ADF confuses itself with Webster's, own echo chamber with America

by Jeremy Hooper

Well that'll show us! They name a limited reality that doesn't match fact, make it look like an official definition, couple it with a properly pink/blue pair of stick figures, then slap their logo on the whole shebang? Then f*** me—I gotta out of this debate! How can I ever compete with such compelling discourse?! So strong. So powerful. It's completely destroyed everything I know to be true. Game over. I'm taking my heretofore legal marriage and giving up on the whole thing, both personally and politically. A sad day for pro-equality activists everywhere. The ADF just won. [::le sigh:]

I kid. This exceedingly silly attempt to define by limitation is as myopic as the organization that created it; it's as aggressively ignorant as all of the other talking points that this movement wrongly considers to be persuasive.

The truth is that the ADF can have, hold, and share whatever limited definition they want. They do not, however, have the power to create their own legal vocabulary that we must all blindly follow. The constitution follows a higher standard than whether or not one of the stick figures is wearing a dress.
