Wow.  That Hawaiian legislator really leaves me scratching my head.  I think you're right, Daniel, she's not "all there."  Poor thing.  From reading the article, I get the impression that she's quite bizarre.  Time to replace her.

Hawaiian state legislator / openly Lesbian, votes AGAINST marriage equality in Hawaii, even though she's for it, because only 75% of her constuents support Marriage equality!  Maui wowie?  No work on her views about marijuana legalization, but I have a feeling she must be researching the topic personally....  Or something.  

This statement "“Has anybody been denied before DOMA or after DOMA — what has changed in our state? These are questions that I still have to settle in myself and that’s why I’m undecided.”  makes me think maybe she's not all there.

In the U.S. Senate, a few Republicans (along with most Democrats) did vote for the Employment Nondiscrimination Act today: (via Memeographs)

I'll add my welcome, Krozan! And it's great to hear about both marriage equality all but enacted in Illinois (Time says the governor signed the bill last night, but I can't find corroboration) and Germany going beyond the gender binary on official records.

A funny comment at Good As You yesterday:

billJohnson19D: Also the NOM backed Republican candidate for governor in VA lost and marriage equality advanced to the full house in Hawaii. Losses for NOM all around tonight, I hope they have their “we are so disappointed” letters all ready to go.

rmthunter: I'm actually waiting for Brown to come up with something about "activist voters" in Virginia thwarting the will of the people.

Carl,

Both stories are awesome! 

I've been hoping and hoping Illinois would pass marriage equality.  Having been born in Illinois, educated there, and lived a third of my life there, I still feel like I have one foot in the state. 

Well, maybe not a foot.  A toe maybe.

And the German precedent is so meaningful.  I think they are the first country to recognize intersex people.  I hope many more follow soon.
