Jeffrey Kosbie examines the ways in which the meaning of marriage is constructed by Mass Equality, the social movement organization behind the campaign to protect marriage equality in Massachusetts. He finds that Mass Equality defined same-sex marriage as a “battleground” issue that was important not because it represented the assimilation of same-sex couples into the mainstream, but because it garnered significant opposition among the general public
