I am very disappointed to see Genes Reunited carrying an advert for 'Coalition for Marriage' without a similar advert for Marriage Equality (not simply same sex marriage). The bill proposed by the coalition government is not redefining marriage, it is extending marriage to include all couples who love each other. Civil Partnership is not totally equivalent to marriage as there are some discrepancies with the transfer of pension rights and with pre-married trans-gendered people, wishing to stay together having to desolve there marriage and then have a civil partnership.
Should you be agreeable I suggest you contact an organisation such as Stonewall to see if they would place an advert with you.

I, and a number of my friends and contacts, are seriously considering withdrawing from Genes Reunited, so strongly is our feeling about this.

I hope you will give this serious consideration.

Best regards,

Anna Booth

GR don't put the ads on the boards themselves as this done by advertising agency and GR may not be aware of the ad you are talking about.

If you haven't already, it might be best to contact GR directly. Although staff members says that they read these boards, they haven't responded on them for a while.
