A couple of hours ago, the California Assembly passed AB 849, the nation's first same-sex marriage law not prompted by a court order. We may have our problems, but this is one reason I love living here. Assemblyman Dennis Mountjoy (R-Paleolithic) provided the opposing argument:
It's not about civil rights or personal rights, it's about acceptance. They want to be accepted as normal. They are not normal.
Well, apparently they are, at least in California. Mountjoy, of course, is free to move elsewhere if he disagrees.
Rock on, California! The link to the article goes into more detail regarding the potential legal issues with CA Prop 22 from back in 2000. Interesting. I hope it holds up. There's not one good goddamn reason why two gay people who want to get married, shouldn't be allowed to. Not one.

. He really needs to go fuck right off.
