The Commies in Havana are considering giving more rights to their same-sex couples than we offer here in the United States. Comparatively speaking; the Republicans have managed to limit almost any rights for gays and lesbians here in the “Land of the Marginally Free and the Not So Brave”.
Which begs the question: Is it better to live in a socialist or even communist state than it is to live in a land dictated by the GOP?
Okay, let’s tally up a review of countries that allow same-sex marriage. A trip over to Wikidom and this is what we find:
- The Netherlands
…And the Belgians too!! Have you seen what those Belgian girls look like?!! Ugh!! The Republicans routinely blast the stupid theory that if we allow same-sex marriage; how long before people will be wanting to marry their cow, their dog or perhaps their favorite chicken? Now you have a land famous for waffles, Belgian workhorses and ugly chicks and you throw in same-sex marriages…!? That’s a classic disaster waiting to happen if you’re a Republican. And yet, we’re still waiting to hear someone who’d rather marry their favorite horse in exchange of a fine looking Belgian lass holding a short-stack smothered with real maple syrup. So much for that stupid Republican theory about Man-On-Marmoset Rights thing.
Israel recognizes same-sex unions performed in other countries too. However it’s still illegal to perform same-sex civil unions (for now). But just you watch; it won’t be long before the Israelis are reminded that the gays and lesbians were murdered and tortured during the Holocaust just as the Jews were. POOF!! The Israeli Knesset will dole out full-blown same-sex civil rights faster than Yentl could slobber down a bowlful of Kreplach soup on any given night during Yom Kippur.
The Canadians and the Spanish both have laws where same-sex marriages have all of the same set of rights as their hetero-coupled neighbors.
…Damned Canadians. Sheeshe!
Civil Unions, Civil partnerships, domestic partnerships, unregistered partnerships or registered partnerships are available in the following countries not controlled or out of reach from control of the GOP:
- Czech Republic
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- United Kingdom
- …Parts of Argentina
- Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul)
Columbia?!! Uruguay?! ..And Argentina? Freakin half of South America gets more rights and respect to their GLBT citizens than they do here!! I have a better chance hooking up with a gaucho from La Paz, Argentina than I have in La Paz, Texas. …And we’d have more rights in Argentina!
Think about it: You can buy a line of blow from a man in Columbia and have a civil-union ceremony with him and have more legal rights than you would if you were in Fucking-Florida. Because if you’re gay in Florida, you can’t even adopt an orphaned child.
Now I had to look up Andorra since I’m not up on my Euro-Trash geography. This country is about the size of an Eisenhower dollar on the border between France and Spain. Andorrans, surprisingly have the longest life expectancy throughout the known world. I can marry my Star Trekkie husband in Andorra and truly “live long and prosper”. And we won’t have any “God Hates Fags” protests marching outside our funeral services. Good bye Republicans…Make room, Andorra!
Here in the United States; the following have registered same-sex partnerships on the books:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- Oregon (delays)
- District of Columbia
In the land Down Under: Australia’s laws are completely insane. But built-in provisions between states, territories and council areas have same-sex registry systems for:
Unregistered same-sex couples have rights in:
- South Australia
- Northern Territory
- Norfolk Island
- Western Australia
- Australian Capital Territory
- New South Wales
As far as I’ve heard; there hasn’t been one single marriage request for an Aussie to marry his favorite koala, ostrich or platypus. However, I did hear about some Aussie lesbian who tried to get her freaky on with a kangaroo! She was about 37, dishwater blond hair…smallish boobs…. Face it: That GOP shit about marrying your goat is crap and Americans are stupid enough to believe them.
Same sex-couples in Sweden and Iceland both get nearly everything identical to their heterosexual neighbors enjoy. But there’s an added bonus to be in a gay relationship if you hail from the land of lingonberries and Bjork:
…Partnership laws are short laws that state that wherever the word “marriage” appears in the country’s law will now also be construed to mean “registered partnership” and wherever the word “spouse” appears will now also be construed to mean “registered partner” – thereby transferring the body of marriage laws onto same-sex couples in registered partnerships. In these countries, registered partnerships are generally called marriage in daily speech.
Civil Partnerships in United Kingdom and Civil Unions in New Zealand have identical legal status to (heterosexual) marriages. These same sex-couples enjoy the same rights including tax exemptions, joint property rights as well as next-of-kin status and shared parenting responsibilities. As far as I’ve been told: There have been no immediate spike in the price of lamb chops or mutton since all of these “gay rights” have become available in these countries.
So I’ll ask the question again: Is it better to live in a socialist or even communist state than it is to live in a land dictated by the GOP? Is worrying about some idiot marrying their parakeet really seem that likely to you? Does it seem logical enough for someone who claims to live in a country that brags about “freedom”?
Now we can throw in the Commies in Cuba on the list of countries where the gays and lesbians have equal rights and the United States doesn’t. Countries where most folks have never heard of give more respect to their gay and lesbian citizens than we do here in the U.S. And at the mere mention of gay and lesbian civil recognition… and the GOP ‘s Hate Machine goes into full-tilt and fear and loathing is spread throughout the community.
…Damned Cubans. Fucking Republicans…
Al Gore has just published his “Opinion” on CurrenTV which was picked up on Pams House Blend. Although I loves me some Al Gore, no doubt there’s someone out there who’ll falsely claim Al Gore invented Gay Marriage.
