New York court declines to recognize gay marriage


Read it at Reuters.

Recognize it or not, it's happening (gasp): gay couples are living together, paying rent, paying taxes, dealing with ungrateful, bitchy relatives and are pooling their resources together to scrape up the money for a $2million-walk-in-closet.

What's interesting about this is that the issue stems from a lawsuit that seeks to overturn a 97-year-old state law that confines marriage to a union between a man and a woman. Were those gay Victorians causing so much ruckus that lawmakers had to create legislation to keep men and women "normal?"

I don't know about you, but those Victorians seemed pretty GAY to me. I mean, all those top hats and those frilly outfits! Yeah,, they seemed pretty gay.

At the very least, the Victorians were into BDSM. I mean, where do you think modern day whips, chains, and corsets derive from?

(as to the last part, I am totally serious!)
