Equality in America

Congratulations America, DOMA is DEAD.

The Supreme Court made their decision, 5-4, striking down a federal law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. How fantastic. There are still 38 states who do not define it as well as we would like, but this is huge progress. I celebrate with my friends, family and strangers who support equal rights for all Americans!

Let’s hope, for the individuals who do not support this ruling, that they come around to understand that love is for everyone, and rights are to be equal. Each person deserves happiness no matter how they live their lives, because it makes them who they are. The Washington Post has a great article.

Congratulations America, we are finally getting the idea that love is love.
