Yesterday the Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage in several states, which will lead to legalization in several states beyond those.
This, of course, prompted liberals to pump their fists and shout victoriously that our nation is now one step closer to full ‘marriage equality.’ As if, through any law or judicial action, the union between two men can ever actually be equal to the union between a man and a woman.
It can’t. Marriage equality is impossible. Gay marriage can never be equal to ‘traditional marriage.’ In fact, gay marriage itself is fundamentally impossible, regardless of what words we use or what policies are implemented.

Anyone concerned that I’d be censored or controlled because of this arrangement need not worry about that anymore.
