Queerty is better as a member
Insufficient. Very small baby step sideways, if anything.
“Long-term” can be interpreted any way an entrenched DHS bigot wishes.
Straight people can still marry the day after they meet and receive full recognition.
Protections for same-sex partners is not actually improved. The DHS didn’t adopt a disciplinary response for violation of this sub-policy guideline.
The only silver lining I find is that DHS leadership felt compelled to send the LGBT community a symbolic gesture, though it could just be a strategic move to evoke a respectful easing of pressure on them.
We humans do love our symbols. They are so symbolic.
