Opponents of Marriage Equality Want to Control Straight People

Audrey Bilger at the Ms. blog has an interesting take on yesterday's argument before the Supreme Court in support of Proposition 8:

When opponents of marriage equality talk about "traditional" marriage, they want to roll back the clock on equality between men and women in marriage–hence the fear of "genderless" marriage and their insistence that marriage is a "gendered institution" even though the state does not currently force married couples to play traditional gender roles. If we don't guard against such archaic views of marriage, the state might start requiring pregnant women to marry, forcing men to marry women who can prove paternity and possibly even counting the number of allowed children within marriages.
