New York Gained Freedom to Marry, Not Marriage Equality

Congrats to (monogamous nonconsanguineous) same-sex couples in the state of New York for gaining the freedom to marry!

It is time to celebrate and thank the lawmakers who have taken this step.

However, we should not forget that some people in New York are still denied their right to marry. There's more freedom to marry in New York, but there's still not full marriage equality. Wouldn't it be great if New York led the way in the US to full marriage equality, so an adult could marry any consenting adults? Let's make it happen! Equality just for some is NOT equality. We who support full marriage equality want a man who wants to marry another man to have that freedom... even if that other man is already married, or is his uncle, brother, or father. We want loving couples like [Anonymous Daughter] and her husband and Liz and Ryan to be able to legally marry.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
