Though if your partner has heartworm or parvo, you might be in luck

by Jeremy Hooper

This writer loves his partner. He also loves his shih tzu. And while all three individuals in his little family are currently insured, such might not be the case if he or his partner were employed by Florida's Palm Beach Community College. For at that particular institute of higher learning, the four-legged member of his family is apparently considered more deserving than the two-legged one:

Pets can get insurance at PBCC, partners can't [Palm Beach Post]
(H/t: P1Q)

Yes, this particular college has chosen to give employees discounted group medical insurance for their pets, yet has voted against extending similar benefits to the partners of gay employees. Yet another shortsighted development in the never ending quest for LGBT partner equality.

And that's not all either. If this path successful, we hear the school will next instill pet-based methods to keep gay students from looking at their neighbor's test paper:

Meincollar

Sheesh, PBCC. When we said "throw us a bone," we weren't being literal!
