Slovenian new Family Code – Yes or No?

on March 23, 2012

So this weekend we are having referendum about the new Family Code. This has been going on for about two years now, and there are always some people that vote for it and some that vote against it, and then they argue about what’s wrong, what’s right and so on… It’s stupid if you ask me. They should stop arguing and just do something about it. Well now it looks like we’re finally going somewhere.
And what is so drastic and new that people here are arguing about?
Well it’s because the new code considers homosexuals almost as equal as heterosexuals. It’s not the same, but it’s quite close. If this Code will be accepted, then homosexuals will be able to sign legal papers that will prove their partnership, though they will not be able to get married. But these papers will still give them much more rights, actually almost as much as if they would get married. And what’s the most drastic change about it? They would be able to adopt a child. So yes, they would be able to live as a family, not only as partners.

What do I think about all this?
I think it’s great. As my friend Valerija Zabret said “You fall in love with a person, not with their genitalia.” And it’s true. And I think if this code get’s accepted homosexuals will be a bit more open and will not hide so much, and also many heterosexual people will probably change their view on this kind of relationships. There is still so many homophobic people, and that’s why I believe we really need a code like this, so people will get used to this and will stop being so judgemental about it.
And what’s the best part of it?
Well as I already said, homosexuals that will sign legal papers about their partnership, will be able to adopt children. Some people say that these kids will be bullied at school and everyone will be making fun of, but I disagree. If that would be the case it’s a problem how “normal parents” raise they children and it obviously shows that they teach their children to be racists. So it’s all about what you learn your kids. And on the other case, aren’t there all kids bullied in some way? Some are targets because they are fat, others are too skiny, then others wear glasses, others are geeks and so on… List is endless.

So yes, I support this new Family Code, because I believe it’s a step toward more equal and tolerant society.
