Hallmark Introduces Gay Marriage Card

Now that gay marriage is legal in two states, as well as entire countries (3 cheers for Canada), Hallmark has come out with a line of Gay Marriage Cards. The Associated Press Story reports that the the messages inside will be of a neutral tone which will allow them to appropriate for a legal union, civil unions, and commitment ceremonies.

And though the best cards to receive are handmade cards, I have to admit that it makes me very happy for all my gay friends to have one more, albeit minor, victory in homophobic corporate America.

Yes, in the end Hallmark is just trying to make a profit but I'm sure they will take some heat in certain areas of this country. Cut to some random Hallmark store getting protested just because they carry cards with two men in tuxedos as the image on the front. When interviewed on the news the protester will say something profound like "I don't want my kids to see these cards and start asking questions." Ah, yes every one knows that kids asking questions about Hallmark Cards will make them gay.

This is one of the things that I think is important for people against marriage equality to realize (because arguing morality with people is pointless): Marriage is big business. Your state can make a lot of money by legalizing gay marriage. If nothing else, do it for the ducats!

(But, really, do it because it's the right thing to do for our gay brothers and sisters.)
