Simply Not Fair


I believe in marriages between vamps.  Really, why not?  
No, in all seriousness, I believe in marriage equality.  I understand that yesterday and today's arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court may not result in a decision that will allow same sex marriages under the federal and state law.  However, if the Court makes the right decision, those who oppose marriage equality will at least be struck down in their efforts to move forward with anti marriage equality movements/laws like Proposition 8 in California. 

The bottom line is this.  All men are created equal.  Same sex couples should receive the same kind of protection and benefits heterosexual couples receive as married couples under the law: family health insurance, certain exemptions from estate taxes, adoption rights, and many more.  Even car insurance can be much cheaper when obtained as a married couple.  

In 10 years (or less), I know we'll look back and scoff at why there was so much fuss about this.  Because it simply makes no sense.  And because it's simply NOT FAIR.
