I interviewed a Communications Major student at Texas A&M University, who happens to be a mother. This is her response to the article and the issues covered within it:
Me: “Do you think it’s fair that Edie and Thea were engaged for so long and that they couldn’t wear an engagement ring? Do you think it’s right that they are denied tax status and health benefits, things that other married couples have the privilege of?”
Interviewee: “No it’s not fair. This is a nation founded on so many freedoms. We still haven’t learned from the past! Stop unfairly treating people. Leave them alone. Be who and what you want to be and let others do the same.”
Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer
Look at how happy they look!
