Because they are freely available. Children's charities such as Barnardos, and the Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC), are calling strongly for a Yes vote in Friday's Referendum on Marriage Equality in Ireland.
They believe, in their expert opinion and experience, that a Yes result on May 22nd will be the best thing for Ireland's children. As do the country's top psychologists...
Right thinking folk would take the expert advice and just get out and vote Yes. Even the major political parties are agreeing - that's gotta be a first right? Everywhere we look now we can see posters from Fine Fail, Fine Gael, the Labour Party and Sinn Fein... all with the same message. Vote Yes. For Equality.
The No campaign is banging their tin drum very loudly though. Some people are unsure, doubtful, confused. Nobody wants to be viewed as a bigot, or a homophobe, but their fears and confusion are being played on by a professionally manipulative and well funded campaign.
Let's simplify. On Friday 22nd May you, an Irish citizen resident in Ireland, can vote to decide if:
Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex.
A No Vote says you do NOT believe that other Irish citizens should have the same rights and legal protection that you, your friends, family and your children all enjoy. Unless they are straight hetrosexuals.
Are they all straight? Do you know what they do in the privacy of their bedrooms? Do you know who they love? Look at your family right now. Your colleagues, your companions, your club members. Do you know for sure they are all straight up hetrosexual? Do you care?
If just one of them is Lesbian, or Gay, or Bisexual, or Transexual (LGBT)... do you really care? Is it any of your business?
Really, it's not. It's none of your business. People are people and love is love, and what goes on in people's homes between consenting adults is NOBODY ELSE'S BUSINESS.
And yet you get to decide. You get to decide whether these people get the same human rights as you currently enjoy, without even having to think about it. That's your right, and your privilege. That's a big responsibility.
Flip the scenario a little - Do you know anyone who isn't white? A person of a skin colour that is different to your own?
What if the choice was whether that person gets to marry the person they love, regardless of skin colour? I hope you wouldn't even dream of denying them their rights.
I hope you're not THAT person.
And yet it's the same question for LGBT people who want to get married. People who want to raise families, who have children they love, children they want to keep safe and secure, legally protected the same as every other Irish child.
Because these families already exist. They are your neighbours, your colleagues, your community. A Yes Vote will NOT take anything from families, couples and children who are already protected.
Your Yes Vote will change nothing - except for families who have an LGBT member or members already, whether that's the parents or the children.
A Yes Vote tells Ireland's LGBT community (10% of our population, at least) - tells all of our fellow adult and teenage LGBT citizens that they are that little bit safer, that little bit more respected.
Voting Yes on Friday tells your fellow Irish citizens that you see them as Equal to you. If they want to get married to the person they love, they can get married. That's it.
You Vote Yes, and Irish people get to marry each other.
In lovely, happy, joyful, fabulous (and possibly kinda gay) weddings. Weddings! Joy!
