Hawaii Legalizes Same-Sex Civil Unions!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikInspirationLGBT


Another massive step in the right direction!

Neil Abercrombie, the governor Hawaii, made history yesterday when he approved a measure to legalize same-sex civil unions in the state - the seventh state in the country to do so and the first bill signing of his career!

He explains:

"For me, this bill represents equal rights for everyone in Hawaii — everyone who comes here. This is, to me, the essence of the aloha spirit."

Rep. Blake Oshiro elaborates:

"I think it's amazing that we've joined a small, but ever-growing group of states that are recognizing equality. I'm proud that we've taken that major step forward."

Although it's not marriage, the new law allows same-sex couples the legal status with all of the rights and benefits of one!

Equality Hawaii's co-chairman, Alan Spector, says:

"Civil unions are not marriage, but they at least provide — on a state level — the concrete, tangible, legal rights and responsibilities of marriage. We still don't have the social significance and the social meaning of marriage … but getting us to civil unions — psychologically and legally — is such a major barrier to cross."

Exactly! We think Lady GaGa says it best: You're on the right track, baby!

Congratulations, Hawaii! Your residents should be very proud!

Equality for ALL!

    No it is not "Another massive step in the right direction!". It is another massive step in your definition of the right direction.

    Let the gay's marry so that they can suffer through divorce like straight people. Once they get the" right" to marry, they will fight to claim that it is not legitimate once they have to pay spousal support and allimony.
    You guys are so stupid. You get to play like you are married, but have non of the hardships of marriage. I am telling you that you will live to regret this one day.

    Re: BeeLahhve – Gays idolize the dumbest people like Streisand, Cher, and Ga Ga. Why can't gays pick someone really cool like Clint Howard? Actually, I am glad that gays are not loopy for Clint Howard, more Clint for me to idolize.

    Is it really necessary to make a reference to Lady GaGa is all your posts? She has absolutely NOTHING to do with this, yet you had to mention her.

    Re: FreakinAwesome – Apparently he doesn't get paid unless he mentions her 992,098,321 times per day. It's in his contract.

    Well, I have nothing against civil unions. I just don't think they should get "married." If civil unions have the same rights as marriage, then why are gays so concerned about the actual title "marriage"?

    I swear you can't go without mentioning that bitch for even one fucking post!

    Shouldn't Gov. Abercrombie be busy digging up that Obama birth certificate he promised to produce after he became governor? Where is that thing, anyway?
