So anyway, I had this great idea of just abolishing marriage. And they said I was crazy. They say that a lot. But now, there is a politcal party in Sweden (one of those great non-USA nations with more tha 2 viable political parties –– they are expecting to pull some 20% of the vote) that is running candidates on that platform. The Feminist Initiative has stated that "marriage is about love, not ownership", and candidates with the no more marriage platform. Instead they are in favor of "cohabitation laws" that are gender agnostic and allow more than 2 members to a partnership (which is something else I had been advocating).
And here's the part that I also love. Since they are serious about wanting to win, and realize that they need a little more than feminist and gay issues support to actually win, they are courting the valuable straight male vote by also promising to implement a 6 hour work day. Yeah, I can get behind that.
I love when the world comes along to recognizing my brilliance as a visionary. Today the abolishment of marriage, tomorrow the return of Cop Rock!
