Your thoughts

I know this is meant to be a bit humorous and to point out the total irony of how ridiculous inequality is, but it totally breaks my heart just the same...is it so much to ask that we can be treated with the same kindness and dignity (and as such, be bestowed the same rights) as our straight neighbors and friends?

It's always a balance, Aya. You *should* be enraged. But if we can maintain sanity through laughter/irony, that's a good thing.

I came *this* close to doing the same thing here in Phoenix - I'm glad these folks did it!

This reminds me of the time my friend Amy married Dan Savage. During the ceremony they vowed never to live or sleep together and to continue their lives with their same sex partners. These were their marriage vows. And it was legal. It really does demonstrate how ridiculous our marriage laws are.

This is exactly what the RRRW want to see. Us knuckling under pressure. I don't like this at all. I went to Canada to marry my husband and I will go to any lengths short of murder so everyone else finally gets that same right.

I think it totally rocks! It proves that "traditional marriage" can be shallow and meaningless, and the idea that keeping some loving, committed couples from marrying and having full equal rights under marriage "keeps traditional marriage so damn special" is completly baseless.

Thanks for posting this, Jeremy.
