Legislators vote to defeat same-sex marriage ban (via [livejournal.com profile] jenwrites)

Part of me worries about what back room deals enabled the vote to fail by 5 votes. Part of me is disgusted that those who would take away my rights still maintain the charade that this is somehow about the right of voters to have their say. (For one, we voters had our say when we voted for our legislatures.) I'd be more sympathetic to that argument if they wielded it consistently. Besides, it never occurs to them that if they disenfranchise gays and lesbians, it means others can disenfranchise them. Is that the road they really want to walk down?

However, all of me is just plain happy that the legislature, today, did not allow the state of Massachusetts the chance to create second-class citizens. I'm sure someone will keep flogging the horse, dead or not. But this is good news.
