Queer the Census
George Takei and Brad Altman appear in perhaps the most memorable Census ad in history.
I’m a bit bemused at the notion that people should fill out the Census based on their own perceptions of reality rather than reality itself. I get that some gays consider themselves married even though they live in states that don’t recognize same-sex unions. But are heterosexual couples who aren’t married supposed to fill out the Census based on whether they think they’re married or whether they are married? For that matter, are we to fill out the Census on where we think we live or where we actually live? Or how many children we have, or have many we think we have?
