Gay marriage, that is. D.C. voted to recognize out of state same-sex marriages just a few days after the Iowa Supreme Court voted unanimously that legislation limiting marriage to one man and one woman is unconstitutional. The same day D.C. made a move, Vermont voted to override the governor’s veto of a bill allowing same sex marriage.
Whew. That was exhausting. But these events, while great for my same-sex brothers and sisters, do not solve the fundamental problem of inequality: The existence of special privileges available only to those who marry. Thoughts?
