  •  Thank you. I have almost given (8+ / 0-)

    up even here on DKos trying to get people to stop using both "same-sex marriage" and "gay marriage".  You don't get "gey married".  You simply get married.  Whenever I hear either a pundit or an anchor talk using those terms it grates on my ears.  At a minumum, one would think that progressives would adopt the more progressive framing.

    Words matter.  This is about equality.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.  That is the basis of the case currently before the Supreme Court.  

    The proper term is "marriage equality".

    With the Decision Points Theater, the George W. Bush Presidential Library becomes the very first Presidential Library to feature a Fiction Section.

      appointed you Chief of Language Police to determine the "proper term."  In my opinion your derision of "gay marriage" is because the term "grates on your ears."  COuld it be that you see "gay" as a pejorative term?

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.
