Today in the Radical Gay Feminist Agenda

[Content Note: Homophobia; anti-feminism.]

Sounds legit:
"By 2020, [feminists] want 50/50 in the state houses and the U.S. House and Senate. They want 50 percent women and 50 percent men, they want 50/50, they want equality," [Iowa Republican National Committee member Tamara Scott] said. "So my laugh is, then why wouldn't you want equality in a marriage? Why aren't those same women wanting that same argument at home? Because we know children do better when they're raised by their biological parents."

This led [RNC member Carolyn McClarty of Oklahoma] to explain that "the extreme feminist movement and the gay liberation movement really is using same-sex marriage as a way to destroy marriage."

"The feminist movement, they've been against marriage from the beginning, against traditional marriage, and it was up until the Massachusetts court case in 2003 where they recognized same-sex marriage in Massachusetts that they kind of changed their tune," she said. "And now they see that this would also destroy marriage, so they're for same-sex marriage."
Well, it's always fun anytime we pretend that feminists are monolithically united on any issue, but I'm just going to speak for myself here, because I'm just that kind of a pain in the ass: Advocating for an expansion of marriage is not engineering its destruction. Two plus two does not equal zero.

That said, if we're talking about the destruction of the institution of marriage as previously defined—the transfer of ownership of a woman from her father to her husband—then I am GUILTY AS CHARGED for being all the fuck for the destruction of the institution of marriage.
