Question: What do you think of giving the domestic partners of homosexual UA employees the same benefits that the spouses of other UA employees receive?

Editor's note: Due to an error in Friday's Wildcat, several people were misquoted in the Viewpoints section. The section is reprinted below as it should have appeared. The Wildcat regrets the error and apologizes for any confusion that it may have caused.

"No, not until civil unions are legal. They're not recognized yet, so they shouldn't receive the same benefits."

"I'm for it. It's what they do in their bedrooms ... it doesn't really affect anything outside of it."

"They shouldn't get it; it's wrong. Gay people are gross. It's unnatural to be gay. They can't even get married ų why should they get the benefits?" Dave Shaw

"If they have a marriage license from another state, I say yes. But otherwise, no, if they're just partners. Other non-homosexual partners don't get those benefits."

"I think they should have equal benefits, but I'd also like to see gay marriage approved, so that it doesn't have to be some special exception because the world is homophobic."

"I think it would be hard for them to prove that they're together enough to get the same benefits; they're not even legally bound to one another."
