today, vermont legalized gay marriage, overriding the republican governor's veto with a 2/3 majority vote in both houses.

i am surprised. i didn't think they had the votes. an extra thank you! goes to the people who switched sides, for realizing, if late, what the right thing to do is here.

also, the district of washington's council voted unanimously to accept gay marriages from other states.

the good dreamwidth thing for the day:

the diversity statement. i think it rocks like a totally rocking thing.

We welcome fans, geeks, nerds, and pixel-stained technopeasant wretches. We welcome Internet beginners who aren't sure what any of those terms refer to.

We welcome you. You may wear a baby sling, hijab, a kippah, leather, piercings, a pentacle, a political badge, a rainbow, a rosary, tattoos, or something we can only dream of. You may carry a guitar or knitting needles or a sketchbook. Conservative or liberal, libertarian or socialist — we believe it's possible for people of all viewpoints and persuasions to come together and learn from each other. We believe in the broad spectrum of human experience. We believe that amazing things come when people from different worlds and world-views approach each other to create a conversation.

and more. i have to keep myself from copying it all here, because it's all important, and it contains many reasons why i love dreamwidth already.
