It looks official now in WA state as well: You can marry your partner regardless of whether you are different or same sex. Starting Dec 6.
It's interesting. No hetero person, who I know here, has suggested to me they are aware of this. Even though they know I am officially domesticpartnered to my partner. You'd think SOMEONE would have the sensitivity to say, "nice - now you are equal here". It's not like they have to gay marry someone. My brother has also not said anything, although I'm not surprised about that.
I'm very glad. This affects a lot of people in a lot of ways. I hope there is a contagious effect to other places.
I've never understood how a religion can be "threatened" by voters granting civil rights to a group in another country. The only real threat to religion(s) is TRUTH!
IMO all the Cat-Licks, Muslims, and other groups are doing is showing the world that no matter how many adherents they claim (and how much cash they launder through the Vatican Bank), they are WEAK ... and running scared. They wouldn't be having these hissy-fits otherwise.
Horrified by voter approval of marriage equality in 3 US states, and loss of antigay amendment in Minnesota, NOM goes after Starbucks in arab countries. Advocate.com
"in Qatar, in the Middle East, we've begun working to make sure that there's some price to be paid for this. These are not countries that look kindly on same-sex marriage. And this is where Starbucks wants to expand, as well as India. So we have done some of this; we've got to do a lot more."
So, in order to punish an American company for supporting marriage equality in that company's home state of WA, Catholic shill NOM claims they are enlisting overseas Arab Muslims and Indian Hindus to support their cause. How? What happens in those countries when masses think their religion is threatened?

And a line from Magic's Pawn by Mercedes Lackey:
"If same-sex couples occur in nature, how can this be unnatural?"************************
I highly recommend this book, the first volume of "The Last Herald Mage" trilogy, to anyone who enjoys fantasy fiction, but particularly to young adults who are having problems accepting their sexuality, or having problems with other people accepting their sexuality. The main character is gay, and as you read all three books, you see him accept himself, mature, and become one hell of a hero.
I enjoy ALL of Misty's novels, and read each one at least once every year. They are not the usual fantasy stories...she has a wonderful sense of humor, and that keeps the stories from becoming depressingly grim. She also inserts all kinds of intelligent non-humans that resemble animals from our own world...I'm rather fond of the Firecats (of course), but they don't show up until very late in the (very long) Valdemar epic.
But back to "The Last Herald Mage" trilogy, if I had the means, I would give the whole set to every English-speaking gay adolescent just so that they could see that there's nothing "wrong" with them, and that there are many, many str8s who feel the same way.
Oh my goodness, Sentient, I do hope the laws change so that you can marry your parter. Personally, I am not into marriage, but for you, I am 100% for whatever makes you happy.
Great for Spain!
France... the jury is still out. maybe.
I think the US is. culturally, at least 2 countries, maybe 3. Progress is happening. *Even tho WA state, where I live, hasn't officially announced yet, I have to say it will be a strange emotional space for me, going from domestic partner to husband. Good strange. I don't know why that is. It has a completely different "feel". Assuming that happens.
Great news, Carlos! Another nail in the coffin for outdated and bigoted ideologies.
Thanks, amigo!It was expected but it is a relief nonetheless.
We have had equal rights (including adoption, yay!) since 2005, but the conservative party (now in office) appealed the law to the Constitutional Court, that just now has backed the law.
Some good news from Spain^^
I just watched this excellent film and recommend it.
