CO Bogged Down By Semantics

Two gay-themed bills on Colorado’s ballot both have a shot of passing, according to a recent survey. One bill promises to ban same-sex marriage, while another will allow gay couples certain benefits. 365 Gay reports:

On the issue of banning gay marriage, 51 percent of those surveyed said they would vote for the amendment with 43 percent against. At the same time, 47 percent said they would support the plan to permit domestic partnerships with 42 percent opposed.

As usual, the debate centers around whether or not to call legal gay partnership “marriage” or the oft-suggested “civil union”.

You know, we’re really getting sick of this entire marriage v. unions debate. We think we should have a national field day to decide. If those sticklers who want to keep “marriage” defined as simply hetero win, then so be it. If the free-thinkers looking to shake up the lingual boundaries win, then we can proceed with the appropriate steps of homofying our nation.

First up: mandatory make-overs – there is no reason for there to be so many unkempt people in America. No wonder everybody hates us.
