Dept. of W00t!!1!


I might have wanted more of them to understand the idea of rights for all, but I'll take a 5-4 decision: SCOTUS rules in favor of marriage for everyone. 

There are too many things out there that need fixing and fighting to spend too long celebrating, but allow those of us who live in the U.S. at least a while to breath out a sigh of relief, to indulge in some fist-pumps, to hug each other and cry or dance in relief. 

Then let's get on with continuing to make our corner of the world better.

So happy to see something that benefits ordinary people, for once!

I was so very pleased that all through what was otherwise a bit of a trying day, I had an incredible smile on my face.

I was in the file room when my boss called out to me to come look at the news. I'm in tears now. SOOO HAPPY

This is the second time in a period of days in which Martin Luther King Jr.'s comment about the moral arc of the universe being long, but bending toward justice has seemed to be appropriate. There are a lot of tears of joy out there today!

What a time to be alive. I've got the biggest smile on my face right now.

With all the sadness, violence, and death in the world, isn't it wonderful to be excited about something so life-affirming? Woo-hoo!!

It's great news.

Oh, it really is. It's something I seriously thought would take a lot longer than it has, and I'm so glad to be proven wrong.

I'm dancing fist pumping from the other side of the border.

Heh - from one happy Canuck to another!

SCOTUS rules in favor of marriage for everyone.

Is that right? Fathers can marry daughters? Mothers can marry sons? Siblings can marry each other? We can marry 3 people or 10? How about grandparents and grandchildren? Well, you did say everyone, right?

What idiocy.

Hello there. Most folks who wander in here usually take the time to introduce themselves, to get to know me and such. Checking your LJ, and your house rules, I see that you generally ask visitors to your internet house to honor the same type of rules. It surprises me, therefore, that you have come in and commented so forcefully, without treating me to the introductory courtesies with which you expect others to treat you.

You are obviously upset about the decision today. I don't know whether your anger caused you to visit the journal "homes" of other people with whom you normally don't interact. I don't know why you chose to try to interact with me in this fashion. All of that is probably moot.

I am sorry you feel the way you do. I'm not sure there is much more I can say, but I will say that I wish only the best for you in the future.

It's so exciting it just doesn't even feel real to me yet. I'm still waiting for it to really sink in.

It's a little unreal, because I truly didn't think it would come this quickly, especially with the make-up of the current SCOTUS. So, yeah, rejoicing; love wins!

This was just the best news ever!! I actually CHEERED. I was also confused, but you know...SCOTUS.

Thank the heavens this came through! And it was just one in a few surprises that court had for us. They have put through such terrible decisions the last few years, I hadn't dared to hope -

But I guess miracles DO happen, Virginia!
