Not just our rights: Maggie also wants to define our reasons why

by Jeremy Hooper
MaggieMaggie Gallagher, [former] president of the National Organization for Marriage, said for homosexual activists, gay marriage has never really been about marriage.

"Gay marriage is primarily about establishing an equality right," she said, "a moral narrative about equality in the law and the culture."

Oh, Maggie. You're so wrong, yet again. Everyone knows that we gays actually want marriage for the open bar, gifts, and excuse to take a lavish vacation. Duh! [::eye roll::]

We're still waiting on Maggie to tell us why we, an apparent monolith, have children, serve in the military, or dare to breathe the same air as heterosexual people. She just has to wait for her broad brush to dry before she can paint more stigmatized portraits.
