Audio: 'Well family, we have to pack up and move. The gay neighbors got married.'

by Jeremy Hooper

Phyllis Schlafly, grand dame of a movement built around skewing data so that inequality seems like a "value," is now claiming that beleaguered residents of marriage equality states are fleeing in order to escape the happiness in their midst:

Schlafly Claims 'Many Americans' Moving Out of Marriage Equality States In Protest [Right Wing Watch]

Please, please, PLEASE let this be one of the new lines they are going to use as they attempt to find whatever flicker might see them out of their desperate twilight. It's one thing when we claim, accurately, that many gay people (self included) would never again living in an anti-equality estate, as it's perfectly understandably why we would shy away from planting roots in a state that doesn't respect our truths. But if anti-gay straight people start claiming they are becoming increasingly transient simply because of other people's legally recognized commitments? Well, then they better go ahead and open a line of credit at U-Haul, as that's the kind of ludicrous talk that will help us win this thing even faster!
