'Briding' their time: NYC.gov didn't fully groom its HTML

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2011-07-05 At 3.21.16 PmThose same-sex couples who are heading over to NYC.gov to take advantage of the city's handy online marriage license application process might put on the genital-specific brakes. That's because the city has yet to update its system, so the applications still demand couples choose "groom" and "bride" roles

New York Times City Room blog:

The official online form, apparently unrevised, requires applicants to list both a “groom” and a “bride.”

City officials tell the Times that the system will be updated "later today." Which makes sense, as this writer's pretty sure he saw that site's programmer at the same late night Fourth of July party at which he was imbibing.

Take your time (and some B.C. headache powder), dude. Or dudette. Or "gender neutral programmer 1."
