Gay Marriage Bill Defeated In Wyoming, But Domestic Partnership Advances

Wyoming has defeated a same-sex marriage equality bill in committee, but moments later advanced a domestic partnership bill. The marriage bill suffered a close defeat, 5-4, and the domestic partnership bill won by a 7-2 margin.

“Testimony against the bill included threats that gays are pedophiles and that same-sex activity damages colons. Hopes were high that there was bipartisan support for the legislation to pass,” Zack Ford at Think Progress reports.

The domestic partnership bill will still have to move through regular legislative steps and ultimately face a Republican governor.

Well, I almost spit out my drink when I read the bit about colon damage. Please. I dread to think about the poor men everywhere… never mind. It's so ridiculous I can't believe anyone actually said that. I love Wyoming, lived there for years but there's a reason it's "wide open Wyoming," 'cause many of the citizens there — you can look in one ear and it's "wide open" clear out the other ear. ;)
