Same-sex marriage legalised in N.Y.

大家此時熱烈慶祝紐約通過同性婚姻合法化,我想挑兩則過去的視頻,提醒這個過程並非一帆風順。

上個月初,情勢似乎還不明朗,紐約市長5/17出面表達他贊同的立場:"Government shouldn't be in the business of telling people what they can do with their personal lives, as long as it doesn't hurt anybody," Bloomberg said. "It doesn't mean everybody has to agree, but nobody's getting hurt."

5/19有位議員還在討價還價,認為同志伴侶可以結合,但是不能稱作「婚姻」:"I understand the rights that same sex couples would like. I have no problem with that. My problem is with the term marriage itself. I've always associated the term marriage with the unification between a man and a woman,"

Already heard the objections from on Monday's Morning Edition from NPR.

New York Times makes a Time Topic on this subject, Same-sex marriage, which is worth reading.

這就是民主社會的特質,有些議題真是好事多磨,當你以為這就是定案了,有些人會從其他管道改變決議.重點是,社會各種意見都有表達的自由,但是表決的力量,很現實地,是必須被累積,要影響別人的態度,要拉票.

哈,我過2個月要去紐約待1個月喔~不過不要誤會,這不是我的目的,因為沒人可以讓我一起帶去啦~XD

我記得嘉寶回憶從北歐初至紐約,就是天氣很熱,讓她受不丁.注意溫差,別熱感冒了.

謝啦~看來我得狂喀維他命跟靈芝,以防今年第四度感冒!千萬別再來了 :-(
