Banning Marriage (Gay and Otherwise)

A new political party in Sweden called The Feminist Initiative is running on a platform calling for the abolition of marriage. All marriage. The idea, allegedly, is that marriage "is not about love, but about ownership." Instead they propose some sort of domestic partner arrangement that would not take gender into consideration at all, nor would it be restricted to only two partners. I'm frankly shocked at their intolerant approach. They do not permit sheep and goats to become legal partners with humans! That's species-ism! Somehow this is seen as a good move for women. Well, how does this party try to appeal to male voters? A six hour work-day. I'm sure all the Mr. Mom's are miffed at the assumption that all the men out there are the bread-winners. That's sooo retro.

What's next people?!

Here's the link, since I wouldn't blame you for thinking I made this up. Someone please tell me this is a spoof. I don't think it is.

It's being reported in the London Times, Associated Press and other papers, so it's for real.

I'm sure those "partnerships" will be entered into with vows like "For as long as we both find it mutually convenient," and other such heartfelt pledges.

The Swedes are a lot like Peter Singer--you want think it's a joke, but nope, they really mean it.
