Congratulations, New Hampshire!

Quote
The bill, which will now head to the Senate, passed by a seven-vote margin. Gov. John Lynch, a Democrat, has said he opposes same-sex marriage, but he has not said whether he would veto a bill allowing it. He supported legislation two years ago that legalized civil unions for same-sex couples, and a spokesman for Lynch indicated yesterday that the governor was satisfied with the status quo.

Two more hurdles to go.  Can we wait for the thing to become law before handing out medals?

That remains to be seen.  I don't know how things work in NH, but I'm guessing a ballot initiative to overturn it is just around the corner.

And Iowa's Supreme Court unanimously overturns the state's ban on gay marriage.

This is significant not just for Iowa being a "heartland" state, thought of as indicative of the state of the entire country, but also because Iowa has no residency requirement to get legally married there.  Anyone can roll in, get hitched, and then sue their own state in federal court to recognize it.  And I'd expect that to start happening.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Another state overturns gay marriage, and then my roommate tells me he's considering trying Homeworld and Eve Online.

Summary and analysis of the decision.

Some really great quotes there, worth a read.  They're not fucking around with this.

Vermont Legalizes Gay Marriage, Overrides Governor's Veto

Quote from: HuffPo
Vermont on Tuesday became the fourth state to legalize gay marriage and the first to do so with a legislature's vote.

...

Vermont was the first state to legalize civil unions for same-sex couples and joins Connecticut, Massachusetts and Iowa in giving gays the right to marry. Their approval of gay marriage came from the courts.

Damned activist judges politicians.

I should probably find something better than Wonkette to read, but I can't help it thanks to stuff like this.

Quote from: Wonkette
“There’s storm gathering. The clouds are dark, and the wind is strong. And I am afraid.” Well maybe you shouldn’t stand in an open field during a lightning storm DUH.

For something so afraid of homosexuals, that ad was incredibly gay.

Apparently Youtube had the greenscreen audition tapes for those "real people", but they've been pulled from a copyright claim.

Oh man, this is great.  Apparently the National Organization for Marriage or whatever (the people behind the "Gathering Storm" commercial) are calling their anti-gay campaign 2M4M, completely unaware of what M4M means.  NOM is the best gift conservatives could have given us since Glenn Beck.  Christmas came early this year!
