To Have and to Hold Down


Jon Rowe and Eugene Volokh have a bit of fun with a spectacularly inane column by Les Kinsolving in which he frets that "marriage licenses for sadomasochists" are "next on the agenda of the Sodomy Lobby." Sadomasochists are, of course, perfectly free to marry now. In fact, while I've always taken exception to the conservative notion that "gay marriage" is an oxymoron, I suspect there's a decent case to be made that "sadomasochistic marriage" is redundant.
