I have a marginally modest proposal and sensible semantic solution to the controversy over same-sex "whatchacallit."
The new laws shall apply equally in each of these cases as regarding, for example, financial benefits of:
1."Marr-iage," upheld unblemished, between a man and a woman;
2."Care-iage," uniting two women;
3."Share-iage," uniting two men.
Hence, we as a nation, recognizing three lawful social institutions, will discuss how to spell, pronounce and integrate marriage, care-iage and share-iage, thus respecting, honoring and upholding "The Cherished Traditional," while embracing de facto present-day 21st century alternatives.
