    Wisconsin, where is Wisconsin? It’s one of those American States who’s name only crops up once in a blue-moon. But it’s there and 14,000 Gay couples are expected to register for CP. across that State. Things are gathering momentom in Gay America, the Fundies cannot win and should’nt be allowed to win.

    Wisconsin is my home state. It’s nestled under Lake Superior and bordered by Lake Michigan in midwest America. I left Wisconsin and the US when I was eighteen and have been living in Scotland for many years now, but I am only now just starting to appreciate what a beautiful place it was to grow up. It’s surprisingly liberal and open in many ways and the lakes, rivers, and forests are what make this state stunningly beautiful.

    I’m happy for all those people strong enough to have continued living there who can now take pride in this step toward the acknowledgment that there are gay people who living in this state and there partnerships can be more fully recognized.

  3. Approving a ban on gay marriage makes me less likely believe in the “liberal”ness of the state, if they do not believe that everyone is created equal and that love comes in different forms.

    Nonetheless I’m happy that some of these couples can enjoy being almost 25% married in the eyes of the law.

  4. I hope the people in Wisconsin take courgae from this small step forward on the journey towards full marriage equality and fight all the harder.

    Agreed Jae’da. Entirely. The liberalness is as I stated ‘surprisingly liberal’. Often a surprise, but a welcomed one — even in small doses. As long as it keeps coming.

  6. Nice going but keep going forward – another step in the right direction

  7. I’m a resident of Wisconsin and actually did apply for a domestic partnership in Wisconsin. The way I look at it, “it’s better than nothing”.
