Well, it hasn't happened yet, but Illinois will probably beat Hawaii and New Mexico. I'm surprised that New Mexico hasn't legalized it already.

They could waste time on gay marriage for a handful of people, yet ignore pension reform for thousands. Truly pathetic.

Helping thousands of gay couples and thousands of children is also important. And don't forget, many of those pensioners are gay.

Now their marriages will be legally recognized.

Thousands of gay couples? Maybe a few, but more that a few thousand pensioners. More important. By the way, how many gay couples with children are there in the state? Lets have specific numbers since you brought it up.

Yes, the legislature should focus on the most grievous harm first.

Once everyone in the state has equal rights, then they can move on to tweaking around with pensions.

There are thousands of gay couples in your state, and a good percentage of them have, or will have children. But do the numbers matter?

Based on population of your state and the percentage of folks in the population who are LGBT (3.5 to 3.8), there are an estimated 12,875,255 gay folks in your state, and 362,048 gay households. Nationwide, around 30% of gay household have raised or are raising children.

Do the math, and Google it to verify my numbers.

But are you only concerned with pensioners with children? Aren't those the ones that are MORE likely to be cared for in their old age? I would think you would be more worried about those without that family love and support.

I lost my virginity in the summer of 1967....we were both just 16, but it was true love....either that, or she had never had that much beer before.

I know a multitude of lesbians that agree with you wholeheartedly.

I certainly agree with you. Sort of. Females have a certain natural beauty (almost) regardless of their age or condition. Males need to work at it to achieve their natural potential glory.

Most hetero males aren't worth a second look.
