I blame the Internet for forever associating the sight of kittens with this tagline. How many kittens has this flirtatious thread killed already? ;)

Can I gay up the total at GW? I aim to please.

Because we're so hot we are attractive mating partners and thus are favored by natural selection.

Bakc home they're debating civil unions but the chair of the judiciary in the senate is an a**hole and it doesnt seem likely to pass right now.  :-[

In the vein of recent queer news, this is related.

The follow up:  I read somewhere that he was offered time on a radio show in exchange for not protesting and he took it, but I can't find confirmation of that.

'Tiki- where is 'back home'?

Bridget- I stopped paying attention to phelps long ago. The guy is just %$*&ing nuts.  He makes Jerry Falwell look like Nancy Pelosi.

Back home is PR. Sad news, the major newspaper surveyed and 82% of people oppose civil unions, 59% support a constitutional marriage ban.  :'(

Time will change things--as will a ridiculously talented group of LGBT lawyers.  dont fret.

At least the northeast is becoming gay mecca, Mass has marriage, NY is considering marriage (Spitzer is introducing it), NH is about to approve civil unions, VT, NJ and CT already have civil unions, and CT is considering approving marriage as well.

My home too (Rhode Island) is in a similar situation. The legislature just can't get the bills past the speaker. In the meantime, we're kind of there -- you can get married in Mass and have it recognized in RI. No other state can do that. It sometimes feels like that means more progress and sometimes feels like less progress than civil union states. Most of the time, less progress, since RI hasn't really done anything... we're just one of the states with gender-neutral terms codified in old laws.
