Re: Profiles of same-sex couples with marriage licenses in California on LinkDump

<Warehouse> If it's "same-sex" marriage, why do they still dress like/act out the male and female roles? (e.g. one is dressed in a blue tux, the other in a pink tux. One women looks like a women the other looks like a man.)

<Brennen> If I thought this represented some kind of honest inquiry, I might make the observation that, you know, both the social and biological realities of sex / gender / identity are more complicated & graduated than legal categories and broadly accepted social norms tend to recognize. But then I'm kind of assuming that most people with more sense than hostility are well aware of this remarkably basic point, so why bother?
