Mary Bernstein and Mary C. Burke analyze cultural representations of and discourse about gay marriage in mainstream and LGBT newspapers in Vermont. They find that normalizing arguments predominated in mainstream newspapers, yet marriage equality activism was ultimately responsible for making the public aware of the criticisms that have been leveled against marriage by LGBT activists.
