You can call a cat a dog …

“Who is to say what marriage is?”

Some find it discouraging that names can be changed. Yet isn’t it encouraging that things don’t change just because names do?

You may go ahead and call cats dogs. But then we’ll need a new word for the kind of dog that wags its tail and doesn’t say “meow.” They haven’t become the same thing.
