Gay Marriage passed in the NY State Senate last night. The only thing upsetting about this is that the majority of the representatives that voted No are from Upstate America. As my humble musings on this forum generally heep praise on our glorious nook of the world, this gives me pause to ponder. I guess that a byproduct of the old timey charm and working class glory of the region are vestiges of a brand of social conservatism that unsettles me.
I am ever the optimist. I believe that the true nature of younger Upstate Americans is to let all live as they please. I believe that this will shine through in the coming years and the passing of legislation like this is a harbinger of things to come. I think it is important that we always remember that the country (and the world) are watching our fair state. Upstate NY (not just LI, NYC, and the Southern Counties) should always put its toes on the compassionate and just side of line.
Anyhow, now some levity.
Firstly I believe there shall be a great increase in the use of the word "Trousseau" because it is a good word and it is fancy.
Secondly, will "Bromarriages" happen? I am imagining two died in the wool Brosephers hearing this news in a SUNY dorm somewhere, dropping their MGDs, and revealing their love to the world. Hugging it out and letting their popped salmon collars intertwine, becoming as one.
