Maryland, Marriage, Appliance: 'What's to stop a woman from marrying a computer?'

by Jeremy Hooper

Since Maryland's anti-equality forces are ramping up their efforts to stop basic fairness in that state, I thought it'd be fun to remind folks of what one of that movement's top guys, Protect Marriage Maryland's Robert Broadus, said while speaking at an official New York campaign rally (hosted by NYFRF) this past spring. For the second time this year, Broadus repeated the claim that same-sex marriage is opening the door to human-on-robot unions:

"What's to stop a woman from marrying a computer?"

I mean I guess it's possible. But these kinds of unions would never last, as the sex would surely prove mechanical.

No word if the so-called Maryland Marriage Alliance will adopt this fear in its official 2012 campaign ads. I would ask my Siri to make a prediction, but she's down at the marriage licensing office with her girlfriend (aka my car's GPS). So happy, those two.
