So it was no surprise when we reported that gay Marriage and Gay Weddings were made legal here in the District of Columbia. Washington DC has almost always been a pretty liberal and progressive region of the United States. You get a ton of people moving here because of beliefs or ideas and those are usually pretty emotional and strong willed people and most of the time are opposed to something like fur, war, oppression, etc… so when you get a huge group of them together and they are mostly liberal. Then they all decide to actually move here and stay here, well not all but some of them are able to make it here, it isn’t actually a wonder that Gay Marriage was passed here in Washington, DC, it is more shocking that it took that long to pass gay marriage.
So anyways, even though I am not going to go on and on about gay Marriage being legal now in DC, mainly because I don’t think it is anything that is newsworthy since it was completely expected, I did want to congratulate all of the couples that were able to get their marriage licenses from the court house in downtown DC this past week and wish them all a fruitful and happy life.
For those of you wondering, Gay Marriage isn’t about being called marriage or married or even god or ruining religion for you, it is actually about protection and equal rights to health insurance, life insurance, death rights, parenting rights, social benefits, tax benefits, being recognized as a couple, hospital visitation rights, etc… Sure there is a ton of discrimination left in this world, but getting the right to marry and having the licenses actually handed out is a huge step forward.
