Domestic Partnerships and Booger Eating

Domestic Partnerships Begin in Wisconsin

William posted on the Capital Times, newspaper for Madison, WI, after a long dissertation on why he opposes domestic partnerships, this comparison between being gay and other behaviors.
Most people frown on booger eating, should that be a protected civil right?  What about public intoxication or nudity?  There are a host of unaccepted social behaviors – should people be given the “civil right” to engage in them?
But don’t worry. Plenty of readers gave William the feedback he so desperately needed.
“The registry doesn’t even come close to providing equality,” says Emily Dudak Taylor, an attorney with the Law Center for Children & Families in Madison. “That’s why the lawsuit is so laughable.”
Reader comment:
I am happy to see this happen. I am not gay, however, after learning about the legal difficulties, and hassels one of my co-workers went through with her partner following a near death accident. Its good to see any rights GLB gain. I feel that if we as a society focused on large scale problems—The war in Iraq, homlessness, poverty, 40 million uninsured Americans, underfunded schools, a growing underclass, and prisions bursting at the seams. We would have much less tome to worry about what two adults choose to do with their lives.

Since when is majority opinion the litmus test for tyranny?

Flip that around.  Isn’t it tyranny when the Minority controls the Majority?

I suspect that the pressure being put on the state legislature to approve Domestic Partnership actually has very little to do with “providing benefits” and more to do with paving they way for acceptance of a particular behavior that most people disapprove of.

It’s not that gays cannot engage in the behavior of their choosing that is the real problem.  Rather it is the lack of acceptance and approval of their behavior by the masses that they are after.

William, William, William. Such a sad life you lead. Don’t you know that it isn’t illegal to eat boogers? Because you apparently don’t know that dehumanizing others is an unacceptable social behavior.
