No, but people who want to marry multiple people and people who fall in love with toasters are interchangeable. For the sake of equality. Let's call it marriage! We can celebrate by eating toast at the wedding.
Pedophiles across the nation rejoice!!! Now they can screw 5 y/o boys legally!!!!
See what happens when you don't think things out?
Yes, this isn't quite marriage now, is it? Even for the sake of equality. (I'm attracted to children. Why can't a marry a child! I'm an equal!) We can't change EVERYTHING someone may want in the definition of something, or else it loses the meaning in the first place, and could become dangerous. So where is the line?
I think we can move the line to include homosexuals when it comes to marriage - it does no bad. Include polygamists and it starts to get hazy, but I suppose we can allow it. This makes you uncomfortable, and I understand that. But we're grown-ups and we can make grown-up decisions. Can we allow things/people that aren't consenting adults? No. There's a line there.
