21. You are probably right--
It may take a lot of time and effort to get the general public behind the idea of gay marriage. I have heard some conservative pundits claim that the idea is geared toward trying to secure benefits above and beyond what a straight married couple might be entitled to. I don't know if there is anything to this claim or not-- but I will say this: There better not be.

Anyone who tries to play the system for personal advantage is hurting the overall cause.
