Skip to comments.Census will count gay couples who check "husband or wife"
Posted on 03/30/2010 9:10:16 PM PDT by Stoat
Gay and lesbian couples who share a home may identify one another as "husband or wife" on their 2010 census forms if that's how they view their relationship even if they have not legally married in any of the places where it is allowed.
And whatever they say on that form is precisely how the government will count them.
Advocates who have long sought a complete count of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community say this falls short but is still a partial breakthrough one they say offers tacit acknowledgment of the very relationships the federal government legally denies.

Thus rendering the statistic meaningless.
What about straight domestic partner couples? They also may DEEM themselves to be in a relationship equal to marriage.
No word on those cohabitating with animals....yet.
They don't have their own special set of 'rights' and laws that apply only to them, as the homosexuals do.
I’m a male. I have a philodendron that I’ve named Madge and a dog named Shithead. Does that count as 3? The plant is from the U.S. and the dog is from Mexico.
Then I say F*** the census. Obama can use the blanks he gets back for TP
Just tell them you’re married to 600,000 wives, and they all live at your house. You can be a congressional district all by yourself.
Our country has gone insane.

I wonder how they deal with such census issues in the UK? I guess it's actually easier because all of this has been legalized. "sigh"
Our country has gone insane.
Don't worry....it can still get FAR worse. This FR thread regards Canada, and is from 2007:
As long as you pay your taxes and vote with the hard Left, you'll be just fine.
When I go over to DU (yuck) they were always of the persuasion that Bush wanted to become some kind of theological dictator so that he could put all the gays in concentration camps. (The lack of perception of the nature of Christianity on the left has always amazed me.)
My guess is the desire to be counted (”we are ten percent or even more of the population!”) is going to war with their paranoia about being holocausted or some such.
One of the many things about the hard left that astonishes me is their ability to breezily accept polar-opposite contradictions in philosophy as ‘business as usual’ and to do it with a straight face (pardon the pun).
There is always a convenient, although entirely illogical, ‘explanation’ for every Leftist position which all good, jackbooted Leftists must mindlessly agree with or face ostracism as a ‘racist’, ‘homophobe’, etc.
They’ll make it work.... as long as the end result is a greater number of Leftist voters and the eventual destruction of America, they’ll make it work.
I tossed mine. Update pending.
That's a common-law marriage in 11 states and the District of Columbia.
Fake but true.
I would love to SS#’s for my 2 cats
For marital status, I checked “OTHER” and added “living as interactive placeholders until the Great Hospital Opens”.
our children are listed as “Raggedy Ann” and “Andy”. I am SURE no ACORN processing people will recognize that as a joke, but instead declare, “why I know those people, I signed them up to vote!”

Stoat here says to read the whole article. I humbly admit I haven't yet, it's been a long day. But I promise to read it tomorrow! Sick and insane - it's so far beyond that.
We did the census and said that two people lived here. DIdn't offer any more info. I didn't even look at the papers. If they come here they won't get in because there's a gate and 250 of path to get to the cabin.
Why send the form in if it’s going to be filled out incorrectly. Sounds like they are doing this to be able to count a person as a different sex, etc regardless of what they really are.
I am beginning to wonder if the smart train left these people at the gate.
Do they have a box labeled “White Christian Heterosexual Married”??????
Because you have DARED to ask a hetero-normative question which could conceivably cause emotional distress to racial, sexual and religious minorities, you have been classified as a HATE CRIMINAL and will be immediately arrested for transport to your area's nearest Diversity Reeducation Gulag, where you will begin an open-ended stay under close supervision, heavy psychotropic medication and severe disciplinary oversight.
Please immediately sign over all of your personal assets to Government control, remove all articles of clothing, wear only a cheap hospital gown and stand outside your front door patiently as you wait for Diversity Police Pickup.
Be advised that failure to comply with these instructions or any abusive language directed at Diversity Police representatives will result in additional criminal charges against you and a dramatically-escalated disciplinary focus.
Thank you for your cooperation.
“Imagine we had two pillow biters in our town in 2000, but now we had six of them. If we didn’t return the form, we wouldn’t know how many pillow biters we had. If you don’t return the form, we don’t get our fair share of funding for things like gay parades and bath houses.”
Thank you. Now when that stupid "buses" commercial comes on I can remember this and laugh instead of screaming at the morons "That's not the reason for the census you idiots! It is only to determine representation in congress and any other use is unconstitutional"
My daughter thanks you also as she will be able to stop covering her ears whenever that stupid commercial comes on.
This violates the 14th Amendment. As the Boston Globe found out when it tried to offer benefits to Gay couples that were living together. But not Straight couples. Why not just count Gays in the Census so we can get the true number of their population?
Because then we would also have to count chess players, auto mechanic hobbyists, back woods hikers etc and every other practicer of a chosen behavior.
The constitution does not segregate people by behavior. Only by age and sex.
The main point of the census is to say who lives where, the government probably doesn’t care if they check husband or wife, they’ll just count it as part of “X People live in this area”, along with everyone else.
I forgot I posted that. Glad I could be of some help. Haha.
That’s a classic!
I was ready to do something subversive, but realized they asked fewer questions than they asked my ancestors in the 1800’s. They didn’t even ask about the bathrooms, like usual.
On tonight’s news they showed people of mixed race filling out the forms. Some were checking a box for each origin they happened to have. One checked four boxes. I wonder if the gov’t will count him as four people.
You need a goldfish first.
You don't think so?... You WAIT AND SEE.
