Today UFC lightweight Josh Thomson posed an interesting, but ludicrous question on his Twitter that has already sparked a huge debate on the Underground:
Should you be allowed to marry whoever you want? Before you answer that, should u be allowed to have more than 1 wife?
read official Twitter...
Thomson expanded on his tweet in posts on his Facebook page, questioning whether or not allowing gay marriage would open the door to allowing other types of marriage that are socially questionable:
My next question is, should siblings be allowed to marry siblings? My point is, where do you draw the line? I personally don't care who you marry but I also am smart enough to know that it opens a gateway to men/women trying to marry young kids, siblings marrying eachother and people having multiple husbands an wives. You have to think all of these things are okay otherwise your stopping them from being happy as well which is hypocrisy. Equality doesn't stop with gay marriage, it just starts with it.
Blacks an whites getting married is nothing like this. So your okay with R. Kelly trying To marry lil girls? People trying to marry their brother or sister? Animals? Etc? Those people want the same exact thing, to be happy. Are you gonna tell them no?
It's unsure if Thomson is purposely trying to be provocative to fire up people in an intense discussion, or perhaps is ignorantly arguing his own point. Either way, the discussion has got people on Facebook, Twitter, & the Underground fired up. It will be interesing to see if Thomson's statements garner a reaction from his employer, the UFC, as last month fellow lightweight Nick Diaz was fined and suspended for UFC of a gay slur on Twitter.
