Have you seen the new Volkswagen commercials where the selfish VW owner tells the neighbor and/or friend admiring his new car: “You can’t have the same car as me!”

Each and every time I see one of these commercials it reminds me of the ridiculous talking points of people who oppose same-sex marriage.

Both stories go something like this: If other people can have the same thing I have (e.g. marriage, car), somehow it makes my thing less important, less special or less cool.

In the case of the VW commercial, it’s actually intended¬†to be funny.

With same-sex marriage opponents, it just comes across that way.
