From Joe Grabowski
We've all heard the argument that marriage redefinition won't affect your marriage or my marriage, right? Or maybe you've made that argument yourself?
Well, for once some refreshing honesty on that subject, from journalist Masha Gessen (who legally 'married' her same-sex partner in Massachusetts in 2004):
"It’s a no-brainer that we should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. [cheers from the audience]
That causes my brain some trouble. And part of why it causes me trouble is because fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there—because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie. The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life."
So, what was this about a bridge for sale?
