The Associated Press on Thursday updated its stylebook so that married individuals will be referred to as husband and wife, regardless of whether they are in a same-sex marriage. The change comes a week after the AP received criticism for an internal memo designating the word "partners" for individuals in same-sex marriages.

So, who’s the “husband” and who’s the “wife?”

You can’t have two “yin’s” or two “yang’s.”

“Husband” and “wife” will now be synonymous?

Since when does AP get to determine words don’t mean what they actually mean?

Blatantly using language improperly, deliberately, to push an agenda.

What version of the Newspeak Dicionary are these people using?

The AP style book has to be exposed as a goebles tool of the left.

it establishes what is or is not crimethink laws.

There is no homosexual based marriage in a supermajority of the states and thus the style book is wrong in most states. In fact in some states forms that state otherwise or LEGAL DOCUMENTS that state otherwise are a crime.

Ahhhh? Isn’t ‘spouse’ a perfectly good non sexual specific word???

These dirtbags just do this kind of thing to piss off normal people.

BUT it is all about the sex -THAT is the only thing that differentiates the perverts from the normal people. Actually, the term disordered sex partner would be more appropriate.

I think AP needs more criticism. A husband is a male. A wife is a female.

Is it becoming obvious that same sex attraction isn’t normal and is most likely curable.

The sodomite that takes it in the anus will be the “wife”.
We are fallen so far into the pits of depravity there is no hope for this nation. God will return soon and put an end to all this wickedness. I am ashamed of that this country has became.

So Lincoln was supposed to have said

http://timpanogos.wordpress.com/2007/05/23/lincoln-quote-sourced-calfs-tail-not-dogs-tail/

If you call a calf’s tail a leg how many legs does it have?

The answer is, of course, 4, because as Lincoln pointed out, calling a thing something other than what it is doesn’t make it that thing.
