Why is a marriage not equal to a civil union? Both have the state sanctioned personal relationship in NZ.
To the OP:
A man and a woman is a marriage (and its a social institution) and the union of which founds a family .
A man and a man is a civil union.
A man is not a woman, but yet woman do not (and can not) need to change the definition of the word woman to man to get equality.
This type of selfish action, refusing to accept and celebrate apparent difference always has the fallout of making diversity unacceptable.
Racism can increase from this type of propaganda, from telling society you are not equal if you are different or defined by a word.
This bullying action by gay MP's without the public support on a social definition was dishonest.Denying their own personal relationships to destroy
the social definition of marriage.
If NZ's most power hungry politicians were not gay and were instead polygamists or incestuals you could be celebrating a forced polygamy or
incestual law changes instead.
There would be no difference as the public majority of public submissions on a social institution were omitted.
