The US is changing

too slowly, maybe, but it’s really clearly changing on gay rights, and moving in the right direction. The Republican Governor of Utah just came out in favour of same-sex civil unions. Read that again: The REPUBLICAN Governor of UTAH just came out in favour of same-sex civil unions. Yeah, sure, it’s not marriage. But it’s a hell of a lot more than I thought I’d be seeing there anytime soon.

One thought on “The US is changing

  1. I think this is actually quite common, the religious right-ists that I know are all very much in favor of civil unions. As long as you don’t call it marriage, such that you keep it “separate-but-equal” they’re totally on board. It’s only when you hit the M word that tensions start to rise.
