New York Marriage Equality Will Lead to Anarchy?

Apparently that is what former New York Giants receiver, David Tyree, thinks. In an article posted by CNN on June 17, 2011, Tyree steps into the political scene by announcing his opposition to same-sex marriage in the form of an appearance in a video released by the National Organization for Marriage on the same day as the New York State Assembly approved the same-sex marriage bill.

The part that I found most intriguing about David Tyree’s opposition was his reasoning that “same-sex parents are ill-equipped to raise a child of the opposite sex.” I can only assume from this argument that Mr. Tyree is also opposed to single parent households, adoptive, biological, or step parents raising children of another race, ethnicity, or nationality, and a number of other barriers that prevent a parent from understanding exactly what their child is going through. Given that same-sex couples, along with those parents aforementioned, are already raising our nation’s well adjusted and healthy youth, I do not see the validity in this argument.
