I use a lot of symbolism in my writing, but sometimes I think I have been too cryptic. Here are some hints:
The Mascot: The donkey with a cardboard tube duct-taped to its head represents same-sex marriage, which we are expected to pretend is a real unicorn, male-female marriage.
The Honor Code on Trial: With the current direction of our society, BYU and other religious universities that expect their students to reject same-sex sexuality are under looming threat. If you understand my essay Identity Shells and How They Are Used Against You, then you should understand this story.
Invest in Oxygen Masks: One of the ways in which state marriage laws that limited marriage to male-female couples were attacked is by claiming there was no rational basis for states to have those laws and that they were therefore invalid. But the inability of a judge to identify a rational basis for a law favoring male-female couples (the only pairing of humans actually needed for the human race to survive) reflects a deficiency in the rationality of the judge, not the law.
Dandelion Seeds: The dandelion patch are those who claim to have been born gay. The grass is everyone else. The dandelions are same-sex attraction. And the dandelion seeds that have been spread all over the yard? You decide.
