    What would the polls show if the question were reworded slightly to perhaps more truly reflect what's really the fuck going on here?

    Instead of Should the US Legalize Gay Marriage

    how about Should the US Decriminalize Gay Marriage.

    But you say, well, gay people aren't being arrested for marrying.

    I get that this is kind of a stretch of normal thinking, but what would happen if those couples started, say, filing their IRS returns as the couple they are in an act of civil disobedience. Doesn't that make the married couple criminal? They'd only be doing what str8 married couples do except of course that one married couple is acting legally and the other married couple is supposedly acting illegally though, in emphasis, they are both doing the very same thing.

    So doesn't that make, for practical purposes, which should be of concern, gay marriage illegal and therefore it makes gay couples who perform the otherwise accepted everyday tasks of married life criminal?

    So then shouldn't the real question be:

    Should the US Decriminalize Gay Marriage?

    Because being legal, as we only want what everyone else has, ought the fuck to be a given. That's nothing that should be made to happen. And framing their oppression of us in that way creates the illusion of power which is not rightfully theirs to usurp.
