    Simple answer: equal pay and equal benefits for equal work and (in the case of benefits granted after a given period of employment) seniority. I don't care what colour you are, what's between your legs, or what's between your partner's legs.


    It's that fucking simple, now can we please stop all the bullshit?

    It's sounds completely illegal to me, but for some reason I bet they get away with it.

    Wanna bet if they'd done it only for the straights, the ACLU would be up in arms? Since the discrimination favours the gays, though, I'd be surprised if we heard a peep unless they're confronted about it.

    Sounds to me like they are getting hosed by the gov't and Google is making up the difference.

    Though I think it's lame they aren't extending it to heteros with domestic partners.

    Just give gay couples the same rights heteros have and this stuff goes away.

    lol ...

    This policy is a result of discrimination against homosexuals.

    Lose that discrimination first.
