Wisconsin Doesn’t Like the Gays

 

Up there in Wisconsin, which is slowly turning into Wisconsizona, wingnut Governor Scott Walker believes a new law that gives gay couples hospital visitation rights violates the state constitution. He has asked a judge to allow the state to stop defending it.

A law that allows people to visit their loved ones in the hospital is unconstitutional? Oh, not ‘people,’ but gay people.
Back in 2009, when Democrats controlled the Legislature, they changed the law so that same-sex couples could sign up for domestic partnership registries with county clerks to secure some–not all–of the rights afforded married couples.

Like being able to visit your partner in the hospital, like you’d visit any family member. But Scott Walker doesn’t think gay couples are a family. he thinks, along with the homophobic, bigoted, Wisconsin Family Action, that the registries violate a 2006 amendment to the state constitution that bans gay marriage and any arrangement that is substantially similar.

See, gay folks and gay families and gay couples don’t deserve to be treated equally in Wisconsizona. At least while Scott Walker is governor, which, hopefully, won’t be more than one term.
