:) Their matching pink suits are both cute and creepy.

Haha, I didn't even notice that.

I also think it's good that certain well-known persons are adding a bit of positive high-profile publicity to the proceedings. Not in the sense that they're having big splashy ceremonies - most of them aren't - but that they signed up straightaway to be partnered.

The story about that first couple that legally partnered a few days back is rather sad.

You're right- about as perfect as one might imagine given the circumstances.

The peanut gallery would like Mr. Fallwell and Mr. Robertson to note that the Reverend Debbie had a wonderful wedding. Without frogs or tornadoes.

Oh, they'd probably claim there were frogs and tornadoes. It's just that they couldn't be seen by those with impure hellbound lesbian eyes.

But the buxom cheerleader bridesmaids could be...um, where was I?

I don't normally get teary at weddings or wedding photos, but waiting 16 years for official recognition? Misty-time. I'm happy for all of them.

i rather thought something similar would happen in the U.S. if the fundies would all shut the fuck up about it. But apparently we love telling people how to live their lives (abortion, iraq, etc.).

I'm still rather confused about who this "we" is, exactly. I mean, I know that most of my friends tend to be of a certain mindset and due to education and upbringing, are also not terribly representative of the so-called "average" American. Even though I understand this, often what's seen as the "average" American view seems terribly extreme to me.

It's always a good day when the sky isn't falling.

And, hello! Nice to meet you.
