Really son? And I sure hope young teenage girls instead get allowed to be stripped naked and cuddled by men at random!

Note to Lisa Leff: I have to take issue with the use of the word "windfall" in the title of your article. To me, windfall has a connotation of something undeserved. What we're really talking about is more like "back pay" - something you should have had all along but didn't get because of a bad, discriminatory law that was subsequently overturned. Discussions of reparations for descendants of former slaves or Japanese victims of World War II internment camps don't talk about windfalls. It's simple justice.

Now would that be $1million per couple or $1million per person? How long do you have to be gay and is there a signup sheet somewhere? They removed the marriage tax penalty - right?

The goverments!
Are you inferring that Gay People who pay taxes (typically more than non-gay people) to the government don’t deserve to receive equal benefits?
