And now ‘we’ can get married in all 50 states! Yes, I know the news has been out a little while, but due to various matters, I havent had the chance to comment until now. And besides, on the anniversary of independence for the US, what could be more apt?
I guess the thing that has amused me the most about it, is the people threatening to move to Canada, because of the decision, the only thing being, Canada changed their rules about 10 years ago! Russia might welcome them…oh, maybe not? 😉
Personally, I have no plans to take up the offer, mainly because of my age, my total lack of interest in sex (hardly makes me a great romantic target, lets face it), and after all these years of independent living, living with someone else might be, err, fun, now!
Yes, there were a few states where same sex marriages were fine, but to say it was a jumbled mess, would be to put it mildly. Now, wherever you are in the US, go ahead and do it, if you want to! I only wish this had been the rules for a very long time, but such is life.
As far as the Golden Age of Hollywood goes, there were a few L’s and G’s about for sure, and more than a few B’s too. Most were discreetly hidden away, though by now, its a well known fact about the likes of Garbo, but anyway…
From all I’ve seen, and read, Jean never dabbled in the Sapphic stuff. Though supposedly there were a few Hollywood actresses, who ‘requested’ her presence in their beds, so who knows? However, its definitely fair to say that Jean preferred men, seemingly those older than herself, but anyway…Given that my 1 long term partner was much older than myself, anyway…mine was female though!
But yes, I’m delighted for all those of the same sex, who wanted to marry in America, now you can go out and do it! Maybe one day, someone will want me…nope, I doubt it!
Oh, and before I finish, happy 4th of July, America!
The video, well, it has got America in the title. And yes, there is a bit of a clue in the blog title!
