'Proctect' Marriage Maine

by Jeremy Hooper

I've always wondered what groups like "Protect Marriage Maine" are really trying to do, since protection itself seems like a really silly goal. But now It finally makes sense. Turns out they're not trying to protect at all—they are actually hoping to "proctect":

(*appears at top of all PMM webpages)

Now, I can't find an actual definition of "proctect," so I'm just going to assume it's some little known verb that means "to make more discriminatory." Right? Because let's face it, making marriage an alienating rather than unifying institution is precisely what the peace-hostile PMM is trying to do. So clearly the word "proctect" is some sort of secret code word that is little known outside of anti-equality circles. It's gotta be. I'm sure of it!

Thanks for slipping up and unwittingly giving us this insight, PMM. Now every time you say "Protect," I'm gonna be like, "Ohhhhhhhh…yeahhhhhhh…protect….surrrrrrre…uhhuh…[::wink, wink::]." Will do that more than I already did, I mean.
