Gay people have strange, strange powers over straight people

Maggie Gallagher at the National Review asks us:

Is it mere coincidence that this resurgence in illegitimacy happened during the five years in which gay marriage has become (not thanks to me or my choice) the most prominent marriage issue in America — and the one marriage idea endorsed by the tastemakers to the young in particular?

This is of course nothing more than a stunningly stupid example of confusing correlation with causation.

But let’s assume it is true. Also, let’s ignore the fact that the entire concept of an “ïllegitimate child” is quite anachronistic and that maybe – just maybe – the level of responsibility among parents has not changed and it is simply the case that more long term couples are opting out of marriage.

What is the mechanism by which gay people or advocacy for gay marriage causes heterosexual couples to have more illegitimate kids? Do they just get stressed out and break down every time they hear someone advocating for gay marriage and this leads them to have more unprotected sex before marriage? Did Sarah Palin’s daughter see a news story about the gay marriage debate and got an uncontrollable urge to fuck her boyfriend’s brains out without protection? Or does the act gay men and women having sex itself put out negative psychic vibes that affect the psyche of heterosexual couples in such a way that it causes them to be irresponsible? Feel free to take a stab at this yourselves.
