If You Don't Agree With The Law, Change The Meaning Of The Words

Apparently in Tennessee "equality" is only natural when it pertains to heterosexual couples. Even if the law states differently.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Four married lesbian couples expecting children through artificial insemination are suing over a new Tennessee law that requires using the "natural and ordinary meaning" of words in state law.

I have no idea what the fuck "natural and ordinary" means. Basically it sounds like it could mean anything a person wanted it to. Not really a good, clear and fair way to implement laws. One person's "natural and ordinary" can mean something quite different than someone else's. In my world "spouse" doesn't have gender context, in trump-merca it means a neat loophole to discriminate.

Making shit up isn't really legal, but it won't stop the GOP from wasting taxpayer time and money on rhetorical arguments for the sake of getting re-elected.
