Now, there is a ballot measure in Montgomery County, Maryland that supports this interpretation. The county passed a law outlawing all references to gender in any part of the county code. A citizens group place a measure on the ballot to overturn this law. Their opponents? Homosexual activists.
After the Montgomery County Board voted to render the citizens of their county legally androgynous by removing all references to gender from the county code, Maryland Citizens for Responsible Government began a petition drive to get the measure on the November ballot. Homosexual activists with Equality Maryland sued, trying to keep the people from voting.
In this article I had given the gay rights activists the benefit of the doubt. I made no claim one way or another about whether they intended to create a completely de-gendered society. I still believe there are many sensible gay people who do not want that outcome. But I now think it is clear that a completely de-gendered society will be the outcome, whether anyone wants it or not.
And plainly, some people in Maryland do want this outcome. I feel vindicated.
