"BWAH!" of the day.

I so do not envy this judge.

The short version is, two women want to get married. Except, they're both transgendered men. EXCEPT except, one of them has already been legally registered as female, while the other is still legally male. Which means LEGALLY, even under the current government regime, they can get married. And oh, the brouhaha. State government is trying to void the marriage license and fine the "official" woman for "falsifying information" on the license, based on birth legal status instead of current legal status.

I just think this is a brilliant wrench in the current legal system. And I don't mean that in a Springer-like way, because I think this could be a benchmark in marriage rights. But I also can't help giggling hysterically when I imagine the facial expression of the judge in Podunk, Kansas when this crossed his desk.
