  •  This straight married woman calls it nothing else. (3+ / 0-)

    Marriage equality is the only way to accurately refer to flinging open the doors to all 1000+ rights, benefits and responsibilities of marriage for all citizens.

    Using some kind of shorthand intended to underscore the inclusion of gays and lesbians has the unfortunate effect of implying a new institution and therefore something less than full equality.

    •  This here hetero married man must report that (4+ / 0-)

      after 8 years of having marriage equality in Massachusetts my marriage is no worse because of this (and probably better as we have many homosexual married couples that are part of our life and inspire us).

      If anyone does not want to marry a person of the same gender - THEN DON'T!  No special rights for homosexuals (as Republicans say, and I agree on those 5 words) - JUST EQUAL RIGHTS!

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
