I'm Not A Kitchen Appliance!!

What is it with those that oppose same sex marriage, otherwise know as marriage equality, when they feel like dancing around religious indignation they suddenly start pulling out the argument of "Marriage to me is a word with specific meaning. To call something else by the same name is, I believe, a problem in semantics, confusing and illogical. Insisting on calling different things by the same name is to lose the language." (emphasis added) as if people and their love for each other are like an kitchen appliance or some other inanimate household object?  This is something that really gets under my skin and makes my blood boil. I mean I really just can't comprehend how some one can talk about other people like that!
