Debunking NOM’s talking points re: same-sex marriage. (It’s about freedom, people! Don’t you understand? Freedom!)
A trans woman discusses her legal gay marriage. (She transitioned after marrying a woman while legally male.) The best line, describing the practical effects of our country’s patchwork gender-and-sexuality laws on an actual person:
“Taking this situation to its logical conclusion, Mrs. Littleton, while in San Antonio, Tex., is a male and has a void marriage; as she travels to Houston, Tex., and enters federal property, she is female and a widow; upon traveling to Kentucky she is female and a widow; but, upon entering Ohio, she is once again male and prohibited from marriage; entering Connecticut, she is again female and may marry; if her travel takes her north to Vermont, she is male and may marry a female; if instead she travels south to New Jersey, she may marry a male.”
