'A couple is a couple is a couple': Quoting NOM's quotable

by Jeremy Hooper

On its organizational Facebook wall, NOM is running the following quote:

To which I will only add this 2010 exchange between this same Diane Sollee and National Public Radio's Michel Martin:

MARTIN: Do the same [marriage education] skills apply to same-sex couples? Because I'm sure some people will…

Ms. SOLLEE: Yeah.

MARTIN: …be asking this, too. They'll say, well, that might be fine, because, you know, men are from Mars, women are from Venus, if you buy into that.

Ms. SOLLEE: No, no, no.

MARTIN: But do you think the same issues apply to same-sex marriage?

Ms. SOLLEE: I don't have to think it. We always have workshops at the conference on same-sex relationships and taught by, you know, same-sex couples are attending. And we have research. I mean, a couple is a couple is a couple. And you're trying to make a lifelong loving team. And, you know, take advantage of the differences and different perspectives that each of you bring. And to learn how to integrate change because, you know, you're going to change along the way.

"A couple is a couple is a couple"? Weird, I don't remember that quote ever hitting NOM properties. Quite the opposite, in fact.

But then again, if your goal is to help improve the world through your own heterosexist vision, cherry-picking is as good a tactic as any to start "culture wars."
