Gilligan's Island Game Theory and Gay Marriage


As the Supreme Court hears oral arguments today in a case about the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was a pro-active attempt to squelch same-sex marriage, Iowahawk offers up three reasons to support marriage equality:

First, I'm against restrictions on adults entering into voluntary contracts. Second, I see no reason why broadening the definition of marriage to same-sex couples devalues or diminishes mine. Finally, there's the purely utilitarian Gilligan's Island effect: if Skipper and Professor decide to wed in a tasteful lagoon-side ceremony, I've got Ginger and Mary Ann to myself at the wedding luau. And if it's Mary Ann and Ginger hooking up, well… I'll be in my bunk.
