Slippery Slope? End-Around?

Anonymous had a fascinating comment on the post below, which linked to SJ's post regarding gender "choice" that may be starting in New York. Basically, if a person chose to be the other gender and followed through on this for two years, they could "become" the other gender. (Yeah, exactly.) Anonymous noted:
dont know if you realize but this is going to be the way that the liberals up in NY will be able to legalize gay marriage, all one "partner" needs to do i s act like the opposite gender for 2 years and they will be a the other sex.

slippery slope indeed!
That's fascinating, and seems to be logical. If a male "became" female, they could then theoretically marry a(nother) male, with no problem whatsoever. It's a very cute way around current laws.

Side note on the gender issue:
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority also agreed last month to let people define their own gender when deciding whether to use the men’s or women’s bathrooms.
I think this will lead to a whole lot of perverts going into the wrong bathroom and then claiming they're of the other gender. Wonderful.
