During it, when asked about equal marriage in Ireland, Conchita said:
“I have to say this whole equal marriage stuff annoys me to death because a perfect society for me will be when we don’t have to talk about sexual orientation, the colour of your skin or which religion you are”.
“This is so not important, and for me I don’t need to discuss whether gays are allowed to marry each other or not. It is a human right to love whoever you want to love, so I don’t need to talk about that.”
You’ve got to admit, she’s correct. After all, I’ve never understood why it’s anyone’s business who somebody loves or who they want to marry. As long as it’s between two consenting adults and isn’t hurting anyone, how is it anyone else’s business but theirs?
