Getting straight on marriage

Peter Griffin at the blog Griffin’s Gadgets runs an amusing seriesCrazy science letter of the week.” You know – the cranks who write “Letters to the Editor” trying to put us straight about evolutionary and climate science. It’s worth checking them out.

Sometimes (but more rarely) there can also be letters that are the opposite. Real gems – witty, satirical, brief and to the point.

Here’s one from the Sydney Morning Herald. Part of a series commenting on the new Australian PM’s opposition to making same sex marriage legal (see Gillard needs to get it straight on gay marriage).

Gillard needs to get it straight on gay marriage

“Julia Gillard needs to get serious about equality between straights and gays. Maintaining the ban on gay marriage is a great first step. However, this oppressive institution still remains to the detriment of many straight men and women who fall for its false hope of domestic happiness and stability.

It’s about time the ban on marriage was extended to straights and not limited to a privileged minority.”
