It’s another example of where our community’s relationships rate in the opinions of some people.
Palm Beach Community College in South Florida has approved a discounted group medical plan for employee’s pets. Sounds nice, right? It is, until you look at the fact that last August the PBCC trustees voted down a proposal for domestic partnership benefits.
That’s right, folks. The college thinks that pets deserve insurance coverage, but people don’t. Actually, that’s not exactly true. They don’t think pets are more important than all people- just LGBT people in committed relationships. We rank somewhere below dogs, cats, hedgehogs, frogs, guinea pigs, geckos, and iguanas (all of which are covered by the insurance plan).
