Home Sweet Home

Hi Folks!

Important NewsflashMassachusetts, my home state and the first to legalize gay marriage, is also the first state to sue the U.S. government today over a federal law that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman!

This AP article states, the federal Defense of Marriage Act interferes with the right of Massachusetts to define and regulate marriage as it sees fit, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley said. The 1996 law denies federal recognition of gay marriage and gives states the right to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. 

"They are entitled to equal treatment under the laws regardless of whether they are gay or straight," says Coakley.

See? One thing about us "bleeding heart liberal" Massholes is that we aren't afraid to tell people about themselves. We even take immense pleasure in doing it to each other, and our accent gets even HAHDER the more pissed off we get.
