Interesting counterpoint to the H8 decision

A blogger does a deep analysis of the court's decision today and comes to the conclusion that we may not have lost as much as we thought. Essentially, the Court said, "ok, you can't call same sex unions performed after Prop 8 marriages, but that's all you can't do. You can still call your spouse your husband, you're still entitled to all of the rights of marriage, and you can still call it marriage if you go out of state and it is recognized there. The only thing you can't have is the word." Interesting point. The word matters, but if that's all we lost, and the H8ers didn't win anything else, then maybe we haven't lost as much as we thought.
