While we weren’t looking

Congratulations to the Americans. One hopes all goes better with President Obama.

In other political warfare, we wuz ambushed in the open. California, Florida and Arizona in the last week passed or amended legislation to effectively ban same-sex marriages.

Less than half a year ago, the Supreme Court of California held that such a ban was unconstitutional for California, and more than 18,000 same-sex marriages have been performed since. The same couple who brought that case to court will challenge the new referendum. It’s complicated. Legal scholars are analysing the process, not the content, of routes to getting this clearly discriminatory question to or above the court.

How many fucking times do we have to do this?

As often as it takes.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
