One more step for marriage equality

Late Wednesday night, the Connecticut legislature ratified the state Supreme Court's marriage decision. Like in Massachusetts a few years ago, legislators affirmed what neighbors had learned -- that extending civil rights to gay and lesbian couples is just, that it doesn't in any way whatsoever affect heterosexual marriages, and that all of the scary myths (did you see those NOM ads a few weeks ago?) are lies.

My only problem is with the journalists. Headlines blared "Legislature approves gay marriage."

Marriage isn't "gay" or "straight". It's just marriage, people. And in increasing number of states, it's legal for all of us.
