Same-Sex Marriage in New York
It seems appropriate to have a thread. To kick things off on an appropriately contentious note, I’ll repeat that I’m more of a pessimist than most on the pro-SSM side.
Law is a powerful shaper of public opinion, and most state constitutions now ban same-sex marriage. This all by itself could be enough to reverse the long-term trend toward support on the issue, because people form their opinions according to the laws they live under. The fight may well be over — right now — with most of us just not realizing it yet.
