One of the biggest slanders the left wing makes against people who are against gay marriage is that we are homophobic. That couldn't be further from the truth. I don't care what two people do in their own bedroom as long as the door is locked and the shades are pulled down and the radio is turned up really loud. What I object to is the word "marriage." First gay people took the word "gay," which used to mean happy and now can't be used by anyone to mean that and now they want to do the same thing to the word "marriage." For some reason gay people seem to want to steal all of our vocabulary. That's why I have a suggestion. Instead of calling it "gay marriage" why not call it "gay mariage" spelled and pronounced the way French people spell and pronounce it (like mah-ree-azh but with a funny r). This way everyone would instantly know, at least in English-speaking countries, that gays were talking about gay marriage and there would be no chance of confusion with the normal kind. In France and some parts of Canada, the word would sound exactly the same but it seems to me that French and French-Canadian people wouldn't care as much so I don't think it would be a problem. I think gay people might even prefer saying "mariage," which actually sounds gayer anyway. I think this is a solution that would make everybody happy (but not gay!).
