The debate rages on...

As you may already know, the supreme court ruled against DOMA and California's Prop8 last week. While this is a huge victory for gay people everywhere and particularly in my birth state of California,what does it mean for people outside of the golden state? Here in Michigan,marriage is defined as being between one man and one woman thanks to a 2004 vote on gay marriage that banned it outright. That bill also bans same sex domestic partnerships for government workers thus denying benefits for partners of gay government workers. That fact doesn't get mentioned at all in the video below thanks to the woman in it trolling everyone. In more recent times, the people of Michigan have had a bit of a change of heart when it comes to gay marriage according to a slew of polls of registered voters. Luckily,today, the local fox station decided to take up the question and debate on it. Watch below as the usually ludicrously loud Charlie Langton and the only reporter to ever use me as a step ladder,Taryn Asher moderate a debate on gay rights that gets ridiculous in a hurry.
