Redefining marriage ultimately legitimises a broad range of atypical sexual behaviours, neutering cultural restraints, regardless of broader community standards. It is the ultimate weapon of change. Marriage as an institution and standard has restrained the promotion and indulgence of homosexuality, ephebophilia, pedophilia, polyamory, polygamy and others for decades.
Many pornographers, sexual anarchists and the victims of atypical sexuality formation have devoted their lives to this process. Motivated by profit, ideology or simply reacting from personal pain, they have seen great success. Now they are working to see it happen here too, yet the agenda is being frustrated, resisted and blocked.
