Aziz Ansari doesn't have a problem with same-sex marriage, but he loves reading ridiculous arguments against it. (1:27)

THANKS, MAN.I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU.

UM, YEAH, SO I GREW UP IN SOUTH CAROLINA,

AND I THINK GROWIN' UP DOWN THERE

IT'S MADE ME ALWAYS KIND OF FASCINATED

BY LIKE RED STATE THINKING.

LIKE I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH GAY MARRIAGE,

BUT I LOVE READING ARGUMENTS AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE.

I FIND 'EM REALLY FASCINATING.

LIKE THIS IS MY FAVORITE ONE OF ALL TIME.

IT'S FROM THIS GUY NAMED SENATOR JOHN CORNYN FROM TEXAS.

THIS IS HIS ARGUMENT AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE.

I'M NOT MAKING THIS UP. HE GOES:

"NOW IF YOUR NEIGHBOR MARRIES A BOX TURTLE--

[LAUGHTER]

THAT DOESN'T AFFECT YOUR EVERY DAY LIFE,

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S RIGHT."

WHAT?

[LAUGHTER, CHEERS, & APPLAUSE]

WHAT AN INTERESTING NUGGET OF WISDOM THAT IS.

NOW I MYSELF WASNOT A PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR,

BUT I THINK IT'SPRETTY SAFE TO ASSUME ATONE POINT OR ANOTHER

SENATOR JOHN CORNIN'S THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING LOVE

TO A BOX TURTLE, BECAUSE I'M SORRY,

BUT THAT'S NOT THEFIRST ANIMAL YOU JUMP TO

WHEN YOU'RE WRITING THAT ANALOGY.
