New York Gay Marriage Net Loss for Freedom

A few quick thoughts in bullet format because it's more fun:

  • NOT a win for freedom. It's a win for equal rights under the law and against government sanction discrimination.
  • NY has just re-sanctioned and reinforced the idea that government should be the sole arbiter of marriage instead of private institutions.
  • Gay people have been placed into the privileged class of licensed married couples upon which the state of New York bestows 1,324 different benefits. The underclass of singles will now enjoy a little heavier lifting of the burden of government.
  • Woohoo for gay people.
  • Boohoo for freedom.
Been a while since I've posted. I have been very busy working two jobs. One with a celebrity who I am contractually obligated not to mention at this time. In the future.
