that they are madly in love, and their defense of Genetic Sexual Attraction may change the way you look at romance.
The slippery slope is real.
