Since I blogged about how surprisingly awesome it was that Ireland allowed gay marriage, I better mention how, happy, relieved, surprised I am that the neighbors to the south did the same as well. I thought the religious right would prevent it, so I was really shocked to suddenly hear marriage was now an option for gay people. Plus, how inclusive could American culture get, to have a black president come out to announce a gay marriage law and do it in a respective, reflective and positive light. Really, if I told you ten years ago this would happen, would you have believed me? No, you would have thought I was a naive Canadian who knew zip about the U.S. Most of all, I really have a soft spot for my fellow bloggers and so I was excited that this step towards being fully included into society was given to my Yankee doodle blog buddies. I think the best way to end this post is to quote a great line I heard on a news cast, "remember this is no longer gay marriage, it's just marriage for two people who love each other".
