As a guest on Laura Ingraham’s radio show a few years ago, I debated Evan Wolfson, former project director of Lambda Legal. Relying on Lambda’s expressed concern for the rights of bisexuals, I challenged Wolfson to admit that legalizing same-sex marriage would lead to legalizing polygamy. [. . .] If polygamy isn’t legalized, how will a bisexual marry just one person without denying his or her ‘bisexual orientation’? Otherwise, in order to marry, won’t bisexuals have to make a gender choice in a spouse and then engage in adultery in order to fulfill who they are as bisexuals?
“Wolfson [. . .] says in his book, ‘Why Marriage Matters: America, Equality, and Gay People’s Right to Marry’: ‘Civil unions [. . .] are unequal in the security, clarity, and status they provide, unequal in the legal protections that flow from them, unequal in fact as well as in name — and names or words, of course, matter.’ [. . .]
“Howlong will bisexuals accept less than ‘equal treatment’ while homosexuals continue to diss civil unions and push for the right to ‘marry’ in other states? [. . .] How long will theywait for their homo- sexual ‘allies’ to help them achieve the equal right to ‘marry’ the persons of their choice?”
