STUDY: Voters Prefer “Marriage Equality” Over Icky “Gay Marriage”

A Rutgers-Eagleton Poll revealed that while 52 percent of New Jersey voters believe in legalizing “gay marriage”, that support goes up to 61 percent if you use the word “marriage equality” instead. That’s probably because more people like the idea of marriage as an equal institution rather marriage as an institution turned gay by a bunch of homos.

We assume “same-sex marriage” would score even lower because it conjures up images of gay sex. Aren’t semantics cool?
