Why Does Maggie Gallagher Not Wear a Wedding Ring?

Maggie DER!

I asked an honorary MoHo if I could post his creation. For those of you who don’t know dear Maggie (also referred to as Slaggie Gila Monster), she’s the current acting president of the National Organization for Marriage.

Although she is THE proponent for “Traditional Marriage,” married Maggie wears no wedding band. Ever wonder why? Here are the results of our survey of her friends and family. When asked why she does not wear a ring, they responded:

she is such a foul human being. UGH.

I personally prefer the "brass knuckles" answer.

In all seriousness, the sad part about the not wearing a wedding ring thing is that the "real" answer is, what makes a marriage valid, or not, isn't what's on the outside but the intent of the two people involved. Gosh, it's too bad she can't understand that, herself. Rings (and genitals) don't make a marriage. Duh.

Look on the bright side: maybe, some morning in the near future, she'll swallow one too many Krispy Kremes and explode.

Q: This is just the first in a series of Maggie-bashing posts.

@C.J.: You are exactly right on the overall ring issue. This idea of "tradition" is a very interesting one in that often traditions are invented only to prevent change. Why don't we engage in arranged marriages and dowries? They don't suit the needs of the majority, I suppose. I think the same will be said of ridiculous laws guided by genetalia in the not-so-distant future.
