In states with marriage equality, can prisoners marry each other?

MinnesotaPublic Radio

There can be a lot of definitions for sex offenders....  I doubt many are adults of the same sex interested in adults of the same sex.  But there are nuances in the article I didn't think of.

Ruth, that's hilarious.

If only they weren't religious.

Ohio forced to recognize 2nd same sex marriage.....  USA Today

Among the details...."The lawsuit argues that although same-sex marriages are not legal in Ohio, the state recognizes other marriages that it does not allow to take place in the state, such as marriages between first cousins or minors."

What next - same sex marriage in Mississippi?  Texas?  I can dream!

Maybe Hawaii will be next on the marriage equality express.  Or not.  It's been pointed out that a special session for that bill would cost every man, woman, and child in Hawaii 1.9¢.  That's a lot of copper.

Soon.....   Texas?  Well, maybe not.  But New Mexico...

I had a conversation with a pediatrician in my health plan, regarding whether the plan supports surgery for intersex infants.  He said they do not, unless the genitals are shaped in a way that does not allow urinary function or hygiene, and so would interfere with health or endanger the child.  I was happy to hear that. 

I wanted to advocate for resources for parents of intersex children, to support allowing the child to develop however their body intends.  Rather than surgically modifying the child to fit into an ignorant society.  He said they already have such support.  I was glad to hear that.

Susan, if the presence of intersex humans makes ignorant catholic heads explode, then by all means let's educate them.  I'll just wear protective gear - please, no brains splattered on my clean shirt!

I am sure the very thought of intersex makes their heads explode.

Germany added an option for Intersex as gender on birth certificates.  We need to do this in the US, and everywhere else. 

Not surprising, US Catholics oppose the law.

Like a virus, or kudzu, gay marriage continues to spread.  Now it's spread to a second New Mexico county.

The map in the linked article is kind of depressing.  But it will continue to evolve.
