MAPS: The Layout Of Marriage Equality In Maine, Washington, Maryland And Beyond

Buzzfeed has some interesting infographics on the current state of marriage equality in America.

In the second map, we see that if gay marriage passes at the polls in Maine, Maryland and Washington—and in the courts in California—the percentage of Americans who live in marriage-equality land could shift dynamically by December 1. That should lessen the sting from the last map, which shows that currently, more than 65% percent of Americans live in places with bans on same-sex nuptials.

    Is there a particular reason you block comments on specific articles Dan, usually pertaining to Ohio?

    I don’t expect an answer obviously as I’m not one of the advertisers [Outbrain] who fund Queerty and are owned by the mormon church.

    @2eo: I cannot find any recent articles about Ohio. What are you talking about?

  • hyhybt

    Interesting. That article is indeed about Ohio; what it says about the Mormon church, or what it ought to say about it, I don’t see, and it at least *looks* like the lack of comments is a page defect, rather than their intentionally being closed (as that generally includes a message saying they’re closed, rather than one inviting people to start a thread.)

    The Morman Church has a lot of hypocrites which I saw in Idaho in 1955 when a witch
    hunt in Boise, Idaho arrested gays. 9 out of 10 of them were Mormans. I was 14 years old back then and I remember it well. I am a gay man and I was raised as a Morman in Boise, Idaho.
    After high school I spent four years in the Navy during which time I came out in 1960 in Washington D.C.. I was transferred to Boston in 1961 and I met my partner in Boston, 1962. We lived in Massachusetts all but one year which we
    lived in Seattle WA. We were married in 2004 in Cambridge, MA and are enjoying our
    retirement. It is wonderful living in a state that practices democracy.
