YOU GO CALIFORNIA!!!!

Same sex legalized in California!

GUIDSKJL!!!!! YAY!!!!

People are already trying to change this, wanting to put it on the ballet to change California's state constitution to read that same sex marriage isn't allowed. It saddens me that close minded people would try to do this. I hope their plan fails.
In the meantime....YES!!!!! You go Cali! :D

I was so happy when I heard about this! I wish Michigan were more progressive. Our governor is great but the people voted a few years ago to state that marriage is only between a man and a woman and then just recently the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that "single" parents can not share insurance benefits (or something like that) which really affects more than just the GLBT community. It's awful. :(

You mean parents that aren't married? That's terrible! America loves to think it's so forward thinking, but in some aspects, it really isn't.

Awww, is that the Care Bears star? :3

I found an email that said exactly what happened: The Michigan Supreme Court ruled upholding the Court of Appeals decision denying health care benefits to unmarried couples.

I just can't believe it. It affects so many people.

And yes, it is the Care Bears star. :) I don't have a gay pride icon added to my userpics (I keep forgetting!) so I use this one for now!

Isn't that discrimination? How can you deny health care to someone just because they're single? wtf? Their law is unconstitutional.

You would think so. I don't know how they can do this.

My health insurance is similar, it says "insurance benefits may be shared by one legally married opposite sex spouse." NY probably did a similar thing, since they recognize some sort of partnership but not such that one can have insurance or the same rights in health decisions, etc. (at least that is my understanding from health care stuff).

Time to start your own rally in support.

I've always wanted to go to Boystown! I'm seriously considering moving to Illinois after I graduate. My sister lives there (in Bloomington, I really like that town), there's no smoking in public places, there's Chicago...awesome

The ACT has just done something similar actually. It's not quite marriage as such but it's something fairly similar.
