'One man and one woman' -- but who defines 'man' and 'woman'?

I was linked today to an interesting article relating the unintended side effects of DOMA-esque laws, where court rulings have given 'man' and 'woman' sufficiently rigid definitions that seemingly opposite-sex marriages are forbidden and seemingly same-sex marriage are protected.

I'm glad I live in Massachusetts. Things make more sense here.
