Mark Regnerus, the sociologist behind the thoroughly debunked study of gay parenting, gave a talk at Franciscan University in Ohio recently where he claimed that the acceptance of same-sex marriage will give straight men the excuse to cheat on their wives and demand anal sex.
We’re not there just yet but the bridge is being built. If gay marriage is perceived as legitimate by heterosexual women, it will eventually embolden boyfriends everywhere, and not a few husbands, to press for what men have always historically wanted but were rarely allowed: sexual novelty, in the form of permission to stray without jeopardizing their primary relationship. Discussion of openness in sexual partners in straight marriages will become more common, just as the practice of heterosexual anal sex got a big boost from the normalization of gay men’s sexual behavior in both contemporary porn and in the American imagination.
Holy non-sequiturs, Batman.
