Four wins for marriage equality yesterday are more than sweet. This surely is proof of the tipping point that has hung tantalizing close for so long.
- Maryland — Same-sex marriage legalized by ballot, to begin January 1
- Maine — The plug uglies trying to overturn the SSM law lose 53% to 47%. SSM stays the law.
- Minnesota — State constitutional amendment to forbid SSM loses 52% to 48%
- Washington State — SSM legalized by ballot 52% to 48%
Meanwhile, WWII and early boomer generations are dying off and/or mellowing in the face of reality. SSM hurts no one and nothing, and helps millions of couples and kids. Get with the program oldsters!
Overshadowed by Barack Obama's reelection and our MA win for Elizabeth Warren, marriage news was perfect yesterday. Americans are showing the savvy and compassion we all knew was coming. We impatient sorts are feeling much, much better.
