Republican in the Tennessee State Legislature are so crazy that the gays and they can marry theirs The homophobic solution has opened an even bigger worm box. A Couple of bills introduced in the House of Representatives and Senate (HB233 and SB 562). to establish a new type of marriage between only one man and only one woman in the state. Lawmakers neglected in both chambers add any age of consent, open the state to child marriage, provided the children have the right body parts.

“There is no explicit age limit,” says Rep. Tom Leatherwood (R), who introduced the House bill, told WJHL11. The bill especially however, prohibits incestuous marriages, so it looks like age requirements will be abolished by this new breed of marriages marriage was a choice.

Bill authors call it a “record of the joint marriage contract.” LOh”, what basically creates a separationate class of marriage in tennessee for the heterosexuals. There’s no reason for that – other than overt homophobia – because straight people already have access to marriage licenses in the state. The legislation spends a lot of time pelting the reader with constitutional amendments and trying to dismantle them Obergefell v. Hodgesthe 2015 Supreme Court decision that legalized marriage equality.

One would think that Republican PArty worried about “Care” and rampant crimes against children would mean that they wanted to protect children’s right not to marry adults. You would think, at a time when GOP politicians have taken to the calling literally anyone who disagrees with them in politics a pedophile that they were aware enough not to “accidentally” legalize child marriage now. But instead, children’s rights can be yet another sacrifice conservative politicians are willing to make to eliminate queer people from legal, if not scientific, existence.
