Daniel2009 dropped some brilliant snark over in my diary Straight seniors rely on domestic partnerships.
If they allow senior citizens to be domestic partners the schools will to teach kids about senior citizens having sex.

This was, of course, in reference to the “they’ll teach our chuldrun teh gay!” scare ads used so effectively in CA last year. But now that heterosexual senior citizens are part of the equation, am I alone in thinking that some most excellent parody videos are waiting to be made? I think the best way to illustrate the total absurdity of the opposition’s ads isn’t to talk about senior sex, but to simply talk about seniors getting domestic partnerships at all. What do you think? Below I’ve embedded one of the classics from the California Prop H8 campaign, but I’ve altered the printed transcript accordingly. Please feel free to submit your own script or video.
Narrator: Some say that seniors getting domestic partnerships doesn’t have anything to do with schools.
Teacher: But it has everything to do with schools.
Woman: After Washington legalized domestic partnerships for the elderly, our son came home and told us the school taught him that geezers can form families with grannies [image of book Teddy's Granny Weds Tommy's Gramps]. He’s in 2nd grade.
Man: We tried to stop public schools from teaching children about partnering elders, but the court said we had no right to object or pull him out of class.
Teacher: It’s already happened in Massachusetts. Domestic partnerships for senior citizens will be taught in our schools unless we vote No on the Love Referendum.
