Equally Wed


Well, this is awkward. Fox News ran an article on how feminism has made heterosexual relationships and marriage so challenging. To illustrate this point, the conservative news source ran a photo of a lesbian wedding. A wedding that Equally Wed featured last year, when Alaskans Stephanie Figarelle and Lela McArthur became the first same-sex couple to marry at the Empire State Building. 

Gawker.com snapped the screenshot before the site could change it to stick figures of a man and a woman to help author Suzanne Venker make her point that "feminism didn’t result in equality between the sexes – it resulted in mass confusion." Ah, yes, it's definitely the feminists who are confused. Not the web editor at Fox News who sweetly proves our point: Love is love.

View our story of Stephanie and Lela's wedding atop the Empire State Building - the first same-sex couple to marry at the art deco icon.
