Subject and verb no longer in agreement, NOM turns to punctuation

by Jeremy Hooper

You start with the false claim that marriage is being "redefined." You then argue against that fake point by claiming that instead of being "redefined," marriage should instead earn extra punctuation that emphasizes its importance. You next find a stock photo of a Russian couple, shot by a Russian photographer who also gladly features photos of (and seemingly recognizes the worth of) gay couples as well. Add it all up and you get NOM's latest argle-bargle-laden attempt at a meme:

I've been with my husband for eleven years, and we've been legally married for over five years. We don't do any underlining, and we certainly don't do any redefining. Instead, we just love the heck out of each other, commit to our partnership in every way, find new ways to help each other whenever we can, and strive to create happier, better, more peaceful, and more successful lives for ourselves and our kids.

The real problem, of course, is that NOM and the pro-discrimination organization's allies think they—and only they—get to write the sentence for all of us. They are not working to underline anything. Instead, they are demanding we all place a period where they say we must. And that's NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
