I hate my state.

Missouri is one of those piece of shit states that don't recognize gay marriage. And because of this the significant other of a State Trooper who died on duty gets treated like a second class citizen. He wasn't even mentioned in the obituary, despite them having been together 15 years. Instead of being given the survivors benefits(over $28,000/yr) he would have received he gets nothing.

Others say that domestic partners should not receive any more recognition than unmarried partners of heterosexual troopers, who would not be eligible for survivor pension benefits either.
This would be fair, IF GAYS HAD THE RIGHT TO FUCKING MARRY! The unmarried  heterosexual couples have the option of marrying and getting benefits. Gays are just shit out of luck. This shit sickens me.
