I mean, if I knew I was going to be oppressing all of those fine,upstanding straight couples in America by demanding respect for my relationship and my partner, I never would have done it in the first place!

From sacbee.com (emphasis mine):

“We are traditionalists – we just want to be called bride and groom,” said Bird, 25, who works part time for her father’s church. “Those words have been used for generations and now they just changed them.”

In May, after the California State Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage legal, the courts mandated state officials to provide gender-neutral licenses and other marriage forms. “Bride” and “groom” became “Party A” and “Party B.”

Bird and Codding have refused to complete the new forms, a stand that has already cost them. Because their marriage is not registered with the state, Bird cannot sign up for Codding’s medical benefits or legally take his name. They are now exploring their options, she said.

Here’s the difference, fucktards:
You chose to not to have your marriage recognized by the state. You chose to opt out of the advantages and benefits of a legally-recognized marriage. You chose to do this to yourself. You might know it as Free Will.

We, Teh Gays, did not choose. We were never given a choice. Someone else has decided for us all along.

Stop your whining and do something worthwhile.
