Congratulations to all the gay couples in New York who have long dreamed of being legally
divorced married; late last evening NY Gov. Mario Cuomo signed into law a same sex marriage bill.
This means New York will be the sixth, and largest, state in the union to adopt gay marriage.
Also included in the bill (though wholly under-reported) is a new rite in the marriage ceremony itself. Any time a same sex marriage is performed, when asked “Do you take…?”, the respondent(s) will now turn to the audience and spit, “The fuck you lookin’ at?”
Myself? Well, frankly, I’m torn.
Do I continue with my blameless life and ascend on schedule with my brethren this Saturday?
Choices, choices, choices…
