Jaxian said:I am personally concerned that people are using civil unions as a way to excuse themselves from mistreating gay people. That is, I think they are saying to themselves, "Now gay people are treated fairly, and we can put the issue to rest."

It is simply a collection of legal conveniences, something to be filed in the financial folder, next to the will and the life insurance policy.
