Finally they can all just be themselves.
 
2012-07-03 08:39:47 PM  
SOME gay people are ostentatious, but most are hard-working, normal people like the rest of us.

It's really perpetuating a bad stereotype when you use the term "fabulous" to denigrate them.

Preperation H stock skyrockets.

You mean they prohibited everyone in france before today? Geeze, talk about a self-hating jew.

The United States should do the same

make me some tea: FINALLY France is as cool as Iowa!


This was the first thing I thought. I just assumed it was already legal in France.

France accepts gay marriage. The UK will in the next few months. And the US is on the wrong side of history. Again.

/Weirdly, under the Code Napoleon, France has allowed gay adoption/partnership for years. Basically, any man could adopt anyone he wanted at any age (like the Romans used to do) so it was not uncommon for a gay man to adopt his lover, which then gave both men all the rights of family.
 
2012-07-03 08:45:21 PM  
So more boycotting of France by people who can't find it on a map to follow?
 
2012-07-03 08:45:21 PM  
Yay, another country ahead of the United States in equal rights.

And we're supposed to be the leader of the free world?
 
2012-07-03 08:45:52 PM  
Congratulations, France.
 
2012-07-03 08:46:19 PM  
MANIFIQUE!

They had civil unions before, enjoyed nearly all the rights of married couples, except for adoption, and maybe one or two other things. Straight couples also have access to the civil union thing, for whatever reason.
 
2012-07-03 08:46:51 PM  
Ahh, another country falls to the gay agenda. Your nuclear families are next, breeders! Muahahaha!
 
2012-07-03 08:46:52 PM  
Such a great victory for marriage equality. And I agree with Dwight_Yeast.. The US is still on the wrong side of progress.. but it's changing. step by step, inch by inch.. it's changing.

/not gay
//sex pos
///equality for all! :D

So sad, but so true.

You can't adopt in France?
If you are unwanted there, you shall remain unwanted

Don't fight it. Let the scales fall from your eyes. If you've just now realized that what you have been taught about America isn't necessarily true, you're on your way to being a true World Citizen.

Can you hear the French homosexual pedophiles cheering?
 
2012-07-03 08:48:38 PM  
Vive la justice!
Vive l'egalite!
Vive le France!

C'est bon! ^__^

This surprises me. That it didn't happen 50 years ago.

We are. If you're talking about prison populations and healthcare costs, that is.

There was this little conflagration that was kind of keeping people busy. Maybe you've heard of it?

Ok, well, the 500-to-1 longshot of being the last country to adopt gay marriage is out.

Taking bets!

4-to-1 Iran!
3-to-1 Saudi Arabia!
2-to-1 United States!

Hell, Ireland's got it planned. Mother farking more Catholic than the Pope Ireland will have same sex marriage before we do.

Catholic priests still can't marry them.

Oh and plus one for the headline.

First one today that made me *snert* aloud.

Much better headline.

/France Surrenders surrendered a long time ago.

silgryphon: The United States should do the same


We are, little by little. I predict in 10 years 3/4 of states will legalize it. The last holdouts will be Deep South states, and they'll come around eventually because they will have to.

since when do pedophiles of any sort care about marriage or the law?

The only breeders in France are Algerian or muslim in general

Actually the Catholic Church's infulence in Ireland is a shell of its former self.

Guess that what happens when you diddle little boys and then try to cover up the whole thing.

I have an idea here... Let's call gay marriage French Marriage. That way when the French next piss off neocons we can call it Freedom Marriage. Right?

WorldCitizen: Yay, another country ahead of the United States in equal rights.


Key words bolded. Do we want Washington to force the decision on the States?
What other powers do we want to grant to the current administration?
What powers do we want to grant to the next administration?

/think carefully about your answer
