 As some of you may be aware, well known "conservative," columnist, and hard-core bigot Maggie Gallagher runs an organization known as "NOM."  Contrary to the name, "NOM" is not for kittehs eating cheezburgers but in fact stands for "National Organization for Marriage."  Their campaign uses many of the traditional stupid arguments to "fight" gay marriage.  With the victories for gay marriage in Iowa and Vermont in recent weeks the NOM people decided they needed to "step it up" a notch and launch a NEW branded campaign to "save" marriage.

     However, in a STUNNING show of ignorance the NOM folks decided to name their campaign "Two Men For Marriage" and IN THEIR OWN BRANDING call it "2M4M."  Yes, that's right, they named their anti-gay initiative with the acronym for "2 men for male," a personal ad code for a gay couple seeking a third for threesomes.  This's invited a bunch of scorn in the media, alongside what's being directed at other conservatives for calling their "anti taxes" groups "teabaggers," again missing out on the sexual context.

     More to the point, and THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP, they COMPLETELY failed to snatch up ANY of the internet real-estate related to the name!!!!  So my friend Chris bought http://www.2M4M.org and set it up as an ANTI-NOM site with education and facts to counter NOM's bigotry & fearmongering.  A friend of his set up an LJ com for it, http://community.livejournal.com/2m4m/, and Chris put it on Twitter http://twitter.com/2m4m.  A person or persons unknown also set up a blogspot for it: http://2m4m.blogspot.com/ with some content from the 2M4M site.

     This is where YOU GUYS come in... help us spread the word!  We need to socialize http://www.2M4M.org so when people search for it they find IT instead of NOM's bigotry.  So please visit http://www.2M4M.org, DIGG it, Delicious it, blog about it, link to it, pass it on to your friends, follow it on Twitter (it already has more followers than the official NOM Tweet), make it the defining destination.  Right now Googling 2M4M brings up this site and not NOM's, and we'd like to keep it that way.  Please help?

NOM's campaign is "Two MILLION For Marriage," Chris' site is "Two Men For Marriage."
