Should we add an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman? Well, no, if you’re asking me. But nobody has asked me (yet). And everybody has their own opinions. However, the question got me thinking that if we define marriage in that way, then perhaps we need two more definitions to add clarity-
Man— A heterosexual person with an “arrow.”
Woman–a heterosexual person with a “cross.”
Of course, how would anyone know whether a person entering into this union is heterosexual or not; has an “arrow” or a “cross” (artificial or natural? or not) unless you’re going to begin requiring physical examinations prior to issuing a marriage license. Although, I guess a birth certificate would reveal any transgender surgery, so then are you going to define the person standing before you according to their birth gender or their current gender? And of course, in effect, a gay man could marry a lesbian woman, or a transgender person could marry another transgender person. And these unions would be acceptable while same-sex marriage is not?
I think we’re going to need a bigger boat.
