Interesting map

I found this map rather inspiring.  Ten years ago, the map would have been all one color.  Remember when Vermont civil unions created such a controversy with declarations of the end of the world as we know it?  Yes, equality is moving slowly, but we are moving, gradually, in the right direction. I know this is hard to read, so just remember that the red and pink states offer either marriage or civil unions.  That's almost a fifth of all states.  But also remember that not one same-sex couple in the country is recognized by the federal government. (Thanks to the Freedom to Marry Coalition.)


  1. Michigan is disappointing, for starters.

  2. I know. It's surprising since everyone I know from Michigan is so progressive and supportive. If I could, I'd put one of those smiley faces that winks here, but I just don't get that whole routine.
