These power trips and money battles of people like Kors and the Gay and Lesbian Center’s Lori Jean are something we just can’t afford anymore. The cost of serving their petty egos is just too high, in both human misery and scarce dollars. They need to, as an old and wise friend used to say, “get their egos in order” and become team players.
It’s very disturbing that such a lengthy article doesn’t even once correctly name its subject matter. Can you explain to me what a “gay marriage” is? Because I know plenty of same-sex couples who are married to each other and not a single one of them is in a “gay marriage.” They’re in a marriage. Period. We’re not fighting for “gay marriage.” We’re fighting for marriage. Are bisexual couples supposed to be in “gay” marriages, too? Or couples where one or both partners are transgender? This is not a trivial point, this is the entire point.
What we’re going to establish in California is marriage equality so that all eligible couples have the freedom to marry. That’s it. To call it anything else — anything it is not — is to deliberately play into anti-equality propaganda.
