Because that's what it is all about. To get people to pay up without anything in exchange. I'm not advocating prostitution, that's wrong even when it's properly managed.
No, I'm pissed off becaus the powers that be have carfully nurtured this little balance of love and hatred toward sex, that now, in the land of the free, we are even considering laws that prevent people from expressing the love they have for one another, just becase they're the same sex. It's confronted with angry stares and snotty gossip, sometimes even with violence. The excuse is that there is a sanctity in marriage between a man and a woman. Even if there is, that would make it a church problem, not a state problem. Though a church is normally where a marriage ceromony is held, the actual title of marraige is granted by the state. And this also brings in other religions besides Christianity, even athesits believe in marriage.
Which is precicley why there is a seperation between church and state (Though it's not like you'd really notice it.)
More and more people are starting to wake up and be true to themselves. More and more people are comming out, they are experimenting, they are seeing the world with open eyes and realising that it's not as simple or as complicated as they thought. It's somewhere in the middle. They realise that the world doesn't and shouldn't revolve around their principles.
If you are one of these newly awakened people, I urge you to please, help someone near you to wake up. I recently discovered that I am bisexual, and that has allowed me to meet someone who makes me happier than I have ever been. It's times like this that I'm reminded of the lyrics of John Lennon, "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us, so the world can live as one."
