Yeah, I'd imagine the bars in Dublin must be going crazy this weekend. Very fun.
colosseo92 saidAlthough I agree that human rights shouldn't be put to a popular vote, at least it stops Christian groups from complaining that the government forced through a change in the law as we can see the clear will of the people.
Good point as to consensus making and its expression. Also there seems a great sense of democracy to their referendum process. If only what we love to grab wasn't up for grabs.
Not to diminish but just to note that this year was the first that gays could openly parade in NYC's St. Patty's Day parade, though I forgot the story so just googled and it seems it was only one group, the NBC film crew or something. So maybe this win will set them, um, str8 for next year, to be more inclusive.
These changes finally coming to fruition after a life of living without our rights is incredible.
