Wow that's a whole bunch. Wonder if most of the population is now in a legal area. Those 4 states plus the most populated city/county in Florida this week added to the list.

Yep, I wonder which groups bigots will start targeting now since they seem to have lost this one.

The narrative has already changed. It's now gone from "don't let those people harm our children" to "our religious liberty to discriminate against people is under attack."

That's part of what the Hobby Lobby decision was about.

The choice of whether and whom to marry is an intensely personal decision that alters the course of an individual’s life. Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance."
To which the defense responded (and responds in every case so far) by saying, essentially, "But... procreation! And... tradition!"

Wow, that's actually one of the best and most concise arguments in favour of marriage equality that I've seen. I may have to use that one in the future

Well it's a nice change from "Think of the children!"


Yea, well, I don't even want children. So nobody has to bother thinking about them on my account.
And the earth is overpopulated as it is, so by not procreating we're doing the earth a favour.

So is it gay pride week anywhere else in the world or is that just here for now? Seeing as the Toronto event was a couple weeks ago, I just wondered.
I'll be in Amsterdam this saturday, for the first time ever. Going with a couple of mates, should be a load of fun.
