I nearly snorted my coffee through my nose when I read Lynn D. Wardle’s explanation that a traditional marriage "lays the foundation for the equality of both genders and for equal respect for the contributions of both genders throughout society" ("Illegitimate and wrong marriage rulings," Opinion, Jan. 5).
Equality and respect for both genders when women were and still are sold into marriages; when "What a Woman Wants" expo encourages women to "look pretty" and make delicious meals, but not once informs them of careers or life choices that do not include marriage and/or motherhood.
Gender equality in Utah is so 18th century.
