  1. I know this isn't directly about Transgender, it does however still affect many of us.

  2. I am registered with the Independent Party. As such, I get mail from political action groups proposing this and that. Imagine my amusement that I was mailed a "Myths about Same Sex Marriage" brochure from a local group of bigots. They wanted me to send a donation so they can help spread the word that marriage is between one man and one woman.

    One of their arguments is as follows;

    Q: Isn't it discrimination to deny marriages to gays and lesbians?
    No. Every person -- male and female -- is treated equally under current marriage laws. These laws forbid marrying close relatives, people under a certain age or a person of the same gender.

    And marrying a person of the same gender is in the same category as incest and pedophilia? I didn't know that either.

    Well, at least everyone is treated equally, right? Well if it's so fair, why can't I marry the female partner that I love. How is that fair?

    "Among those to praise the results was Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President Joe Solmonese, who called support for LGBT equality "common sense.""

    While I think it's great that people aren't [currently] burning a path to the polls to make sure that same-sex marriage remains illegal, I'm not so sure this is a sign of support as the HRC president seems to think. I think it's more a case of being able to feed your children and keep a roof over their heads is more important at the moment. -Michael
