|Concerning gay issues...|
To quote Jerry Seinfeld; "Not that there's anything wrong with it!"
If the President were gay
Who would had thought 50 years ago a black man would be president of the United states. It wasn't that long ago that blacks were slaves in America.
Hawai'i has recently legalized same sex marriage, it is only a matter of time until same sex marriage becomes law in all 50 states. "Not that there's anything wrong with that."
With same sex marriage becoming more and more acceptable will there come a day when we have a same sex couple in the White-house?
Imagine the President of the United states being a gay man and I don't mean happy. If this man was married to another man what would we call his significant other? We call the wife of the President the first lady. If a woman was ever president the husband would be the first man. The question remains what would the partner of a same sex marriage President be called?
I could make some jokes but know they would be taken out of context. We could call them the first homosexual, or in the case of a woman president having a woman partner we could call her the first lesbian. How about the first gay?
Personally I still feel marriage is a union between a man and woman, at least that's what my oxford dictionary continues to tell me. I have no objection to gay people. However I still believe the term marriage is not the appropriate word for a life long bond of love between gay couples. I have said in the past to call it a "Garriage." Give the gays a word of their own. When you take the G from gay and delete the M in marriage you have "Garriage." 'Garriage' would have all the same benefits and properties as marriage but would stand on it's own. This way if you ever got an invitation for a garriage you know it would be a garriage and not a marriage.
Getting back to what you would call the President's significant partner should a gay man or woman ever become president? My Hawai'ian friends might say, "the first dakine!" better yet ,clean and simple, just call it the first.
