    Isn’t it amazing, New York state recognises same-sex marriages performed elsewhere, doesn’t downgrade them to civil partnerships or other forms of unions unlike the UK and we all know why. If our government recognised them for what they are, it would open the floodgate to demand the right to marry, political suicide for either party which would lead to a confrontation with the state cult, something they go out of their way to avoid. Bunch of cowards. I admire the New York State government for taking such a progressive, courageous step towards full equality, something our own government could take a page from.
