An artist duo called The Art Guys, each of whom is already legally married, is marrying an oak sapling in a piece of performance art called The Art Guys Marry a Plant
Now I'm all for poly marriages, as long as all of the partners are consenting adults, and I'm all for tree loving. It seems to me that people who fall in love/lust with plants or inanimate objects in some ways have it easier than most people. I'm assuming they don't have to worry about unrequited love.
But these guys are not in a poly relationship, it seems they've not asked or received their wives' permission for this stunt, and they don't love the tree or even want to be around it.In this article
one of The Art Guys is asked about the gay marriage debate: "I don't even care about that," says Galbreth of the gay-marriage issue. "It doesn’t even warrant discussion. I'm happy that the issue is out there because it helps promotes us, in a crude sense, when the people mistakenly think that it's a political gesture, which to my mind, it's not."
Until now, I've never understood how the conservative Christians could believe that same sex couples wishing equal civil recognition of their partnership and/or a religious blessing of their partnership was in any way an affront or threat to them or their marriage. But I get it now. This is what it feels like when someone makes a mockery of an institution I cherish and value so highly I'm willing to fight for my right to partake in it.
The Art Guys are fucking douche-bag trolls who mock marriage between two people, poly marriages and people with plant/object fetishes. Now I've gone and given them more attention, but I sure hope no one gives them any money for this repulsive stunt.
