Marriage equality: Good for public health!

You know all those people who yell and scream at gay people for wanting the same rights and responsibilities as their straight counterparts?  You know – the haters at NOM and FRC and such.  They keep warning that, besides the sky falling, that gay people achieving equality will be a detriment to society.

Actually that’s not true.  But we all knew that; NOM and FRC aren’t above citing false studies and inaccurate statistics to fake a point.

But according to two different studies, both published in the American Journal of Public Health, shows that when marriage equality is the law, the men in the study were happier, healthier, and not only spent less on healthcare, but actually had fewer healthcare appointments.  That seems significant.  And it is.  And the kicker to it all?  The same wasn’t true for men who were in domestic partnerships.
