    Well the tradition of codified discrimination against gays is coming to an end. And heterosexual couples can still have their traditional man woman 2.3 kids, one dog, white picket fence house marriage.

    And racists felt uncomfortable about anti-miscegenation laws coming to an end. Why should anyone care?

    They should have had marriage a long time ago.

    The "old" terms could still have been accomodated, this sort of thing is just inflamatory really.
    Besides (and apologies if someone else has already pointed this out), there's still the problem of who gets to be "A" and who gets to be "B."

    They had a long time ago. They were just legally discriminated against.

    We're not talking about racists, and no one is saying anyone else should care. I was just pointing out one reason why this might be upsetting to some people even though to others its just a simple title change on a legal document.

    I'm still wondering why they can't be bride and bride for two females or groom and groom for two males. What's the problem?

    No, we're talking about bigots.

    The point was that changes like this are always upsetting to the prejudiced.

    People who don't want 'bride and groom' to change to 'person A' and 'person B' are bigots?
    What about the lgbt who don't want to see it change? Are they bigots too?

    I don't know . This whole 'issue' is like the 'freedom fries' thing in my opinion. Why waste the time and effort?
