Happy civil rights spam

Me again, back already, I know, but there was a thing in the paper about civil unions being legal in Hawai‘i starting January 1st. Yay! I've somehow completely failed at hearing about this before now, although to be fair I was still in Oregon when Abercrombie signed the bill. Also I never read the paper, ffff.

Anyway, it's not marriage (and seriously, wtf is taking us so long? I blame the high percentages of Catholics and Mormons in this state), and we've already got a lesbian couple suing the state because of it (and more power to them, somebody should), but I'm inclined to think that all progress is good progress, so I'm in a good mood about it.

My grandfather would be pleased. ^_^ (Or maybe he'd be grumpy that it's still not marriage, but this is more of a result than he got out of that other governor, so you and me, Grandpa, I guess we'll take what we can get.)

So anyway, yay progress! Hopefully we'll take that next step soon. COME ON HAWAI‘I, YOU CAN DO IT. I know you're a bit salty since the gays stole the rainbow, but this is the Aloha State, okay, let's not hold a grudge.
