Ding Dong DOMA is DEAD!!

The Defense Of Marriage Act - that stopped federal recognition of any state's same-sex marriage law, has been struck down by the Supreme Court. The decision declares the relic was a "deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment." This means the federal govt can no longer discriminate against legal gay marriages. They can actually file joint federal tax returns. I'm most thrilled for bi-national same-sex couples who can now grant their spouses citizenship like EVERY OTHER MARRIED COUPLE. No more marrying lesbians to stay in the country!

California's malevolent Prop 8 was also essentially told to fuck off.

I feel so grateful to my friends and some family for all the support, efforts, money and energy put toward serving fairness. And all hail 84 year old Edie Windsor, who will go down in history as the hero who took down DOMA in the unfair aftermath of her wife's death.
