But of course, there could be no "rational basis" for...

...a state to restrict marriage to one man and one woman.

See here. In case you're wondering why you should read it, it's called "Open Monogamy" and is about how some social scientists think it's just ducky that homosexual "marriage" will lead to a redefinition of "monogamy" to mean...um...I'm not sure. I think it means that you can have sex with anybody you want to and still call yourself "monogamous" as long as you are emotionally unattached to all the sexual partners other than the partner with whom you are said to be in a "committed relationship."

I'm waiting for the apologies from all the people who said, "How could this possibly hurt straight marriages?" in 3...2...1. Oh. Guess I shouldn't bother waiting.

“If innovation in marriage is going to occur, it will be spearheaded by homosexual marriages.”

What Mr. Quirk (appropriate name) doesn't seem to understand is that homosexual marriage is the innovation. After that, the only further innovation would be to stop calling it marriage at all.

Somebody ought to cite these studies, etc., in the appeal of the Prop. 8 decision. "Um, see, look, it _is_ supposed to change the nature of marriage."
