NOM's new meme: 'This is marriage' (*or a gender neutral bathroom sign)

by Jeremy Hooper

In its latest attempt to get its supporters to do the least they could do—literally, the very least—to stop equality from its obvious inevitability, the National Organization For Marriage is now asking Facebook users to share this simplistic graphic:

Could be a marriage, I guess. Or a one night stand. Or a symbol for a two-spirit person who feels both a feminine and masculine wholeness. Or a sign representing a gender neutral bathroom. I mean, all we have here are two stick figures, one of which is gendered with a boxy dress. Nothing here necessarily means marriage, and none of it suggests that this childishly simple equation is the only acceptable configuration.

But that's our NOM: Insistent, reductive, and myopic. This shallow worldview might hold some so-limited-its-quaint charm, were it not so darn discriminatory.
