Score one for the Irish! Ireland has become the newest country to legalize same-sex marriages! However, what’s even more awesome than that is the fact that they’re the first country to pass the law by popular vote. This means that the Irish public was the one actually responsible for declaring that marriage equality should exist, and they cast their vote to support that!
With the US still awaiting the Supreme Court’s ruling on nationwide marriage equality, it’s incredibly refreshing to know that there are countries out there where the vast majority of the population is sensible enough to leave their bigotry in the past, where it belongs.
So, in celebration of Ireland’s amazing ruling, go out and grab a whiskey, or stare at pictures of Gerard Butler shirtless all afternoon. This is a judgment-free zone!
