What's a way more interesting topic to be contemplated here is the implication the article gives us into social context of prisoner's rights in California. As one gay blogger wrote:
So..I cannot be legally married in 33 out of 50 States, but the mass murderer Charles Manson can legally marry some blushing little thing called STAR; while serving life in prison!!!??? Thank Almighty God that the Republican Party has worked so hard to preserve the sanctity of traditional marriage!!!
So, you see, this is why we did not post a link to the Rolling Stone article; there are so many more interesting things to contemplate than the drivel of a confused young woman and her hero.
