Hey Wisconsin, Iowa is more enlightened than we are!

Flash news from Iowa:

"The court first held that same-sex couples are similarly situated with opposite-sex married couples even though they cannot have children together because they "are in committed and loving relationships, many raising families" and "official recognition of their status provides an institutional basis for defining their fundamental relational rights and responsibilities." The court believed society would benefit "from providing same-sex couples a stable framework within which to raise their children and the power to make health care and end-of-life decisions for loved ones, just as it does when that framework is provided for opposite-sex couples."

In three weeks, same-sex couples will be permitted to marry in Iowa. But here in Wisconsin, we enshrined H8 in our state constitution. Way to go, you narrow-minded thugs. We will now spend 10 years, millions of dollars, and a lot of emotional grief to undo what you did. And rest assured, it will be undone.

In the meantime my gay and lesbian friends, continue loving one another.

  1. At least it shows the whole midwest isn't terrified of a very not-scary group of people! Suck it up, Wisconsin!
