Iowa Lets You Marry The Person You Love
And of course the same sort of people who pulled off the bigoted and hateful stripping of civil rights from same-sex couples will try to do it here, too. However, unlike California, Iowa requires constitutional amendments to get legislative approval in two separate sessions before going to a public vote, and doesn’t appear as if such legislation will get to a vote this session. So that’s three years of people getting married to whomever they wish, at least. Three years is a long time to try to keep people full of hate and fear, especially when they see married couples being happy and productive, and not the least hateable or fearable.
And yeah, it is significant that Iowa is The Heartland of America™. Equal rights can’t be portrayed as something wacky and crazy that they do on the coasts anymore. I’m all for that. Good on you, Iowa.
