Same Sex What?
So...apparently there is a type of relationship called "bi-national same sex couples". I learn something new, everyday. Now I HAVE heard of bi-national relationships. A bi-national relationship is when a person of another nationality has a relationship with an American citizen, with intent to marry. The American "Sponsors" the foreigner, allowing them to stay in the United States for longer periods of time, potentially indefinitely until they gain dual citizenship or full citizenship.
The gay community is upset that the United States Government does not honor a Same Sex Sponsorship. A man cannot sponsor a man, a woman cannot sponsor a woman. This means that the American cannot have a gay lover that is foreign move in and expect to become a member of society. "For the federal government to recognize homosexual pairs in any way, shape, or form is a violation of the federal Defense of Marriage Act." CNN.com
First Question: The United States is a country that is openly opposed to same sex marriage. Always has been, and majority rule, still is. What would make you ASSUME that the LAWS of a foreign nation will bend to your sexual preference. The LAW does not state that same sex marriages are legal, so why would you expect it to be different for you? Because you aren't American? Too bad. Go back to your country and then your rules apply. Sorry.
Second Question: (Follows Statement) Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, who is openly gay, is a co-sponsor of the House version of the bill allowing ILLEGAL bi-national same sex couples the same rights as LEGAL couples. Then they go on to say..."We're not asking for anything special..."
Not asking for anything special? First off.. aren't they asking for something special by requesting resources that are desperately needed to deal with our financial cluster fuck. Second off, aren't you asking for something special by... Asking a NATION at CRISIS to changes minor laws for FOREIGNERS?
I do understand that people want to be happy. And if you are happy with a same sex person from out of the country, you best find a way around it. It isn't legal. Until it is, deal with it. Sorry the country is so FUCKED that we don't have time for your frivolous issues.
In my country, homosexuality is not legal. Most countries around the world have similar viewpoints, so there must be something to it. Maybe the world isn't ready for open homosexuality?
