Ten . . . No, Really, It's Ten

Argentina made equal marriage a reality nationwide yesterday:



Check out the recent comments of Christina Fernández de Kirchner, the Argentine president - a very intelligent, very well-read lady:



She's in China at the moment on a diplomatic visit, but has said she will not veto the bill if passed by Argentina's Congress.

So that makes ten countries on four continents now that recognize equal marriage:
  • Netherlands (2001)
  • Belgium (2003)
  • Spain (2005)
  • Canada (2005)
  • South Africa (2006)
  • Norway (2009)
  • Sweden (2009)
  • Portugal (2010)
  • Iceland (2010)
  • Argentina (2010)

I liked what a commenter over on Box Turtle Bulletin had to say:
the arc is bending, baby. slowly, but surely, the arc is bending.
In celebration, here's an Argentine hunk to get your weekend started right.  Remember, it's ten . . . .

An interesting assortment of countries allowing same-gender marriage. Too bad the US is lagging behind in enlightened laws.
