'JUST SAY NO': It's our relationships they're after, not just our marriages

by Jeremy Hooper

This telling sign was spotted today in Richmond, VA, where protesters are demonstrating against gay people's marriages:

201405131037

Note the demonstrator isn't just "X"-ing out our rings or our licenses or some other wedding ephemera. No, no—this sign "Just says no" to our coupling. Our relationships. Us.

You scratch the anti-equality movement for just a short time, and you always find this to be true. This movement will never stop at just marriage because they don't see their fight as ending there. They of course will have to stop, because they are losing and losing hard. But let's be clear: it won't be for lack of desire.
