the smiling wife affair

Dan Savage on the McGreevy press conference and the irony of protecting traditional marriage:
If it does nothing else, the McGreevey marriage highlights the chief absurdity of the anti-gay-marriage argument: Gay men can, in point of fact, get married -- provided we marry women, duped or otherwise. The porousness of the sacred institution is remarkable: Gay people are a threat to marriage, but gay people are encouraged to marry . . . as long as our marriages are a sham.[salon]
I'm surprised that he didn't mention his own apparently short-lived sham marriage from earlier this year.
