"I want to say to the gentleman to my left, gay people who want to marry have no desire to redefine marriage in any way. When women got the vote they did not redefine voting. When African-Americans got the right to sit at a lunch counter alongside white people, they did not redefine eating out. They were simply invited to the table."

--Cynthia Nixon at a debate with NOM

Bingo!!! That's so smart and dead on. I can't believe I haven't heard anyone else make that argument before, including me. It's such an obvious point.
