I already loved Maine, but now I love it even more: Maine, fifth state to allow gay marriage

"This new law does not force any religion to recognize a marriage that falls outside of its beliefs. It does not require the church to perform any ceremony with which it disagrees. Instead, it reaffirms the separation of Church and State," Governor Baldacci said. Separation of church and state FTW.


In addition to reaffirming my love for Maine, though, today I also had one of those "Oh my god, I love New York," moments. Where else can you find a sketchy wig shop run by rabbis, a store that sells every kind of lace you could ever imagine, and a giant comic store, all within a five-minute walk of each other?

Now that I've got my Yuuta wig, though, I really should start studying for finals...

Yeah, Maine is gorgeous in the summer, but I don't envy their winters. At the rate this is going, though, I think each victory is becoming less about what state you can now get married in and more about the general move towards allowing gay marriage around the country. :D; There was a whole list of states that are currently working on it in that article...

You can do it~ Seriously, you did a great job last year. The only reason it got a little messed up was because of me XD;;

Cool :D Still, 1/10 is not so hot... -____-;;; I mean, I'm not complaining, but I've yet to be REALLY optimistic since Prop 8. We'll see, that's all.

I know but it's really nerve wracking because I've never done such a huge mod before and I've never had to go so short-- I'm terrified the netting will show else it will just look shitty. @_____@

Yeah, I know...Prop 8 still puts a huge damper on things because it's like, what if other states that have gay marriage now turn around and do something like that? :/ So maybe I'm celebrating too soon, but it does seem like the trend is good at the moment.

There's a lot of hair on top, so hopefully that'll prevent the netting from showing too much. I'm sure it'll turn out fine~
