    Hey I voted for that in Maryland, I was promised cupcakes but i never got them. :(

    All seriousness though I'm happy for them, and i actually did vote to pass it in the state of Maryland.

    Marylands ballot actually came pretty close, If i remember correctly it was 51% For and 49% against so it really came down to the wire.

    Yeah, the irony is due to a decent amount of Romney white voters, who believed in gay marriage helping it pass.

    I just believe its a fairly religious state, not bible belt religious but one of the more religious states nonetheless.

    Not trying to sound offensive, but I'm surprised Oregon hasn't passed it by now. Isn't Portland like, the lesbian capital of 'murica?

    It is technically in the south... and it is pretty close to the bible belt.

    Shows how much I pay attention to these things. I'm an 80's kid, and I very much remember Portland being like, the evac point for all of my lesbian friends.

    We're actually a very interesting state in that regard, today we are whatever is convenient at the time. Pre civil war we were a southern state, during the civil war we were a slave owning northern state and now were a Mid-Atlantic state. I guess we don't really fit into traditional north/south stuff.

    Between insane and insecure
    Hopefully this will keep going and gay marriage will be legal in the rest of the America. ^_^
    But I am extremely glad to see some progress over no progress! :toot:
