Health care powers-of-attorney, also called medical proxies, are 100% . File a copy with your hospital and your doctors. Keep one in your car glove compartment. That was easy.

Fine, and that has to be done by adult children regarding their parents.
But we're talking about spouses, and since you find the matter so simple then I guess you won't mind heterosexual married couples having to file medical poa forms like everyone else. Since you find having to do so such a non issue.
Because, again, everything defamation or nitpicking bigotry you level at lgbt people applies just as much, if not moreso, to str8 people.
And blood relatives often challenge medical directive naming non relatives who are not spouses...usually, but not always, in the case of same sex couples.
But we'll have all this worked out soon enough and you're old and will be gone soon, too.

Happens all of the time, even if spouses are named. If you hurry, you can catch up with and get back on that turnip wagon.

Not successfully with spouses, and not nearly as often as with other family members or same sex partners.
The point was not whether you lie that you have filed a medical power of attorney regarding your legal spouse, which would be unnecessary (if you were married to a member of the opposite sex in the first place,) the point is that you're applying a different standard to lgbt people than you do to str8 people, as you do in every context.
Because you merely have a profound sex disorder.
