I think it's entirely nice, even though I *also* think it's several decades too late for it.

This, happily, is a battle that seems to be won. You need only look at charts that show approval of same-sex-marriage versus age, and you can clearly see that the scales are tipping steadily more in favour of it with every passing year. (if the 50+ generation got to decide, it'd still be outlawed, but if the 30- generation decided, it'd not even be a question, with approval-rates in the range of 80%+)

I admit it ! I *smile* in glee when reactionary conservative humanity-unfriendly old men (they're nearly always men!) gets their panties in a twist over something as obvious and simple as allowing people to love whomever they damn well *want* to love, and have it FULLY recognized as a valid choice.

And the smile turns to laugther, when they get smacked down, like happened a lot in these last few years, and will happen in *every* US state that doesn't already recognize same-sex-marriage.

Yes, that means these guys, who have RICHLY deserved it have on the order of 45 defeats to look forward to over the next decade in USA alone. I'll be there, cheering for every one.
