In Ben Shapiro’s latest incoherent rant, he has suggested, without a hint of irony, that Martians would oppose same-sex marriage
Someone needs to tell Ben, not only that married gay couples can have children, but that you don’t actually need to be married to make a baby.
Conservative podcaster and common-sense irritant Ben Shapiro served some other-worldly words of wisdom about same-sex marriage on Wednesday (November 17), by suggesting that aliens would be against it.
The topic came around as the US Senate debates legislation that would codify the rights of same-sex and interracial married couples into federal law.
Yesterday (November 16) the Senate surpassed the 60-vote filibuster threshold required to pass the legislation into the upper chamber of Congress and advance the bill to its next crucial stage.
During a natter on The Ben Shapiro Show, alongside fellow Daily Wire writer and anti-transgender activist Matt Walsh, Shapiro lamented the “societal rule that the only rationale that you would possibly have for saying that a marriage is between a man and a woman is because [of] … sincere religious belief” rather than any non-religious arguments to weaponize reproduction.
“That’s really the only reason at all,” he said. “That the only reason – we’ll allow you to have these crazy beliefs so long as you can show that they’re crazy beliefs. So long as you can show that the reason you believe a marriage is between a man and a woman is because you read it in a book, and because you really believe the book – they keep saying sincere religious belief.”
“I don’t even know how you measure sincere religious belief,” he said.
“I’m highly annoyed by the constant derogation of non-religious arguments into religious arguments. This is what the left loves to do.”
“You could be a visitor from Mars, and you could see that all of human procreation relies on man, woman, child,”
“The argument for marriage has literally nothing to do with religion,” he continues.
“You could be a visitor from Mars and you could see that all of human procreation relies on man/woman/child. This is not particularly difficult stuff. By essentially boxing in the argument in favor of traditional marriage into ‘Well if you’re a crazy religious believer, maybe we’ll let you have that.’”

Shapiro’s list of credits, among other things, include arguing homosexuality should remain in the DSM as a mental illness, saying he thinks “homosexual activity is a sin”, saying that being transgender is a mental illness, and calling Elliot Page‘s coming out “awkward,” “creepy,” “disgusting” and “pathetic.
And that’s the cuter end of the scale.
Obviously, the internet had some thoughts on his
insane reach at a point unique analogy.
Trans activist Katy Montgomerie tweeted in a reply, “Even Matt Walsh looks bored and embarrassed with this bullshit”.

Ben needs to understand that marriage and having kids have nothing to do with each other. I can have kids without signing a piece of paper for the government and I can sign that piece of paper and never have kids.

What is the right wing fascination with procreation? Isn’t 8 billion people enough?

Ben Shapiro: “I only believe in straight marriage.”
Alien: “What the hell is a “marriage?” All of us share a collective bond via the cyber biomass. Now, excuse me. I’m draining your star for spaceship fuel. After talking to you, it’s clearly not serving any good purpose here.”

I live my entire life by the mantra WWAT (What would Aliens think) and then I just decide what they would think based on what I want!

So, Ben, if I choose not to father children then I shouldn’t be married? Are you telling me that marriage is solely for producing offspring? What about those couples that cannot have children during to medical conditions? Should they not be married also?

Apparently Ben invites children to the procreation process? Weird flex.
