I have seen a post many times on Facebook.  A person walks into subway wanting to order their favorite sub and get irate when the person ahead of them doesn't order the sub the person wanted.

That is what people sound like when they say gay marriage affects them.

What I have never understood is why the CRASStians seem to think that straight marriages can be "threatened" by any form of same-sex marriage...

I sorta like the idea of polyandry, myself....tee-hee!

I know what you mean, Daniel, the same happens with false claims of rape or battering. Makes it tougher on the actual assaulted ones.

GC, nice infografic!

On a different note, here is another hoax victim of antigay persecution / gaybashing.  This was a young British man who posted his supposed "gay bashed" photo, when what he really did was get drunk and fall on the sidewalk. 

This behavior really angers me.  There have been many hoax gay-bashings.  Those hoaxes take away credibility and give ammunition to homophobes, and cause compassion fatigue / mistrust.  I hate that.

July 1, 1974, when I bought my home, I couldn't sign ... my Dad signed for me. 

Oct. 08, 1979, The first conviction; "According to the old common-law rule, a man who forces his wife to have sexual intercourse with him cannot be convicted of rape.The celebrated Rideout case in Salem, Ore., late last year resulted in the acquittal of Husband John accused of rape by his wife Greta. Attitudes are changing, however. Last week, in another Salem, in Massachusetts, James K. Chretien was convicted of raping his estranged wife Carmelina. He is believed to be the first American ever convicted of wife rape.

Law: Wife Rape

We have made great progress in the past 40 years; however, there are many social problems that need to be corrected. Expecting time to heal all ills is a waste. Face the issues head on, prepare for the criticism, blaming and threats. Those who want justice must forego peace to get justice. Hopefully, our great aspirations will be matched with our laws and customs.

Same sex marriage is right on top of the list, along with woman's right to control her own body without interference from religious or politicians making medical decisions without the consult of woman, her doctor and her spiritual counselor.

That's a great marriage poster, G Cat.  Thanks for sharing.
