Trendy or Political? Maybe Both

This was a cool article in the New York Times about heterosexual couples who refuse to marry until gay people can too. My only criticism of it would be that it's been placed in the Fashion and Style section of the magazine, as if it's just a trendy piece of apparel to put on, rather than in the Politics section. After all, what is politics if it isn't people giving voice to injustices and demanding change in the policies we live by?

Believe me, the fashion and style section of the NY Times has more connection to causal reality than the politics section ever had.

Ok, that's probably true. ;-)

And - if the US is anything like the UK - more people probably read the fashion & style pages that the political ones.
