Not That You Need Convincing
I'd be very surprised if any of my regular readers are opposed to same-sex marriage (maybe I'm too optimistic -- I'm always surprised when anyone with even remotely egalitarian attitudes opposes same-sex marriage at this point). Nonetheless, Martha Nussbaum has an article up in Dissent which does a very nice job dismantling the argument against providing equal rights for gay and lesbian citizens in the marital sphere. Definitely worth a read, regardless of whether you're already there on the position or not.
