Friday Morning Shrieeeeek

Lifesite: I read it so you don't have to. Onward:

They're peakin', freakin' and SHRIEEEEEKin' all the way to a collective nervous breakdown on lifeshite today, and what's got them so exercised this time? It's California's gay marriage law, which will become effective when County Clerks start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in about 2 weeks:
"SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California officials are telling county clerks that they can start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on June 17."
"No more 'brides' and 'grooms'!" screeches lifeshite.

No more brides and grooms? Great snappin' assholes, take a valium. As long as people are buying into the marriage bill of goods, there'll always be brides and grooms. The only difference is some brides will be marrying other brides and some grooms will be marrying other grooms, but so what? Oh wait, what's this...
"New marriage license forms also will include lines for "Party A" and "Party B" instead of bridge and groom."
Oh, so that's what they've got their size 18 granny-panties in a twist over. "Party A" and "Party B" -- the Apocalypse must surely be upon us. But what's the difference between that and their version, "Tab A in Slot B"?
