Glenn Beck Struggles To Make Sense Of The Term 'Heteronormative'
Glenn Beck is oddly obsessed about a move by the state of Washington to convert all of its same-sex domestic partnerships to marriages now that gay marriage is legal in the state. Back in 2007, before the state enacted marriage equality, Washington began granting marriage-like benefits to same-sex couples (as well as to older heterosexual couples) who registered for domestic partnerships.
Operating on the assumption that same-sex couples who registered for such partnerships would have gotten married had that been an option at the time, the state will now automatically convert those domestic partnerships to marriages as of June 30 for every couple that chooses not to opt out and the domestic partnership option will be eliminated for gay couples entirely.
The way Beck and his staff see it, the state of Washington is now essentially forcing gay couples to get married against their will, which is apparently just like forcing two same-sex roommates to get married.
Beck talked about this issue on his television program last night with The Blaze's Billy Hallowell and gay writer Brandon Ambrosino. During the discussion, Ambrosino made the point that some gay couples might object to having their relationship converted to marriage because they believe that marriage is a heteronormative institution of which they do not want to be a part ... and Ambrosino's use of the word "heteronormative" completely threw Beck for a loop, as he simply could not understand the point that Ambrosino was making, which he then logically attributed to the fact that other people supposedly aren't being consistent.
"The world is such a confusing place now," Beck said. "How do you disagree with that because people aren't consistent?"
