    Do you agree with Boeing and their anti same sex benefits?

    Boeing has said that they won't be giving same sex married couples pension benefits. Do you agree?

    Good question, to which I must answer with a resound "no". In Australia such a statement would see you dragged before the Human Rights Commission. Doesn't the American constitution say "... that all men are created equal."? Boeing are based in Seattle if I am not mistaken, so how do they get around that?

    No. I am no different to any straight employee and will work just as hard.  Should I not be entitled to the same pension benefits for my same-sex wife?
    Thankfully, in New Zealand, this would be an employment rights issue (as well as a Human Rights issues), and would be grounds for a personal grievance.
    Why can't America get it right?
