Will we ACTUALLY have all the same rights, word for word exactly the same, every single one of them? Federal rights too? Or are we only going to get the bits you people allow. The fact that our marriages can be voted on and yours cant is an indication we are far from equal.<quoted text>
Would you having all rights that we have under a different civil union somehow remove some of your rights?
And if they are exactly the same what is the point of using two different words? It's is JUST a word. What is your special attachment to it. Will us calling it marriage mean you cant? Is it taking something from you? It's a pretty lame thing to get so incredibly defensive of.
