funny that the nyt points out the (typical) gender inequality in the 'hubby hubby' choice, but queers united does not.
i guess it's just another example of how 'queer rights' means 'marriage equality' which means two men in button downs (hrc style) and their adopted child (anjelina jolie style) to the general public. and we're really not doing much to change that perception.
