Unambiguously Gay Duo

MAP: Iowa and Vermont

On Friday, the Iowa Supreme Court shot down a ban on same-sex marriages and Tuesday, Vermont became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage through legislation rather than the courts.

Four states are now in the equal rights club: Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts and Vermont.

Andrew Sullivan has reactions to the Vermont legislative victory here and reactions to the court decision in Iowa here.

Progress marches on.

    Prepare for the anti-gay backlash though. There will be attempts to get it banned again in the state constitutions.

    God I can feel my heterosexuality being undermined already.

    Although admittedly it was pretty tenuous to begin with.

    Andrew: Ha!

    Ian: In the case Iowa, this was caused by an attempt to get it banned. Perhaps the homophobes are being undermined by their own tactics?
