There's also a huge crowd outside City Hall, cheering each newly wedded couple, handing them flowers and throwing rice as they walk down the steps. It's so beautiful to watch. I love my blue state.

Wish I could be there to cheer them on.  :-)
 
2012-12-09 03:07:59 PM  
That's very cool.
Wish I could be there.

I don't think the girl dancing behind the couple and their son knows she's on camera. 
 
2012-12-09 04:12:24 PM  
Hahaha one of the new couples with three kids, the older sister pointed at the younger brother and said he likes Twilight. Way to sell out your brother!

I ought to be down there cheering them on, but instead I'm in my warm robe, drinking coffee, with a pug asleep on my lap. But I'm there with them in spirit.
 
2012-12-09 04:16:09 PM  
WooT! ^__^

Good times are good!

This is what moral evolution looks like, kids. Glad someone brought a camera.

That all cheerfully noted, I still really don't get the rice thing.

Why rice, why throw? What this is, I don't even...

This has always confused me but somehow never enough to ever bother googling for an answer.

Anyone? Some animistic thing? Paganistic throwback perhaps?

I think little kids in suits are freakin' adorable.

Thanks, That makes more sense to me. As in "some".

/Still filing 'rice throwing' under "people are weird".

Rincewind53: Dan Savage's family is adorable


Totes. Thanks for sharing that. Dan's 'Savage Love' column is still the first thing I hit up when I pick up a Georgia Straight newspaper and I'm very happy for him, his family and all the other families like him on this most auspicious and long sought day.

Not sure which is making me happier at this moment the thought of all these newly married couples plighting their troths en masse with such obvious love or the thought of Frothy Santorum somewhere in his basement curled up into a fetal ball sobbing uncontrollably.

Their both so good it's hard to choose.

The Santorum bit has me cackling like a witch.  :-D
 
I love the impromtu band that set up outside to greet the newlyweds.

*click*

I love the juxtapositioning of the one of the two brides in two white dresses beside the one w/ two brides in snazzy suits.

Military couple are cute too. That hat is way stylin'.

TY but it's Bob the Flower I truly fear. I don't want to ever get him angry again.

*shudders*

To be fair, Seattle City Hall is a beautiful new building

which can be dusty, I understand
 
2012-12-09 05:53:41 PM  
Pathetic. A celebration of moral depravity with the full support of government in direct violation of the First Amendment. We're shredding the Constitution and dancing while this once great country burns.

Pick up your guns, boys and girls. The Democrats are just getting warmed up.

Yes, it's a lovely new building. I was going to make a reference to clogged HVAC filters, but decided to go for the dusty old building meme. Tried and true.

I've seen live streaming video of two women doing a number of other things as well.

would have been a great week to be in Seattle. First the pot prohibition ending and now this. + 2 for liberty and freedom

I hope they fully undress before consummating. It is wicked hard to get a seed-stain out of a tuxedo jacket...I've heard!
 
2012-12-09 06:02:45 PM  
So happy for all of them!
 
2012-12-09 06:03:30 PM  
Am I bad because seeing two men kissing makes me want to gag?
 
2012-12-09 06:04:44 PM  
The first two women married were hitched by Judge Mary Yu. No, it's not a Fark joke.

And the Seahawks are up 38-0 at halftime at home against the Cardinals. It's a wunnerful week to be in Seattle.

DorkusThe2nd: Am I bad because seeing two men kissing makes me want to gag?


No, but it makes you bad if you want prevent them from getting married. I think the thought of eating pussy makes a lot of gay men gag.
 
2012-12-09 06:05:15 PM  
And so ends a long period of hatred and misunderstanding due to blind ignorance and bigotry.


/Good for all of you..and i wish you the best.

I threw up in my mouth a little.
2 guys makes me sick.
2 girls..not bad, as long as they are not both uggos

I don't understand why same sex marriage is even discussed. The arguments don't make sense.
