Keep thinking of big picture
Box Turtle Bulletin has a pretty uplifting take on the same-sex marriage battle in the United States. According to the site, same sex partner rights are available to nearly half of the country. In the words of Timothy Kincaid: “So [the National Organization for Marriage] can proclaim ‘victory’ when they have an election in California or Maine, but this ball is rolling and the momentum is in the direction of recognition.”
The map to the right shows all the states (in color) that provide same-sex couple benefits.
The big picture is good. We need to keep remembering it.
