Casamento entre homossexuais
[a propósito da hipocrisia maniqueísta do nosso espaço público]

Legalizing gay marriage would offer homosexuals the same deal society now offers heterosexuals: general social approval and specific legal advantages in exchange for a deeper and harder-to-extract-yourself-from commitment to another human being. Like straight marriage, it would foster social cohesion, emotional security, and economic prudence. Since there's no reason gays should not be allowed to adopt or be foster parents, it could also help nurture children. And its introduction would not be some sort of radical break with social custom. As it has become more acceptable for gay people to acknowledge their loves publicly, more and more have committed themselves to one another for life in full view of their families and their friends. A law institutionalizing gay marriage would merely reinforce a healthy social trend. It would also, in the wake of AIDS, qualify as a genuine public health measure. Those conservatives who deplore promiscuity among some homosexuals should be among the first to support it. Burke could have written a powerful case for it.

Pois é… parece prosa dos mais eruditos bloquistas portugueses, não é? Mas não é… é prosa de Andrew Sullivan, um destacado conservador norte-americano...

Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!
