Many people believe that gays should have "civil unions" with all benefits of a marriage. But civil unions make gays second class citizens because there is no equality when you tell gays they can't be married.
I dunno I mean if that civil unions carries the same benefits as marriage <-- whats the difference ? To continue a fight to just be able to say I am married is silly and childish - IMO. Might as well call marriage a civil union which in a sense thats what it is, a union between 2 people.
That's the point carp. If a civil union and marriage are supposedly the same, why, then, do we need two labels? But, in fact, they are not the same. And given that a civil union does not deliver all the benefits of marriage, it is the same as telling Gay couples that they are not equal to heterosexuals.
No Well if civil union and marriage has the same benefits, it is not discriminatory.
You sound like a homophobe apologist.
LOL Think outside the box. Think about 3rd party, who reads documentation. I already gave one example. Marriage = man and woman Civil Union = man and man or woman and woman
Simply gives - say emergency responders a heads up on what to look for. Another example, Fiery plane crash, they are looking for a married couple but only find 2 men - they continue to look for his wife for days on end.
or that what I am describing is unfair?
That is correct - civil union should have exactly the same benefits as marriage. As mentioned above there should be a distinction between the 2, for documentation reasons.
