for Valentine's day

I thought this was a great idea.

I'm crossposting it to badgrrrls, gaySeattle, gaymafia, lesbianswithdisabilities, maybe elsewhere

Consider taking an ad out in your local paper for Valentines Day telling your partner/lover/girlfriend that you love her and would marry her if you could.

Article About Heterosexual and Homosexual Relationships

Obviously, this study contains issues with statistical validity and bias, among other problems; it's interesting stuff, though.
