Woooty WOOT WOOT!!!
Becoming the 14th country on the planet to have their hearts in the right place. Sorry USA you don’t count – only 12 states out of 52 – we still gotta looong way to go.
Some dude decided the world had ended because a bunch of people who love each other were allowed to get hitched, and offed himself. I won’t repeat the things I said when I first read that news. It won’t help the cause, and it might get my Ally Card revoked. I blame my exposure to American society that can render me heartless and cruel at times. Moving on.
I have this love/hate relationship with France. Or maybe hate is too strong a word. More like love/disappointed. I consider myself a francophile, parce que j’aime beaucoup des choses francais. The people, the language, the food, the wine the landscapes the chateaux dans la vallee de la loire.
I also know they are a very very white country. They like many countries in Europe colonized lots of places around the world, and now have unfortunately racialized immigration issues in the present because of it. I also know they are prone to do stuff like THIS from time to time as well. So I get disappointed. So my love is tempered.
But it is still the first choice of countries on my Ditch Outta Dodge list. And they just got a whole passel of brownie points for legislating on the side of equality and that LOVE thing the French are always rattling on about. C’est L’amour what can I say? And the first French baby born in 2013 had two moms :) I’m glad they can get officially married now YAY!!
