If there are a lot of King County votes still to be counted, I think it'll pass.

The last couple of years also saw Republican state legislatures imposing insane restrictive abortion laws left, right and centre. Ditto for immigration laws.

All of that was repudiated strongly last night. Every time that a SSM initiative lost at the ballot I said that while it was too bad, the other side was comprised of a dying breed of people. And we had the best ally on our side - time. Time waits for no man. We who are in our teens, 20s, 30s support SSM (and other progressive social issues) by a wide margin. We went to school with gays and lesbians, we call them our friends, our business partners, our coworkers. We have watched them build strong relationships, buy houses with their partners, marry them in states where they could and we have not seen our rights erode nor our societies fall into disrepair.

If you are against SSM today, that is your prerogative, but you have lost. Rightfully so. It really is over.
great post.

Just wondering, and if it's too personal I apologize, but do you feel the sudden urge to initiate sexual relations with women?

Somewhere, Laz furiously types out a response, continuously hitting backspace to improve his reply.

We had safe sex, with contraception provided to us for free thanks to health care reform.

There are 2,500 people working in this building; probably over half are women. I have to start small with my teammates before I can expand my sexual outreach.


In all seriousness, it felt really good to hug my friend who now can marry her long-term partner.

This. It's time to let it go and move on now, anti-gay marriage people. It really is.

And they can't even complain about "activist judges" or politicians this time around. They kept insisting, "Let the people decide, let the people decide!"

Well, they did. So now what do you say, conservatives?

I really do wonder, did the anti-gay marriage side honestly never even consider the possibility that "the people" might one day NOT vote their way?
