Old Fashioned Transsexual Marriage


An intriguing piece at Slate by the relentlessly interesting Brendan Koerner notes that conservative states like Texas are actually more likely to recognize one form of "gay marriage"—unions in which one partner is transgendered. That's because those states are more likely to view gender as "fixed at birth," not succeptible to alteration by science. (I wonder how they deal with intersexuals? Can they marry whomever they please? Nobody?)
