As Thailand celebrates legalisation of same-sex marriage

As Thailand celebrates legalisation of same-sex marriage

It’s funny that while some governments  are battling to save their countries from drowning due to impact of poor economy, Thailand Senate got busy with ensuring that it legalised Same-sex Marriage.

That’s their major concern; na their own better ooo. With this, the country has made history as the first in Southeast Asia to approve same-sex marriage. Once the law takes effect, Thailand becomes the third Asian jurisdiction after Nepal and Taiwan to recognise gay marriage.

Trust LGBTQ community and advocates there, they called it ‘monumental step forward’. The advocates joined politicians to celebrate in the National Assembly, waving rainbow flags and their fists in solidarity with the LGBTQ community. Don’t be surprised to find out that majority of the advocates and those that passed that law are in heterosexual marriages. Lol!

Well, I’m sure this does not concern many of us. Herein lies our gross with all those who have chosen to live as gay. They have changed references to ‘men’, ‘women, ‘husbands’ and ‘wives’ to gender-neutral terms. The law also grants LGBTQ couples inheritance and adoption rights equal to those of heterosexual marriages. What? Adopt whose children? No vex ooo, please a child being brought up by two Thai women, how will they explain that the one representing his father is a woman?

Well, as Thailand celebrates a law many have termed an aberration, some Netizens have advised those the law favours to forget about adopting children from heterosexual marriages and begin to think of a scientific method to multiply. Wahala!

The rate at which LGBTQ law is sweeping across the world, we hope humans don’t wake up one day and find only one sex in existence. There will be no way to become ‘fruitful and multiply’. God forbid!
