have to lay down the case in front of them," Kolb said.
But Cropsey said he felt that state officials will ulti-
mately endorse the ban on gay marriage. Although the
Legislature - which is predominantly Republican -
has often found itself at odds with Democratic Gov.
Jennifer Granholm, Cropsey said the issue of gay mar-
riage has crossed party lines.
"From what the press was telling me yesterday,
Granholm believes very strictly in the definition
of marriage between a man and a woman,"
Cropsey said. "Which is exactly what the dic-
Jenna Bednar, political science professor at
the University, said she agrees that same-sex
marriage has become a national issue that blurs
traditional partisan divisions.
"At first, it makes it really hard politically to decide
who's going to support this case," Bednar said. "I think
it puts the Republican Party in a very difficult decision.
If they come out in opposition to gay marriage, then
they upset some libertarians of the conservative side.
... We're breaking apart the ideological spectrum from
the simple left-right division."
In addition, some University students said most vot-
ers support or oppose same-sex unions for largely spiri-
tual - not merely political - reasons.
"I don't think it's a partisan issue at all," said Nicole
Doozan, a member of the campus College Democrats.
"I believe as a Christian that the gay lifestyle is a sin.
Politically, I'm not sure I support (same-sex) civil
Doozan, an LSA sophomore, added that the
Massachusetts decision may convince many leg-
islators and voters to rule in favor of the Michi-
gan amendment proposal.
LSA junior Jeff Souva, co-chair of the Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Commission of the
Michigan Student Assembly, said University stu-
dents generally form opinions about gay marriage
based on party affiliation.
"At the University, (homosexuality) is definitely
a partisan issue if we're going to use the word
'marriage,"' he said. "But that doesn't necessarily
mean that the Democrats like the word 'marriage'
either." Apart from political persuasion, Souva
added that many gay couples do not even favor gay
"Not all people in LGBT are in favor of mar-
riage, because marriage is a sexist institution," he
said, citing traditional views of marriages as a hus-
band's dominance over his wife. "I would prefer to
see the definition of family be redesigned, rather
than see the 1950s nuclear family."
Although same-sex couples in Massachusetts will
soon be able to obtain marriage licenses, voters could
overturn the court's ruling through a 2006 ballot initia-
tive. Souva said a public vote may upset the efforts of
many activists and lawmakers to get gay marriage
accepted there and in Michigan.
"I'm afraid that what could happen is that the con-
servatives of our state, who are in support of the state
constitutional amendment, could use what happened in
Massachusetts as fuel for their fire and use it as a
means to rile up their conservative base and expedite
our amendment," he said.
Even if the Michigan Legislature does not put the
gay-marriage ban on the ballot, gay unions recognized
in Massachusetts would not necessarily be recognized
in Michigan or any other state. Under the 1996 federal
Defense of Marriage Act, the federal government rec-
ognizes marriage as the union between a man and a
woman - meaning that same-sex unions deemed offi-
cial by state law may still go unrecognized in other
Despite the Bush administration's support of
DOMA, the president has faltered on endorsing a
constitutional amendment - such as the one in
the Michigan Legislature - that would rigidly
define marriage as a heterosexual partnership.
If more states decide to follow in the footsteps
of the Massachusetts court, gay couples who
hold marriage licenses may run afoul of federal
officials refusing to acknowledge their unions,
She added that even if Michigan and other
states form their own policies on gay marriages,
the validity of those unions will very likely be
decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
"If a couple gets a license and moves to anoth-
er state, then this isn't played out at the state
level, this will go the Supreme Court," she said.
"I think we're going to hear about it in the next

uncommon" at the University,
"There is a trend toward a greater
variety of ages and more men
receiving surgery," he added, "but
there are still not that many students on
campus getting procedures done here."
The discrepancy between Univer-
sity and national trends can be
traced to the distribution of loca-
tions of surgical procedures.
"Clearly there are regional differ-
ences. Although the Midwest is slow-
ly catching up, it's still more common
on the coasts," Wilkins said.
Levey, whose hometown is Los
Angeles, received a nose job after
fracturing her nose in a high school
"Because nose jobs have always
been prevalent where I live, it was
immediately an option," Levey said.
"My parents even encouraged it."

tem to determine what is spam and what

"MSA does not restrict e-mail in our
election code," said Pierce Beckham,
MSA Rules and Elections chair. He
added that MSA campaign restrictions
address issues like posting flyers and
defacing University buildings.
Barrera said that, other than com-
plaints regarding mass e-mailing, there
have been no problems with elections.
"Overall, I'd have to say the campaign is
going very smoothly," Barrera added.
