Can only opposite-sex couples achieve a real marriage? In their article, What is Marriage?, Robert George et. al argue that same-sex couples cannot achieve a real marriage. Here I rebut their conclusion, and show:

The authors' reasoning includes, rather than excludes, same-sex couples
The authors' reasoning leads to the untenable conclusion that a woman with vaginal cancer who has a vaginectomy should be barred from receiving a marriage certificate.
The authors rely on a flawed understanding of natural selection, the process that evolved sex in the first place.
