I voted against the anti-gay marriage amendment to the WI constitution…

July 8th, 2009

…but that doesn’t mean I like disingenuous arguments in favor of gay rights.

When the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel defends including same-sex partner benefits by writing:

The budget measure gives gay couples 43 of the 200 rights enjoyed by married couples, discount cialis cialis such as allowing family and medical leave to care for an ill partner, viagra usa cure end-of-life decisions and hospital visitation rights. Forty-three of 200 does not a marriage make.

…they’re ignoring the possibility that those 43 rights could represent the lion’s share of the rights granted by marriage. In which case, the number of rights would be less important in determining how closely the status granted by the new budget resembled a marriage than the relative value of those rights.
