Gay Marriage Lost, But It’s Not Losing

Time is on the side of same-sex marriage

| November 16, 2009

Opponents of same-sex marriage waxed triumphant recently when voters in Maine rejected a measure allowing gays to wed. Maggie Gallagher, head of the National Organization for Marriage, crowed, “This victory in Maine interrupts the cultural narrative that was being manufactured, that somehow American opinion is shifting on the gay marriage issue.”

But she and her allies are the political equivalent of a Minnesota Vikings fan, gazing upon Brett Favre’s middle-aged gridiron wizardry. They had better enjoy it now, because it’s not going to last.

What got overlooked on Election Day was the victory for gay rights on the other coast, in Washington state—where the electorate extended to homosexual couples all the privileges and responsibilities enjoyed by heterosexual couples. That measure, known as “everything but marriage,” passed with 52 percent of the vote.

Why did it succeed while the initiative in Maine failed? Simple: Washington calls this new option “domestic partnership” rather than “marriage.”

As it turns out, it’s not the idea of treating gay couples equally that bothers most Americans. It’s the name of the legal arrangement. Call same-sex marriage by another term—civil union, domestic partnership, everything-but-marriage, Qualcomm Stadium, Death Cab for Cutie—and they’re fine with it. (…)

Die Propagandaoffensive rollt Welle um Welle, eine Brandung, die die Klippen des Widerstands gegen die schöne neue Genderwelt auswäscht und unterhöhlt, bis sie in den Ozean der narzißtischen Regression bröckeln. Orwell und Huxley prosten sich an der Wolkentheke darüber zu. Unsere Enkelkinder werden uns Gendernazis nennen und uns die Frage stellen, die wir für uns gepachtet zu haben glauben: Wie konntet Ihr es soweit kommen lassen? Warum habt ihr Euch nicht dem Widerstand angeschlossen?

“Das versteht Ihr nicht. Das waren andere Zeiten.” werden wir antworten.
