The Locker Room

Even the eggheads editing dictionaries have become politicized, to wit...

Paul, regarding your post on dictionaries redefining the word "marriage," surely those editors aren't being clear enough. Shouldn't the new definition of marriage, worded to legitimize same-sex marriage (ad verecundiam propter Websterum), more closely reflect the full argument in favor of same-sex marriage? For example:


marriage n 1. The condition of being a husband or wife; the relation between persons married to each other; matrimony. (Note: The term is now sometimes used with reference to and only to long-term relationships between partners of the same sex. Long-term relationships between three or more partners, between certain partners bearing kinship, between an adult and a child, between human and animalkind, or between human and object or objects, do not now qualify, nor will they ever qualify. We promise.)
