ZOMG Florida!!!
First same-sex marriages, this afternoon.  (One of the couples are friends of mine, and just the sweetest people!!)

12:01 am, Missy and I are officially recognized as married by the State of Florida, for what that's worth . . . but much more important, other couple can marry, here, without having to go to a different state.  I would have wanted to get married in Washington state in any case, but for many others, this is home.  It's where their hearts are.

They'll start issuing marriage licenses in some locations at 12:01, and mass weddings go off at 3 am!!  Sweet dreams for everyone tonight.  I can hardly believe it!

This is so incredibly ridiculous. I honestly can't see how something that's recognised on a federal level isn't recognised on a local level, that's just fucking insane.

Well, WAS fucking insane, at least the sex-same marriage bit! Racist, sexist, homophobic etc Conservatives in general are a bit harder to defeat I guess :(

It's still fucking insane in 24 of our states, but there are now legal challenges in every one of them. I spent a few minutes staring in astonishment at the newest version of the Right-to-Marry map -- it's still hard to believe how far we've come in such a short time!
