Quote# 51844

I know you guys want me to either call it discrimination or rephrase it in such a way as to appear unable to accept your point of view on what reality is.

I'll offer you this: If a ban on homosexual marriage is discriminatory against homosexuals, then a ban on necrophilia is discriminatory on necrophiliacs.

If you can accept the latter, then I'll accept the former in the same spirit.

Yes.

Necrophilia, however, is illegal and non-consensual and immoral.

Homosexuality, by itself, is none of us. this.

The difference is that dead people can't consent to sex. Gay people can. This difference is what makes necrophilia wrong, while homosexuality is not.

CONSENT, ASSHOLE!

Theoretically, what if your will said that a necrophiliac could have sex with your corpse?

There is a major difference between consensual sex between two living adults and cracking open a cold one

You're fucking sick.

Corpses can't consent.

Before you bring it up, neither can minors nor animals.

Wanna try again?

Yucky! Okay, dead people cannot give consent. Analogy not accepted. Blech!

Necrophilia is a deviant obsession. Homosexuality isn't. So, fuck off.

What the fuck is wrong with these people?

Actually I don't have a big issue with Necrophilia. It's just a slab of meat at that point, and pretty much victimless unless discovered. Also, it's kind of nice that they didn't go with animals like they usually do.

Before you bring it up though, no you cant marry a dead guy, just like you can't sell a house to a dead guy because marriage is a contractual state.

Isn't the big difference that in order to be a necrophiliac you either have to be a grave robber or a murderer. I know of no gay people that have to do either thing to have sex.

Hmm, it seems like you accidentally admitted to being a necrophiliac.

Um...sorry. Didn't mean to post twice.

At what point do they pick up on the whole "informed consent" thing? Why is this missing from their vocabulary?

"To life, to life, I'll bring them
I'll bring all these dead men to life
I've a genius with chemicals
(Also polemicals)
Yes, it's true, there's been strife"

Well, Herbert West might be able to get consent.

I'll offer you this: If a ban on homosexual marriage is discriminatory against homosexuals, then a ban on necrophilia is discriminatory on necrophiliacs.

I've got a proposal for you: I'll accept Communion just as soon as you accept Jeffrey Dahmer eating Human flesh out of his freezer. Do we have a deal?

I think this is an important distinction but not in the way that he intends it. For the rest of us, I think we have to acknowledge that trying to argue it as discrimination to people who think that homosexuals are inherently evil/dirty/sinful/etc. is a losing battle. No matter how negative a word "discrimination" usually is for us, we have to come to acknowledging that they *want* to discriminate against gay people, that that's their whole point. Imagine trying to argue with a middle-aged white man in Georgia in 1925 that some policy against blacks was discriminatory. You wouldn't get anywhere. This guy has the same amount of inherent bias, he just recognizes that the word "discrimination" is so loaded anymore that he refuses to call a duck a duck.

Allegory for Jesus

"If a ban on homosexual marriage is discriminatory against homosexuals, then a ban on necrophilia is discriminatory on necrophiliacs."

That's a new one. Here's a tip: homosexuality doesn't require one to be participating in potentially illegal activity (grave robbing, murder, tampering with a crime scene) in order for it to be indulged in. An outright ban on necrophilia is discriminatory in a manner, yes. But, it is only discriminatory because it is the protecting other rights that would infringed upon if there were not such protections in place. And, guess what? There is no such need for those protections when two consulting adults decide to do it in the butt!

Gross - a dead body can't consent.

Corpses can't give consent. And since you're legally brain-dead, neither can you. Nobody touch Neo Britannica! Ever! It counts as rape.

Well honestly, a ban on necrophilia is discriminatory against necrophiliacs. However, this is where the issue becomes more interesting. Necrophilia is one of the many paraphilias listed as a mental disorder. Thus, as someone who wishes to engage in necrophilia is medically considered unwell, thus to legalize actions based on the desires of a group of mentally unwell persons would be unwise.

However, if at some later point necrophilia is determined to be a natural and healthy state for a person to be in, much like homosexuality, the ban on necrophilia might have to be raised.

No, a ban on homosexual marriages is like a ban on interracial marriage. Both of which are WRONG.
