    Just to add, it'll be nice when this doesn't have to be news and people wouldn't be surprised by something like this

    Looked for the "like" button and realized that this is WebMD.

    But anyhow, I'm also looking forward to the day when they don't even have to mention it because it's just what a percentage of the population happens to be.


    And in Kentucky, no less! Wow!

    I think it's awesome. I hate the idea of having to discuss with my children why some people are gay and some not. I hope we get to the point where it's normal and people don't question it anymore.
    previously mommyof3kiddos..then I had twins :) DS 4, DD 3.5, DD 2, and the twins

    Molly, not sure what site I read this on, but Lexington, KY has a higher per capita population of gay citizens than San Francisco. Granted there will probably never be a gay mayor in Hazard, KY, but Lexington is very diverse.

    The guy runs a crazy successful business. It would have been insane if he did NOT win. He has done things in the business world that many of us can only read about. He manages a multi-billion dollar business on a daily basis.

    I knew I loved you ladies!!!!

    As a black woman I hate when people are so against gays and gay marriage. Everyone deserves equality- I don't see racial, gender or religious discrimination as any different than sexual preference.

    45 years ago DH & I could not have married in many places in this country becuse of some people's idae of what a married couple should be. As the minority I wasn't seen as an eqaul, but really where would DH be without me! ;-)

    I think that if two consenting adults decide that they want to spend every single day of the rest of their lives with each other, possibly fighting the all too often urge to either run away from or stranglethe each other- they should be allowed to!!! :-)

    Shena1981 replied to VicsEandJ's response:
    I agree Vic. I just don't see how people don't realize this is the same as not allowing African Americans or women the same rights.OR why the gov't doesn't just say too freaking bad we're making gay marriage legal everywhere. Sometimes people just can't be trusted to do what's right and that's why the Civil Rights act was implemented. I could go on and on about this and I can't even stand when people talk about civil unions. Grrrr

    mol13 replied to Shena1981's response:
    Because calling the marriage of two women a marriage instead of a "civil union" is clearly jeopardizing the "sanctity" of heterosexual marriages. Even the ones where someone is cheating. Or someone is abusive. Or the marriage lasts for a month.

    Sing it, Shena!
