fox-news-lesbian-wedding-accident

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.
