Up then Down

Gay equality is on a rollercoaster this week. With New York legalizing gay marriage and a poll showing that a majority of Americans support gay marriage one would think that the U.S is heading in the right direction. like all good things it must come to an end or at least an obstacle. A women in Vermont where gay marriage is legal married another women who is living in the U.S on a visa, But wait since she married her wouldn't that mean that she get's a green card to stay in the U.S. Unfortunatly citezenship is a federal issue, and since the federal goverment doesn't fully regocnize the marriage her wife is going to get deported soon. Even in a state that legalized gay marriage there will still be inequality.She should be given a green card, but because the federal goverment is against full equality gay people even in Vermont is still no where near where it needs to be .This proves that we are going to need the federal goverment to start to regocnize gay marriage, but unfortunatly Obama only supports civil unions. Although he has given more benifits to gay copules there are many benifits left out. It seems that on the federal level equality will be deayed for at least 4 years and probably more depending who get's elected in 2016.
