No respect from IMDB, an Amazon Co.

Another blogger, Faggoty-Ass Faggot, started a campaign to contact IMDB on why the site doesn't recognize government sanctioned same-sex marriages or civil unions. FAF discovered that IMDB has a policy that says:
We are not yet accepting homosexual marriages until their status has been fully determined by legal challenges. Such unions, along with civil unions, can be noted as biographical trivia.

I received a pathetic response from Internet Movie DataBase. It is just a BS form letter. One thing I didn't know, IMDB is an Amazon company. Amazon has no problem selling gay merchandise and taking money from gays. But don’t expect any respect.

Your policy of not listing same-sex marriage or civil unions except as trivia is insulting and bigoted. Please change your policy to reflect the progressive changes happening in equality around the world. England, Canada and several other intelligent western nations now recognize same-sex unions.

I find that really disappointing, especially since IMDB is one of my favorite resources. Silly me, I like to look up actors' astrology signs :D

Anyway, I will think twice about using their site from now on. Thanks for following through.
