Tonight, I am proud to be a Minnesotan. After the Senate passed the bill, rainbow flags went up on the bridge nearest me. They’ll be there all week.
Tonight, the governor signed the bill as he said he would. Thank you, Mark Dayton. Always knew you were one of the good guys.
I hear a HUGE party is happening at the capitol as people celebrate. I despise crowds, so I took a pass, but I’m jumping up and down about it. This is a first, very important step toward equal rights for ALL.
How was it possible all these years to treat some humans as less equal than others? To relegate them to second-class status–or worse–because of their sexual orientation? Because of the color of their skin? Because they were women?
Ever stop to think how things would be different if females ruled the world instead of rich white men? Or how about if gay people ran the world? Don’t laugh. A very few rich white men are calling the shots right now. It’s not completely impossible for gay people to work into positions of power and do the same.
Congratulations, MN. You’re on the right side of history.
