A gay-rights group says it is "dismayed" with Statistics Canada over the way it treats same-sex couples in the May 16 census, saying the federal agency has complicated the way same-sex couples are counted.
The census form instructs same-sex couples who are married to check the "Other" category at the bottom of the list of relationships, rather than checking the top box marked "Husband or wife."
Egale Canada is urging same-sex married couples to list their relationships as "Husband or wife" rather than "Other;" it assures same-sex couples that Statistics Canada will record either response correctly as a married same-sex couple.
You can usually figure out at first glance who plays the "husband" and "wife" in a homosexual couple; such couplings always try to replicate, if only in parody, the proper man and woman relationship. In a backhanded way, that's a recognition of the true nature of human coupling and its necessity to society. Vice's tribute to virtue, if you will.
Since the courts have forced a redefinition of civil marriage, can forcing a redefinition of husband and wife be far behind? Simply define the terms as representing the performance of the traditional masculine and feminine roles in marriage. If a homosexual couple won't agree or can't decide which is which, courts can take evidence of who does what and decide accordingly.
For obvious reasons, I shall not speculate on what the requisite evidence might be.
Or we could keep the courts from having to perform such nonsense by repealing same-sex "marriage."
