I'll just let the FARK headline sum it up:
You're a county dealing with an eldery gay couple who are hospitalized. Do you c.) refuse visitation, disregard their wills, call them "roomates", sell their belongings, and allow one to die alone in a hospital without his partner?
I don't give a happy shit if they were gay or straight, sexually involved or chaste -- this isn't a sexuality issue. This is a freedom of association issue and a property rights issue and a due process issue.
