Hurrah, gay marriage is now legal in Hawaii. Only problem is, at least one state senator who has been against it all along is now saying that the law doesn't pertain to bisexuals.
State senator Mike Gabbard, a Democrat, voted against the same-sex marriage bill a number of times, but his latest reason is particularly bi-phobic.
In the passage of the same-sex laws, the Hawaii lawmakers “seem to have forgotten their bisexual brothers and sisters.” He declared that bisexuals would not be allowed to marry.
Where he was wrong in his interpretations is that bisexuals do not need two partners to be satisfied, and in fact, bisexuals are not all polygamists (needing to marry both genders) to be happy.
The Hawaiian Republicans were at the forefront of the bi-phobia, sponsoring radio ads telling listeners: "The same-sex legislation is merely a stepping stone to have government forcibly legitimize and normalize all sorts of deviant behavior. Terrible consequences will affect everyone and everything imaginable forever."
Then, they warn: "bisexual marriage is right around the corner."
