I could understand why people would get annoyed about this, but for me personally it is something of nothing. Though obviously I'm not able to comment in any great detail on this particular issue, not being interested in entering into a civil partnership/gay marriage/whatever. But to be honest, if I ever get married, I couldn't give a toss what name it's given. It is what it is, and as long as it remains the same in substance, the name of it really would not bother me. However, this is probably just a question of personal preference, nothing to do with your sexual orientation or any other factor.
