Give this girl an honest listen. I have yet to come across music that moves me more than my darling Emmy.
Her newest recording is amazing: Call The Rain Down

Well, I'm working on a proposal for a book about marriage equality. And I'm trying to discuss the "marriage is for procreation" objection as a fallacious syllogism, but I can't figure out what kind it is, mostly because I can't figure out exactly what "for" means.
Marriage is for procreation.
Same-sex couples cannot procreate.
Therefore same-sex couples should be forbidden to marry.
Now, I know that this is a flawed syllogism, because look:
Books are for reading.
Jane cannot read.
Therefore Jane should be forbidden to buy books.
Baseball caps are for shielding the head from the sun.
Today the clouds are covering the sun.
Therefore people should be forbidden to wear baseball caps today.
But I can't figure out which kind of flaw it is (undistributed middle, illicit process, etc.).
