No net loss of "essentialness".

bumblepudding read an editorial (titled "Gay Marriage Devalues Women") written by the father of a young girl. His whole reply was amusing, but here's just a little bit of it:

Second, the patronizing notion that "gay marriage devalues women" conveniently ignores the prospect of union between two females. If this fellow's poor daughter is not "essential" to a marriage between two men, would she not by the same logic be *doubly* "essential" to a marriage between two women? Running the numbers, that results in no net loss in the apparently crucial category of marital "essentialness."
