Hurrah for Iowa!
So Massachusetts, Connecticut—and, now, Iowa!—are officially the three coolest states in the union. I'm totally embarrassed for New York. Aren't we supposed to be, like, trendsetters or something? Lucky for me I'm really from Massachusetts. From Bay Windows:
The state supreme courts in New York, Maryland, and Washington State have ruled that laws banning gay marriage are rational even though the states’ reasons wouldn’t pass many people’s laugh test. New York, for instance, said banning gay marriage provided an inducement for straight people to marry. Washington said it "furthers procreation" among straights.So banning gay marriage puts straight people in the mood? Like a fancy over-priced homophobic perfume?
