Who Is Fighting For Marriage? Just Marriage.


With the state of California looking (actually re-looking) into how it handles the seemingly always-controversial agenda of same-sex marriage, the idea of marriage as a whole is once again at the center of examination by this nation. It's quite astonishing how far this country has come in a mere few years. It wasn't very long ago when the majority of our nation was against the idea of legalizing same-sex union. However, here we are in what seems like a trend of a younger generation moving for "marriage equality". 

But as this movement progresses, and in some ways becoming the trendy thing to do, the issue of same-sex marriage has become the it - injustice-  that many are now picking up for. However, as I watch the legal proceedings and the comments, and the arguments, and the foundation slogans, and the Facebook and twitter movements, I wondered why marriage, the hetero-sexual kind, hasn't been focused on.

Now I know what you're thinking: "Because they already can get married, idiot!" 

True. However, this generation that seems to hold the issue of same-sex marriage at the highest of the highs when it comes to injustices, wrong doings, and societal failures, is the same exact generation that has proven and exemplified that marriage is not at that important to them. (Why is Marriage Becoming Obsolete in America).

I've always felt that one of the biggest issues facing our society today is the lack of fundamental values in raising children, and a lot of that has to do with the crumbling of the household structure. 

After all, the rise in single-mothers homes, fatherless children, and overall marriage-less households is alarming. 

The continuing trend of male children growing up without male role models is a point for immediate action. And the cycle continues as men continue to become less and less desirable for female counterparts. 

And how about the fact that 48% of children today are born to unmarried women? Almost half!  

This is touched on in an opinion article by David Frum on CNN.com where he lays out how the decline in marriage affects our future, most notably, the overall well-being of tomorrow's generation. 

I continue to find it fascinating how same-sex marriage has become the focus of today's society. However, as evident from the alarming statistics, and many of the outcomes and studies from Mr. Frum's article, the focus - and real issue at hand - is that of heterosexual marriage. 

Who's fighting for marriage? Just...marriage.

1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/8/17

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.
