Gay journo (no relation) almost but not quite accuses gay lexicographer (no relation) of redefining marriage to suit his own activist agenda.

I would describe this redefinition as quite distinct from Katherine Barber’s rewriting the definition of marriage in the Canadian Oxford the day after its legal definition was altered by the courts.
