Dave!Current polling shows that Washington's Referendum 74 is running 15 points ahead for approval. If this holds up come voting day, Washington State's marriage equality law will be upheld and it will be legal for two consenting adults to marry... even if they both have a penis or both have a vagina.

This would make me happy for friends of mine who have been wanting to get married... but can't because the person they love has the same genitals. Apparently this is reason enough for a couple to be deemed unworthy of marriage, which feels kind of petty considering that Washington State has one of the highest divorce rates in the nation (we're #15!). But, whatever. It would seem that some people feel the way to "save marriage" is not to work on keeping their own straight marriages from failing at such an alarming rate... but to instead prevent others from getting married.

The mind boggles.

All I know is that there will be much bitching and crying in Redneckistan if Referendum 74 passes.

Which is good enough reason for me, so here's hoping.

    Ohio has a constitutional ammendment banning marriage equality … as I recall we took that step back in time around 2009. Work is afoot, however, to get the ammendment overturned.

    Maybe in a couple of years.

  2. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I fail to see how allowing same sex couples to marry will have any impact on anyone’s lives whatsoever. What’s the big deal? How exactly is banning it “saving marriage”? Just boggles the mind. It really does.

    I hope this passes!

    Really hoping this will pass so we can get past this hate.
