Both the Assembly and State Senate here in California for us homos to marry. Regardless of your position of marriage (I, for one, am completely opposed to marriage), this is an extraordinary move to get us homos equal rights. NOT the patronizing, condescending separate but equal “civil unions” which are a complete bureaucratic nightmare.
This is FULL ACCESS to the same rights the dirty breeders have. Take that Fundies!
