The slippery slope is often described as a logical fallacy. The slippery slope argues that if we allow event A to occur then we will likely see a chain of related events (X,Y,Z) which become progressively worse over time until we reach some sort of bottom state. Progressives love to call out the right for executing this logical device in debate as a means of dismissing the argument being made against them. It begs to ask the question, “is it really a logical fallacy if indeed things do become progressively more decadent over time?” Grab your sleds ladies and gents and let’s go for a ride down the slippery slope.
Currently, the big debate is over the legalization of gay marriage in the United States. A few states have legalized homosexual civil unions and in some cases actual marriages. However, in most of the United States, gay marriage and civil unions are still currently illegal for the time being. This is the gate holding the floods back and it will be opened shortly. To be against gay marriage is to be a bigot (obviously). You are just simply inserting your religious agenda (isn’t marriage a religious institution?). Besides, if you really cared about the sanctity of marriage, then you stupid red state bigots should stop getting divorced at such high rates! Gay people are just normal people like you and I and they deserve equal rights!
Since the modern world has already effectively destroyed the institution of marriage (thanks feminism!) and conservatives today are hardly models for traditional living, the gays will win the battle and gay marriage will be legalized within the next decade I am predicting. Of course, it is sooo silly to say that if we allow gays to marry then people will be marrying their dogs! This is where the quest for equality ends… or does it?
Once World War G has been won, the next great cultural war will be World War T. The trannies are next in line for their fair share of Liberté et Égalité. From the great battle for which restroom to use to allowing children as young as 11 to undergo sexual reassignment. If you are against this, well you might as well be advocating the next Holocaust! Completely ignore the possibility that
forcing allowing children to undergo such a medical procedure may not be in the child’s best interest. Also, ignore the possibility that transgenderism may be due to autogynephilia (I love how RationalWiki puts mental illness in quotation marks… stay “rational” RW). Well, thank God that Facebook has embraced the progress. After the great tranny war is won and the bodies of bigots lay slain across the battlefield, what will be the next great cultural war?
Well since we already mentioned bestiality… meet Mr. Hands! Kenneth Pinyan was like any normal guy except he had a deep and dark secret. He loved the ponies… and not in the betting on horses kind of way either. Well after a rough night at the O.K. Corral, Mr. Pinyan died from internal bleeding from a perforated colon (ouch). Had Mr. Pinyan not been shamed by society to seek love in the dark underbelly of society, he may be alive today. Now the story of the love between a man and his horse is forever enshrined in Hollywood film. Why do evil bigots shame these people with your morals! If I consent to being sodomized by a stallion it is within my rights! This is America! This is about freedom! Fuck hate!
Well bestiality may be a tough sell… so how about some love of thyself? Narcissism is already rampant throughout the west and social media has only exacerbated the issue. Why not allowed people to marry themselves? It is certainly better than getting Eiffel Towered at the Kentucky Derby. Meet Grace. Grace loves herself so much that she decided to marry herself which is a nice way of saying that no man on Earth would marry this crazy bitch. Remember the good ole fashioned Baby Boomer advice that was bestowed on the younger generations: “just be yourself and someone will love you for who you are!” Poor Grace took the advice of her mommy and sadly, no one loves a post-wall, solipsistic, narcissistic, lunatic…
Perhaps instead of marrying herself, she could have had a relationship with her mommy! Meet The Sexxtons. They are a mother-daughter porn duo! I am honestly surprised that the folks at HuffPo were appalled by this (what a bigot, amirite?). I thought they were progressive! Check back in about 10 years at HuffPo or Salon and read the following headline: Mommy Dearest Knows Best: 7 Reasons Why You Should Marry Your Mother.
Alas, why must love wait? Don’t you guys worry! The ACLU is on the job! The fight for pedophilia could be the next great civil rights movement of our time! Who are you to deny the love that exists between a man and a prepubescent boy? You are probably one of those evil Bible thumping teabagger republiKKKans! I can see it now… The year is 2080 and the NAMbLA Caucus is pushing a vote to abolish all statutory rape laws in the United States fueled by the powerful slogan: “Pederasty is Love Too!” God bless democracy! Long live Weimerica!
Lord only knows how deep the rabbit hole goes… and then I found the Social Justice Warriors on Tumblr. It goes deep people. Have you heard of headmates? Abolish the mental institutions and let the schizophrenics run wild! How about ableism? If you just simply feel you are disabled, then you are! It’s not just for those who are actually physically/mentally disabled. Pretty soon shopping mall parking lots will all be handicap parking spaces. How about otherkin? Furries? It will be President Tundra IceFang, our first Furry president, who signs the NAMbLA Caucus bill that abolishes the statutory rape laws in 2080…
So what does ‘The Last Progressive’ look like? Does the madness ever end? or is this an endless continual decline into decadence? Is the slippery slope really a fallacy?
