Maybe the Religious Right has a point

Are gays trivializing marriage and young children as lifestyle accessories? D.C.'s power dykes certainly are:

Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts - After 15 Years, a D.C. Power Couple Decides to Go Their Separate Ways - "Elizabeth Birch and Hilary Rosen, Washington's first same-sex power couple, have called it quits after a 15-year relationship, according to people close to them.

Birch, a savvy lawyer, and Rosen, a high-profile lobbyist, glamorized the image of gay couples in the nation's capital. For almost a decade, Birch was director of the Human Rights Campaign, the country's most influential gay and lesbian political lobby. Rosen, as head of the Recording Industry Association of America, was one of the most effective corporate voices on Capitol Hill. As a couple, they were plugged into top social and political circles, which made them two of the most prominent activists for gay family rights.

Birch will continue to split her time between NYC and Washington. The two women, who declined to comment, will both raise their 8-year-old twins, Anna and Jacob.
