I never took this class in law school. The fake reason is because it was so early in the morning. The real reason (I’m serious) is because Herma Hill Kay was teaching it and I admire(d) her so much that I wanted her to think I was smart. Obvious solution: don’t take her class. Yes, I needed more therapy (please keep all affirming comments to yourself — I am working on it!). The great news is that we now have a good working relationship (I think) through the ABF and she thinks I am at least passably smart.
But, if I had taken her class, I think I would have learned that THIS is the right outcome for a state that does not have same-sex marriage.
