Huko Iowa leo hao wapenda jinsia moja (wasenge) Gays/lesbos wamepewa ruksa na mahakama kufunga ndoa leo. Hata saa haijapita tayari wamekwishaanza kufunga ndoa. Huko Iowa mzoee mkuona wanaume wanapiga tongue kiss na wananume na wanawake wanapiga na wanawake.
Mahakama ya huko Iowa pia imesema kuwa ndoa si kati ya mwanaume na mwanamke tu. Haya sasa tungojee kusikia watu wamepewa ruksa kufnga ndoa na mbwa, farasi au mnyama mwingine.
Hapa kwetu Massachusetts wana ruksa tayari. Matokeo yake ni kuwa wasenge wankimbilia toka states zingine hapa. Wananua condos na nymba hata iwe na bei gani kusudi wapate residency ya Massachusetts na wafunge ndoa. Na wengine wamefunga ndoa na kuomba talaka, Divorce.
Sehemu zingine hapa Massachusetts kama wewe si msenge, basi ni shida kukaa maana kuna reverse discrimination, gari yako itachomwa moto au unaweza kupigwa. Sodom & Gomorrah!
Na huko makazini usiseme kitgu kibaya juu yao maana utafukuzwa kazi. Hapa kazini kwangu kuna dada fulani ni lesbo. Hajifichi, anavaa kama dume, anatembea kama dume, nywele anakata kidume, na anajitahidi kweli kuwa mwanaume. Ila ana suati laini ya kike, inamlkera kweli. Si mtu mbaya, ila anachoniudhi ni kuja na kutusimulia alikuwa anafanya nini na mpenzi wake, mpaka saa ngapi, walichoka saa ngapi, walifanya nini na nini. Mara sijui kamtamni mwanamke gani, mara nini. Mara nyingi inabidi nitoke nje kwa kushindwa kuvuimilia maongezi yake.
Lakini nimekwisha fanya kazi nao wengi na wengi ni watu poa sana hawana matatizo, wala hawasumbui watu. Na hata sisi watu straight tuko hivyo wengine, ni watu wazuri wengine wan matatizo, na wengine wanasimulia mambo yao mpaka nini na nini.
Judge Strikes Down Iowa Gay Marriage Ban

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Less than two hours after a judge struck down Iowa's decade-old gay marriage ban, two Des Moines men applied for a marriage license as bride and groom, and county officials said they expected to see more same-sex couples doing the same on Friday.
`I started to cry because we so badly want to be able to be protected if something happens to one of us,'' said David Curtis Rethmeier, 29, who was listed as the bride on that first marriage form, with Gary Allen Seronko, 51, as his groom.
Polk County Judge Robert Hanson cleared the way for the two men on Thursday when he ruled that a state law allowing marriage only between a man and woman violated the constitutional rights of due process and equal protection.
The judge ordered local officials to process marriage licenses for the six gay couples who sued. With the ruling, gay couples across the state can now apply for a marriage license in the central-Iowa county.
County attorney John Sarcone said the county would appeal to the state Supreme Court, and he immediately sought a stay from Hanson that would prevent gay couples from seeking a marriage license until the appeal is resolved.
A hearing on the stay motion is likely next week, said Camilla Taylor, an attorney with Lambda Legal, a New York-based gay rights organization.
In the meantime, Deputy County Recorder Trish Umthun is taking calls from gay couples, five of them in the first hours after the judge filed his ruling Thursday afternoon.
The office's web site explaining how to apply for a marriage license still began with the words, ``Marriages in Iowa are between a male and a female ...,'' on Friday morning, but Umthun expected a rush of applications through the day. The marriage license approval process takes three business days.
Republican House Minority Leader Christopher Rants, said the ruling illustrates the need for a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
``I can't believe this is happening in Iowa,'' Rants said. ``I guarantee you there will be a vote on this issue come January,'' when the Legislature convenes.
Gay marriage is legal in Massachusetts, and nine other states have approved spousal rights in some form for same-sex couples. Nearly all states have defined marriage as being solely between a man and a woman, and 27 states have such wording in their constitutions, according the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Dennis Johnson, the lawyer for the six gay couples who sued in 2005 after they were denied marriage licenses, had argued that Iowa has a long history of aggressively protecting civil rights in cases of race and gender.
The Defense of Marriage Act, which the Legislature passed in 1998 declaring marriage to be between one man and one woman, contradicts previous rulings regarding civil rights and is simply ``mean spirited,'' he said.
Roger J. Kuhle, an assistant Polk County attorney, argued that the issue is not for a judge to decide.
