FINALLY, proof that gay marriage is, in fact, not unnatural at all. It's just as normal and....predictable...I guess as straight ones.
I just read today that Julie and Hillary Goodridge, the lead plantiffs in the 2003 lawsuit brought in Massachusetts on gay marriage, have separated. I am not at all meaning to make light of their situation...if anything I'm making light of gay marriage opponents. (I don't think I'm making fun of them...that wouldn't be nice.)
The one way that this one might be different than...I don't know maybe 80% of the straight (or is glum the opposite of gay?) marriages. The article talks about how the women are focused and concerned about the welfare of that daughter (saying it of course isn't much different than a straight message)....my bet is both Julie and Hillary actually mean it, are committed to it and will live upt to it, THAT'S the part that's different.
Perhaps being open, honest and expressed through challenging times, separating but staying committed overall and living up to it is the thing that gay marriage opponents (aka just about every religious institution functioning) is just unnatural to folks who have no idea how to do that, perhaps that's what they're referring to when they say gay marriage is unnatural. In that case, I think I'd take life with a healty dose of an artifical life over the natural one they talk about any day of the week.
