    Fine by me. Let's get it over with and make it legal nation wide. That will stop it from being on TV everyday and giving them the attention that they are seeking.

  3. How long before we get the inevitable . . .

    reality T.V. show then the inevitable T.V. divorce court
    special with representation by the inevitable new legal
    specialization - gay divorce!!!!

    (A scene at City Hall in Portland, or San Francisco, or anytown USA )

    “Good morning. We want to apply for a marriage license.”
    “Tim and Jim Jones.”
    “Jones? Are you related? I see a resemblance.”
    “Yes, we’re brothers.”
    “Brothers? You can’t get married.”
    “Why not? Aren’t you giving marriage licenses to same gender

    “Yes, thousands. But we haven’t had any siblings. That’s incest!”
    “Incest?” No, we are not gay.”
    “Not gay? Then why do you want to get married?”
    “For the financial benefits, of course. And we do love each other.
    “Besides, we don’t have any other prospects.”
    “But we’re issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples
    been denied equal protection under the law. If you are not gay, you
    get married to a woman.”

    “Wait a minute. A gay man has the same right to marry a woman as I
    But just because I’m straight doesn’t mean I want to marry a woman. I
    want to marry Jim.”

    “And I want to marry Tim, Are you going to discriminate against us
    because we are not gay?”

    “All right, all right. I’ll give you your license. Next.”
    “Hi. We are here to get married.”
    “John Smith, Jane James, Robert Green, and June Johnson.”
    “Who wants to marry whom?”
    “We all want to marry each other.”
    “But there are four of you!”
    “That’s right. You see, we’re all bisexual. I love Jane and Robert,
    loves me and June, June loves Robert and Jane, and Robert loves June
    me. All of us getting married together is the only way that we can
    express our sexual preferences in a marital relationship.”

    “But we’ve only been granting licenses to gay and lesbian couples.”
    “So you’re discriminating against bisexuals!”
    “No, it’s just that, well, the traditional idea of marriage is that
    just for couples.”

    “Since when are you standing on tradition?”
    “Well, I mean, you have to draw the line somewhere.”
    “Who says? There’s no logical reason to limit marriage to couples.
    more the better. Besides, we demand our rights! The mayor says the
    constitution guarantees equal protection under the law. Give us a
    marriage license!”

    “All right, all right. Next.”
    “Hello, I’d like a marriage license.”
    “In what names?”
    “David Deets.”
    “And the other man?”
    “That’s all. I want to marry myself.”
    “Marry yourself? What do you mean?”
    “Well, my psychiatrist says I have a dual personality, so I want to
    marry the two together. Maybe I can file a joint income-tax return.”
