Your Gay But Not A Family!

Stand up but don't be counted!

U.S. Census spokesperson Cynthia Endo calls "gay lifestyle" a choice and say's we will not be counted as A FAMILY but rather as "unmarried partners."

According to Endo, it is all about the numbers and NOT about the "choices or lifestyles."

The federal Defense of Marriage Act or DOMA, signed in 1996 by President Bill Clinton, does not recognize gay unions sanctioned by states.

Sharon Raphael, a sociologist who lives with her partner Mina Meyer, told the Press-Telegram: "Certain numbers of us are not out, and when they hide us under these general descriptions, it just makes us more invisible."

"We should be treated the same. First of all, it's just not good science to leave us out for some dumb political reason."

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
