The last taboo? Gay polygamy. International interspecies gay polygamy.
Gay marriage, the gateway to polyandry, polygamy and bestiality. A slippery slope indeed!

Which proves marriage is the gateway to bestiality. Ban marriage!

It starts with marriage and eventually you have people marrying structures!

My boar-loving niece has informed us that he is actually my boar-loving nephew. I'd suggest you could gay marry him, but he likes girls.

Parliament in Germany Approves Same-Sex Marriage - The New York Times

Lawmakers in Germany voted on Friday to allow same-sex marriage after a brisk but emotional debate in Parliament, setting the stage for the country to join more than a dozen European nations — including Ireland, France and Spain — in legalizing such unions.

The historic decision came with a swiftness rare in Germany’s usually staid politics, after Chancellor Angela Merkel unexpectedly eased her conservative party’s opposition to gay marriage and said she would allow lawmakers to vote their conscience on the measure, although she ultimately voted against it.

Just returned home from attending the wedding of my sister and her long-time girlfriend in Ohio. The participants were resplendent in their fines t-shirts, jeans and pristine, fresh-out-of-the-box tennis shoes, and the officiant - John Berlin, the mayor of Salem, Ohio - was as affable and awesome as could be.

This was my first time meeting my new sister-in-law's family, and they're quite terrific.

Ohio is something of a wingnut shithole, so the elected branches of government may never have done the right thing. That being true, big ups to an old Republican white man named Anthony Kennedy, U.S. Supreme Court associate justice and long-time friend of civil rights for gay folk in the United States,1 for helping make my sister and her one-and-only so happy.

1 Dubebro authored the majority opinions Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003) (invalidating Texas statute criminalizing gay sex) and Romer v. Evans, 517 U.S. 620 (1996) (invalidating state constitutional provision barring state and local governments from conferring "protected status" on homosexuals), and both authored the majority opinions and provided the deciding votes in United States v. Windsor, 570 U.S. 744 (2013) (invalidating provision of DOMA defining marriage to include only opposite-sex unions) and Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. ___ (2015) (invalidating same-sex marriage bans in four states, including Ohio)

Taiwan has become the first Asian country to legalize gay marriage: Taiwan legalizes same-sex marriage in historic first for Asia - CNN

Gay couples still don't have all the rights that straight couples do, but this makes it pretty close.

According to polls from the past four years, same sex marriage has majority support in some other Asian countries and territories: Thailand (59%), Israel (58%), Cambodia (55%), Japan (51%) and Hong Kong (50%). However, Cambodia's constitution bans same sex marriage. Trends in Vietnam and South Korea suggest they may have majority support in the near future. If you were going to guess, you'd probably guess that Thailand or Israel would be the second country, but they both have conservative governments. Japan might in the near future (one poll found support as high as 87% among Japanese in their 20s), but they also have a conservative government. South Korea has a center-left government, but lower support.

It might be then that the most likely is Nepal (polling data not available), which had a supreme court ruling that they must change laws to remove discrimination against gay people all the way back in 2007, and to study same-sex partnership law in other countries, etc. But the government there has dragged their feet for quite a long time, obviously, but they haven't explicitly declared that they won't abide by the court's ruling either. Apparently last summer they said they were drafting legislation to legalize it, and then nothing came of it yet again.
