God dammit! How is my own straight marriage surviving? Not only is it surviving, I haven’t even noticed the slightest inconvenience from all these gay marriage bans falling. It’s almost like people of the same sex getting married doesn’t make a single, solitary, god damn bit of difference.
Add South Carolina to the mix: a federal judge just ruled the state’s ban on gay marriage violates the US Constitution, though a stay has been issued until Nov. 20. Here’s the ruling.
I’d like to take this moment to thank religious conservatives. If you guys hadn’t shown up in droves to affirm all these state amendments that were a clear violation of every guarantee to equality for which America stands, none of these lawsuits would have been possible. Gay people would still be unable to marry without your bumbling ineptitude.
And now we’re likely about 9 months away from marriage equality over the whole nation. Thanks guys. Couldn’t have done it without you.
