@TwoCityBride:  Agree with everything you said. I hope people feel ashamed of this kind of nonsense.

I read about that. Some people were saying for the partner to carry his power of attorney documents, which then brings up the argument of “well married hetero couples don’t have to carry their marriage licenses around, so why should LGBTQ have to?”

 

Which is a valid question, and pisses me off that it’s happening.

Ugh, this is awful.  Such BS.  I love how this article (and the hospital) makes it sound like it was all his fault- he caused the “disturbance” so he had to go!  Ignores the real issue completely, that he never should have been asked to leave in the first place!  Disgusting.

This makes my heart ache. It’s so sad that people are refused rights based on other people’s opinions.

It’s so revolting that the world is still this way.

We are the ones who have to change it!

 

I’m at least glad this is getting media time, people need to be outraged.

This is insane!

I don’t understand though… what is a civil union? It can’t be like a civil partnership, because they automatically confer next of kin priviliges. It sounds like some sort of halfway house between civil partnership and… nothing…

Ugh, this makes me so sad that there are such disparities in our society.

@Rachel631:  There-in lies the status of same-sex relationships in the US (somewhere betwixt and between nothing and legal recognition) and why there are 2 related court cases sitting with the US Supreme Court… Even if you are legally married in one state (so long as you are gay), if you travel to a state that does not recognize your relationship (or g-d forbid move to a state that does not recognize) then you are at risk for experiencing significant loss of access to ones rights.  Even if you are legally married in one place, even if you have a child with both parents names on the birth certificate it is still recommended that you have additional legal protections like going through second parent adoption, getting medical and durable powers of attorney… 

As someone who got married in Kansas City (to her wife) and had a wonderful experience it breaks my heart that people in that community are at risk for this kind of treatment.

@Mrs. Scone:  So what is the solution? As you have constitutional law then how do you amend this?
